HoopsVibe Very Quick Call: Fame, wealth and success don't cure all ills.
This summer Clippers big man Lamar Odom has had two alleged mistresses step forward and admit affairs. Odom also flipped out while being perused by the paparazzi while allegedly being caught with one of the mistresses.
Reports have now surfaced that the root cause of Odom's issues is based on an addiction to "hardcore recreational drugs."
Lamar has had a problem for 2 years. It got so bad, last August Khloe pressured Lamar to go to rehab. Lamar went to a facility in San Diego, but he was so resistant Khloe hired private investigators to secretly stand guard at the rehab place to make sure he didn't leave. The P.I.s stood guard 24/7.
Our sources say Lamar constantly threatened to leave and Khloe made several visits to prevail upon him to stay. We're told after 3 weeks, Lamar left for good.
We're told Lamar actually stayed clean once he left rehab and was able to play well for the Clippers this past season. But when the season was over, sources say Lamar slipped deep back into hardcore recreational drugs.
