NBA player Lamar Odom has been in a downward spiral lately, that includes being arrested for a DUI last week. It turns out that Odom’s drug dealer was the one to bail Odom out of jail after he was arrested.

From Radar Online:

Khloe Kardashian, nor anyone of her relatives, bailed her husband Lamar Odom out of jail after he was arrested for a DUI last week, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned, as it was actually his drug dealer who answered the call to spring the troubled basketball player out of the custody of the LAPD’s Van Nuys jail facility.

Lamar’s drug dealer — a different person than the one that opened up to us this week about the hoopster’s vices — “posted to $15,000 bail to get him out of jail last Friday morning, after being arrested for a DUI,” a source close to the Kardashian family told us. “The sad thing is that Lamar didn’t call Khloe to bail him out.

“Instead, Lamar opted to call his drug dealer. Khloe found about his arrest by reading about it in the press, and was stunned.”

Lamar Odom has checked himself into rehab and is seeking treatment. Your drug dealer bailing you out of jail is a pretty bad sign that you might have a problem.
