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."

Look at him. He looks nothing like he used to. He is looking more and more like his father who is/was a heroin addict? Don't believe me? Look up his father on the web and tell me I am wrong. I don't know what he is on. Crack,coke,pills or alcohol. He is definitely doing something and you all are idiots if you can't see it.

Man you said it... Get off Lamar's ballz.... All cir***stantial purely hearsay bs on Lamar... Sources.. What sources! This so called attorney that's admitted he was smoking crack in her hotel room... What kind of attorney posts up in the Roosevelt hotel... Much else talks about crack being smoked in her presence... He's had a prolific career... He's not done yet... The numbers don't lie though.. He was basically paid millions to just leave Dallas bc he was playing like crap ever since he left the Lakers.. His numbers went way down starting back when the supposed habit started so who really knows.. He's out and about, posing for pics, eating miso soup.. Don't think crackies are dining out much.. Literally not one shred of concrete Proof..

He answered the questions but because they were not the answers you wanted now you're calling him a liar tmz? Thank you lamar, I know you only stopped and answered the questions because of your fans.
Be strong and your fans will be here with you every step of the way.
