Kanye thinks the world of Lamar and wants him to handle his addiction, but the rapper isn’t running to help save him. Want to know why? Keep reading for all the EXCLUSIVE details!
While Kanye West doesn’t want to see Lamar Odom struggle with his alleged addiction to drugs — the rapper wants the NBA star to “get well,” HollywoodLife.com has learned — but he also doesn’t want to be tangled in Lamar’s rehab web.
Why Kanye West Doesn’t Want To Be Involved In Lamar Odom’s Addiction Drama
Kanye, 36, considers Lamar, 33, family, and he wants his buddy to get clean. However, the Yeezus artist prefers to keep his distance during this tumultuous time.
“It’s not his place to get involved with that situation,” a source close to the rapper tells us EXCLUSIVELY. “Khloe [Kardashian] and Lamar are family to Kanye, but that’s not something he’s about to get involved in. If Lamar ever needed him for any reason, Kanye would be there without a doubt. … He’s got mad love for Lamar and Khloe and wishes the circumstances were different.”
Lamar Odom’s Drama Puts Strain On Entire Family
Our source adds that even Kim Kardashian is being affected by Lamar’s demons. And while she wishes she could wave a wand and make things perfect, we’re told she too is staying out of the drama. The source says:
It’s something that their whole family is struggling with. Kim always wants to be there for her family and when it comes to Khloe it’s no different. … It’s just something that everybody is leaving to Khloe and Lamar. Kim’s got a lot to do with North [West] and Kanye and getting her family priorities together. … They’re all there for Khloe and Lamar if they ask but it’s something Kanye is staying away from.
Now it’s your turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers. Do you think Kanye and Kim are doing the right thing by staying out of Lamar’s business?
