Sometimes as much as $1000...
TMZ reports that Lamar Odom spent $800 a day, sometimes as much as $1,000 a day on his crack cocaine addiction this past summer.
His addiction got worse when he left his home with Khloe Kardashian and into the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel with a friend in late May, shortly after the end of the NBA season. Odom was with his friend and seven or eight other random drug users, who came in and out during the day and night for several months straight. Odom spent $800 a day on average, but he sometimes spent more. In addition to crack he also bought other types of drugs.
While $800 of crack sounds like a lot, he did sometimes share with those around him. Drug dealers also have a tendency to charge rich customers higher prices.
Kardashian kept the addiction secret for two years but finally gave him an ultimatum: get treatment or the marriage is over. He is now in rehab.
