Less than a month ago one of Lamar Odom’s best friends, Jamie Sangouthai, died from a flesh eating disease that he reportedly contracted “from sharing dirty needles” it’s being reported that the former LA Lakers player has relapsed back into the world of drugs.
Flash forward to the present where yet another “friend” told the magazine Life & Style that Lamar had also relapsed whilst visiting Sangouthai back in April. If you believe that “a friend” telling a magazine a story is tenuous proof at best, then know also that the same magazine obtained pictures of the men’s hotel room which showed blatant signs of drug use including traces of heroin, burnt tinfoil, and straws.
In May, a source reportedly close to Lamar also told Life & Style magazine that the former ball player was headed for Vegas where he’s goes to “regularly get high.”
Previously, Odom had been reported to be entering rehab, and has made a similar claim towards friends over his current situation, saying that he’ll be seeking treatment after they expressed worry over his eyebrow raising behavior, apparent mood swings, and slurred speech. It doesn’t seem that rehab is a likely option after yet another relapse.
Get well Lamar.
