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."

Hell hath no fury when a woman's scorn... I believe KJ leaked LO drug problem to the press bc he got cheating... What better way to change to the headlines... What he did was f'd up but they are out to destroy him... SMDH maybe next time he'll think twice abt marrying into an attention seeking sloring family... I guess karma has no expiration... KJ sittn back rubbn her hands like Birdman...

Yes. Khloe is in complete denial. With or without drugs, a man knows where he's sticking his junk.

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.

Lamar Odom story is (I'm yawning incessantly) sooo soooo SOOOOO boring. Plus, most people would use drugs/alcohol to numb ourselves too if we had to deal with his in-laws so continuing to report re status of Odom, sightings, posting photos etc. just makes TMZ seem like desperate celebrity journalists

The truth. Kloe hit him on the crack pipe. She was hitting to drop weight. So sad that TMZ has chosen not to tell the whole story.
