While most of Khloe Kardashian's family is just learning the news of Lamar Odom's history of drug use, it seems as though her brother was in on the secret for quite some time.
Rob Kardashian and the troubled basketballer have formed a tight bond over the last few years, and they even lived under the same roof together. Sources close to the family are now saying that he knew about Lamar's addiction for over year, revealing:
"[Rob has] known about Lamar’s drug addiction for over a year. How could he not as he has lived under the same roof with Lamar and Khloe? Rob even spent a significant amount of time with Khloe and Lamar when he was traded to the Dallas Mavericks."
Earlier this week, we found out that Lamar had been abusing drugs since his days with the Los Angeles Lakers, and while he and Rob remained close, it eventually began to create a rift in their friendship.
The source goes on to say:
"Rob isn’t a party animal like Lamar, and drugs just aren’t his scene. The two used to be very close, but have drifted apart because Lamar has been abusing Oxy and cheating on Khloe. Rob has continued to live at the Tarzana mansion to support Khloe, he really has her back."
Things have gone from bad to worse for Lamar, as just this morning he was pulled over and arrested for a DUI, although no drugs were found in his car.
He has apparently been working really hard to get back in the good graces of the Kardashian family, but sources say Rob remains skeptical since he won't go to rehab.
It's very saddening to see just how bad things have gotten for Lamar, and we really hope he gets the help he needs before they get any worse.
