(Newser) – Yesterday we wrote that Lamar Odom had checked into rehab, per sources who talked to People, Us, and E!. "He realized he needs help," said one at the time. But today, E! reports Odom has already left, "barely a day" after arriving for treatment; People has a similar report, adding that he checked in Wednesday and out yesterday. As for TMZ, it features the couldn't-be-any-clearer headline "Lamar Odom NOT IN REHAB"—but that site claims he never checked in in the first place, and says wife Khloe Kardashian hasn't heard from him.

Odom's drug problems have been causing marital strife with Kardashian, and he was arrested on DUI charges last Friday. "The addiction had taken over their marriage," says another source."The problem is cocaine. He would be high for three or four days at a time." Two of Khloe's latest tweets: "As much as I wish I were made of steel... I'm not." And "I'm pretty damn close to it though hehe." (More unhappy news for Khloe: Eminem dissed her in a new song.)
