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.”
