Scott Disick to the rescue…hopefully? Khloe Kardashian is desperate for help in getting Lamar Odom to rehab after he was caught boozing on March 26, and she thinks Scott is the perfect man for the job. Get the EXCLUSIVE details here!
After making a miraculous recovery from a drug and alcohol overdose in October, Lamar Odom could be on his way to relapsing — and Khloe Kardashian wants to do something out it fast. Just days after he was spotted partying in a Sherman Oaks, Calif., bar, Khloe, 31, is enlisting Scott Disick, 32, to convince Lamar, 36, that rehab is a good idea. But will Scott be able to get Lamar the help he needs?
“Khloe is sad and frustrated over Lamar’s drinking and so she is leaning on Scott for help to get Lamar into rehab. Khloe sees this as an emergency situation as she fears Lamar could end up back in the hospital or worse if he does not get help,” a source revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Khloe doesn’t understand addiction the way Scott, who has been in and out of several rehabs, does. So Khloe is asking Scott to talk to Lamar to convince him to get the help Lamar needs.” To hear more about Lamar Odom, head over to iTunes and download the latest HollywoodLife podcast for free!
Poor Khloe! Upon hearing that Lamar was drinking over the weekend (the night before he spent Easter with the Kardashians, no less) Khloe tweeted that she felt “helpless.” Although she was the one who stuck by Lamar’s side the entire time he was hospitalized, seeing him in another party situation must have left her feeling like even she can’t keep him away from his dangerous habits. If she can’t get through to Lamar, she’s certainly hoping Scott will be able to!
Scott has had plenty of issues with partying himself, and his addictions didn’t just lead him to rehab more than once — it played a big part in his heartbreaking split with Kourtney Kardashian. Surely Scott’s experience with relapsing would be a wake-up call for Lamar, right? Well, that is, if Lamar is willing to listen…
“Problem is Lamar doesn’t want to talk to Scott, Khloe or anyone about drinking or any of his problems,” our source added. “Lamar is still in denial and until he is ready to admit he has a drinking problem, there is not anything Scott or anyone can say to him.”
Oh dear. You would think that coming as close to death as Lamar did, he would want to be a little more cautious. But rather, it seems his incredible recovery may have made him feel that his crisis was simply caused by a night of too much fun, not because he has a problem. Hopefully Scott can convince him otherwise, and that rehab is the best way to handle the issue.
Perhaps Khloe doesn’t even need Scott’s help, though. Another source told us that if Lamar doesn’t go to rehab, or at least quit partying, she’ll have to leave him behind for good. Lamar may love partying, but we have a feeling he loves Khloe more — let’s hope either Khloe or Scott can make Lamar aware of that!
