Lamar Odom

So Bad ... Crack Dealer Cut Him Off

9/7/2013 3:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0904-tmz-lamar-odom
Lamar Odom
's crack cocaine addiction had reached such dangerous levels ... even his dealer thought the NBA star had gone over the edge, and cut off his supply last week, TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the dealer tell us, the crack slinger had delivered the drug to Lamar all summer, but last week, Lamar was insatiable ... calling incessantly and demanding more and more crack.   His go-to dealer apparently got scared enough to cut Lamar off.

No surprise ... the dealer wasn't really concerned about Lamar's welfare.  He was worried about his own ass -- scared Lamar could die and authorities would come down on him.

Obviously, this doesn't mean Lamar stopped using crack ... we're told he hasn't.  It just means he went on the hunt for a new supplier.

Luckily I never moved onto any thing harder than alcohol and weed [and i'm talking cheap weed] and i've never known a crack head ---- i was just wondering, when someone like Lamar is so hooked to that stuff, what are the odds of him giving it up for good ? Even though you get high on that stuff, I wonder if you almost feel trapped at the same time since you're so hooked. Hope Lamar can kick that stuff out of his life, sounds like nasty business.

This is completely full of ****.. sorry if you were using crack that long it would show the effects in his physical appearance. Let's be serious could you even attempt to finish a regular game of basketball and keep concentration at the local basketball court near your home let alone in the NBA while using this type of drug ? TMZ get your **** straight and stop trying to ruin people's life and find a good way to make your money! If you're that bored get off your ass and get an actual real job!

A source claims that KIM refuses to be photographed with the baby, because it might tarnish her sex symbol image.Also, she doesn't want the baby to take the attention away from her .Sounds plausible!.

Seriously, do we need a twice daily update on the breakdown of another person's life? It's getting to the point where TMZ seems to be deriving pleasure over the alleged downfall of another human being. Everyone has their own demons to battle and a surprising amount of Americans are so closely entwined with the disease of addiction, that this topic/story is not even newsworthy material and it's cruel at best and it certainly is not "entertainment news", as there is nothing entertaining about the disease of addiction. If you want to "break the story" and do something totally original, show some compassion for another human being who is struggling and shut the f*ck up.

Ok, lots of people on here are talking about how they can't believe that Lamar was functioning as well as he has been if he was really addicted to crack/cocaine. That's bull****. There's tons of functioning athletes, stars, coworkers, family members, neighbors, etc. a lot of people start off with doing it only on the holidays, once a month, only on the weekends, and so on. His drug use (alleged) was probbaly just a social sort of thing, and it quickly became out of hand. Tons of people can keep addictions under control, and keep rules for their addiction, and many become teetering on a slippery slope and go down hill fast. IF the rumors are true, this is what I think happened. I think it was a "once in awhile", feel-good sort of thing. Probably an answer Khloe felt ok enough about. (Assuming she doesn't use on occasion too). And then it became so out of control, she couldn't put the breaks on fast enough. We do know Lamar's father is a drug addict, for many many years, and has put a serious strain on he and his families relationships. So, do I think there's a good chance that Lamar was/is into harder drugs, yes. Do I think Lamar could have kept his addiction under wraps, and continue to play b-ball, and function in normal, every day life, yes. I had a very close family member who had everyone fooled for years. Until having occasional fun turned into "needing" to have the fun... ie: cocaine then heroine. I think a lot of people who are judging the harshest have the least amount of knowledge with addiction and drugs. It's not hard to grasp. Look at basic denial, and there you go. And seriously, though... TMZ. Please, stop telling us every f'n second you see Lamar. "Breaking news: Despite alleged drug use to Blow. Lamar was seen earlier today with a clean tissue, no traces of blood". Or whatever the hell snazzy jab you guys would conjur up. It's getting old. Both the every 5 minute update and the below the belt references.
