Lamar Odom Road To Fame
Lamar Odom net worth is primarily acquired through his successful basketball play in the most popular basketball league, NBA. He was first drafted in 1999 by LA Clippers, and has since played also in Miami Heat and LA Lakers, as well as for the national team, with which he wan bronze medal on Olympic Games in Athens in 2004. He is evidently a great player, talented to play on various positions successfully, however his playing career was often affected by either his injuries or by his tendency to use some recreational drugs. If you wonder how much is Lamar Odom worth, it is evident that his 4-year contract with LA Lakers in 2009 increased his fortune for $34 million, but he is also known to increase his income thanks to his role in reality television due to his relationship with Khloe Kardashian.
Lamar Odom Private Life And Family Tragedy
Lamar Odom was born and raised in Queens, from drug-adict father and mother who died when he was just 12 years old. His early childhood was really troubled, but after his death Lamar was raised by his grandmother. Lamar Odom girlfriend of many years, Lisa Morales and Lamar have two children, 10-year old girl Destiny and son Lamar Jr. In 2006, their third child, 6-months old son Jayden died of SIDS, tragedy that crushed their family, and got him to move onto other relationships, finally hooking up with Khloe Kardashian, one of controversial Kardashian sisters. They have been together for several years, and after a tumultuous period in a relationship in 2013, after a period of marriage counseling, they have finally and definitelly separated in 2014. Since that period, Khloe has moved on and started dating French Montana, but it seems that her love for Lamar Odom hasn’t died completely, as they are still in contact and although divorce has been finalized they call each other and text often. Does this mean that they might rekindle their love? What do you think?
Meanwhile, Lamar is still living good life thanks to his successful and wealthy professional career and success in reality tv as well. He driveds luxury Rolls Royce, a gift from his ex-wife which cost reported $400.000. He and Khloe used to live in luxury home in Tarzana, Los Angeles California, which has since been listed as a property for sale, but Lamar still lives there, until the sale is finalized. Beautiful home has 7 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms, with a nice piece of land around it.
However, his latest behavior as well as his divorce from Khloe seems to have triggered his problematic behavior. It seems that he again has problems with marijuana and similar drugs, in fact it seems that drug addiction is primary reason why Khloe has decided to give up on their relationship after all and filed for a divorce back in 2013.
This drug problems for otherwise successful man remind us of similar celebrities, such as Heath Ledger (who in the end died of drug overdose) and Michael Douglas, who had all sorts of addictions and went into a rehab few times to sort out his life. Michael Douglas managed to get back together, but it remains to be seen how will Lamar Odom get back his life together.
What do you think of his future, will he manage to get clean again?
