Lamar Odom, spotted outside a restaurant Tuesday night, spoke briefly about reports of drug and marital problems that have followed him and intensified over the last few weeks.

The appearance was a rare one and the comments were his first since reports of drug use, a strained relationship with wife Khloe Kardashian and an arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence Aug. 30.

Odom was leaving Teru Sushi in Studio City when a camera crew spotted him and, via TMZ, he told them, “How do I look?” when asked how he is doing. As for reports that he has a drug problem, he replied, “Nah.”

He was relaxed and laughing as he walked to a car. As for his marriage, he said, “Of course” and laughed when asked if he’d spoken to Khloe Kardashian. “That’s my wife. Of course.”

Odom, a free agent, was asked what team he’d like to play for this fall and he replied, “Anybody that’s a fan.”
