Keeping up with Lamar Odom

NEED TO KNOW
  • There are conflicting reports about whether Lamar Odom is in rehab
  • An ex-NBA star/recovering addict shares his insights on Odom’s reported struggles

He may appear occasionally in “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” but today’s new obsession is Keeping Up With Lamar Odom.

People Magazine reported late yesterday that the ex-NBA star and husband of Khloe Kardashian had checked into a rehabilitation center for drug and alcohol abuse. But not so fast! TMZ then reported  today that Lamar is NOT in rehab.

Which is it? No one knows for sure. Other than a few cryptic tweets from Khloe, the Kardashian clan has been uncharacteristically silent on reports that Lamar’s suffering from a drug addiction that dogged his NBA career and is currently threatening his marriage.

Showbiz Tonight talked to one of the rare people who know what Lamar Odom’s going through - Chris Herren, who lost his NBA career and very nearly his marriage amid years of drug abuse, shares details of his own struggle, his insights into Odom's situation, and what he thinks Lamar needs to do to get clean.

Watch Showbiz Tonight at 11pm ET/PT on HLN.
