Lamar Odom's crack addiction is beyond bad. We're talking the point where even his own dealer, a man who deals crack for a living, had to cut him off.
TMZ quotes sources close to the dealer in claiming that he had delivered the powerful substance to the NBA star all summer long, but it got to be too much.
Last week, Lamar Odom's crack addiction became insatiable.
Incessantly, he would call, demanding more and more crack.
Apparently even his longtime, go-to dealer got scared enough to cut Lamar off ... partly for his own good but mostly to cover his own behind as well.
After all, if Odom dies, he'd no longer be off the grid.
Authorities would investigate and come down on him like wife Khloe Kardashian is trying to come down on her husband, only he'd actually go to prison.
Lamar, of course, has not necessarily stopped using.
He just had to find a new source, which isn't hard if you're invested in the whole scene like he apparently is. Guy has his connections all over it seems.
The name Polina Polonsky ring a bell?
In fact, after leaving rehab after one day, rumors surfaced that he wasn't ready to get clean or admit he had an issue, and is already back on drugs.
He's refused multiple interventions from Khloe Kardashian's family, his former NBA teammates and his friends from NYC, but no one can get through.
There are reports that Odom is receiving out-patient treatment for addiction, and though this has not been confirmed, we really hope it's the case.
Any treatment is better than nothing right now.
On a positive note, he was last seen Friday at a sushi restaurant, where he ordered soup and green tea and was described as upbeat and healthy-looking.
So there's that.
