Lamar Odom Cheating with Mistress? Drug, Alcohol Abuse Update on DUI, Khloe Kardashian Divorce?
Lamar Odom was previously charged and arrested for a DUI near his Tarzana, CA home two weeks ago. Lately, there has been a lot going on with the NBA star. After being accused of cheating on his wife Khloe Kardashian, rumors of a divorce or separation began to arise. Odom has been kicked out of the house to seek help for his drug addiction, however, he doesn’t seem to be taking it seriously.
Odom was pulled over around 4 a.m. for going too slow on the highway and then proceeded to fail multiple field sobriety tests. He refused to take drug tests as well. He was booked at a local jail and was held on $15,000 bail.
According to USA Today, the former Lakers player has been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence after his Mercedes-Benz was pulled over on a Southern California freeway.
On Friday, the Los Angeles city attorney’s office said that the charges come from Odom’s most recent arrest.
The California Highway Patrol said the basketball player’s car was spotted going in a “serpentine manner.” He could face six months in jail as well as a $1,000 fine if convicted.
After being questioned by the press about his drug abuse and possible divorce with his wife, Khloe Kardashian, Odom insisted that everything was fine and that he doesn’t have a drug addiction.
“Like he’s really going to confess his issues to some man he doesn’t even know,” said a source, and added that Odom will “be fine” if he’s just left alone.
The source went on to say that the Clippers star only lied because he was “scared” and embarrassed” about the situation and is in desperate need of help to cure his alleged drug addiction. He still wants to take the first step to recovery on his own so he can return home to his wife.
Matters are not getting any better as Odom’s alleged mistress, Polina Polonsky, has stated that she has caught him using drugs when they were living together for six weeks during June and July.
In a recent interview, Polonsky stated that the affair with Odom really happened, and that she has attended his basketball games even getting better seats than Kardashian.
