Khloe Kardashian gave Lamar the ultimatum that she would file for divorce if he didn’t go to rehab, but is that the thing that finally led to him checking into a facility on Sept. 4? A source explains Lamar’s true motivation to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
Lamar Odom checking into rehab on Sept. 4 appeared to be the first step on a long road to not only improving his health, but improving his marriage with Khloe Kardashian. Khloe’s tireless efforts to get through to him and help him get clean seemed to finally pay off, but is that actually the case?
Lamar Odom: Why He Checked Into Rehab
Unfortunately, maybe not! “As much as he is looking to get better to improve his family and his marriage, the main reason he is trying to get back to a healthy lifestyle is to get back into the NBA,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com exclusively.
At just 33, Lamar is not ready for his basketball career to end, and he’s going to do whatever it takes to stay NBA-relevant, even if that means moving to coaching or broadcasting. “He doesn’t want to be removed from the lifestyle he is accustomed to that comes with the NBA,” the source adds. “But now that his options are drying up and currently nonexistent, the real reason that made him go was to get a job again in the NBA.”
Whether Lamar could even get a job after everything he’s been through is still up in the air.
Lamar Odom: Taking Khloe Kardashian’s Support For Granted?
It’s not exactly a good sign for Lamar and Khloe’s marriage that she wasn’t his first reason for going to rehab. Khloe may have gotten what she wanted by Lamar checking into a facility, but her mood may be dampened once she realizes what Lamar’s priorities are.
“He takes Khloe for granted,” the source says. “He knows she will be with him regardless, it’s his other ventures that he is more worried about currently.”
Lamar better watch it — it’s not such a guarantee that Khloe is going to stand by him forever. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Let us know!
