Lamar Odom is a man who has made several mistakes in his life, and that includes the time he stupidly blew a ridiculous amount of money one night in a club.
Odom was a guest on “In Depth with Graham Bensinger” and talked about one of his worst financial decisions he has ever made when he dropped $120K in a nightclub.
“I was in a club in Miami with my late great friend, Rasual Butler,” Odom told Bensinger. “It was Rasual’s birthday. When we go out, we like to drink, and we drank Moet Rose. And then we see this football player right in front of us. He and his guy are drinking Ace of Spades. He said to me, ‘L.O., step your game up.’ So I told the waiter that I need a hundred bottles of Moet Rose.
“I said I want them to bring ten now, and then give ten to these Puerto Rican kids. So now, I am going to assassinate the whole look that he got going on. I got the kids sitting right next to him, buying ten bottles of Moet Rose that I am about to drink with them. So that’s 20. I had this whole, little dark VIP section, and that was like 70 bottles. When I got to the 80th bottle, I told them to hand this out in the crowd and then bring the last 20 right back here.
“That is probably my worst. It probably cost like $120,000. I did it for pride — foolish pride.”
Everybody has had a night where they tried to show off a little, but to drop that amount of money and disrespect your bank account was just foolish.
Being an athlete, there is no shortage of people who have done something similar or 100x worse as we’ve seen multiple times over the years.
