Lamar Odom is finally addressing rumors concerning his alleged drug addiction, marriage and plans to play in the NBA next season.
Odom, the 33-year-old NBA free agent, has made headlines in recent weeks for allegedly stepping out on his marriage and battling with a drug addiction that he allegedly only checked into a rehabilitation center for one day to treat. However, he recently refuted claims made by TMZ about an alleged addiction to crack-cocaine and Oxycontin.
During an outing in Studio City, Calif. recently, Odom made sure to take pictures with fans before TMZ reporters questioned if he was doing ok.
"How do I look," Odom questioned before responding to the reporter who acknowledged that he looked great. "There you go."
When asked if he had a drug problem and needed professional help, the NBA forward simply responded, "nah."
While Odom averaged 4.0 points and 5.9 rebounds in 82 games for the Los Angeles Clippers last season, the free agent told TMZ he hoped to play for "anybody that's a fan" next season.
Despite the rumors that have surrounded the basketball player for weeks, he refused to show signs of stress when approached by reporters.
"Life is good...life is good you never know," Odom said of his future in the NBA.
Although he attempted to end the conversation with TMZ reporters by jumping into a black SUV, Odom rolled down his window and decided to respond to questions about him speaking to his wife.
"That's my wife," Odom said with a laugh. "Of course!"
Khloe Kardashian-Odom, the reality television star and wife to the NBA free agent, is continuing to showcase her emotions in cryptic tweets amid the troubling headlines concerning her husband.
"I may never understand…," she wrote in a recent tweet.
