Lamar Odom Goes Missing While Crack Addiction Rumors Run WildBy: Amanda Crum - August 26, 2013
Lamar Odom reportedly went missing for over 72 hours after wife Khloe threw him out of the house last week due to his drug habits.
Odom, who has been in the headlines quite a bit lately due to a cheating scandal, hadn’t contacted his family at all over the weekend according to TMZ, and the Kardashians were worried he might have gone off on a bender. The basketball player is now a free agent and has reportedly suffered through a crack addiction for years. He briefly spent time in a rehab facility last year but left after just a few weeks.
Odom’s rep has clarified that their client is okay, but no one has commented on his whereabouts or what he’s been doing for the last few days. The incident comes just days after a young lawyer, Polina Polonsky, claimed to have had a sexual relationship with Odom as recently as June and that Khloe busted them in the act at a hotel.
“I was under the impression that he had left Khloe … he acted completely available and we definitely had a mutual attraction,” Polonsky said. “After we had sex, Lamar stayed the night with me; the next day we went back to the Roosevelt. I stayed there with him for the next couple of nights.”
Polonsky said that Khloe confronted her and that now she’s scared for her safety.
“I told her to leave, but she refused. I called the front desk and asked them to call the police because I was so scared, but no one ever came,” she said. “While Khloe was screaming outside the door, Lamar was calling people to come and get her. She was out of control. The whole scene was so frightening — and I couldn’t understand why we were hiding, because he made it clear that he didn’t want to be with her! She’s investigated my loved ones, and she personally tried to attack me. I can’t even go home, because I’m scared that something bad will happen. I want my story to be made public.”
Khloe reportedly held an intervention for Odom on Wednesday, which led to a confrontation. He hasn’t been seen or heard from since Friday.
