Lamar Odom's life is a mess and he's been missing for the last three days since his wife, Khloe Kardashian, threw him out of the house. Odom is addicted to drugs by his own admission and after a failed intervention with Khloe and her family last week, Lamar refused rehab, so Khloe told him to pack his bags and leave, according to Sports Illustrated on Aug. 25.
Khloe loves Lamar and will do anything within her power to help him, but when he's not interested in helping himself, there's nothing more she, or anyone else can do. Lamar went to rehab last August, but he went there under protest. Khloe hired private investigators to stand guard at the rehab 24/7 in case Lamar jumped ship. She also came to see him many times to try and get him to stick out, but he left after three weeks.
Today no one knows where Lamar is and Khloe and her family fear that he is on a bender somewhere. Lamar's drug of choice is crack cocaine, which often leaves you not caring about anything else but where you can get your next fix of the drug. Khloe is beside herself with worry about her husband, whose career was marred by drug use.
This drug abuse has been in Lamar's lifestyle for a long time, as back in 2001, he was suspended by the Clippers twice in the span of eight months for drug use. This was during his first season with the team.
Earlier this month the Clippers showed some interest in signing Lamar back into contract, but it looks like his latest drug problem, and now his disappearance, may work against any interest they initially had. With all the fame and money Khloe Kardashian is surrounded with, the one thing that means more to her than anything has always been her marriage to Odom. She has some big problems with her husband that she's dealing with today.
