Khloé Kardashian’s husband, Lamar Odom, is finally speaking out about those pesky crackhead accusations against him. A TMZ cameraman caught the basketball player on his way to his car in L.A. and asked, “Do you have a drug problem?”

“No,” said Odom. He also said he doesn’t need rehab, despite an ex-roommate claiming she saw him use the drug.

But those TMZ people are thorough. They also caught Odom leaving a pharmacy in the Valley with a bag of Chore Boy steel wool pads, which just so happen to be used in makeshift crack pipes. They are, of course, also used to remove caked-on food from dishes and pans, so this is not to say that he is a drug abuser.

Lamar probably just owns a dishwasher without a “pot-scrubber” function.
