Somewhere in the Odom-Kardashian camp, there is a huge leak. Following the cheating scandal that has plagued Clippers Lamar Odom and his reality TV star wife, Khloe Kardashian-Odom this summer, allegations of drug use by Lamar have dropped into the press. Now comes word via TMZ and Radar online that Lamar’s alleged drug of choice is crack, if you believe TMZ or OxyContin and Ambien per Radar online.
Check the details:
But the two-time championship sixth man allegedly returned to hardcore recreational drug use, it’s claimed, around the same time he was linked to two extramarital affairs.
Two sources tell Radar his main vice is OxyContin,a prescription only painkiller sold in tablets, also known as ‘hillbilly heroin’ or ‘poor man’s heroin’ because of its abuse in rural areas.
Sources say Lamar’s crack use was extreme before he went to rehab, but he cleaned up his act during the basketball season that just ended. Sources say shortly after he hung up his jersey, he started again with a bang.
The NBA can test it’s players up to four-times in a calendar year. I find it hard to believe that CRACK use would go undetected. The possibility of prescription drug abuse seems more likely. It should be noted however that players can only be tested for PED use in the off season.
Lamar’s father Joe is a recovering addict so the addiction gene is in his family. If these allegations are true, I hope Lamar gets the help he needs.
