The media has been making some pretty outrageous claims regarding the troubled marriage between Lamar Odom and his wife Khloe Kardashian, and for the last couple of weeks it’s been reported that the real cause of the couple’s demise is Lamar is allegedly suffering from drug addiction. With conflicting reports on just what the NBA Free Agent is allegedly addicted to, the most frequent reports suggest he’s on crack while others cite prescription pills and c*caine. Although two women have spoken up in the last several months and claimed they had an affair with Lamar, those close to Khloe have reportedly told the media that Lamar’s alleged refusal to go to rehab might eventually put an end to the marriage.
Despite all of the conflicting headlines, Lamar’s camp has been pretty mum on the accusations. Although Lamar’s agent did let the media know the basketball player was never missing and his wife has always known his whereabouts; no one in Lamar’s camp has confirmed or denied that he is on drugs.
However, a general manager of the NBA says Lamar’s career is pretty much over considering not only is he allegedly battling substance abuse but he also recently got arrested for DUI. Despite the reports, Lamar is finally talking for the first time since the allegations have been rampant and he denies that he is on drugs. He tells a TMZ pap when asked if he has a drug problem:
He also denied that he needs professional help. Although reports claim Lamar hasn’t spoken to Khloe in days, the basketball player denied the reports and told the pap when asked if he’s spoken to Khloe:
“That’s my wife. Of course. [laughs].”
He also said he loves his fans and “life is good.”
