(LOS ANGELES) — Lamar Odom has reportedly checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center less than a week after being arrested and charged with DUI.
The NBA free agent and Khloe & Lamar star was arrested Friday at 3:54 a.m. after being stopped in Los Angeles on U.S. Route 101 showing “objective signs of intoxications,” according to California Highway Patrol.
Odom, 33, was also unable to perform a field sobriety test, police said. He has not entered a plea and was released on $15,000 bond.
He has not responded to ABC News’ requests for comment. And TMZ reported Thursday afternoon that in fact the baller has not checked himself into rehab. He’s just simply gone off the grid.
Odom is married to Keeping Up With the Kardashians star Khloé Kardashian-Odom, 29, and their relationship has been front-page news as of late, fueled by the former L.A. Laker’s alleged drug use.
Two days after the DUI charge, Odom’s wife posted a message on Twitter saying, “As much as I wish I were made of steel … I’m not.”
Odom has a history of drug use. He violated the NBA drug policy twice in 2001 and then admitted to marijuana use in 2003.
Odom, a two-time NBA champion and former Sixth Man of the Year Award winner, is unsigned but had been drawing interest from the Lakers, as well as the L.A. Clippers, where he finished last season.
