Exclusive: Terry Crews Reacts To Lamar Odom’s Struggles + Odom Checks Into Rehab



Is Lamar Odom finally getting the help he needs?

According to, the NBA veteran has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. A source told the publication that the reality star realized “he needed to get help.”

Over the past few months, Odom’s life appears to have traveled in a downward spiral. The player was arrested last week for DUI amid rumors of cheating and drug abuse. Odom’s problems have reportedly caused hardships in his marriage with, Khloe Kardashian. But according to multiple reports, Khloe has been working tirelessly to get her husband help.

During Robi Reed’s “Sunshine Beyond Summer” party during Labor Day weekend, HipHollywood caught up with former athlete and actor, Terry Crews, to get his reaction on Lamar’s recent troubles.

“All of us have family members who are on drugs, or have any kind of issues. You have to love them. You have to be concerned,” Crews explained.

“Everybody has an addiction. Everybody has one thing they have to get over. And if anybody looks at him like ‘oh, whatever,’ you got a problem, you’re not looking at yourself,” the Brooklyn Nine-Nine star shared.

“He’s got to get the help that he needs, and hopefully this a wake up call that could change everything for him … He could come back better, and actually have more than he had before. I love that kind of potential,” he said.


Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
