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 ...

Kanya was pictured blowing his boyfriend..doesnt mean hes gay,maybe he just likes the taste of penis. And when he was pictured with gerbils and a ball gag maybe he just likes animals.but the butt plug is suspecious.

I get a kick out of the ignorance in some of these comments.

Do you truly believe a man with this money does his own cleaning????

He purchased this for one reason and one reason only and TMZ is o.k. for reporting this because when this when shows up dead possibly it will deter just one person from starting a life of drugs.

Maybe these are for his mother-in-law? Flossing her teeth perhaps? or scraping her forked tongue??

I seriously doubt that either he or one of the Kardashian's really needed to scrub dishes. Can't believe the amount of fools supporting and making excuses for this crackhead.
