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."

Lamar should find himself a normal woman from a normal family. I think that's a good place to start.

He's wrong on all 3 counts?? How the hell do you know, TMZ? Because the stupid Kardashians are feeding you these B.S. stories left and right and you found some skanky looking, attention seeking "lawyer" to spread even more lies? PLEASE. I believe Lamar. He isn't the one with the problem. How a person who claims to love another could purposely try to ruin them is disgusting.

I don't believe a WORD of this whole storyline. If he was really arrested for a DUI, where's his mugshot? Not release? It's public record! Every bit of this crack/cheating story is BS and Lamar is in on it, as are all his teammates and obvs the Kardashian klan. Don't believe me? Just watch. This story will fade into oblivion like it never happened after their tv show starts, just like a million other planted stories have disappeared into thin air. These people willingly ruin their own reputations just to stay famous. And all the sheeple follow their fake lives and keep them rolling in the dough. What a world.

"Destroys Ray J" LMFAO hardly KMZ. It took him months to come up with a lame change of lyrics to his craptastic song. EPIC FAIL . . Now how about you address the real issue of Kanye's cross dressing! WTF is he wearing?

He seems like such a nice guy. I pray for his health and stable mind. Please Lamar leave the K family behind. And you'll be just fine. Love From the Chi

People who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones. Busted for DUI. NOT FOR WEAVING IN AND OUT OF TRAFFIC OR SPEEDING but for DRIVING UNDER THE SPEED LIMIT. Next, lets not forget to mention that he successfully managed to end the basketball season on a positive note. Perhaps he did not complete rehab but he did go so he's not in complete denial. (Has Dr Drew reached out to him yet?). He hasn't been arrested and his house is not in foreclosure. He's not hiding from the public and although his life isn't perfect he continues to put one foot in front of the other. The way I see it, he has it more together than some of the snotty nose celebrity brats that seriously do have a problem and are putting the lives of OTHER people in danger. The End.
