Some more details surrounding Lamar Odom and his dealings with crack are starting to leak out, and the details get worst by the day. RadarOnline is reporting that Odom spent over $50,000 on crack rock over a three-year period.  A man claiming to be Odom’s crack dealer, gave the full rundown on Odom’s habit, and how he reportedly smoked crack before a game. The troubled two-time NBA championship winner’s preferred method of substance abuse is to freebase yayo, a process popular amongst the Hollywood party crowd, by which the drug is purified by burning it and the user then inhales the fumes, the dealer said. In a blockbuster video interview, Odom’s New York-based “Mr Fix It” alleged he’s been in the presence of the ex-Los Angeles Clippers star “high” on as many ten occasions since 2010. “He likes to party,” the self-confessed dealer-to-the-stars told Radar. “He’s a pretty nice guy to be honest with you, but he’s becoming … his problem seems to be becoming a bigger problem. “In my experience, he literally likes yayo — he is a yayo guy. He likes to smoke it,” added the man, who spoke to us on the condition we obscured his face and voice.” When asked if he’d ever eye-witnessed Odom smoking or freebasing, the man recounted one instance when he said the E! reality star was higher than a kite. “Specifically, I want to say [it was] February of 2013,” he said. “He was in New York. For other reasons, I don’t really want to give the specific location of the place … sounds weird that I want to keep a level of discretion at this point, but, he was in New York. He comes to New York a lot.” Shockingly, the dealer claimed that the drug spree actually took place before the Clippers’ 14-point win over the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 10. Odom played 22 minutes in the subsequent game, scoring two points and snaring seven rebounds and five assists. “I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it,” the man said. ”He spent about 16 grand.” “In one sitting?” Radar probed. “More or less, yeah,” the dealer responded. Lamar Odom can deny he has a problem all he wants, but the picture I used for this article says it all.
