Lamar Odom has been found, even though he was never really lost. The former NBA Sixth Man of the Year is holed up in a Los Angeles hotel. Allegedly, friends are trying to convince him to seek help for a substance abuse problem.
Free-agent forward Lamar Odom is in a Los Angeles hotel, where friends are trying to get him help for an unspecified drug problem, a source told ESPN on Monday.
The information comes after Odom’s agent refuted a TMZ report Sunday that his client had been missing for 72 hours after a dispute with his wife, Khloe Kardashian.
Agent Jeff Schwartz would not reveal Odom’s whereabouts, telling ESPN.com’s Marc Stein earlier Monday: “Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is.”
Odom was reportedly kicked out of the home he shared with wife Khloe Kardashian last Wednesday (August 21) after he refused to go to rehab after an intervention. TMZ reported that crack cocaine is the drug Odom is addicted to.
Despite all these shenanigans, Odom’s reps say he plans to play in the NBA this upcoming season. Good luck with that, sir.
