Lamar Odom Denies Having A Drug Problem
Most people might be worried about Lamar Odomís life implosion, but Lamar Odom is most definitely not concerned. The former Los Angeles Laker was out and about in LA yesterday when he was asked a series of questions about his current situation, and apparently, he thinks everything is skating along just as smoothly as ever.
Speaking to TMZ, Odom told the outletís cameraman heís 1) planning to play in the NBA this season, 2) still talking to his wife Khloe Kardashian on a regular basis, 3) doesnít need professional help, 4) doesnít have a drug problem and 5) is in a great place. So, if youíre keeping score at home, either everything youíve heard about Odom over the past month is a vicious lie, or heís completely unwilling to acknowledge the utter state of disrepair his life has fallen into.
Thereís a difference between not openly talking about whatís going on in your personal life and not actively dealing with the problems in your personal life. If Odom doesnít want to release a statement verifying that heís gone off the rails, thatís totally understandable. Whether his wife is a reality star or not, he isnít obligated to cater to the media. Unfortunately, however, this lack of communication seems to be going much deeper. He seems to be avoiding his own issues and just not dealing with them to the point where he either hasnít gone to rehab or went to rehab and checked out after a single day, depending on which version of the story youíd like to believe.
Lamar says heís waiting for his phone to ring in order to play this season for an NBA squad, but until he gets prolonged help and proves heís sober, that phone call is not going to come. Every single day he waits will only make it harder to achieve long-term sobriety and to convince others to take a chance on him.
Pop Blendís sincerest thoughts go out to Khloe and everyone else who cares about Lamar. Hereís to hoping he gets his head out of his ass and decides to start taking his current situation seriously.
