Lamar Odom

Missing

Family & Friends Worried

EXCLUSIVE

0825-lamar-odom-tmz
Lamar Odom has vanished and everyone in his life fears the worst -- that he's off somewhere on a drug binge ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the NBA star tell us people on Lamar's side, and on the Kardashian side have not been able to find Lamar or contact him for nearly 72 hours -- and we're told the main concern is he's hiding out while doing crack cocaine.

As TMZ first reported ... Khloe Kardashian threw him out of the house Wednesday after attempting an intervention which Lamar squarely rejected.

We've already told you Lamar's been battling addiction for at least 2 years -- and even reluctantly agreed to go to rehab in San Diego a year ago ... although he bailed after 3 weeks.

Our sources tell us Lamar has gone off the hinges since basketball season ended and he became a free agent.

We're told his drug addiction is the core reason why his marriage to Khloe has fallen apart.

Short story ... everyone's worried.

3:00 PM PST: We spoke to a rep for Lamar who says Lamar is fine, however he would not say anything about his whereabouts.

I guess like most white trash,,she has to learn the hard way, when you lay down with dogs,,you wake with fleas. What is the fascination with black thugs?

"everyone in his life fears the worst "

That is the WORST? I was thinking suicide would be a little bit worse than drugs.

Get off his back and he just might pop out of the hole he's been hiding in. I'd disappear too if I had the K-Clan AND TMZ stalking me. The man is not on crack. Nobody is a recreational crack user. I feel sorry for the poor guy. And Khloe, she's an ok gal in a effed up family dominated by a woman who will never be mother of the year. On the other hand, this womans children and grandchildren will never lack for anything.

...and I'm sure blasting his personal business to millions of People worldwide will really help his obviously over stressed mind.

That's why their marriage fell apart? It's really sad how this 'family' can ruin those they 'love' in the press. Even if he was on pills, which makes sense as his restlessness and stress were shown on many episodes, why go to the press (K family source) and put him on blast? What good would sending someone who may or may not be dependent on pills out onto front street to be ridiculed and permanently damage his career and reputation? False spin or reality, it's sick that they are going to outlets to broadcast his business. He's a grown man, ever heard of that K Klan??

WTF do you expect when you give someone who is not well an ultimatum then turn your back on them because they don't comply with your demand, poor bastard obviously doesn't have anyone who truly loves him.

Not buying this. Smells like a PR story put out by the Large-assigns to gain sympathy for poor Khloe.

I don't know why he would want to go in to hiding. You've done nothing but publish articles about how he is an f'ed up druggie the last couple of days. Isn't this what you want?
