In the 10 months since Lamar Odom made his first public appearance after recovering from a near-fatal overdose in 2015, there have been plenty of rumors suggesting that he may need more help. Fortunately, sources are telling E! that Odom has admitted himself into a rehabilitation center in San Diego, CA.
“It was his own decision. He wanted to work on his mental and physical health for the next chapter of his life. He has not fallen off the wagon, but he understands the importance of maintaining his sobriety.”
It’s unclear what Odom wants the “next chapter” of his life to include, but given his divorce is finally being finalized, it may see fewer Kardashians.
When Amber Heard and Johnny Depp worked out the details of their split, they reportedly agreed to a settlement that included “a confidentiality clause prohibiting [Heard] from talking about Johnny.” So, as TMZ writes today, Heard is finding ways around the clause when speaking out about domestic violence.
Take this open letter she wrote for Porter magazine this week. It’s addressed to her “silent sisters everywhere” and reads, in part (bold mine):
You are not alone. You may have suffered alone behind closed doors, but you are not alone. You need to know that. I want to remind you of your strength, a strength that’ll is multiplied by the number of women who stand silently behind you—a truth that allowed me to break down the doors I once found myself behind.
She later provides more details about her abuse, but again, never calls out Depp by name:
No matter how terrible or terrifying surviving trauma may be, unfortunately it can pale in comparison to what follows. It’s no wonder so many of us feel we have to keep quiet or risk our own safety to try to maintain our dignity by quietly enduring. The fear of being ostracized from society is just about the most terrifying prospect there is...I never felt anyone would or could rescue me, so naturally I resented the label of victim.
I wonder if Johnny’s lawyers are mad. Oh, that’s a dumb question. I’m sure Johnny’s lawyers are always mad.
