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 ...

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.

Can't convict anybody on this cir***stantial evidence....
1. He is not carrying the bag
2. He is not in the same picture with the guy with the
bag.
3. He never admitted to having the bag....
this is all just innuendo and cir***stantial ....and coming from TMZ its pure mean assed mud slinging.....
and what if he is a crack addict .....What the hell is it your business anyway....None .....
Harvey get your nose out of Kris crotch and come up for air......
Because you keep going like this and next year TMZ will only be a tax write off for a failed business......
Someone on several other sites and in England are calling for a complete blackout and boycott of anything Kardashion ...and more and more people are joining in pretty soon you won't have anything but hired trolls payed by Kastrashions on here.....and won't that be dam boring for everybody...

I'm shocked that Odom hasn't been drug tested since his performance started falling off a couple years ago. Somebody in the NBA offices are slacking.

So when you go to buy this do you need to show your ID and be put on a list that records how much you buy -- is it sold from behind the counter.

I can not believe that in the poll 10% of you think this is an innocent purchase. .Even if he didn't have addiction issues (which we know he does) do you really think he does his own cleaning????????? I hope the 10% who voted innocent purchase are not voting in the political elections.

Praying for Lamar to get help. Good people sometimes get involed with bad things. People defending him and saying he has a right cause "he married a Kardashian" don't help matters. there's no excuse for this, he is a father and needs to be setting an example for his children. Which means if your having problems (with a marriage, or anything) you don't turn to drugs to make it "go away". If you are truely a fan of Lamars you will stop making bull**** excuses for him. He needs help not "justifications" for whyits ok to be high.

This is just Kris' way of destroying Lamar prior to Khloe filing for divorce so that she gets the lion's share of his money. Harvey Levin is Kris Kardashian's bitch, Look out sports stars or you may be next on TMZ's list.

This guy has millions why would he need this. If he were on crack ( which I don't believe) he can buy himself a real crack pipe hes rich he doesn't need this.
