lamar odom

*The latest update on Lamar Odom brings a bit of clarity to yesterday’s conflicting reports on whether or not he went to rehab.

People.com says it has confirmed that the NBA star checked into a treatment facility on Wednesday morning, but then checked out Thursday afternoon, according to a pair of sources.

The 33-year-old has since been seen in Los Angeles.

As previously reported, TMZ posted a story in which it details a summer of major drug use for the troubled athlete.

According to unnamed insiders, he stayed at Hollywood’s Roosevelt Hotel in late May after being kicked out of his house by wife Khloe Kardashian. He then treated then hotel like a “flop house,” the site says, partying there with multiple users at a time and spending as much as $800 per day on his habit.

This insider also confirms that crack was among Odom’s drugs of choice.

Khloe supposedly knew about Lamar’s drug issues for two years, keeping them secret until this spring when she simply could not do it any longer. She told her husband to seek help or she would end their marriage.
