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 ...

5 X500,000 = 2.5 million plus the 2 million for the divorce then if she can prove he's cheatin with anybody that stands still long enough plus claiming his being a drug addict would damage her ability to make a descend living after the divorce is worth about 100.000 dollars a month in alimony ......

Look I kinda can see his point of view.......


Wake up one morning and realize you married a Big Foot creature from a different galaxy (not human) with a mother-in-law from H-ll and a sister-in-law, urine soaked.


Wow! Bummer!

No amount of drugs can erase those troubling thoughts.

I see 2 separate photos. One of Lamar and one of some old looking Jewish man who probably bought the scrubbers for his wife at home. This story is stupid - it's like they want Lamar to die or commit suicide. LEAVE HIM ALONE YOU FREAKS.

OK, TMZ, we've got it - you guys are pretty damn sure Odom have a huge drug problem. And we also get that you've cashed Kris Jenner's paycheck, therefore making it impossible for you to stop posting about that story.

But, if the man actually have a problem... could you please let him breathe a little, so he could actually deal with it privately?

Let the man live, dammit - you ain't helping him at all, following him non-stop... as if you ultimately care.
