Lamar Odom Drug Use — Why He Lied To The Public
Lamar knows he’s in trouble, but he’s not ready to seek help just yet.
“He’s ashamed and it’s time to leave him alone and let him get help on his own,” a source close to the one-time Sixth Man of the Year tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Everybody knows what the deal is.”
We’re told Lamar, 33, is in desperate need of help to tackle his alleged drug addiction but he has to take the first step to recovery on his own.
“That’s something he’s got to do with his family and his support group,” the source adds.
On Sept. 10, TMZ obtained a video of Lamar being questioned by a cameraman outside a Los Angeles restaurant. When the cameraman asked Lamar about his alleged drug use, Lamar insisted he does not use or smoke crack. We don’t know for sure what’s going on with Lamar, but it sounds like he could be in denial.
If Lamar Odom Is Left Alone, Will That Help Him Recover?
Lamar does have a drug issue, but he’s under no obligation to divulge that to a cameraman, especially someone he doesn’t know, our well-placed source says.
“Like he’s really going to confess his issues to some man he doesn’t even know,” the source said, adding that Lamar will “be fine” if he’s simply left alone.
Now it’s your turn to sound off, HollywoodLifers. Do you think if Lamar is left alone he will overcome his drug use?
