Lamar Odom has been a hot topic over the past few weeks due to his rocky marriage with Khloe Kardashian and rumors about his substance abuse. Recently though another issue has been added to this list of controversies: his DUI arrest.
According to E! News
, the 33-year-old basketball player, who was driving 50 mph in his white Mercedes SUV on Friday morning, was busted in Los Angeles and was then taken into custody on $15,000 bail after failing to complete his field sobriety test.
Public Information Officer Leland Tang said
that Odom did "the worst thing you could possibly do" when it comes to being pulled over for suspicion of driving under the influence: "he said no when the officer asked him to do a chemical test." This means there's a possibility that Odom's license could be suspended for a year even if he is found not guilty of getting a DUI.
Odom was spotted arriving in a cab at his Calabasas home on Saturday. A source reveals to E! News
"Lamar arrived first in a taxi and then Khloe arrived an hour later. She was driving herself, alone in the car. They both wore matching oversized black hoodies. Lamar was lying down flat in the back of the taxi to avoid photographers. He looked tired and had red eyes."
"Khloe has been trying so, so hard to keep him from hitting a bottom like this," another source told E! News. "But if this is what needed to happen, then this is what needed to happen." The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is reportedly hoping that his DUI arrest "will be his wake-up call."
Despite the many challenges she's facing right now, Khloe appears to be positive and supportive of her husband, based on her tweets. "Smile and no one will notice," she tweeted just hours after her husband's arrest. Later, she tweeted, "As much as I wish I were made of steel... I'm not. I'm pretty damn close to it though."
Meanwhile, it has been rumored that Kris Jenner's talk show has been canceled but Us Weekly
is reporting that's not the case.
"It's way too early for that decision to have been made," a source close to Jenner reveals to Us. "And on top of that, FOX likes the show."
"Rumors flying are false but glad everyone is still buzzing about our 6 week summer run!!!!"the Kris Jenner Show account posted.
