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.

Crack cocaine?!?! Seriously Harvey?!?! The NBA drug testing may be soft, but you would like the public to believe that for the last TWO YEARS Lamar has been abusing CRACK and playing pro ball? What in the hell could Kris Jenner have promised you that you would run a bull$hit story like this? We aren't stupid TMZ. We know a planted story when we see one.

More money, more problems. I guess we now know why Khloe isn't pregnant yet. It's not her fault!

TMZ is on Kardashian payroll so will find every possible way to defame Lamar....that trash family is poison so don't blame him for taking drugs..if he wants to help himself, he needs to get out of the relationship ASAP

Being connected to the Kartrashian's, crack cocaine is the adequate choice for your daily drugs

If Lamar wasn't in the NBA Khloe wouldn't have given him a second glance. They didn't have any chemistry together. Their show was painful to watch because he's so one dimensional with zero personality and always seemed agitated and uncomfortable in front of the cameras. They had to conjure up drama like injecting his dad into the picture even though they had little prior contact.
Now that they've got some real drama in their lives, I wonder if it the intervention that took place will be on the show. If so, it will probably be like the show 'Intervention' where the addict doesn't know the intervention is coming or will be filmed. Did Lamar run out of the room with Mama K chasing him down the street begging him to come back? Was his Popz waiting outside in his '82 Cutlass Supreme ready to score more crack for the both of them? That I would find mildly entertaining.

Another waste of talent and money. Crack is hard drug to kick but it can be kicked for good. Samuel Jackson was a crackhead and look at him now. Sober and successful.

I don't think it's nice to make fun of the situation. Khloe is actually the realist out of the kardashin klan. No one deserves a husband or wife who has an addiction. It's not easy dealing with an addict.

Such a bull**** story!! He is a professional athlete and as such he is subject to year round random drug testing. You have those rat Kardashian feed you a story and you throw it out there without caring that you're messing with someone's career.
