Lamar Odom created yet another media frenzy when it was reported the NBA superstar had checked himself into rehab Wednesday.
However, a source close to Khloe Kardashian‘s husband says that is not the case.
“He has not checked himself into rehab,” a source close to the famous family told Celebuzz.
Rumors have swirled over the internet that that the former Clippers star may take that next step since his DUI arrest on Aug. 30 and after reports ran rampant that he’s battled substance addiction (specifically cocaine) for years, subsequently taking its toll on his high profile marriage.
As things seemed like they were taking a turn for the worse after his stint behind bars, his family was left concerned but still standing by him.
“All of us in the family are upset about what’s going on,” his cousin Michael Mercer previously told CB!, adding that any drug use is news to his relatives.
“This is all very new,” added Mercer.
“If that is what’s allegedly going on and he needs help, he would get my support,” he said. “If he needs to call or just lay low and get help, we are 100 percent behind him.
Even Lamar’s father Joe Odom, who’s gone through his own battle with heroin addiction, wants his son to overcome what’s made headlines.
“I told him I want him to resume his basketball career and that this s**t is not good, it’s a bad look,” he told CB!.
“I love my son.”
