TMZ says that the Los Angeles Clippers wanted to re-sign Lamar Odom for next season since he performed so well during last season, but they couldn’t get a hold of him all summer and when they read that he’s been spending a lot of time with a crack pipe, they moved on. They signed Antawn Johnson instead, which means that Lamar’s time with the Clippers has come to an end. But Radar says even though Lamar isn’t a Clipper anymore, his teammates from the Clippers and his former teammates from the Lakers busted an intervention on his ass in a hotel room in L.A. on Monday. It didn’t go well and I’m guessing it’s because Candy Finnigan wasn’t there.
Some source says that Lamar was obviously high on some kind of bad shit when his teammates and sports agent Jeff Schwartz tried to talk him into rehab. The intervention lasted for 3 hours and ended with Lamar quitting that bitch. After Lamar left, Jeff Schwartz called him over and over to get him to come back to the hotel, but he wouldn’t. The source said this:
“One minute Lamar is agreeing that he needs help and 30 minutes later, he says he just needs to be left alone. This is extremely serious, but there is really nothing anyone can do to save Lamar unless he wants to save himself. Lamar was sweaty and talking very fast. His hands were shaking and he couldn’t sit still. He kept pacing in the room.”
Radar says that TMZ has it wrong about Lamar being addicted to crack, because OxyContin is his drug of choice, not crack.
TMZ also says that during his time with the Mavericks and the Lakers, Lamar was smoking Oxy and crack in various hotel rooms during out-of-town games. Hotel staff at one hotel claims that after Lamar checked out, they found burn marks in the carpet and white powder on the tables. It was as if a Lohan tornado hit the room. The Mavericks apparently knew something was going on and they didn’t want any part of it, so they cut him mid-season and paid him for a full-season.
Meanwhile, the mastermind of this whole thing, Pimp Mama Kris, went on a little staged photo-op stroll in L.A. yesterday. I’m surprised bitch didn’t wear a Just Say No t-shirt dress.
