Lamar Odom

CRACK COCAINE

Drug of Choice

EXCLUSIVE

0403_lamar_odom_tmz_article2
Lamar Odom has been deep into crack cocaine for at least 2 years ... TMZ has learned. 

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar has gone off the rails with drug use ... which is the principal cause of the crisis in his marriage to Khloe Kardashian.  As we reported Lamar went to a rehab facility a year ago this month and stayed for 3 weeks before bailing -- and we're told the problem was crack.

Sources say Lamar's crack use was extreme before he went to rehab, but he cleaned up his act during the basketball season that just ended.  Sources say shortly after he hung up his jersey, he started again with a bang.

As we reported ... Khloe threw Lamar out of the house a few days ago after he rejected an attempt at an intervention.

It's unclear how Lamar's problem will affect his basketball career.

We made calls to Lamar's reps.  So far, no comment.

Kris Jenner and Kim K = money hungry plastic sellouts.    

ROL says his drug of choice was OxyContin and I don't know what else but cocaine was not mentioned. I have a feeling this is all bull****. But if it's not, that's not the main reason why he got kicked out. Lhow supposedly hired a PI to see if he was going to rehab but remember the affair with the lawyer? The woman said Khloe showed up at her house with Kris and found Lamar. How would Khloe know where this chick lives? Bc she hired a PI to see if he was cheating, not to see if he was going to rehab. Khloe just let it go already. Admit you made a mistake after getting engaged 9 days later. Your own fault

Could this be the reason the Lakers got rid of him? Guess Clippers will have another position to fill. Khloe get rid of the arse & find someone else. (PS I'm not a fan of the Kardashians. But I'm changing my mind only as to Khloe. I find her the least offensive.

Khloe spent far too much time minding Kims business so she could stay in the limelight, it was so painful to watch!! We all know those Kardashian men get kicked in the crotch everyday to keep them I line!!

When he was with the mother of his children still cheating but loving them and living with his kids and lady who loved him those decades plus he was doing great in basketball and life ... he should go back to her if Lisa will have him and dump the Kardashians ... they are trash and s*** and this is his life and his children's he is ruining. Khloe is just a skank and when she got him it was not he who she wanted but the 'World Peace' who didn't give her a look. Lamar went for the buzz and the TV .. Klohe deserves nothing better. Karma will follow her negatively after all the lies and bad things she said about Kris Humphries who was the best guy of all. Pay back's a bitch Khloe and you earned and deserve it .. you fat ass liar

If you try to dump a Kardashian they will make up all sorts of krap about you. But the story is BS. The only Krack Lamar is trying to avoid is Khloe's -- which is as wide as the Grand Canyon. Lamar was a great basketball player but the Kardashian kurse has destroyed him.

Calling BS, TMZ - you're on momma Kris's payroll to spew forth whatever she wants you to - to paint Khloe as a martyr instead of the real story - it's all about ratings - just like Kim's 'marriage'. Kris pays you to continue to keep the Kartrashians in the media and painting the best picture of them. C'mon, man... you're part of the Kartrashian problem... can we all just forget about this family and move on to actual celebrities who have real talent and a true means to their fame????
