Lamar Odom arrested for DUI: failed sobriety tests, refused chemical tests

Kardashian son-in-law Lamar Odom just keeps getting in trouble. In recent weeks, two women have publicly come out claiming to have had relationships with Lamar. Both alleged mistresses claimed that Lamar’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, knew about their relationship with her husband. One of the women said that Khloe hired a private detective to trail her and regularly tried to intimidate her.

Last week allegations came out that professional basketball player Lamar had a drug problem that included Oxycontin, Ambien, crack and/or cocaine, depending on which reports you believed. Many people thought those stories came straight from the Kardashian/Jenner camp and were meant to discredit Lamar after he humiliated Khloe. Whether PMK planted those stories or not, that didn’t mean they were fabricated. Now we have some evidence that they could have been spot on. Lamar was arrested for DUI after driving erratically in LA this morning. It’s unknown whether he was drunk and/or on drugs because he refused to take a chemical test after failing field sobriety tests. Whatever he was on, he wasn’t fit to drive.

Odom, 33, was pulled over on the 101 Freeway in the San Fernando Valley at 4 a.m. PST for driving too slowly. The California Highway Patrol then booked him on a DUI charge and took him to the Van Nuys Jail, where he was held on $15,000 bail. TMZ reports that he failed more than one sobriety test during the incident.

“Today at roughly 3:25 a.m., our officers observed a white Mercedes SUV driving eastbound on the 101 freeway approaching Sepulveda,” Sergeant Denise Joslin told Us in a statement. “Our officer observed it weaving in traffic lanes at a slow speed. We conducted an enforcement stop. The driver continued eastbound to Coldwater Canyon Blvd; he came to a stop just south of the freeway, [in] the Sherman Oaks area, and was identified as Lamar Odom. He showed objective signs of intoxication, was unable to perform field sobriety tests, and he was subsequently placed under arrest and transported to LAPD’s Van Nuys facility and he was booked there at 5:01 a.m.”

“He refused to take a chemical test,” Joslin added. “In his case, since he was a refusal, generally that involves some longer holding times. Also, his detention at the facility will be dependent on if he has any other warrants.”

[From US Weekly]

Radar has a follow-up report that describes how Lamar was driving and includes a quote from the California Highway Patrol (did anyone else get this song in their head?) information officer, Leland Tang. The CHiPs representative tells Radar that Lamar was very dumb to refuse the chemical testing and that he faces an automatic year’s suspension of his license:

Lamar Odom was driving 50 mph on the 101 freeway. He was driving in a serpentine manner which is pretty bad. That is like when the officer does a freeway break. Across all the lanes of the freeway. I’m surprised he wasn’t rear ended.

He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests.

That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.

If this is true, Lamar should have just taken the drug tests. The California justice system is incredibly lax for celebrities.

Of course TMZ is all over this too. They add the detail that Lamar’s car was searched and had no drugs or alcohol in it. They’re also wondering over on TMZ Live if Lamar is headed to rehab soon. It sounds like a good plan for him considering the sh*tstorm that is his personal life. If someone is messed up enough to drive under the influence, they probably need rehab.

    Maybe this will be the wake-up call he desperately needs to get his crap together (doubt it, but still)

  2. Shelly says:

    Yes, you should refuse those tests, losing your license or not. Any defense lawyer will tell you that.

    • Suckmyfarts says:

      Yes, unless you’re sober ;)

    • Gabriella says:

      Yeah that’s what I was coming here to say. Always refuse.

    • AmyLynne says:

      Maybe I’m blissfully ignorant, but why are you supposed to refuse?

      • Nina W says:

        Tests can provide incontrovertible proof of whatever he was on. If he doesn’t take the tests they can’t actually prove he was on anything all they can say is that he failed their field sobriety tests.

    • Hakura says:

      I agree, as to the reasons for always refusing (unless you’re totally sober).

      I can’t see myself personally ever getting into a situation where I was driving & wouldn’t be sober, but I know if I ever did something like that, I’d probably feel so guilty I’d take the test anyway.

    • Jacqueline says:

      Like my husband says “you can can beat the rap but you can’t beat the ride” Do as your told, legal wrangling later.

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

        It looks like he made the right decision and would have been more trouble had he followed orders. Looks like he is an independent thinker which is perhaps why he didn’t fit with the k klan.

    • CF says:

      So odd that the cop spokeman is saying that, I would think they would realize they shouldn’t say that. YOU SHOULD ALWAYS REFUSE the chemical test if you are under the influence (not that you ever, ever should be) But lamar has lost his license but will not get the actual DUI.

    • STOPGOOP says:

      YES! Don’t listen to the cops. Unless you are totally sober don’t ever take the chemical sobriety tests. My husband is a defense attorney and he advises our friends and clients to never take the tests.

      • NerdMomma says:

        I really hate this thread where everyone is advising each other how to get away with committing a crime that puts others at risk. Here’s some good advice for you all: don’t ever put yourself in a situation where you have to decide whether or not to take the test. Drive sober. Don’t kill yourself, your passengers, and other innocent people you’ve never met. How hard is that?

      • Hakura says:

        @NerdMomma – Although I said above that I could see the ‘common sense’ aspect of said advice (especially from the perspective of a defense attorney/someone who knows one).

        But I agree, it’s disheartening to realize that so many would have need of/would actually use said advice. Getting away w/it will only encourage a lot of people that they’ve either done nothing wrong, or that they’re somehow ‘above the law’. (complete assholes).

    • Nemesis says:

      Here’s an idea. DON’T drive under the influence. Then you don’t have to worry about submitting.

  3. Dirty Martini says:

    And the announcement that he is in rehab will be here in 5…4…3…

    Thank goodness that got him off the streets before someone was injured or killed.

  4. Suckmyfarts says:

    Good thing no one got hurt. Hopefully, now everyone will realize that the kardashians were not lying about his issues. I really do believe this dude have some serious problems. He’s experienced a lot of death/loss in his life. I’m not giving him excuses but that can really break someone.

  5. Joan says:

    the Kardashian 15 minutes are almost this point all their business have failed even the dp collection in the UK now sells for half the original price,even with all the hype.Kris talk show will be cancelled and after that it’s out the door for them.kuwtk8 ratings Mau be good but I dont think they have any other thing.kanye and Kim will breakup and it will be bad.but in this case,kanye will crush she and her way he will leave north with them.from here on,I am starting to pity them because their whole empire is about to come down in flames.

    • Hakura says:

      @Joan – Unfortunately, don’t forget that Kris still has the 2 young Jenner girls (& her ever-increasing stock of grandchildren) to exploit. Sadly, there’s nothing Bruce can do about it now. (I’m not even sure there ever was).

      The girls have already been raised to believe fame/money are the end-all-be-all of life, by far more important than an education, talent, family, or morals, & they look up to their sisters. They’re normal teenagers, which means they want to be gorgeous/cool/popular/party/be sexy&wear very little clothing/have boyfriends/go shopping at Chanel & drive expensive cars. It’s way too late for Bruce to change them or convince them of all the negative that comes w/the sugarcoated-immoral version of Kris’ explanations about life/careers/whats’ right & wrong.

      I don’t really ‘keep up w/this family, but I haven’t heard anything about KimYe having problems? The last few times I saw them, they seemed truly happy. I heard rumors they were planning to get married (even after previously saying they never intended to). A huge, extravagant, wedding (full of celebrity guests) would cause major +PR/renewed interest, & may significantly expand (what feels like their ages long) 15 minutes. You know Kris won’t let that opportunity go, especially after KimYe so stupidly overplayed their ‘hand’ in regards to releasing those baby pics. (Any idiot would’ve known better than to wait, knowing ‘baby competition like no other’ was about to enter the field.

  6. janie says:

    I defended him a few days ago & thought she was Involved… I apologize for everything I said. This man cares no one. I’m sorry & feel awful for blaming Khloe. Forgive me all.

  7. bettyrose says:

    Did the Kardashians do this to him or was he just easy prey for them because of his addictions?

    • blue marie says:

      that is a good question..

      I don’t think the Kardashians caused the addiction (obviously), but they sure as hell threw him to the wolves when he stopped toeing the line. I just find it odd that within a week we learn of his addiction and then his life falls apart. It wouldn’t shock me if there had been a phone call made to the cops from PMK, cause wasn’t there a report he was back at home with Khloe? I dunno, I may be wearing a tin foil hat but I like this family less and less and the water ain’t clean.

      • Tapioca says:

        He cheated on his wife with multiple women – if he were my husband I’d throw him to the wolves!

      • Shannon says:

        I agree. They wernt the cause. But they have known the whole time, I’m sure of it. Now that he’s been caught cheating they’re throwing everything against the wall

      • Liberty says:

        I am not going to defend a cheater, but this is very sad re addictions and screwed-up lives as well. Plus I have to side eye the Kardashian cauldron of ick as well. Men don’t fare well in that nest.

        Maybe PMK thought Lamar wasn’t necessary now that they have their claws into both Ye and Scott, and that what she really needed is a free Khloe to generate dating headlines and adventures in the next season of KUWTK: so, cue spill the beans time.

      • jwoolman says:

        My first thought was also that Mama Ten Percent notified the police to look out for him, not because of real concern but hoping this would happen. Seems to take a lot before police in that area bother pulling people over for possible DUI and driving slowly isn’t what usually triggers it (depending on how much he really was weaving). He shouldn’t be driving at all if he’s taking anything, legal or illegal. But I really don’t trust the timing of all this and I especially don’t trust the motives of Mama. The TMZ saga has been the strangest I’ve ever seen, something very weird is going on and the focus of strangeness is not Lamar. Their stories have been written in a melodramatic manner and in a female style. The melodrama is not really characteristic of their usual stories. Sounds like a certain someone is e-mailing another certain someone and they copy-paste into their articles.

        I think people are right about lawyers advising against taking any tests, though. Makes it easier for them to get their clients off because it weakens the state’s case. I’m sure that’s why refusal means automatic license suspension these days, which I think is a splendid idea.

      • Ginger says:

        Speaking from my own experience…you can only take so much betrayal from someone in a marriage when there are lies/substance abuse/driving drunk/stoned, etc. putting themselves and others in danger and possibly losing a job and thus support for your family. I really feel for Khloe. I’ve been through this and it tore my marriage apart. I had to hold everything together while my (now ex) husband went through rehab. We still ended up splitting after trying for years to get back on track. Sometimes you just have to know when to give up. There’s no shame in that. You can only know what’s good for you when you are inside of the relationship…not the outside looking in. I hope Lamar seeks rehab and gets his life back in order. He looks very thin and frail.

      • UsedToBeLulu says:

        @Ginger: What you say is so true. What I didn’t realize (nor did my ex) was how suddenly it occurred to me that I Maybe it had something to do with the near nervous breakdown I was having when it was time for him to come home from rehab.

  8. Sabrine says:

    The Kardashians did nothing to him. He made his own choices and the ones you make dictate your life.

    • UsedToBeLulu says:

      ^This! Addiction is a CHOICE not a disease. When people finally take responsibility for their own life & sobriety – THAT is when things turn around for them and they can keep them turned around.

      • Maum says:


      • Mauibound says:

        Yep, my husband who has had issues in the past thinks that calling it a disease is a cop out. Using is a choice. You don’t catch addiction through a virus or bacteria and it’s not a rogue cell causing cancer. I personally am not sure not having a drug or alcohol issue. I am completely sympathetic for those who do struggle with addiction and the family members that suffer right along with them

      • Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

        Now what about all those kids being drugged by the pharmaceutical companies in the name of the ‘disease’ ADD, Adhd etc do those kids have a ‘choice?’ These are highly addicting medications and the pharmaceutical companies are getting guaranteed income for life by starting the process of addiction early.

      • Maum says:

        What about bipolar disorder? Chronic depression? Post natal depression? You don’t ‘catch’ those either, but they are conditions that can kill you too.
        Besides there studies now suggesting that addicts seem to have a genetic predisposition to their addiction.

      • Cirque28 says:

        People who call it a disease don’t mean it’s like a virus or cancer.

        They mean it’s a disease like diabetes is a disease or a severe peanut allergy is a disease. It’s a genetic predisposition (you might even call it a ‘weakness’ in your genetic makeup) where something that is reasonably benign for most people goes haywire in you and can even kill you. So you can’t afford to be relaxed around it and think “oh, it’s a party, this little bit of sugar/peanuts/champagne/cocaine won’t hurt me because Mary Lou over there did it and she’s fine/can still breathe/isn’t going to go totally off the rails tomorrow and use until she runs out of money and friends.” From that viewpoint, it’s wise and not remotely a cop-out to think of it as a disease.

  9. Did the Kardashians do this to him or was he just easy prey for them because of his addictions?
    How can they do this to him? He’s a grown man, who makes his own decisions. Accountability people!!

    • Kim1 says:

      I guess they are responsible for his drug use in 2001, cheating on Liza, cheating in college…GMAB

      • drdoolittling says:

        And U give me a break if you think this public airing of his misfortunes is not due to the Kardashian clan. Of course they didn’t cause his addiction (as EVERYONE ELSE has admitted as well) but they had absolutely no quarrels about giving all of this information to the public and trying to throw him under the bus.

        And I’d put $$$$$ on the line that Rob and even Khloe were doing the yay with him. But now that he is not doing what they want and under their full control, they are letting everyone know what HE is doing

  10. Sam says:

    I’m a firm believer that you can believe BOTH that Lamar has a serious drug/alcohol issue (and that his actions are his own) AND that the treatment he has received from the press (and PMK who presses them on) is horrible. This isn’t an either/or proposition. Lamar should be prosecuted for what he did, and PMK is still a piece of trash for providing public details about his personal and medical issues. You can believe both at the same time.

    • Cirque28 says:

      Totally agree. You can have serious, ongoing issues with drugs and also be sold out by awful, ruthless people. If anything, these 2 issues go hand in hand.

      If PMK and Harvey Levin are such dear friends, she could have stopped TMZ from writing about LO. Or at least put a kinder spin on it.

    • Nina W says:

      Big surprise that he gets pulled over so soon after his dear mother-in-law decided to screw with his life. He clearly has problems and his evil in-law is one of them.

  11. Jay says:

    This rehab thing seems like such a cop out. So many celebrities just check into rehab at the first sign of bad PR, come out and then get caught doing the same thing. I read that rehab and other programmes have the same success rate as people who try to quit on their own. There’s no magic bullet. You either want to beat it badly enough or you don’t. Rehab is just a smoke screen it seems.

    • jwoolman says:

      There’s some reason Lamar seems so resistant to rehab. Maybe it’s the experience he had last year, when the KKlan pushed him into it and even stationed their private guards (!) to keep him there? Maybe it’s a control and trust issue, centered on the K Klan. A judge could order rehab vs jail, we’ll see which he takes. And if it can be done without interference from the toxic K’s. He has to see managing his drug issues as entirely separate from the noxious K’s and klingy Khloe (who has always had an air of desperation concerning proving how much in love they are).

      • Hakura says:

        @jwoolman – I agree, that his avoidance of rehab is at least in some part caused by the previous experience he had. While on one hand, I’m sure *many* family & friends (who’ve watched someone destroying themselves & their relationships) have felt desperate enough to try forcing it, even to the extreme measures Khloe went in hiring those guards. But it was definitely wrong on her part, & has done damage to his view of rehabs.

        You just can’t FORCE an addict to go to rehab/get sober. If you have to force them, then it means they aren’t ready/& or haven’t accepted that they really even have a problem.

  12. Simply Red says:

    Hope he gets a handle on his problems whatever they are

  13. FingerBinger says:

    It does seem like the K Klan is out to get Lamar, but Khloe had a DUI a few years back. Some people just make really stupid decisions.

  14. janie says:

    One of the sites say his license have been suspended for a year. This guy doesn’t need to be thrust in the tabloids, but PMK has to be in the news, regardless what it does to anyone. I agree about Kanye… Kris doesn’t want to start anything with. He will destroy that bunch & take his baby.

    • Hakura says:

      @janie – “I agree about Kanye… Kris doesn’t want to start anything with. He will destroy that bunch & take his baby.

      Ugh. Even as much as I can’t stand any of them, I would so hate to see that happen to them…Mostly for the sake of the child (& his cousins), but as insufferable as Kim is, I just can’t see her being a ‘horrible, cruel’ type of person. She doesn’t come off very bright, but seems to mean well, most of the time…

      (‘Them’ is not including PMKris. I swear that woman already has a ‘paid off’ place waiting for her in Satan’s neighborhood. I’m sure her late ex-husband got a really great deal on the place, after agreeing (after it’d been more than 20Yrs since he’d practiced law) to legally represent one of Lucifer’s close personal friends. (I figured, when he found out Talat Pasha had moved in a few houses down, he decided to just let Kris have it, in the divorce.)

      *****(Just want to make sure I say that although my end comment was purely for satire/cynicism, my mention of the downright evil Talat Pasha was not meant to (at ALL) make ‘fun’ of or discount the indescribable horrors he brought the world. If anything comes across offensively, I wholeheartedly apologize).

      • Sassy says:

        Thanks for mentioning that Robert Kardashian, the “famous lawyer father” of the K’s was not practicing law when the OJ Simpson murder case went down. He reactivated his law license and was an errand boy to the real lawyers. He ran an entertainment related business. He was friends with Uncle OJ and they played tennis together. I also think he covered up valuable evidence.

  15. Toni with an I says:

    I told someone last week that Lamar would soon have a DUI.. This is stereotypical in high profile divorce.. “Dirtying up” the other party.. The offended spouse hires a PI, they tail the spouse until they see them commit an offense.. A DUI arrest works in Khloe’s favor.. While I’m sure he was inebriated, the timing of this is indicative of Satan’s homegirl’s handiwork..

    • Venus says:

      I really don’t understand how the Ks are behind this — he was apparently driving all over the highway, so this mess is on him.

    • Kim1 says:

      Or one of his drug buddies sold him out

      • Kim1 says:

        TMZ has texts from his crackhead buddy

      • drdoolittling says:

        Nope. those were the KKK’s. Otherwise, how would TMZ know that Khloe was standing over him while he was texting. The sidepiece could not have known that little piece of information; only someone with Lamar, ie Khloe.

        And while dui’s are not good, this is so clearly a set-up. He was leaving him and Khloe’s place, which means she just called the cops and narced on her own husband. So she sucks as hard as the rest of the Klan. I hope karma is clean and swift with this family; they are in for suffering and I for one, cannot wait.

      • Kim1 says:

        Were the texts from his crackhead buddy ? Yes You people act like this guy is not a hot mess drugging and cheating.He did those things not the K family . He destroyed his career.Stop blaming his issues on rhe

      • Kim1 says:

        them.He was a a cheater and drug user before he met them.I cant stand Kris Jenner but LO and Kanye are Grown Ass Men

    • Kiddo says:

      What he did was against the law and dangerous to other people and himself. The fact that it became public may be because of them directly or indirectly. I don’t follow sports, but clearly he has a higher profile because of his association with the Kardashians. However, if he refused an intervention, this might be something that actually saves his life and puts innocent people at lower risk. I question that it can be dirtying up someone when there are concrete facts. This wasn’t innuendo about behavior. He failed sobriety tests. It is very rare that someone who is sober can’t perform them.

  16. erin says:

    He and Khloe always seemed to be so stable – even tough they married within 30 days. Sad to see his life falling apart like this. I´m glad nobody was injured and I hope he gets his act togehter. I just hope that he has people in his life who really care about him and help him on his way and don´t use this as good PR/ bad PR in an eventual divorce case..

    • Nina W says:

      I hate to break it to you but reality shows are scripted and staged and everyone plays their roles. You may have watched these two on TV but you know nothing about what their marriage is really like.

      • Cirque28 says:

        That’s probably why Erin used the word seemed. She didn’t claim to know “what their marriage is really like.”

  17. tealily says:

    This’ll be a heads up for all those people who were saying this was just a Kardashian smear campaign. I said nobody would be publishing this stuff if it wasn’t true enough for them not to get themselves sued.

    Really sorry to see this happening. I always liked him. No excuse for cheating and he never should have started using drugs, but at this point it is an illness and it is destroying his life. I hope he’s able to lick it.

    • Nina W says:

      No body denies his problems but the Klan knew about them before, choose to publicize them now and will use his problems as fodder for their shows. They’re manipulative, horrible excuses for human beings and they make me want to puke.

  18. Noinin says:

    I’ve always liked Lamar and I’m sorry to see him like this. Even if the drug allegations are true, I still think PMK is giving all the info to the medias. I don’t think Khloe is involved otherwise he wouldn’t have come home to her, but she is powerless anyway. As I said before, if they managed to hide Rob’s sizzurp addiction despite the massive weight gain, they should be able to hide Lamar’s addiction too.

    • Suckmyfarts says:

      Rob has addiction problems?

    • jwoolman says:

      Khloe is probably indirectly involved, just using her mom as her attack dog. Mom came with her on that odd attempt to chase away a mistress. Some of the stuff about secret meetings etc most likely came from Khloe telling her mom, who then immediately told the tabloids her own embellished version. For instance, I imagine somebody at that meeting with Lakers/Clippers peoPle plus his agent decided to inform the wife (Khloe) and then the wife tells the mother-in-law who tells the world. It’s really been nasty and makes it understandable that he’s really racing toward the cliff now. He must feel he can’t trust anybody, although he still wants to believe Khloe isn’t involved. This seems like an amazingly bad approach to helping someone with a drug problem.

  19. Paloma says:

    Why did he have two bottles of cologne in his car? I can think of one obvious reason — to freshen up for women.

  20. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    At least he didn’t get talked into any plastic surgery pre-split.

    • Cirque28 says:

      This made me LOL! I’m sure they tried. “But Lamar, don’t you think it’s kind of weird that you can move your face??”

  21. Cirque28 says:

    It’s a sad irony that just when a user is under the most pressure to quit, they most want to lean on drugs or alcohol. The last few weeks must have been hell for Lamar. But he could clean up and still go on to do great things. He’s already well liked and his substance issues could humanize him even more to his fans. (Although, dude. Stop cheating on your wife, for godssake.)

  22. embra says:

    all of his recent pics remind me of Tyrone Biggums from Chappelles Show, especially the recent one in the white burnout tee where he is scratching his arm.

  23. vketjo says:

    It’s like one of your California Mud slides….and Lamarr is trapped down at the bottom of the canyon while Kris Jenner is standing on top breaking away more and more of the muddy slope so it slide down on this man burying him deeper and deeper….And as she shovels more mud she’s screaming out ….”You should have listen to Mother…No wire hangers” In other words Lamar is a goner for sure…
    I have don’t doubt that he has problems with pills I know what pain can do and if he got hooked on Oxycontin while being treated for pain he has problems but that Khloe has had to know about it all this time and condoned it by not doing anything about it till he started cheating tell you all you need to know….All this time she has been selling the public on her idea marriage, wanting a baby etc while all the time knowing he had problems..tell you now that all this Saint Khloe crap is just what it is crap…..
    He must have or know something really damaging to the Kardashion for them to go after him like this….this is pure hate revenge being played out on the net……

    • Cirque28 says:

      But people hide massive problems from their partners all the time. Especially substance abuse.

      IF Khloe knew, does her silence necessarily mean she condoned it or was trying to have a saintly image? It’s a pretty difficult situation for a young woman to be in. You’re desperately trying to keep this person alive, hopefully get him clean, stay loyal, don’t betray his secrets, and don’t alienate him to the point that he goes completely off the rails. With a person who was supposed to be your rock. It’s confusing and not fun.

      As for Khloe wanting a baby… it happens. If all addicts stopped reproducing tomorrow, the birthrate would plummet.

      • Nina W says:

        She reportedly had him followed by private investigators, I have no doubt she is aware of his substance abuse problems and has been all along.

    • eribra says:

      I had a man hide a drug problem from me 3 times. I do not consider myself a stupid person, in fact, I’m a nurse- how? Because he was an excellent con man, because I am a classic enabler, because I thought our son was enough to keep him sober. Each time I found out, total surprise. fool me once and all that- I just could not fathom years of drug free and then – bam! And the last time- I remember telling him either right before he started or right when he started how perfect our life turned out to be, everything was finally falling into place… I feel sorry for Khloe and believe me, it’s possible she didn’t know, and when she found out, I’m sure she thought she could save him. A baby would save him,her losing weight would save him, telling the world how wonderful he was would save him. Screw love, run away as fast as you can!

  24. Ray says:

    I very rarely feel sorry for drug users, but I feel mild pity for him, I do hope he pulls himself together before something terribly bad happens to him, mostly for khloes sake because I like her

    • Nina W says:

      Yeah because drug use represents a major lack of moral character right? Only bad people use drugs right? All kinds of people have drug problems and none of them deserve to simply be dismissed by people because of it.

        No need to get snarky because of my own personal feelings. You have your opinions and feelings I have mine.

    • drdoolittling says:

      If you can’t feel sorry for people suffering, then that says more about your moral character than drug addicts. You must be a great person and perfect, at that.

    I wonder if Khloe knew about Lamar’s addiction issues, before they got married, and she chose to look the other way or he did a great job of hiding it from her before they got married. I don’t think that his drug issues are due to marrying into the Kardashians. There probably is a history of drug addiction. I remember reading that they sort of rushed into marriage after knowing each other only for a little time.

  26. Jayna says:

    Sorry. Any criminal lawyer will tell you always to refuse those tests.

  27. Jaded says:

    The pressure of being involved with that f*cked up family, especially Big Mama, must be awful. Assuming he was a drug user before he married Khloe, the relentless pressure of 24/7 media coverage would drive anyone to ramp up the recreationals. Both he and Khloe need to get away from the spotlight if they want to save their marriage and his career.

    • Lex says:

      He is not forced to be on television. He appeared because he wanted to. He is a grown man and can decide for himself what he wants to do.

  28. Carolyn says:

    Time in rehab would be like a holiday away from the Kardashians.

    Nice. Now he and Khloe have matching DUI’s. Keeping it Klassy!

  29. Jessica says:

    The dude was driving drunk and likely high as a kite (you don’t refuse the chemical tests if you aren’t on anything), so unless the theory is PMK tied him to a chair, forced booze and drugs into him and then pointed a gun to his head and told him to drive…it’s entirely, 100% his own fault.

    If PMK is somehow responsible for getting him arrested, how is that a bad thing anyway? If you know someone is driving drunk or high, the right thing to do is call it in. It really doesn’t matter what your reasons for doing so are. PMK may have been wanting revenge, but she made the roads safer for everyone else in the vicinity and that’s more important.

    Oh, FFS.

    Guess it just goes to show…just because the K-people are fame whores, it doesn’t mean they’re total liars. At least not 100% of the time. Total hot mess.

    • Nina W says:

      They knew about Lamar and picked the time to leak the story, right after his infidelity hit the news. They’re still liars, peddling the perfect marriage crap, the poor victim Khloe, etc, etc. It’s all a pack of lies and editing held together with straining spanx.

  31. Jade says:

    If he was indeed on drugs, would he be barred from playing basketball?

  32. Debbie says:

    Re: CHiPs theme song? Always. I just have have to see CHP and it’s there.

  33. Zoe says:

    I am keeping my fingers crossed that by this time next year, or sooner if possible, we don’t hear any more about this fame ho’ing family than we now hear about that gawdawful Kate G!

    It’s headed that way, tho may take a bit longer than I want it to. Kim will be around much longer because of Kanye, but we all know that’s short term as well.

  34. Kim1 says:

    TMZ has texts between him and his crack buddy .I said yesterday one of his drug buddies sold him out

  35. Denise says:

    It is not like me at all to feel a bit of sympathy for anyone related to the Kardashian clan (except maybe Kendall), who cheats on his wife (even if she is a Kardashian) and especially someone who endangered the lives of others on the road which is usually an immediate hate-on for life. But for some reason I feel sadness for this guy, not anger. Maybe it’s because his expression is some of these photos is one of being soul-crushed.

  36. Lucy2 says:

    I feel a little but sorry for him because of the tabloid shitstorm PZK is unleashing on him, but he is responsible for his own choices and seems to make some bad ones.
    I’m disgusted he drove in that condition and thankfully no one got hurt. Hopefully he gets whatever help he needs, and the media and PMK all back off and let him have the time and privacy to get better. That’s a tough thing to go through and the scrutiny is only making it worse.

  37. Sarah says:

    Doesn’t PMK license plate read “LakerMom”? Ha

  38. Lucrezia says:

    Question for those saying “always refuse the test” … how does that make it better?

    Here in Oz, refusing the test means the maximum penalty (so you might as well take it and hope you fall into the lower range category) and is treated the same as if you tested positive for things like bail, or employment contracts (e.g., a truckie who isn’t allowed any DUI would also lose his job for a refusal). I can’t imagine a scenario where you’d be better off refusing.

    Obviously the US laws are different, I’m wondering how.

  39. Fargus says:

    IMO Cry for help, to Get him out of that Kardashian clan, poor guy. I feel sorry for him, glad he didn’t hurt himself or anyone else while driving. I don’t watch the show but those sister’s all seem a bit much to deal with.

  40. Jen says:

    I’ve got news for those crying “Always refuse the chemical testing!” – you can still get charged with a DUI. You failed field sobriety tests and refused to take chemical tests – gee, wonder why you’d do that? How about not driving under the influence in the first place? You made a mistake, a mighty big one at that, grab your balls and reap what you sowed.

  41. An interesting discussion is definitely worth comment.
    I think that you need to publish more on this topic, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people don’t discuss such issues.
    To the next! Cheers!!
