The past few months have definitely been rocky for Lamar Odom … with cheating scandals, divorce rumors, claims of drug abuse, and now he’s missing?! Here are the 5 Fast Facts surrounding Odom’s “disappearance”.
1. Lamar’s Loved Ones Fear He’s Off on a Drug Bender

According to the New York Post, Lamar Odom has not been seen for three days and those close to the basketball/reality star fear that he’s on a drug binge. Apparently, no one has been able to contact Lamar for 72 hours.
2. It Was Reported that Lamar Is a Crack Cocaine Addict
Sadly, news broke yesterday on TMZ that Lamar Odom has struggled with a drug problem for the last two years. Wife Khloe Kardashian supposedly insisted that husband Lamar go to rehab last August. Fortunately, Lamar agreed, but left the San Diego facility after only three weeks. It’s rumored that Khloe had hired a private investigator to stake out the facility in case Lamar tried to leave even earlier. TMZ states:
Sources say Lamar’s crack use was extreme before he went to rehab, but he cleaned up his act during the basketball season that just ended. Sources say shortly after he hung up his jersey, he started again with a bang.
In the past, Lamar has admitted to smoking marijuana, but the thought of crack cocaine is truly upsetting.
3. Lamar Bolted After an Intervention
Allegedly, Khloe, along with her family, tried to stage an intervention for Lamar and he refused. Supposedly, Lamar doesn’t believe he has a problem. A source told People that:
Lamar genuinely doesn’t think he has a problem – it’s all ‘work hard then party hard’ with him until it goes off the rails. They really do love each other. But she really feels that this problem is out of control, and she’s hurt that he won’t get help.
4. Wife Khloe Is at Her Wits End
Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk shit about my family! Fuck you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this shit!
