Lamar Odom, who recently checked into a rehabilitation center following the finalization of his divorce from Khloe Kardashian, is reportedly going to star in a reality show after his recovery, People reported. The series, expected to air in 2017, “will be about his life, recovery — all about him,” a source said. In 2015, Odom was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel after a nearly fatal overdose, but a source told People that this recent move to rehab was not due to a relapse. Sources called it a “precautionary measure” and said Odom “wants to stay clear and focused.”
