Former NBA star Lamar Odom is seeking treatment at a rehabilitation centre.
Odom plans to stay at the facility for a month as a “precautionary measure,” reports People magazine quoting a source.
“Lamar is in good spirits. Lamar checked into rehab a week ago. He plans to stay for 30 days. It’s a substance abuse program, but he was not abusing drugs when he went in. He is clean. This is a precautionary measure,” the source said.
“He wants to stay clear and focused. With the divorce from Khloe being finalised and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up. He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better. His friends and family encouraged him to go in and he agreed and made the decision.”
Odom’s divorce from ex-wife Khloe Kardashian will officially be legally finalised this week.
Odom, 37, and Kardashian, 32, tied the knot on national TV in September 2009. The marriage fell apart after Odom’s cheating scandal and drug relapse.
Kardashian first filed for divorce in 2013 and they both signed divorce papers in July 2015, but a few months later, she called off their divorce following Odom’s near-fatal overdose in October 2015.
She, however, reinitiated divorce proceedings in May and the marriage will be terminated this weekend.
