Sources tell People magazine that NBA free agent Lamar Odom, the husband of reality TV star Khloe Kardashian, has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehab center.

The couple have had a rocky few days, during which she reportedly kicked him out of their house in a last-ditch effort at tough love and he was arrested for DUI.

TMZ reported that the California Highway Patrol pulled Odom over for driving too slowly on a San Fernando Valley highway around 4 a.m. last Friday.

He was arrested on suspicion of DUI and subsequently lost his driver’s license for one year.

"He realized he needs help," a source tells People.

Odom has admitted in the past to using marijuana. He violated NBA drug policies twice in 2001.
