Troubled NBA star Lamar Odom reportedly checks into rehab

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.
