We broke the story ... Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian's marriage problems go way deeper than cheating -- it's really about his deep addiction to drugs. Khloe kept his secret for years -- but now that she's kicked him out ... will she take him back? Should she?

Plus, Miley Cyrus managed to upstaged everyone at the VMAs ... by groping Robin Thicke and grinding on everything in sight. She's the hot topic today, but for the right reason?

And ... Paula Deen gets dissed by 2 companies selling tix to a food expo ... even though she's the headliner!! Isn't it time to give her a second chance?

TMZ is like a restaurant that has a great business with great food. So then they decide to expand with more tables and a bigger menu. Next thing you know the service goes down, the food quality goes down. Everybody quits coming to eat and the owner goes broke.

Under the terms of the agreement between the NBA and the players association, the league drug testing policy is as follows:

"All players are subject to four (4) random tests each season (from October 1 to June 30). All players are also subject to two (2) random tests each off-season (from July 1 to September 30). All such tests are scheduled and conducted by an independent, third-party entity and are without prior notice to the player. The NBA and the NBPA are not involved in the scheduling of any tests or the selection of players for testing."

Testing is year-round. Kris and Harvey should have read up on the salient details before claiming Lamar only used in the off-season.

Should have kept the show at 1:30 pacific. :P And ENOUGH with the Kardashian stories! Really I mean ffs...your never ending coverage of that family makes me wonder if people are right when they accuse TMZ of being in the Kardashian's pocket.

'm still waiting to see some actual proof that Lamar is using crack. I'm not saying he's clean, but without some kind of evidence it's sure looking like character assassination. All we're getting is a series of claims from unnamed sources - or maybe a single source with an ax to grind.

Harvey, a few days ago on TMZ LIE when you and Chucky were downplaying Khloe/Lamar divorce rumors YOU SAID "everyone was scoffing at the rumors". The both of you were far from "believable"
-
TODAY you are "all over" the divorce/drug abuse rumors. Why dont you invite Kris Jenner or Khloe to join you TMZ Live to openly discuss the drug abuse?
.
Does TMZ fear a lawsuit should the allegation be proven wrong?

Lamar Odom had a "choose the Red or Blue pill" scenario, between Khloe and Crack... he chose right, i.e. crack

Lamar Odom should lawyer up and sue TMZ for slander and defamation of character for the claims of crack addiction.
TMZ cannot say they're journalists and are not protected by Law.
