Drug rumors surround Odom


Amid speculation that Khloe Kardashian Odom and Lamar Odom are having marital issues, Odom is now under fire from reports that claim he has been abusing drugs, People.com reports..

In the first report over the weekend, unnamed sources told TMZ that Odom, 32, has been using "hard-core recreational drugs" for the past two years and went to rehab last August. The report claims Odom stayed clean for the duration of the basketball season but started using again when his run with the Clippers ended.

TMZ also reported Sunday that Odom had not been heard from for several days and his family fears the worst — that he’s on a crack cocaine binge.

Reps for Odom and the Clippers have not returned People’s multiple requests for comment. A rep for Kardashian Odom declined to comment.
