Lamar Odom

CRACK COCAINE

Drug of Choice

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.

Wonder if this is really true or thhe Kardashians way to spin the real reasons he was having affairs!! These Kartrashiaans just can't accept that some men want to be the man in the relationship and when they don't folllow what the pimpager says they badmouth the man!!!

This is a hard drug to kick. I have a brother who got hooked on it and he gave up his kids, his job, his whole life. Stole from everybody he knew. And he was never that kind of person before he tried it. I know..he never should have tried it in the first place so it is his fault he has ended up where he is. I am just saying that it happens to people from all races, all financial status, and all ages and it isn't really something to make jokes about. He really could die from this and I highly doubt that it will be because this is the life he wanted over his wife and friends. Maybe if crack addicts had just a tiny bit of support from their community instead of being instantly labeled as trash.....they might be more willing to admit their failings and seek help. Not saying people have to overlook what they have done and how they got themselves into the mess they are in....but being a drug addict does not make you a bad person. It just makes you do bad things.

I'm thinking if I were Lamar... I'd be contacting my lawyer pronto and exposing EVERYTHING that went on with that family EVER... (and certainly not the 'lawyer' that Harvey is... ) This reeks of slander spewed forth by Kris Jenner. Lamar hasn't been living with Khloe for months but Kris wasn't ready to have that in the press yet... Lamar is regularly tested as part of the NBA... Let's take a look at the previous Mr. Kartrashian and see what Kimmy's ex has to add to the truth about the family. Wouldn't that be nice. Their 15 minutes expired a LONG time ago, you, Harvey continue to keep them in the media by regurgitating any and everything Kris tells you - along with the generous PR money she pays TMZ...

Doesn't the NBA have drug testing or is it optional if a player says they are 'out of town' or he decides not to show up. How is he getting around drug tests?

This is so sad... Being married to a Krapdashian is no wonder he does it. I hope he gets help and recovers!!!

Getting sober is so hard; staying ****ed up in your life is harder. Dude lost his mom, his dad's a mess, he lives life as a baller, and he went looking for a family among a very shady crowd. All of this explains it. But I hope he can put it behind him and find the peace he's obviously seeking.
