More than a year after overdosing in a Nevada brothel, and just days after his divorce from Khloe Kardashian became official, Lamar Odom is checking into rehab.
According to E! News, the former NBA star has admitted himself into a rehab facility in San Diego, Calif., seemingly ready to get sober.
“It was his own decision. He wanted to work on his mental and physical health for the next chapter of his life,” a source said. “He has not fallen off the wagon, but he understands the importance of maintaining his sobriety.”
Last October, Odom was found unresponsive inside the brothel outside Las Vegas, after suffering multiple strokes. He was taken to a nearby hospital, where doctors treated it an overdose after finding a cocktail of drugs in his system. At the time, his condition was so severe, it was thought he had just hours to live.
In the months following, Odom made a stunning recovery, and by February, showed up to the Yeezy Season 3 event at Madison Square Garden, alongside Khloe.
While the incident should’ve served as a wake-up call for Odom, he’s since been seen partying, buying drinks at a bar, and there were reports from friends, who said that drug paraphernalia was all over his home.
