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."

TMZ, how the hell do you know he's wrong on all three counts? has anyone there actually saw him doing drugs or do you just go by your "sources" and script writers for the "reality" shows?

I'm still waiting for real evidence because I don't believe a word any Kardashian has to say.

I'm totally on Lamar's side, even if he uses drugs, it's no ones business but his own. If every person who had ever done drugs was hounded like this, we would all be on tmz

I believe Lamar, and call BULL on TMZ. When I read it in the New York or LA Times as a credible news item, then I will believe it. TMZ is proving to be as big a Kardashian whore, well the site should be changed to KKKMZ.

His quote was taken completely out of context. What he said was "I don't have a crack problem; I have all the crack I need."

Not one solid piece of evidence that he has a drug problem other than the Kraptrashian supplying you with stories. which all seem to spin them in a positive light and throw him under the bus. How about you leave him alone until you can actually prove this story to be true?

So far Harvey your weak evidence of alleged Crack Cocaine use by Lamar would not make it to a grand Jury. You Provided No Evidence.
