A new report says it was Lamar Odom's decision to move out of the home he shared with Khloe Kardashian, and that he does not want help for drug abuse.
The NBA star has turned a blind eye to his addiction issues and ignored her ongoing plea for him to get help, to the point where the dude up and left.
After reports surfaced that Lamar packed his bags earlier this summer and left, most people assumed Khloe kicked him out. Not the case, a source says.
“Khloe always knew that Lamar dabbled with drugs, but she didn’t get concerned until summer when he moved out of their house," says the insider.
His reason for leaving? Simple. "So he could do whatever he wanted to,” a friend says. “He got sick of her nagging him to get help, so he moved out.”
Whatever you think of her family, it appears that Khloe Kardashian wants to save Lamar and their marriage, and that he wants none of it at this rate.
This is admirable on her part, and you have to feel for what she's going through.
Most drug addicts want to be left alone - or in his case, with people like Polina who don't care - so they can abuse drugs without having to hide it.
Anyone who is enabling Lamar with his drug use is obviously not a real "friend," but Polonsky says he had his drug use under control while he was with her.
Yes, she really said this. He crashed at her place and smoked crack there, but not anywhere near to the point where he's at now, she said in an interview.
Eventually, Khloe confronted Polina, and he took a turn for the worse.
After Kardashian came at her like a caged animal, the NBA star left, and now feels most comfortable with his so-called friends on Skid Row, insiders say.
That would be a dangerous, drug-infested area in L.A.
“Lamar feels like he’s all alone,” the insider explains. “And the people he’s with, they make him feel good, and they don’t say no to him or anything."
"Sadly, he’s got a lot of friends in this town and a lot of them are downtown, which ain’t at all the best area for Lamar to be in unless he’s at Staples.”
It's a far cry from the arena where he used to help lead the Lakers to titles, while very close by geographically. Will he ever get back on the court?
More importantly, will he pull himself out of this spiral before it's too late and we're publishing something far worse than cheating and drug rumors?
