Former basketball player Lamar Odom has reportedly checked himself into rehab for a fresh start to the new year.


Reports say that Odom has not relapsed, but voluntarily admitted himself into rehab because he doesn’t want to slip back into his old habits. “He wants to stay clear and focused. With the divorce from Khloe (Kardashian) being finalized and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up,” a source told People. “He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better. His friends and family encouraged him to go in and he agreed and made the decision.”

Odom plans to stay in rehab for 30 days. Last October he nearly died after taking mass amounts of cocaine and sex enhancers at a Vegas brothel.

In 2009, Odom and Kardashian wed on national TV, but their marriage crumbled amid drug and cheating accusations. Their divorce has been an ongoing issue since July 2015, but has finally become official this past weekend.
