Yes, we have another Lamar Odom update. You have to wonder how much of this is Kardashian spin and people looking to capitalize off of LO’s problems. First up, Lamar’s rehab stint allegedly lasted just one day according to TMZ – or he never checked in- after checking into rehab on Wednesday. Sources tell TMZ that LO has gone “missing” again and friends are concerned for his well-being.
LO’s New York connect spoke out earlier in the week claiming he supplied Lamar in February with coke before the Clippers faced off against the Knicks. And also stating that Lamar spent $50,000 with him over a three year period. Another mole in Lamar’s camp told TMZ that once Odom moved into the Roosevelt hotel in Hollywood, his drug addiction ramped up to the point that he was spending $800 a day on cocaine (either crack or your garden-variety coke)
Lamar Odom fell deep into the world of hardcore drugs during a wild summer in Hollywood … where he spent as much as $1,000 in a single day to fuel his growing addiction to crack — according to sources familiar with the situation. We’re told the hotel room was used like a flop house … where Lamar was surrounded by his pal and 7 or 8 other drug abusers — strangers — who came in and out of the room throughout the day and night … for several months straight. According to sources, Odom was dropping — on average — $800 per day, but sometimes more, for multiple drugs, including crack.
Quick question, do drug dealers have publicist?
There are also rumors that there is a LO sextape making the rounds to porn industry distributors. Mind you, Khloe is not who is supposed to be on the tape with him, it’s rumored to be a “hip-hop dancer.” And there is word that LO is considering a tell-all on the Kardashian family where he’d spill secrets like who Khloe’s real dad is and Kim’s thoughts on Kanye West.
I’d take some of this with a grain of salt. The hope is still that Lamar gets the help he needs and the leeches and enablers out of his life.
