Lamar Odom

Buys Popular Ingredient for

Homemade Crack Pipes

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

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 ...

No way that rich dude is scouring his own sinks, or pots and pans - he's got servants to do that. Really seems like Lamar has a problem.

Lamar is in big trouble. Being on "Team Lamar" doesn't mean being in denial. The Lakers realized that being a friend means encouraging Lamar to get help, and then giving Lamar a place to go afterwards.

The guy is looking pretty skinny? Seems strange that he'd be along for the ride buying the chore boy pads. I'd put my money on home crack pipe ingredient.

Can we do a poll on if Harvey is in Bed with the Kardashians, or if the Kardashiansns are evil?

Isn't it strange how once Kanye was in the picture Lamar was on the outs? This whole thing REAKS of Kris Jenner. She basically worships Kanye. She's ruining this man's life. (and TMZ is NOT helping)

He might have been with Khloe last evening and had to find some lye soap and those abrasive scrubs to use to bathe her Kardashian stink off him.

Pretty sure being involved with ANYONE in the K clan will drive you to drink (look at Scott) or do drugs. They are rich/famous...but all screwed up in one way or another. Is it really worth it?? I think not.
