Dude's not having it. According to reports, Lamar Odom's family staged an intervention for him in New York City on Friday, but unfortunately, the former NBA player wasn't very responsive. Sources told Extra that Lamar was "extremely surprised" by his family's actions and left the premises shortly after he got there. 


Evidently, the intervention was staged by Lamar's ex-wife Liza Morales, aunt JaNean Mercer, his kids, as well as several of his cousins. After realizing what was happening, Lamar immediately "left the location."

Lamar has been hanging out in his native NYC recently after a bad run in Los Angeles. According to reports, Lamar's ex Khloe Kardashian found a crack pipe in the home of hers where he was staying, and he was also kicked off a Delta flight after drunkenly vomiting on the plane. His family -- as well as everyone who knows him -- has been concerned about his safety and health, but it's obvious that Lamar isn't ready to get help. Sadly, from the looks of things, it doesn't look like he's ever going to be ready to get help. 

If Khloe and the Kardashian family, as well as his own family, can't push Lamar into rehab -- not to mention a near-death experience -- the future looks pretty grim for Lamar. He doesn't seem to have a happy ending in front of him. It's heartbreaking, because so many people love him and are trying to get him to do the right thing to no avail. 

Here's to hoping Lamar will have a change of heart and heed his family's advice to go to rehab. Nobody seems to be holding their breath, though.
