Former NBA star Lamar Odom revealed he used a prosthetic penis filled with his trainer’s urine to pass a drugs test for the Olympics as he knew he wouldn’t pass due to his cannabis use.
Odom, 39, who was married to Khloe Kardashian, was offered a spot on the U.S. Men’s Olympic basketball team but had to come up with a way of passing a drug test.
According to his new memoir, Darkness to Light, which was obtained exclusively by PEOPLE, the New Yorker said he was using drugs in 2004.
He claimed knew that he wouldn’t pass an official test, which would disqualify him from competing at the Olympics in Athens, Greece.
He wrote that ‘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.’
Odom claimed that he got a call from USA Basketball that a drug tester would be visiting his house to administer the screening.
