Lamar Odom says he turned down invite to Kim Kardashian-Kanye West proposal in bizarre interview (Video)

Lamar OdomLamar Odom has seemingly decided that he is not going to hide from cameras and paparazzi anymore, and I’m not sure that is the wisest decision. After speaking with a photographer on Monday and flashing his wedding ring to prove that things are fine with Khloe Kardashian, Odom was once again chatty with a TMZ reporter on Tuesday night.

Odom said he was invited to the big Kanye West-Kim Kardashian proposal at AT&T Park on Monday night but that he had other plans. He once again flashed his wedding band when the interviewer implied that he did not attend the proposal because he wasn’t welcome. After that, Odom seemed to imply that he has had discussions with the Los Angeles Lakers about a possible return, claiming he could “play a basketball game and probably play really well” right now if he had to.

From there, Odom tried to flip the interview and basically lecture TMZ’s guy about the proper way to start an interview with someone. Whoever Odom was with — the same guy that was with him during Monday’s interview — tried several times to get Lamar to walk away. It was almost like he was babysitting Odom.

We’re not going to draw the conclusion that Odom’s life is revolving around smoking crack and partying based on a couple of incredibly brief interviews, but his behavior certainly seems bizarre. His sudden willingness to talk to the paparazzi about weird stuff kind of makes you scratch your head.

Lamar Odom asked if he’s still with Khloe Kardashian, flashes wedding ring

Lamar Odom Khloe KardashianLamar Odom has been very tough to spot in public since rumors of his alleged drug abuse and failing marriage began popping up in every gossip publication in America. On Monday, TMZ was somehow able to track Odom down and spend a few minutes chatting with the former Los Angeles Lakers forward.

Odom’s friend or manager or whoever he was with tried to cut the interview off several times, but Lamar seemed to be in a chatty mood. He spoke about eating healthy and becoming a champion. He also talked about how he feels great and that living beats the alternative, which of course is dying. The most revealing part of the chat came when the photographer asked him if he has spoken to Khloe Kardashian lately.

“Do you see my wedding ring on?” Odom asked.

TMZ has not made the video embeddable, but you can watch it here. You can’t make out the ring in the video, but the photographer acknowledged that it was there and asked if he could get a still photo of it. That obviously means Odom was trying to imply that they are still together, whether it’s true or not.

Some people are undoubtedly going to draw the conclusion that Odom was messed up because of how weird he seemed talking about “the parade” and getting all philosophical. Just last month, we were reading reports about Odom’s life revolving around smoking crack and partying and Khloe being anxious to divorce him. Odom’s willingness to chat with TMZ may cool off some of that speculation.

Khloe Kardashian reportedly ‘anxious’ to divorce Lamar Odom

Khloe-Kardashian-Lamar-Odom-trophyKhloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have reportedly been living separate from one another for quite some time. A divorce almost seems inevitable at this point, which had led many to wonder what the hold up is. Would it be messy? According to a recent report from TMZ, a split between Khloe and Lamar would be be relatively easy.

Sources reportedly told TMZ that Khloe is “anxious” to end the marriage but fears filing for divorce could push Odom over the edge. The couple supposedly drew up a prenup before getting married that would keep all of their assets separate and should prevent any serious complications. Perhaps the drugs are the only holdup.

TMZ also noted that there is not an infidelity clause in the prenup that would result in Khloe getting more money if Lamar cheated, despite what has been previously reported.

A couple of weeks ago, a report indicated that Odom’s drug habit has not gotten any better and that his life is revolving around smoking crack and partying. He was also recently spotted buying ingredients that are commonly used to make a homemade crack pipe.

With everything we have heard about the state of Odom’s life, it makes perfect sense that Khloe would be afraid of worsening his addiction by filing for divorce. It seems obvious that he’s in a very, very bad place to begin with.

Lamar Odom’s life reportedly ‘revolving around smoking crack and partying’

Charles-Barkley-Lamar-Odom-jokeEarlier this month, we shared with you a report about how Lamar Odom had supposedly acknowledged that he had a substance abuse issue and checked into a drug rehabilitation facility. That later turned out to not be true, with one gossip magazine claiming Odom left rehab after one day and another confirming that he is not in a facility. The latest report about Odom’s alleged drug use indicates his condition is as bad as ever.

TMZ reported on Thursday that Odom has been staying in a home in a gated community 100 miles from Los Angeles and partying with two young women — one of whom he has supposedly become intimate with. The report also states that Odom’s life has been “revolving around smoking crack and partying.”

Multiple sources privy to Lamar’s current state tell TMZ … Lamar has a driver who is regularly shuttling back and forth from L.A. to his rental home with one purpose — scoring drugs, including crack. We’re told Lamar is so paranoid … he insists the driver only buy small quantities of crack at a time, so as not to draw too much attention to him — and that means frequent trips to score the drug.

Lamar almost never leaves the home. He’s smoking crack and partying with the 2 women, both in their early 20s. His life now revolves around smoking crack and listening to rap music.

Last month, Odom was seen walking out of a CVS store with steel wool scrubbing pads, which are a popular ingredient used to make homemade crack pipes. TMZ’s sources reportedly reiterated several times that Odom fears he is being watched. He has supposedly been using an app on his phone that automatically erases text messages once they are read and alerts him if someone has taken a screenshot of the text.

It’s hard to separate truth from fiction, but we’re all still waiting for some stories to surface about Odom seeking help. As of now, the only reports we have seen indicate he is heading in the wrong direction.

Lamar Odom’s dad says Kardashians are ruining son; Lamar responds

Khloe Kardashian Lamar OdomLamar Odom’s dad, Joe, went off on the Kardashians in an interview, leading his son to respond via Twitter.

Odom’s father was a heroin addict and not around while Lamar grew up. Odom was raised by his mother — who died of colon cancer when he was 12 — and his grandmother. Lamar developed a relationship with his father later in life, but maintains a lack of trust of his old man. Perhaps it’s because Joe is capable of going scorched earth on his son’s loved ones.

Speaking with Radar Online, Joe Odom went off on the Kardashians, labeling Kris Jenner an “evil b—” and blaming them for the downfall of his son.

Lamar Odom reportedly bought ingredient used to make homemade crack pipes

Lamar OdomIf there is one person in America right now who can make headlines by purchasing copper scrubbing pads, it’s Lamar Odom. Chore Boy copper scrubbing pads are a common household cleaning product that also happen to be a popular ingredient used to make homemade crack pipes. You know where this is going.

TMZ reported on Tuesday that Odom was spotted by a photography agency walking out of a pharmacy in the San Fernando Valley with a bag full of items that included a box of Chore Boy scrubbing pads. Some people will undoubtedly say that it is ridiculous to jump to conclusions because Odom bought steel wool, but we are talking about a guy who is rumored to have had an $800 per day drug habit and allegedly bought $50,000 worth of cocaine from his drug dealer over the past three years.

As TMZ noted, the word “crack” is one of the first that comes up in Google’s auto-fill topics if you type in “Chore Boy.” Urban dictionary is also quite familiar with copper cleaning pads being used in crack pipes:

“An abrasive copper pad for cleaning, but in the urban definition is as a necessary part of creating a crack pipe … Brand name of scouring pad used also by people smoking crack to retain some of the cocaine vapors. Can then be fired up and smoked for a second hit.”

Odom reportedly made the purchase a short time after he met up with Khloe Kardashian’s assistant to pick up some clothes.

It’s quite possible that Odom has a pan at home with grease stuck to it and he simply needed the power of steel wool. But when multiple reports say you are addicted to crack and prescription medications, you kind of lose the benefit of the doubt.

Lamar Odom reportedly had $800 per day drug habit, not in rehab

Lamar OdomIt’s a good thing Lamar Odom was making millions in the NBA, because he needed that kind of cash to support his drug habit throughout the summer.

TMZ reports that Odom often spent around $800 per day on drugs during the summer. They say his habit worsened after he moved out of his home with wife Khloe Kardashian and into a hotel room at the Roosevelt Hotel in Hollywood. Odom reportedly was shacking up with Polina Polonsk at the time, and it sounds like all the stories she told about her relationship with the forward are true.

Odom’s hotel room supposedly was used like a flop house, where he and someone else did drugs while several strangers came in and out of the room throughout the day and night to do drugs. Odom supposedly was spending around $800 per day on the drugs on average, sometimes more.

A report on Wednesday said Odom went to rehab to get help for his addictions, but TMZ said that was not the case. People Magazine said Odom left rehab after one day, while US Weekly says Odom is not at rehab.
