This is so tragic. Lamar Odom is reportedly in bad shape yet again. And in order to not repeat his 2015 crisis, which almost left him dead, he’s been consulting with Michael Jackson’s old physician to try and beat his drug addiction. Get the EXCLUSIVE info here!
The first step in Lamar Odom‘s, 36 long battle to kick his addiction is admitting he has a problem, and he’s finally starting to make that realization. “From years of hardcore partying and drug use, Lamar’s done some damage to his organs and his heart,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He’s got a serious addiction and it’s one he doesn’t know how to handle. He really wants to live and has been consulting with Dr. Conrad Murray on how to take care of himself.” Wow, that is great news!
Some people may be alarmed by this news, seeing how the doctor was found guilty of involuntary manslaughter in the wrongful death suit of Michael Jackson. But apparently the doc has been a huge help to Lamar. “Lam’s found great comfort in the good doc. Dr. Murray’s told Lam flat out that he must stop using all substances, including alcohol, cigarettes, the works,” the insider continued. “The Dr. has customized a healthy workout regime that will help strength Lam’s heart and keep his mind active. He’s also told Lamar that sleep is his best friend and recommended he get no less than 8.5 hours each night.”
But even though Dr. Murray is advising him on the dos and don’ts of his recovery, he won’t be prescribing any meds. “The doc doesn’t prescribe Lam any medications but has encouraged him to go to rehab repeatedly,” our source added. “As a doctor, he’s known many patients fall incredibly ill and even die as a result of neglecting the body and he told Lamar he doesn’t want him to be another cadaver on the medical examiner’s table. Ultimately, it’s up to Lamar to follow Dr. Murray’s advice to live.”
The doctor, who spent two years less than his four-year sentence in prison, may not be the ideal person to consult with in regards to medical care, but based on Lamar’s recent actions, rehab, sleep, and a healthy diet doesn’t seem like the worst idea. In the past couple of months, Lamar has exhibited some extremely alarming signs, including being removed from a plane for being intoxicated, and partying hard in strip clubs!
Unfortunately, no one, including his ex, Khloe Kardashian, 35, or his kids can get through to him. So maybe Dr. Murray can hit a nerve. No one wants to see Lamar end up in the hospital again. So we hope he will take the doc’s and his family’s advice!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Lamar should be consulting Dr. Murray.
