A new source has come forward and disputed the allegation that embattled NBA star Lamar Odom is hooked on crack.
HOWEVER, the basketball player and reality star most definitely does have a drug problem. A very serious one at that.
"The problem is cocaine," an anonymous insider tells Us. "He would be high for three or four days at a time... The addiction had taken over [his] marriage."
In response to Odom sadly falling off the wagon, the athlete's wife, Khloe Kardashian held an intervention for her husband last week.
It did not go well, Lamar refused assistance and Khloe subsequently kicked him out of their home. He reportedly went off the grid after that.
But he is reportedly back at home now and friends say he's open to getting treatment of some kind, though his relationship with Khloe remains on the rocks.
She "wants to save her marriage and him," the celebrity gossip tabloid reports, while an acquaintance feels nothing but pity for Kardashian:
"I feel so bad for her. She really loves Lamar."
And, along those lines, Khloe Kardashian is focusing her energy on the personal demons that have once again come to haunt her husband of four years.
Let's all hope Odom manages to overcome them.
Khloe and Lamar: Will it last?
