According to Radar Online
“He’s headed for destruction.” That’s what Lamar Odom‘s childhood friends are saying about their once successful NBA star friend, who is now embroiled in a downward spiral where his alleged drug use has destroyed his career and his marriage to reality-tv star Khloe Kardashian.
So concerned about his well-being were Odom’s childhood friends from Queens, New York, that a handful of them flew out to Los Angeles in an effort to stage an intervention with the former Clippers forward.
“A few weeks ago his friends from the projects in Queens flew out to LA and banged on Lamar’s door trying to have an intervention with him,” a source close to the situation told Radar.
“They wanted to take him home to New York and get him clean but Lamar wouldn’t open the door initially, telling them he ‘didn’t give a f**k what the world thinks” and said they ‘don’t know the pressure he’s under.’”
But the friends finally got Odom to open his door, and what they found was shocking.
“He’s smoking rocks now,” the insider revealed.
“His friends knew that he liked to freebase yayo, but they were shocked to see him with crack. They found more than 60 grams of crack in his possession and he had no intentions of stopping.”
This intervention attempt is one of three that confronted Odom in an attempt to get him clean.
“Lamar feels invincible because he’s rich and famous, but he also seems scared that his destiny is to be a drug addict like his father,” the source told Radar.
SMH poor Lamar. If addiction does run through his genes, then it can possibly be harder for him to break his addictive behavior. We pray all goes well for Lamar, before he embarrasses himself any further.
