We just learnt that Lamar Odom’s family consisting of his 2 kids, his ex wife Liza Morales and his aunt JaNean Mercer, set up an intervention for him in New York, last week, to get him to clean himself up but it didn’t yield the desired result.
They invited the drug rehab professional, Ron Dock, who has counselled many through drug and alcohol recovery, via Skype, but his presence didn’t make any difference as Lamar stormed out of the intervention.
They say his family was trying to get him to get on a plane to start rehab at the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center.
However, we are also reminded of the death of Lamar’s best friend and close associate:
According to People Magazine:
Two of Odom’s good friends, Jamie Sangouthai and Bobby Heyward, died within less than a week of each other in June.
Jamie Sangouthai was Lamar’s best friend as they knew each other since they were kids and he was Lamar’s best man during his 2009 marriage to Khloe Kardashian. He death was caused by a flesh-eating disease from his intravenous drug use, Los Angeles Coroner’s office assistant chief Ed Winter said.
Six days after Jamie’s death, 30 year old Bobby Heyward, who was another good friend of Odom, died of a drug overdose. In fact, Bobby’s last Instagram post was a tribute to Jamie.
In light of all this, we pray that Lamar fixes up before oit is too late.
