Lamar Odom does not have a drug problem, he doesn’t need rehab, and he’ll be playing in the NBA this year.
Well, that’s what Lamar Odom says.
The embattled NBA star has been having a rough few months, but Odom still insists that “life is good.”
TMZ caught up with Odom last night and was able to ask him a few questions about his personal life.
When asked if he had a drug problem, Odom said: “How do I look? Good? Well there you go.”
When asked if he needed to seek professional help, Odom said: “No man. Life is good.”
And yes, Odom still thinks that he’s going to play in the NBA this year.
Lamar said all of this just a few days after getting out of rehab. (You can watch the TMZ interview here.)
Reports circulated last month that Khloe Kardashian was starting to get worried about Odom’s drug habit. She reportedly had an intervention for Lamar and eventually convinced him to go to rehab. Lamar’s out of rehab, but he isn’t out of trouble. The former NBA star was arrested for a DUI last month, and he is still reportedly fighting a drug addiction.
One report even claims that Odom is spending $1,000 a day on drugs.
Polina Polonsky, a woman who claims that she lived with Odom for six weeks over the summer during his drug bender, says that she personally watched Lamar smoke crack and do other drugs in her apartment.
Are you surprised that Lamar is still in denial about his drug habits?
