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."

It seems like he really is in denial, won't look @ the camera, not like the once happy go lucky Lamar. Truly hope he gets help like yesterday, & gets his life back on track. TMZ, I'm curious about that gem, Polina-did you guys check her "credentials" as far as being a defense attorney? She certainly doesn't appear very reputable, admitting to being in the company of someone doing drugs, having him "help" her with summaries (REALLY!!??) What a winner!!!!

Crack addiction is not like heroin where you need it every day, you may only use 1-10 times a month and unlike snorting coke it leaves the body quickly, in the morning your good to go, I kept a job and all responsibilities covered for many years without anyone knowing. You suffer in ways that are not easily identified .

It doesn't seem as if you have a Crack "problem" Mr. Odom, more like an addiction.

Really TMZ, everything that comes out of the mouth of the Kardashians are lies, and you repeat them over and over. All the credibility you had built has all gone down the drain with this bias crap you always report on this family. First destroy Kris Humpreys, now it's on to Lamar. Hey Scott.....watch out.
These are disgusting human beings, who stab people in the back with a smile on their face, and you're worse for enabling them.

My comments weren't posting on an older article - I was wondering why for 2 years Khloe allowed the crack dealer into their home? Why so long until she finally put her foot down? Maybe she finally realized he was a lost cause and wasn't going to clean up.
