Lamar Odom Finally Opens Up About Drug Allegations

This Just In 5

Lamar OdomSooooo ... Lamar Odom. Isn't he supposed to be, like, holed up in a crack den somewhere? Apparently not. TMZ managed to get Lamar to open up for the first time since all of those drug rumors started, and guess what? Lamar seems like, er, totally fine. Obviously, not all addicts walk around looking like they're on death's door, so who knows. But this video certainly doesn't clear anything up. In fact, asked if he's spoken to Khloe lately -- whom he is supposedly not even on speaking terms with -- he laughed like that was the silliest question he'd ever heard and said, "Of course! That's my wife!"

Here's how it all went down:

TMZ videographer: Hey, your fans are worried about you. [Nice opener!] You doing okay?

Lamar: How do I look?

TMZ: You look great.

Lamar: There you go.

TMZ: So you don't have a drug problem, right?

Lamar: Naw.

TMZ: Think you need professional help?

Lamar: Naw.

[Stuff about basketball ... blah blah ... ]

TMZ: Spoken to Khloe, man?

Lamar: [Laughing] That's my wife! Of course!

Well, you can't exactly expect him to come out and admit he has a drug problem ... unless he's talking to Oprah. But he does appear healthy and like his old self in this video.

TMZ insists he's in denial. And certainly his recent DUI doesn't look good. Not to mention all of that talk about Khloe having no idea where Lamar even was.

But has all of this been exaggerated? Or is Lamar lying? Ack, who knows. Stay tuned.

Do you think he's telling the truth?

Who cares I am so sick of all these celebs.who have millions and millions of dollars and act like their lives are so bad they have to get high. Their inner demons and blah , blah. Not saying they don't haveany but speaking as a former meth addict for 10 years it pisses me off. I got hooked by using with my mom after she moved us into a meth lab when i was 12. Iots of addicts can't afford to get the help the need be it rehab or psychological help. Sorry but that just pisses me off.

Lamar is telling HIS truth, i.e., what he has convinced himself is true. That is the diabolical nature of addiction: Once the pattern and need is ingrained, that becomes the new reality; and yes, many folks walk around heavily addicted or even high as they go about their daily lives. The thing is: Not too many people, if any, go to a rehab facility just for the heck of a fun field trip! Lamar agreed to go there, if only for a day; just because he did not stay does not by any stretch of the imagination mean he does not have a problem. And the fact is, he may well have spoken with Khloe, AND she has no idea where he is. There are plenty of gray areas surrounding the one thing that probably is at the center of all the murk: Lamar is an addict.

What perplexes me is that he is a professional athlete and it was my understanding that they received if not frequent at least regular drug tests. So why didn't he get in trouble with the league? It makes me skeptical that is just not some PR thing or even a way to drag him through the mud after cheating on his wife.
