Is Lamar Odom In Rehab or Not?

The sad, downward spiraling story of Lamar Odom has taken a confusing turn as of Thursday. Sources close to the troubled pro baller told TMZ say contrary to previous reports, Odom has not checked himself into rehab.

This conflicts with earlier accounts reported on Sports Illustrated.com that said Lamar had started treatment for drug addiction at a rehab facility. The report did not specify when or where the 32-year old had allegedly started the program, even though Odom was seen out and about in public last weekend.

For those who may have been living under rock and have missed the news, it’s been widely reported that Odom has been struggling with drug addiction for the past several years. The husband of Khloe Kardashian recently developed a crack addiction and he was arrested last Friday with a DUI charge.

The Kardashian family is very concerned because Lamar has been incommunicado with the clan and Khloe. Kim K’s sister has made it clear that if Odom doesn’t clean up their marriage is over.

Here’s hoping Lamar can get help, clean up and get healthy…soon.

Fight Started Over Text Message?

All types of rumors are circulating on the web about what exactly started the fight between the two young singers, Rihanna and Chris Brown. The latest suggests that it stemmed from a text message from Brown’s ex-girlfriend.

A source says that Rihanna flipped when she found the message, and the NY Daily News cites a music industry source, reporting that the 20-year-old songstress and Brown were fighting over the text message while the couple were driving nearby her Hollywood Hills home. Rihanna attempted to get out of the car when the fight escalated.

“He got a booty call. He got a text. Rihanna saw it and she got upset. They started to argue. She got out of the car. He wanted her to get back in, so he grabbed her,” the industry source tells the newspaper. “She pulled away. That’s when she’s told people he hit her.”

According to an E! Online report, the “Umbrella” singer grabbed the keys from the ignition and threw them out onto the street, sending Brown into a rage.

After failing to find the keys, Brown came back to the car, put his hands around Rihanna’s neck and, according to the E! report, said, “I’m going to kill you!”

The NY Daily News source scoffed at reports that the fight erupted after a jealous Brown scolded Rihanna for spending time with producer Timbaland at a pre-Grammy party.

The inside source says, “Chris has been trying to contact her. So far she hasn’t taken his call. Her family is on their way to be with her. She has some close girlfriend looking after her.”

OK! magazine is suggesting that the feud started on Feb. 5th when heiress Paris Hilton and Brown were being flirty at the Verizon & BlackBerry Storm Grammy party at Boulevard 3, while Rihanna performed.

“He and Paris went outside together,” a witness tells OK!. Back inside, they got closer. “Paris was all over him,” the partygoer says. “Rihanna caught wind of it and spent the rest of the night glued to him.”

Brown has been charged with one count of making felony criminal threats. The singer posted a $50,000 bond and was released by police Sunday night. A March 5 court date has been set.

T- Boz chatted with ESSENCE.com recently and among other things, chatted up last week’s rumors about her losing her home, here’s some of what she said:

“… No, I’m not homeless. During my last marriage [to Mack 10], I had a bunch of things that were put in my name. If one of those properties is going into foreclosure then I don’t know. Although I’ve been divorced for five years, there are still a lot of things I’m dealing with on getting straight in that regard. All I know is that the house I live in with my daughter is not. When you pull up my name, my real house doesn’t show up because it’s not in my real name, because I enjoy my privacy and I’m not trying to have people be able to find me that easily …”
