TMZ reports that the reason Kris Jenner got Robert Shapiro involved in Lamar Odom's DUI case to represent him because Shapiro has his own experience with drug addiction.
Shapiro's 24-year-old son Brent died of an overdose in 2005 and Shapiro has been involved with drug addiction foundations and charities since then. Jenner wants Shapiro to represent Odom and also try to convince him to seek help for his drug issues. The DUI case will most likely end with a probation sentence and license suspension.
The Kardashian family, including Odom's wife Khloe, have not been able to convince him to go to rehab. While Shapiro has agreed to take the case, he told Jenner that he would not take it unless Odom is open to treatment.
