Lamar Odom

I Don't Have a Crack Problem

9/10/2013 9:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE



Lamar Odom says he's absolutely NOT a drug addict ... doesn't need professional help ... and is confident he'll play in the NBA next season.

He's wrong on all 3 counts.

33-year-old Odom went to Teru Sushi in Studio City last night ... and after taking some photos with fans, he finally addressed the media about drug issues in his life ... claiming everything is hunky-dory.

Problem is ... Odom is clearly in denial. As we've previously reported, just about everyone in his life -- personally and professionally -- knows about his battle with substance abuse, including his wife Khloe Kardashian.

In the last year alone, Lamar's been thrown out of hotels ... busted for DUI ... spent time in rehab ... and dropped from multiple NBA teams.

Still, Lamar insists ... "Life is good."

So, so tired of the crap. Harvey needs to detach himself from momager's ass and leave Lamar alone. Aren't your lips getting tired, Harvey? Chris won't be happy until Lamar is dead. How dare he rebel against her constant manipulation.

I'm waiting to hear it from the LA Times and not from Kris Jenner.

"He's clearly in denial"?

Or maybe he just doesn't feel like opening up his soul & sharing all the painful details of his personal life with some nitwit TMZ reporter. He's an Odom not a Kardashian.

Don't let pimp momager Kris Jenner make you believe you're worth nothing. Admit that you have a problem then take the necessary steps to ensure you get the right help. You're not a bad person you just

That's all well and good except the Kardashian's are known for not having a grip on reality and staging.
