‘I used a fake penis to pass a drug test in 2004’ – Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband and former NBA star, Lamar Odom has just revealed that he used a prosthetic penis filled with his trainer’s urine to pass a drugs test. This was during the 2004 Olympics.
Odom snagged a spot in the U.S. Men’s Olympic basketball team but unknown to many, had been “smoking weed every day that summer.”
In his memoir, Darkness to Light, Lamar stated he knew he could not pass the drug test and had to use a fake penis.
In the memoir exclusively obtained by PEOPLE, he said; ‘the joy of being named to the twelve-man roster quickly turned to anxiety when Olympic officials informed me that I would have to pass a drug test before officially joining the team.’
‘There was absolutely no way I was going to pass. I’d been smoking weed every day that summer. Panic set in. We started googling ‘fake penises’ and studied different ways to beat a drug test,’ he writes.
‘After an exhaustive search we ordered a giant, rubber, black c*** to arrive the next day.’
Odom continued saying he got his drug-free trainer ‘to urinate into the reservoir of the phallus, which he then hid in his balls,’ as the tester arrived at his home.
‘He handed me the rubber penis and left the bathroom as I strapped it on,’ Odom writes about his trainer.
A security official was in the bathroom with Odom to monitor him peeing into the container. s
‘I unzipped my pants and carefully slid the fake penis through the zipper hole. To get the pee to come out of the tip, I had to squeeze the shaft repeatedly,’ Odom writes.
Odom passed the test and went on to play on the U.S. National Team. He also won a bronze medal in the Olympics in 2004, a gold medal in the FIBA World Championship in 2010.
