lamar odom reappears drugs crack khloe kardashian Lamar Odom reappears as new reports of drug use surfaceIt’s been a hard few days for Lamar Odom and wife Khloe Kardashian. The NBA star reportedly disappeared for several days and there were rumors of a drug-fueled binge. While a rep for Odom said that he was fine, Lamar still did not surface until late Monday afternoon (Aug. 26).

TMZ has pictures of Odom driving his SUV near the home he shares with wife Khloe in the San Fernando Valley. Meanwhile, the site also has a report from Westin hotel employees in Memphis saying that when Odom was in town with the Dallas Mavericks playing the Memphis Grizzlies, his hotel room had evidence of drug use when Odom vacated the room.

Further Westin hotel workers in other cities have also made such claims from when Odom was playing for the Lakers.

Odom was rather abruptly cut from the Dallas Mavericks in March 2012, with the coach and owner talking about Odom doing “rehab” with the D-league team in order to “get back in shape.” TMZ is now alleging that that incident stemmed not from being out of shape but from Odom’s continued drug use.

TMZ is also alleging that Odom has escalated his drug problem to crack-cocaine.

We don’t know how much of that is true, but it does seem like there are some serious problems with Lamar and Khloe, as alleged mistresses have also been coming out of the woodwork lately. We hope they can get the help that they need.
