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."

What I don't get is- if he's NOT on crack then why isn't there a lawsuit against TMZ. So that leave two other possiblities- 1. he's on crack 2.or he's in on the story. So there it is.

Why is Lamar wrong on all 3 counts...because Kris Jenner says he is?

Everyone knows that Harvey Levin and TMZ play the role of Kris Jenner's media bashing outlet!

His statement is more credible than anything else that has been presented. I'm sick of these trashy hos and anonymous sources. There's no proof

This is all for ratings. This has been the lowest rated season ever for the Lardashians. Also, it takes some of the heat and embarrassment off of Mama Kris for being dropped by her talk show.

Lamar has a crack problem ? More like a in-law problem. Leave the man alone if you had to deal with that famliy( Kardashian ). Drugs and booze won't kill that pain. Get rid of her and find a women who'll love you, take care of you and doesn't need a TV crew to tape your home life..move on man

This is all pretty typical of the NBA and Hollywood cultures. What is so surprising? And, really, who cares. Both are losers bringing absolutley nothing to the betterment of society.

TMZ's quote after Lamar's response that everything is hunky-dory is that "Odom is clearly in denial". I differ & say that he 'doesn't want or care to talk or share any information with TMZ...
