UPDATE: Family sources tell "Extra" that last night's attempt at an intervention for Lamar Odom was unsuccessful, they are committed to getting him help.

Sources close to the family of Lamar Odom tell “Extra” they are staging an intervention in New York at this hour for the estranged husband of Khloé Kardashian.

"Extra" is told several family members are on hand, including his aunt, JaNean Mercer; his kids; and his ex-wife Liza Morales.

Sources say Lamar’s cousin Alvina Alston reached out to Darryl Strawberry to have Lamar get on a plane to start his rehab at the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center in St. Cloud, Florida. Ron Dock, who has counseled Darryl and is responsible for his recovery, is at the intervention, with Darryl himself reportedly joining via Skype.

If all goes well, Lamar's family hopes he will get on a plane sometime tonight or tomorrow morning.

News of the intervention comes after Lamar was reportedly drunk and vomiting and had to be removed from a Delta Air Lines flight on July 11. In October 2015, he survived a near-fatal overdose at a Nevada legal brothel.
