According to People reports, Lamar is filming a show that will air in 2017.
“The show will be about his life, recovery — all about him,” the source says about the new series.
“Lamar checked into rehab a week ago. He plans to stay for 30 days. It’s a substance abuse program, but he was not abusing drugs when he went in. He is clean. This is a precautionary measure,” according to an insider.
“He wants to stay clear and focused. With the divorce from Khloé being finalized and the holidays coming up, he doesn’t want to slip up. He’s trying to take care of himself. He really wants to be better,” the insider added. “His friends and family encouraged him to go in and he agreed and made the decision.”
Looking to the year ahead, a source told PEOPLE that the athlete is “being very adult and mature and just wants to be a great father and brother, sister, a better friend,” and added, “He needs to be in good shape physically and mentally.”
“He’s actually writing while he’s away, he’s doing a lot of writing in there. There’s a book offer on the table,” another insider told PEOPLE. “But part of the deal was that he’s going to get in good shape. Everyone’s been so supportive.”
