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 ...

An article from the International Business Times explains why PMK with help from TMZ have gone to the extreme to paint Lamar as a crack head. Lamar needs to start divorce proceeding and get far away from this family of hustlers. To go to this extreme, tells me that the Kardashians are not as financially successful as they want people to believe as was reported a few months ago. They need Kanye and Lamar more than the reverse.

I think this is brilliant detective work. Men don't buy Chore Boy because they're fastidious clean freaks. C'mon!!!!!

Lolololololo. So Urban Dictionary is now the go to site for everything you need to know about a drug addict? TMZ you are a pathetic bunch of losers tied to the apron strings of a Pimp named Kris Jenner. Sad you think the public cares or buys what you are selling about Odom.

I really dont feel in my heart that Lamar odom is doing drugs. but if he is lets try to find out what drove him to do this, we should not judge someone or talk about them in such a way god dont like ugly, tmz you all need to get the facts before you accuse, I cant say if he is doing drugs or not I really do pray that he isnt! Leave him alone. If he is doing drugs then hey its his life not ours. Im tired of hearing about it and if his wife wasnt strong enough to stand by her husband then that is their problem its really not about them anyway its all about how this is gonna affect these innocent sweet babies,

Lamar if you are doing this... Look what it did to your family and friends you have came so far don't let this take you down a path that you will not be able to walk away from. You are such a role model to so many it saddens me if this is true. Please for yourself and no one else get help.

Well, it doesn't appear Lamar is in any hurry to get back home to Khloe. It would be better news if he had enough of a controlling wife and all the crap the Kardashians' aspire to. The drug issue may be a nice escape, but eventually reality is going to come a knockin'.
