Lamar Odom may have dismissed any reports of a substance abuse problem when paparazzi confronted him in L.A. earlier this week, but a new story suggests that not only was Lamar using, but he went to great lengths to maintain his pricey habit, despite the Kardashians’ best efforts to stop him.
A source close to the family claims that, after Lamar decided not to seek treatment for his alleged crack problem, “Khloe put a hold on all their credit cards so he couldn’t get cash.”
The friend claims that with the account frozen, Lamar became enraged and took out his frustration on his long-suffering wife.
“Lamar became infuriated and stole some of her jewelry in a fit of rage to sell for drugs. He’s spent $1,000 a day at times, and he still owes thousands to his dealers.”
While that kind of heartbreaking action might make sense for your run-of-the mill junkie, the odds that Lamar Odom, who’s worth an estimated $56 million, can’t figure out any way to come up with a few bucks — or even a few thousand of them — seems a little suspect.
It seems even stranger that Lamar would have only one bank account as well, and that Khloe would be able to freeze it without needing his signature. But if pet psychics exist, maybe totally rule-free banks are a thing in L.A. too.
Do you believe that Lamar would do something so terrible?
