The problems in the celebrity marriage of Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian were triggered by Odom's abuse of hardcore drugs, according to a report. TMZ reports that Odom has had a drug problem for two years. The outlet says Odom's drug problem got so bad last year, Khloe pressured him to go to rehab. She reportedly had private investigators stand security outside the facility to make sure he didn't leave. Odom supposedly left rehab after three weeks last August and has not been back. According to the report, Odom stayed clean last NBA season, which he spent with the Los Angeles Clippers.....

It's TMZ, I'll believe it when a more credible source comes out.

If its on TMZ it's true. I work on a television show and everything they report is on the money. It's actually amazing.

Well, if he's on hard drugs, then say goodbye to the Clippers signing him, let alone anyone else in the NBA.

Time to trade for Pekovic lol.

You guys are fast! Just saw this, admittedly courtesy of my fianc, but wow. You know what, I believe it.

Sure it sucks to get traded. But to go from 6th man of the year to literally one of the worst players in the NBA, that's not just a broken heart. For christ's sakes he was making 8mil per year. Guys get traded every day, they don't completely fall apart.

He was better for us but not much. After a year on something (my guess is vics/oxy) you get accustomed, start to be a functioning adict. Makes perfect sense actually.

Think about how he talks in interviews, how his eyes look. He's droopy eyed all the time. Dude is stoned.

Forget it! Cannot sign this guy. He's done in the league if this is true. Another guy maybe can come back, ole Lam Lam does not have the intestinal fortitude. Plus they'll just bring him on the show and turn this into the saga of next season. He'll make 5 times what we're offering to televise his "recovery".

Weed is one thing, drugs is another. I smoke weed every day when I travel to Holland, but I would not touch cocaine or heroine or some **** like that!

They would not bother writing an article if it's about weed. You don't go to rehab for weed.

the drug thing makes sense,as the dude said. Wish you the best, lamar, and I hope you recover soon. Take all the time you need.

He has never failed a league drug test that they take 5 times per season, so I just don't know if this is true.

Sometimes I feel TMZ is just throwing stuff out about Lamar because of the Camera incident! This is just a way of ruining his career without pressing charges and sending him to jail! The only....

Define hard core drugs, and I bet she says pot and pain killers (or some type of HGH to recover in the off season).

You do not become a hard core addict,stop for 10 months, start up again, then stop again.

The Kartrashians need to leave this planet and go somewhere else.

As much as I hate tmz, everything they write is true. They are also starting a sports site. Within 2 years everyone will be going there for sports gossip

I've worked with drug addicts and have had family with drug problems. It happens all the time. Look at a lot of actors who relapse and get clean etc.

If I remember he was suspended for pot. This may sound trivial but I'm sure lots of players smoke pot but a they're discrete. He probably was being public. Alcohol should be considered a hard drug. If he were using heroin or meth it should be pretty obvious.

Most likely prescription drugs a la House, or cocaine. Unless he was snorting pure heroin he's have tracks.

TMZ is reporting Lamar Odom has vanished and hasn't been seen in 3 days. Family fears he's on a cocaine binge. This is getting out of hand.

Pretty sad, who knows what's up with this guy and how much of all of this is true. Odom seemed better than this from the shows he was in, and overall. But, just goes to show you that there are demons in everyone's closets. Let's hope he gets clean and stays that way and can live out a long and happy life. Otherwise he's bound to end up another athlete/celebrity that dies from a reckless lifestyle.

Sad news- hopefully Lamar Odom can get his life back together and eventually make a return back to the court.

Reports say he is on crack cocaine, which is basically for the unhappy and depressed. I guess he did look a bit depressed last season in terms of his game, but who would have thought. He needs his family or they will soon find him dead on the street somewhere in LA. I must say it is the Lakers, who did that to him with the trade - maybe he took things a bit too personal back then!

Lamar has had a very tough life. Before anyone says "he's a millionaire!!!" use your brains for a second. We're all exponentially richer than most people in other countries, and still have things to complain about and have "tough lives". Money can't cure everything. Sure he can have his bills paid and his house cleaned and what not. But all in all, if he has problems in his life emotionally, there's not much money can do.

Losing a parent is very tough, then he lost a baby, then his cab driver hit and killed a pedestrian. These are all very tough things to go through no matter how much money you have. I remember when my grandma passed away, I would have given my whole house, my car, and all my belongings just to bring her back. When you get hurt emotionally, money means absolutely nothing.

At this point Jamison is just another roster space. The bigger factors will be what improvements Doc Rivers can make on players like Blake, Redick, and company. I have a feeling that Doc Rivers will make our starters much better

The Lakers and Odom are a perfect fit. Both are washed up and done.

well I know one thing his "best friend" Jaime has a huge drug problem. and when your best friend is a huge drug addicted its hard to believe you don't have some bad habits yourself.

I'm pretty sure the tweet is saying Lamar's contact is in NY, not Lamar. Lamar is still missing.

Wish him the best, but would rather avoid the problems.

I don't have too much pity we are subject to the consequences of our own decisions. There's people that get in to stuff when they don't have any other choice (stealing out of need, gang related, etc...) developed from a tough situation. He may of had that at one point in his life, but look at tough juice who had so many run ins with the law, he got past it as well as so many other people; why not Lamar?

Does this make anyone else wonder about the time he said other players weren't listening to his advise? If I saw a guy that is having trouble keeping his life together, I would have trouble listening to him either.

He was clean during his time with the Clippers. According to the timeline, he declined to be part of Team USA cause he was going to rehab. I think he used during the remainder of the off-season but came in clean for the season.

I guess he waited for the season to end before going on his next run. I think the players weren't listening for their own personal reasons. They weren't listening to CP3 either.

I'm just saying he seems to have a lot of issues, whether it is conditioning, marital (which I wouldn't hold against him unless they are obviously self inflicted and I don't know if that is the case), drugs, and I would assume there are other issues. I have friends in similar situations and they get it together for short periods, we try to help when we can, but eventually only get involved when they ask for help because you get tired of resulting issues. None of these friends would have a good chance on having me listen to much of any advise they have for me regarding most things.

In the end we don't really know how long it's been an issue, even though it might have been covered during the season or he was as clean as a whistle, but if you are aware of these issues it would be hard taking him seriously on other subjects if you still see warning signs.

All of this really takes a lot of assuming on our parts, and you know what they say what happens when you assume. I would rather just keep my distance if there is a 50/50 chance of it becoming an issue.

I went to UNLV when he was recruited there, and his former roommate Greedy Daniels was quoted in the paper saying Lamar had a "$600 a day hooker habit."
