Throughout 2016, headlines about Lamar Odom have either been about his divorce from his second ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, or his on-going battle with drug and alcohol abuse. For most fans, the idea of Odom becoming sober just seemed like a hopeful dream in a reality that seemed far too grim for too long for the former NBA star. But earlier this week the troubled athlete took a surprising step towards sobriety when he made the decision to check himself into a rehab facility. Since then, fans have been opening up about Odom’s decision and now his first wife has decided to share her thoughts on his latest rehab stint, as well.

As previously reported, Odom announced his decision to check himself into a San Diego drug rehab facility, as well as announced that he’s appearing on “The Doctors” to discuss his famous drug overdose in 2015 that left him in a days-long coma

“Lamar Odom has checked into rehab,” his rep told Us Weekly in a statement. “After consulting with his family and friends, and meeting with Dr. Travis Stork of ‘The Doctors,’ he has decided it is best he take time to focus on himself. He is dedicated to leading a healthy lifestyle and being the best father he can be to his children. Lamar asks that the public please respect his privacy at this time and truly appreciates the love and support of his family, friends and fans. He will talk about his journey in January on ‘The Doctors.’”

Not surprisingly, fans and the media alike have been digging for more details about Odom’s rehab stint and that means his family and friends have been getting badgered to give out the intimate details of his sobriety. Well, his first wife, Liza Morales, decided to deal with all of the invasive questions in one fell swoop by posting a heartfelt message about Odom on her instagram page:
