Radar Online posted a video interview with a man claiming to be Lamar Odom’s drug dealer, who says the former NBA player has spent $50,000 on cocaine in three years.
The New York-based dealer – who concealed his identity – says he witnessed the former Los Angeles Clippers star consume the drug on as many as 10 occasions since 2010, when Odom visited Queens, where he grew up.
”[Lamar has a] huge problem and he has a very addictive personality. It is becoming worse as you can see,” his alleged dealer told Radar Online. ”He [Lamar] likes to party, 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 cocaine. He is a cocaine guy. He likes to smoke it.”
The alleged dealer said he supplied Odom with cocaine – which he would then freebase. He claims Odom, 33, even freebased cocaine before a game between the LA Clippers and the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden on Feb. 10 this year. He alleges the athlete dropped $16,000 on the drug.
The dealer said: ”I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it. He spent about 16 grand. Quantity wise, it was a little under half a kilo.”
When asked how much Odom spent over three years, he replied: ”Roughly, more than 50 grand … over the time I’ve known him.”
Odom’s father was a heroin addict and his mother died of colon cancer when he was just 12, leaving him to be raised by his grandmother, Mildred.
Amid the drug and cheating allegations, Odom had his driver’s license suspended for one year after he was arrested for driving under the influence (DUI) at 3.25 a.m. last Friday. Paparazzi followed him over the weekend tooling around town in a taxicab.
On Saturday, he was photographed arriving at the home he shares with wife, Khloe Kardashian. Later in the day, he was seen hitting up Blockbuster Video.

7. They said u lost a step, wasn't explosive as once was, the best days was in the real view, questioned your drive, your leadership, your commitment, you don't have killer instinct, going back home is the worst mistake in your career, he got the coach fired, players traded, won't work between him and Kyrie, Him and Kev won't work, love your teammates to much, there's no way he can deliver a championship in his hometown, etc etc etc.... But guess what THATS NONE OF MY BUSINESS #StriveForGreatness #ThisOneIsForTheLand #PutSomeRespeckOnMyName Hahahaha!!! Yes sir
