Lamar Odom Checks Into Rehab

Less than one week after his DUI arrest, Lamar Odom has checked himself into rehab.

"He realized he needs help," a source close to the basketball star tells People magazine.

In the past month rumors of infidelity, drugs and hookers have all surrounded Lamar and wife Khloe Kardashian, but it looks like he's finally on the road to recovery.

Earlier today Lamar's former mistress Jennifer Richardson voiced her concerns about his well being to Hollyscoop and confessed she knew he was troubled while they were together.

“He was very troubled and distant in the time that we spent together. You could definitely tell something was wrong with him.  He was very lost,” Jennifer told HS, “He spoke about using drugs before and that he had a problem. Lamar had been struggling with addiction for a few years, but he never did drugs in front of me or around me.”

According to People magazine, Lamar's father struggled with heroin addiction, and he once wondered if he was "fighting my father's demons."
