Lamar Odom has been dealing with a crack cocaine addiction for the last two years, according to TMZ.
The NBA star checked himself into a rehab faculty last year and stayed for three weeks, but sources say his drug use has picked back up and it’s affecting his marriage with Khloe Kardashian Odom.
As TMZ reported earlier, Khloe kicked Lamar out of the house last week for rejecting an attempted family intervention. As of this writing, he’s been missing for 72 hours and loved ones are afraid he may be on a possible cocaine binge.
People magazine reports:
Reps for Odom and the Clippers have not returned PEOPLE’s multiple requests for comment. A rep for Kardashian Odom declined to comment.
A source close to the couple tells PEOPLE that Karshadian Odom has been struggling to help her husband. “It’s a really hard time for Khloé,” the source says. “She’s kept this secret for almost two years trying to save Lamar and their marriage.”
The 29-year-old “recently came clean and [her family] has been trying to help since,” the source says.
Another source who has known Odom for years says the couple have clashed over his partying: “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.”
We hope Lamar gets the help he needs.
