Lamar Odom was just having fun.
The former NBA star said his strange Instagram video — in which he appears as “Black Jesus” — was just meant to promote his Twitch account. Instead, according to Odom, fans were convinced he was having issues with drugs again.
“Lighten up DAMN ~ I can’t have fun without being accused of being high or out my mind??” Odom captioned a response video on Instagram.
“If you know me you know I play all day, life is too short to stay so serious, Covid taught us that.”
The initial video that caused worry showed Odom “turning water into wine” while sporting a long-haired wig.
Odom has been battling ex-fiancee Sabrina Parr on Instagram, claiming last week that Parr was holding his social media accounts hostage.
Odom, 41, had battled cocaine addiction in the past and nearly died during a 2015 incident at a Nevada brothel.
“Black Jesus just my alter ego and I am just trying to bless y’all in 2K and Madden on Twitch,” Odom said in the video.
