Has Lamar Odom checked into rehab? No one really knows. Some sources say yes, others say no; but as neither Odom nor his family have released a statement it's impossible to say!

Lamar Odom is not, contrary to numerous reports, in rehab. Sources speaking to TMZ and THR have confirmed Khloe Kardashian's husband has not checked into rehab for his alleged substance abuse problem. Other sources, speaking to People magazine on Wednesday, claimed the NBA player had checked himself into the rehab centre. One source claimed "he realised he needed help."
Odom, his wife and the rest of her family have remained tight lipped on the subject of Odom's alleged drug addiction. Kardashian has hinted at the issues in their marriage, tweeting on 1st September, "As much as I wish I were made of steel. I'm not." She has previously tweeted that she could not stand by whilst "people" - presumably media outlets and their sources - "talk sh*t" about her family.

The news of Odom's alleged drug addiction comes at a difficult time for the couple as they are dealing with allegations of his infidelity and his confirmed legal trouble. Odom was arrested on suspicion of DUI after his car was spotted by the California Highway Patrol zigzagging along an L.A. freeway last Friday (30th August). The couple rendezvoused at their L.A. home, arriving in different cars: Odom in a taxi from the police station and Kardashian shortly after in her own car.
