Lamar Odom

$800 Per Day Summer Drug Habit

9/6/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0904-lamar-odom-tmzLamar Odom fell deep into the world of hardcore drugs during a wild summer in Hollywood ... where he spent as much as $1,000 in a single day to fuel his growing addiction to crack -- according to sources familiar with the situation.

TMZ broke the story Lamar was hooked on crack -- but now we've learned just how bad it got in the last few months.

We're told Lamar's habit picked up speed when he moved out of his home with Khloe Kardashian, and into Hollywood's Roosevelt Hotel with a friend in late May ... after the NBA season ended.

We're told the hotel room was used like a flop house ... where Lamar was surrounded by his pal and 7 or 8 other drug abusers -- strangers -- who came in and out of the room throughout the day and night ... for several months straight.

According to sources, Odom was dropping -- on average -- $800 per day, but sometimes more, for multiple drugs, including crack.

By the way, if $800 worth of crack sounds like a huge amount of drugs for one person ... it is. But we're told Lamar sometimes shared his huge score. Plus, drug dealers often charge rich customers premium prices.

As we first told you, Khloe kept Lamar's drug addiction secret for at least 2 years -- but after this summer she decided enough was enough ... telling him if he didn't get treatment, she would pull the plug on their marriage.

Your making this up as you go along. You think you can say anything and we will believe it. Your credibility is shot on this one. I wont believe a thing you say about LO unless its a coroners report.

"(sources familiar with the situation)"....The only people who would know exactly how much he was spending on drugs is him and the people doing the drugs with him..and we all know how reliable a crackhead is....so long story short, this story sucks

You are asking me to believe a Kardashian kept a secret for two years? Unbelievable. That family hasn't kept a secret or shown a sense of shame since Kim's sex tape made her $5 million.

I'm not buying any of this crap. This is all designed to promote that terrible TV show.

At this point in the timeline ... even if Odom were to finally go to a legitimate rehab and pretend to get sober only because he is forced to ... once he gets out, he will be like a ticking time bomb just waiting to go off. Sooner or later, he will be doing drugs again - and all the same old turmoil and chaos will return to Lamar and Khloe's relationship.
Too much damage has been done, too much trust has been lost.
The best thing for the both of them .. is to move on and just get a divorce. Their relationship is too fractured to ever become anything but toxic.

You make him sound like a strung out hard core dying addict. But I see healthy good looking pictures.
Maybe hes a drug user when he feels like. maybe hes going through a hard time trying to get the wookie out his house and needs a break. give the man a break and get off his back for while. He's a grown man.

Sources close to Lamar claim that he knows these TMZ drug posts are being fed to TMZ by Momager Kris Jenner's staff. Kris Jenner should be very concerned about Lamar turning the tables on her and revealing all about the Kardashian family right down to who Khloe's real father is!

Lamar needs to distance himself from all the Kardashians.

His fat Sasquatch wife Kloey is known to hoover up a large amount of coke, so I wonder how much extra cash and blow he had to get just to give to her? Hey isn't this the guy who's been screwing prostitutes even though he's married?

"Khloe kept Lamar's drug addiction secret for at least 2 years -- but after this summer she decided enough was enough ... telling him if he didn't get treatment, she would pull the plug on their marriage"

She decided to expose his recreational activities because he wouldn't do what she wanted him to. Control freak.

Wow ...yet another subversive conspiracy by the K family. Not only is Kris and the Kardashians controlling all press releases on Odom, they are controlling the WHOLE PLANET. All of them are actually evil aliens sent to control all life forms on earth from an alien outpost hidden on the dark side of the moon - or maybe in Kris' garage behind Bruce's toy airplanes. Not sure yet.
The truth is, Kris and Dr. Evil are BFF's and have been planning this attack on Lamar for decades - even traveling back in time to make his dad a drug addict just to strengthen their smear campaign against Odom.... and they are well on their way to turning us all into robotic sheeple who will believe anything they are told - even from crazies posting comments. .
Thank Gawd the truth has been told ... or else everyone might be tricked into believing Lamar is just another self destructive drug addict ... rather than a pawn in a plan for the Kardashians to control Planet Earth.
