A man claiming to be Lamar Odom’s drug dealer said he’s done $50,000 worth of business with the troubled NBA player over the past three years.
In an interview with Radar Online, the self-proclaimed “mystery man” said that Odom, 33, has a “huge problem and he has a very addictive personality. It is becoming worse as you can see.”
The drug dealer said that two-time NBA champ “likes to party” and that cocaine, which he prefers to freebase, is his drug of choice.
“I do not know anything about these new developments about him using pills. I do not know anything about that. The cocaine he fancies,” the man who requested his face and voice be disguised told the gossip site.
In “one sitting” this past February, the man said that Odom purchased $16,000 of cocaine from him. It was during that time that the man actually witnessed the basketball player smoking cocaine.
“I know it for a fact because I sold him the stuff and saw him smoke it,” the man said. ”He spent about 16 grand.”
This incident occurred when Odom’s last team, the Los Angeles Clippers, defeated the Knicks by 14 on February 10, 2013.
The drug dealer only interacts with Odom when he’s in New York, but noted that Odom, who grew up in Queens, is in the city a lot.
The interview comes on the heels of a bad run of news for Odom. On August 30 he was arrested on suspicion of DUI, which came after weeks of swirling drug use rumors and the disintegration of his marriage to Khloe Kardashian.
Despite signs of a serious problem, Radar reports that the Odom has resisted the help of friends and family, and is refusing to seek treatment.
