Reports emerge that ex-husband of Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom, is found with ‘black tar heroin’
Those krazy Kardashian lives are never very quiet, and recently, in the world of the world’s most famous family, things have been more rocky than usual.
Not only have Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick split up after nine years together, but after the heart-breaking news last month that Khloe Kardashian and former husband, Lamar Odom’s friend died from a drug overdose, and it seems like Lamar may still be tackling his own old demons and past.
The 35-year-old basketball player reportedly suffered a drug relapse when he visited Jamie Sangouthai, who is his best friend who sadly died through IV drug use, a friend tells Life & Style magazine in the US.
While they were staying at a Best Western hotel in LA, two months before Jamie’s death, Lamar and Jamie reportedly left evidence that they’d been inhaling black tar heroin. The magazine has released photos of the drug, straws and burnt tinfoil.
A friend of Lamar says: ‘Lamar left for Las Vegas in mid-May, and he’s been regularly getting high.’
Lamar’s previously been suspended for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy twice in eight months, and he was arrested for driving under the influence in 2013. He was given a sentence of three years’ probation and three months of alcohol abuse treatment. And although he assures those worried about him that he’ll seek treatment, his continuing strange behaviour of slurred speech and mood swings, are making those close to him to become increasingly concerned.
‘His friends are scared that he’ll wind up like his friend Bobby Heyward and Jamie’ says the friend.
Lamar sadly lost another friend, Bobby Heywood, due to a drug-related death, just a week after Jamie.
Lamar and Khloe Kardashian got married in 2009, which was featured in the Keeping Up With The Kardashians series, and by the 2011, the couple had their own spin-off show, Khloe and Lamar.
However, at the end of 2013, after months of rumors that they had separated, 31-year-old Khloe filed for divorce.
We hope Lamar gets the help he may need.
