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 ...

If he can afford a driver he can afford for somebody to clean his pot.

I'm surprised at the amount of people saying Lamar is being given a bad rap, TMZ should lay off, it's the Kardashians fault. TMZ has also endlessly reported on Lindsay Lohan, Charlie Sheen, and Britney Spears (to name a few) when they were dealing with their own issues. He isn't just being attacked and you cannot possibly blame his actions on the Kardashians considering this all started way before Khloe.

TMZ does Kris Jenner pay you for these remarks? Can't you be sued for maligning his character? Are you really allowed to accuse Lamar of crack use with absolutely no proof except a bunch of clowns that want to be famous? I really cannot understand why you have not been sued.

Never heard of this product, but I'm glad to be informed that if I bought it people would think I'm a crack addict!

everyone knows she found someone with the same level of integrity as her family.

give me a break, she looks like big foot, but she is entitled to a 'baller' husband. well look where that mentality led her.

to someone as morally bankrupt as her porn start sister. trash stays with trash.

So the horrible, awful, detestable, Kardashian-hurting Lamar has **KHLOE'S ASSISTANT** buying this stuff? Maybe it's for Khloe and Kris had Harvey get his nose out of her ass long enough to spin the story that it was for Lamar.

I can't believe some of you are still in denial just like Lamar. It's obvious he's a crackhead... Especially now with that purchase. If u watch the show, you'd know LO is a slob...he is NOT using those pads to clean!!!

TMZ you are really pathetic. The driver is the one holding the bag not Lamar. Anybody believe that Lamar is a crackhead are idiots and morons.

Has it occurred to anybody that at this point Lamar is just screwing with tmz? He should move to NYC where nobody cares what he buys or what time of the night he is out.
