Lamar Odom checked out of a rehab centre Thursday roughly a day after seeking help for drug addiction, it is being claimed.
The NBA star, 32, checked into the facility on Wednesday morning and left Thursday afternoon with an assistant, according to two sources as reported by People magazine.
They go on to report that Khloe Kardashian’s husband was later spotted in Los Angeles.
On Wednesday, TMZ wrote that his wife had been ‘completely blindsided’ by news that the 33-year-old NBA star had entered rehab.
So, the big questions are, where is Lamar then? And do the Kardashians know his location?
The professional basketball player – who was recently arrested for allegedly driving under the influence – had entered rehab of his own accord, it was claimed.
‘He realised he needs help,’ a source told People magazine of the husband of Khloe Kardashian.
Lamar’s representatives did not respond to MailOnline’s request for comment.
The allegations come in the wake of Lamar’s alleged recent marriage troubles to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star, following claims by TMZ she kicked him out of their Los Angeles home, giving him an ultimatum to go and seek help for his drug problems.
However, the website reported that Khloe’s demands was met with a radio silence from Lamar who had gone ‘off the grid’ with his wife.
She made no mention of him as she tweeted on Thursday: ‘I love you! Thank you for loving me!’
Meanwhile, Lamar’s alleged drug dealer has claimed he spent $50,000 on cocaine in three years.
The New York-based dealer – who has concealed his identity – has come forward to allege he witnessed the former Los Angeles Clippers basketball player consume the illegal drug on as many as 10 occasions since 2010 when Lamar visited Queens in New York where he grew up.
In a video interview with Radar, the dealer said: ‘[Lamar has a] huge problem and he has a very addictive personality. It is becoming worse as you can see.’
Radar reports the dealer supplied Lamar with cocaine – which he would then freebase, a method of consumption whereby the user purifies the drug by burning it and then inhale the fumes.
The drug pusher claims Lamar even freebased cocaine before a game between the LA Clippers and the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on February 10 this year.
He alleges the sportsman spent $16,000 on cocaine.
The dealer said: ‘I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it, he spent about 16 grand. Quantity wise, it was a little under half a kilo.’
When asked how much the Lamar spent over three years, he replied: ‘Roughly, more than 50 grand… over the time I’ve known him.’
Mail Online have reached out to Lamar and Khloe’s representatives, who are yet to comment on the allegations.
TMZ also reveal that Kris Jenner hired attorney Robert Shapiro to represent Lamar because of his personal experience with drug addition.
The attorney’s 24-year-old son Brent died of a drug overdose in 2005, and Robert has since been involved with drug addition foundations.
Lamar’s father was a heroin addict and his mother died of colon cancer when he was just 12, leaving him to be raised by his grandmother Mildred.
Meanwhile, Lamar’s former LA Lakers teammates have said they feel for the sportsman.
‘It sucks to hear,’ teammate Jordan Farmar told ESPN this week regarding Lamar’s recently troubles.
‘It’s unfortunate. A couple of us have reached out to him and haven’t heard back.That’s just a sign of him going through some tough times.’
Amid the drug and cheating allegations, the basketball player had his driving licence suspended for one year after he was arrested for driving under the influence at 3.25am last Friday.
According to a report compiled by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, he showed ‘objective signs of intoxication and was unable to perform sobriety tests as explained and demonstrated.’
He was booked into Van Nuys prison at 5.01am before posting $15,000 bail and being released
His wife Khloe was pictured on Labor Day enjoying a party at Katy Perry’s house and appeared to be in good spirits.
Although the star appeared to reveal her sadness at the current situation revealing on Twitter just days before ‘I’m not made of steel’.
