Lamar Odom Leaves Rehab
Lamar Odom is leaving rehab after completing more than 30 days of in-patient treatment. The former NBA star now plans to return to his Los Angeles home.
Odom checked into a San Diego facility in early December. At the time, his camp insisted he was not off the wagon, but voluntarily seeking preventative help maintaining his sobriety. The decision, of course, came a year after the basketball player nearly died from a drug overdose.
As Gossip Cop reported, the near-fatal incident took place in October 2015 and left Odom fighting for his life. Despite being in a coma and then having to re-learn how to walk and talk, he miraculously recovered and was able to resume daily life. Concerns for his well-being, however, resurfaced in 2016 after Odom was photographed drinking.
After then-wife Khloe Kardashian pulled the plug on their divorce and helped nurse him back to health, Odom was again featured on “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” But the reality star re-filed her divorce petition later in the year. The dissolution of their marriage became official last December, while Odom was in rehab.
Last week, Gossip Cop busted a tabloid story falsely claiming Kardashian was “devastated” Odom’s ex Liza Morales was helping him get well. Now he’s said to be working on a reality TV project of his own. Odom will also be featured on an upcoming episode of “The Doctors,” during which he discusses his health. The athlete’s departure from rehab was first reported by TMZ.
