WhileKhloé Kardashianand her family’s krew is coming to terms with husband Lamar Odom’s drug addiction, the reality TV couple must face another reality about L.O.’s behavior—that this isn’t his first encounter with drug abuse!
Earlier in his career, the NBA forward was suspended twice within for violating the NBA’s anti-drug policy.
At the time Lamar admitted to using marijuana; now, however, he is reportedly using drugs that face harsher consequences—both on and off the court—even though Lamar said in 2001 that he did not see his drug problem escalating.
“I hope everyone doesn’t pass judgment on my mistake,” he said after his first suspension. “I’ve made a couple and I may make a couple again, but hopefully they won’t be as big as this one.”
