Lamar Odom’s marriage to estranged wife Khloe Kardashian might not be motivating him to stay sober, but there’s one thing that reportedly is driving the former NBA star to get clean: his basketball career.

Sources tell TMZ that the 6’10” athlete has been saying he’s been sober for five days now and that he can stay clean without going to rehab. Lamar reportedly tells friends that he believes in “self-healing” and that once he’s fully sober, he can rejoin a basketball team.

The site also reports that Lamar has been telling people he will get rid of certain “friends” so that he doesn’t relapse and that he has the willpower to kick his supposed addiction to crack cocaine on his own. 

But if Lamar plans to stay sober without the help of rehab, he might also need to count out help and support from his estranged wife, Khloe. After spending the couple’s four-year anniversary by herself, the reality star reportedly called her former love and told him she’s ready to call their relationship off.

“She called him on their anniversary and told him she’d be filing for divorce,” an insider told Us Weekly. “She wanted to give him fair warning. Khloe was very firm. She said she will be filing soon and she thinks it’s best they move on.”

While we would love to believe that Lamar can get clean on his own, the promises of drug addicts, especially those with waning support systems, are often cause for concern.

Do you think Lamar can get clean by himself? Let us know in the comments below.
