Troubled NBA player will be repped by O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Shapiro.
Lamar Odom's real-life drama continues. The NBA player and reality star, who was arrested for DUI on Friday after appearing "intoxicated" to Los Angeles police, had his driver's license revoked for one year after refusing to take a chemical test. Odom's alleged drug addiction has come to light in recent weeks and has put both his marriage and his basketball career in jeopardy.
Odom recently hired infamous O.J. Simpson attorney Robert Shapiro to represent him in the DUI case. The irony is sharp because Odom's wife Khloe Kardashian's late father Robert Kardashian was also part of Simpson's defense team.
Speaking of Kardashian, the reality star has given her husband an ultimatum, TMZ reports: go to rehab or leave home. The youngest Kardashian sister has been making every effort to stand by her man despite rumors of infidelity and Odom's refusal to enter rehab. But Kardashian seems to have hit her limit. "I'm not made of steel," she tweeted after Odom's arrest.
It seems that Odom hasn't given up on his marriage. Though it appears he is not sharing a home with his wife, he was spotted wearing his wedding ring during a run to Blockbuster days after his arrest.
