Lamar Odom

Buys Popular Ingredient for

Homemade Crack Pipes

9/11/2013 7:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0910-lamar-odom-akmOminous sign for Lamar Odom's battle with drug addiction -- he scooped up a household cleaning product that doubles as a vital part of homemade crack pipes ... and TMZ has the photos.

Lamar and his driver walked out of a San Fernando Valley pharmacy on Tuesday with a bag full of items ... most notably ... Chore Boy copper scrubbing pads.

0910-lamar-chore-akmHow commonly are the pads used for drug abuse? Type it into Google ... and "crack" is the first auto-fill topic besides the product name. Also, Forbes magazine wrote an article about its use as a filter in makeshift crack pipes.

Oh, and Urban Dictionary defines it like this: "Brand name of scouring pad used also by people smoking crack to retain some of the cocaine vapors."

According to the photo agency that snapped the pics ... Lamar made the conspicuous purchase shortly after meeting Khloe Kardashian's assistant to pick up some clothes. We're told the pharmacy is near the house where he used to live with Khloe.

As TMZ first told you, multiple people in Lamar's life -- like his estranged wife -- are saying he desperately needs to get in to rehab for many addictions, especially crack.

So, it's possible the NBA star had some kitchen cleaning to do, but we gotta ask ...

Will TMZ dissect what he's wearing next? That outfit could be what typical crack heads wear. Enough already. We get it. Your worse than a dog with a bone sometimes.

You can vote down and "hate" all you want but the dude is a crack addict....PERIOD. You don't go and buy that ****....at a pharmacy no less...unless you are "on the pipe". He will be scrutinized until he either gets arrested or goes to inpatient rehab and stays. It's not just the TMZ people chasing this dude around btw. He probably has at least 4-5 other agencies frequenting where he is/may be. Get help Lamar and you might be able to salvage your life/career etc. The pressure will never stop until you admit your an addict and get help. PERIOD.

Maybe Khloe knew and accepted him as a junkie but when the mistresses started coming out she couldn't take the marriage any more.

Sorry but I used to be a crack head 15 years ago. Chore Boy gives it away. I'm telling you every crack head needs that for their pipes and I'm telling you he is smoking crack. He is not scrubbing pans.

If Khloe waits it out, then she and her sleazy mother, can inherit the entire estate~ you know the K. sewer rats are stratically planning their every move. Just like their father did, to get O.J Simpson (Khloe's allegeded bio dad) off for murder. Legacy~

Currently your poll stands at 91% pipe and 10% cleaning. Is that TMZ math?

TMZ what the hell does this prove? 1 lamar isnt holding the bag and two why couldnt he be using this to clean up his current spot? deplicting an innocent man for what should be spare change to such a money driven business. There isnt currency in hell so the kardashians better use up every last dime until they our engulfed with flames. you too tmz, will see your day larry karma will come back around in three folds approving fake stories like this makes you far less credible than those tabloid magazine or kim kardashians fake ass.

It has to be great to be a celebrity cause you're rich and doing what you love while getting payed for it but at the same time it has to suck cause you have the whole world in your business and paparazzi...SMH now I see kanye be snapping on them. No privacy at all. It's good for the viewers but it got to be a pain in the a** for the celebrity.
