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.

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?

He saw how long it took Kris Humphries to get away from the Kardashians and he's not going to let it happen to him!

TMZ, stop being a sock puppet for Kris Jenner and her hos.

I think this drug **** is just the Kardashians taking him down for daring to exit the family. I only believe a very small portion of it: I believe that he uses, but the rest of the hysteria and drama is Kardashian-generated public relations revenge.

If I had friens and family like Lamar, I would leave too. These people have exposed a private matter to the tabloids. These "friends and family" should be ashamed of their behavior. Lamar, stay away from these evil gypsies.

I'd go in to hiding also, if I were him. The Kardashians are effectively running one hell of a smear campaign. He's probably being hounded by every media outlet out there. If does have a drug abuse issue, releasing that information to the public wasn't actually going to help matters any. The Kardashian camp was sure to say that he's been doing drugs for 2 years, most recently saying that he started up again "shortly before hanging up his jersey" - explicitly implying that he was doing drugs before his season officially ended. If his career wasn't already on the line, is sure is now.

Maybe he's taking a break from that famewhore family he married into? God knows anyone would need a break from those skanks.

Why worry, he is a grown man, choosing his way of life. If he wants to die doing drugs so be it. That is his choosing. Most druggies die at some point in their lives, Maybe it is his time now.

You threw him out so you don't really have the right to be concerned as to where the hell he is. Dumb ass...

No such thing as an "occasional" crack/cocaine user. Either you do it full time or You don't do it at all. There's no taking breaks. This sounds like Some BS. He got fed up with the K Klan, this is just their excuse as to why he fled..

Change the will and life insurance to leave 100% to your children. Lamar. That way, they have no reason to find you dead.

Khloe ate him. She was super hungry. She confused Lamar for a giant chocolate bar.

Let's hope that the humiliating first page attacks that TMZ has been running for the past two days (thanks to PMK I am sure) didn't make this man do anything desperate.

Maybe he's holed up with Bruce to get away from Mama Ten Percent.
