By Daily Mail Reporter

|

Lamar Odom is reported to have owed drug dealers tens of thousands of dollars before he left for Spain to play in the European basketball league.

A new report by TMZ claims that the 34-year-old had extensive debts that he failed to pay resulting in his alleged dealers threatening to break into his marital home with Khloe Kardashian to steal what they were owed.

Sources told the website that Lamar was over $65,000 deep with at least two heavy suppliers as late as September last year.

Insiders claim the former NBA star, whose light has recently faded, owed $15,000 to one dealer and another $40,000 to a different supplier.

He allegedly still owed tens of thousands of dollars before leaving for Spain in February.

He is said to have refused to pay for various reasons, including that the drugs he was sold were 'wack' or not of appropriate quality.

Police are said to still be investigating and have not revealed any leads in the case.

Although, reports show that there were no signs of forced entry.

Meanwhile, Kourtney Kardashian has reportedly become the latest member of her famous family to be targeted by thieves.

The reality TV star had $50,000 in cash taken from the Calabasas home she shares with Scott Disick and two children last month, TMZ has alleged.

Police are linking the theft with another similar incident which saw $250,000 worth of jewellery stolen from her sister Khloe's Tarzana mansion, according to the website.

Sources told TMZ the money was stolen from inside Kourtney's home, following a public appearance that paid her in cash.

Kourtney reportedly believes it was an inside job after she left the money in a safe place for a few days.

Due to timing and the fact that the sisters' deal with so many of the same people, police allegedly believe the 'two thefts are connected'.

Those investigating reportedly plan to question those who had access to Kourtney's house,while focusing on people who also had access to Khloe's pad.

The latter burglary was only discovered on Monday when the reality star went with mother Kris Jenner back to the sprawling spread - which has been empty for one month - to clean it out for new owner Kaley Cuoco.
