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."

As much as I enjoy TMZ, they can overly exaggerate at times. "In the pas year Lamar...." Well, the DUI was in the last year since it was last week and that was the only one; the rehab was 2 days after the DUI for 1 day to pre-exempt the Judge on the court date; and the dropped by multiple teams is simply a lie. He was let go months ago by the LA Clippers (Yes Daren that's a real team). In other words, TMZ is getting closer to lying rather than just exaggerating.

An article in the International Business Times explains why PMK with help from TMZ have gone to the extreme to paint Lamar as a crack head. It won't work but Lamar you need to an entertainment/contract attorney that specializes in divorce and end this madness.

Sure, Lamar, life is "good"....while the money's still available, that is. When it stops, no one will know you.

Of course Lamar can still afford a divorce lawyer, but smart move if he's holding out for THEM to make the 1st offer!

Why would anyone want to marry this guy anyway? He looks like a failed boxer that got his faced punched in 10 too many times.

He's smoking rock to try to cope with the fact he's with some roller derby looking girl when he could have something tight. Dude will probably end up DOA.

Khloe has a right to be happy, but she didn't need to ruin the man's career, I think that went too far.
