Lamar Odom is alleged to have a drug problem that is contributing to a crisis in his marriage to socialite and TV personality Khloe Kardashian, according to reports.

And now the Kardashian clan and Odom's friends have been unable to find him or contact him for the last three days, fuelling fears that he is on a drug binge.

The veteran NBA player, currently unsigned after playing with the Los Angeles Clippers last season, is either using crack cocaine or is abusing OxyContin and Ambien.

Sources tell TMZ that Odom has allegedly been using crack for the past two years, and went to a rehab facility a year ago before leaving after three weeks of treatment.

Odom was reportedly thrown out of the couple's home last Wednesday after rejecting an intervention bid by Kardashian's family.

Meanwhile, Kardashian family members fear the 33-year-old is hooked on OxyContin and Ambien, according to another report. OxyContin is a prescription painkiller, while Ambien is used to treat insomnia.

"Lamar has lost a ton of weight in the last few months which triggered a lot of the concern amongst the family," one source told Radar Online.

Last month, Odom suffered a meltdown with paparazzi and went on a rampage in Los Angeles following a dispute with a photographer.

He was caught on tape rifling through the back seat of the photog's car, throwing his camera and other equipment on the ground. He then threatened another celebrity snapper with a tripod.

Odom was not charged over the incident and reportedly has agreed to pay for the broken equipment.
