He’ll get by with a little help from his friends. As Lamar Odom recovers from an alleged drug overdose, Khloe Kardashian and his family want to help him overcome his demons by sending him to rehab, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal.
As Lamar Odom, 35, continues his long, slow road to recovery, his guardian angel Khloe Kardashian, 31, and the rest of his loved ones are already planning on sending the troubled former basketball star to rehab to beat his alleged drug problems, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
“They are already talking about how to get him clean and sending him to rehab as soon as he’s able to go,” a insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “(They are) also hiring someone to be with him 24/7 to make sure he doesn’t slip back and do drugs again.”
Lamar stared death in the face following his collapse after a reported 3-day drug and booze bender at the Love Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada, on Oct. 13. He allegedly took herbal Viagra and cocaine while he was there.
However, the former Los Angeles Laker power forward’s condition has steadily gotten better as he continues to recover from his ordeal. Now, Khloe and his family are already planning on life after he leaves hospital.
You really have to admire how the Khloe and the Kardashian family have responded to Lamar when he needed it most. And if Lamar is getting a second chance, he has to seek help to beat his demons by getting some specialist help at the best rehab for him.
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Lamar’s health has been slightly improving. He’s woken up from a coma, and he’s going to be moved out of the ICU in the coming days.
“He has seen his kids, they are moving him to another area of the hospital,” a source close to the situation revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. Our source also revealed that Lamar could be “out of the ICU hopefully” by Oct. 18 — just five days after he arrived at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
