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."

Its unfortunate if he is addicted. I wish for his life he would get help. How TMZ is running his name constantly. They certainly know how to tear a person down.. Way to go harvey.. How people blame Khloe or the Kardashians. He is responsible for what goes into his mouth or nose. If he doesnt get help he can forget the NBA and that will be his own fault.... Its sad all the way around. Khloe looks like she is trying to stand by his side. How about that chick supposedly his friend giving tmz live interviews. How can a friend do that to you. Arent friends supposed to help u when times r tough? not profit from hard times. Shes a snake.. Wish u well Lamar

He seems cordial to the reporter and optimistic about playing ball. He state s he's talking to Khloe and she hasn't come forward today to say otherwise. He even laughed! Come on TMZ~ Stop digging for something you're probably not going to find. Im not saying he doesn't have issues but he will seek help when he's ready. Overall, he's a decent guy. Leave him alone.

Hours in rehab. Few hours in the clink for a DUI. Finished last season with the Clippers. And now you are saying he's a washed up basketball player crackhead. I hope he gets him self a good lawyer and sue every last one of you IDIOTS.

I wonder if Rob is also using drugs because of Lamar. They became very close when Rob moved in and on the reality show Rob clearly is going through depression and spends the majority of the time in his bedroom. Just a thought.

I agree that he doesn't have a crack problem. When he wants crack he calls his NEW dealer and gets it.See, no problem! He will eventually have a lack of money problem though.

OK, 15 minutes of infamy is up... leave the crack addict alone. All of the media coverage is not helping.

He'll be singing a different tune when the money runs out. That's when his problems will really start.
