Lamar Odom Enters Rehab For Drug And Alcohol Abuse — UPDATED

UPDATE: Multiple sources now report Odom left the rehab facility the same day he checked in.
After two weeks of mysterious reports, sources confirmed to People that Lamar Odom has checked into a rehab facility. Last week it was reported that Odom went missing for 72 hours before being found with friends in a Los Angeles hotel. Then last Friday, he was arrested for a DUI. All these reports come amidst rumblings of marriage trouble between Odom and Khloé Kardashian. Though Kardashian, for her part, has kept silent on the matter. Friends noted last week that she was "trying to get him help." Whether or not it was her support, we're glad to hear Odom is getting the help he needs.
Odom has openly addressed his drug use in the past, and referenced his family history of addiction. The former LA Clippers player once said he felt "I was fighting my father's demons," referencing Joe Odom's struggle with heroin. Representatives for both Odom and Kardashian are keeping silent on the matter, as well as speculation that the pair have separated. For now, we wish the whole family well during what must be a very difficult period. (People)
