Lamar Odom Agent Disputes Missing Persons Report, Mum on Drugs

by at .  Updated at . Comments

The agent for Lamar Odom has spoken out for the first time since rumors of his client's drug problems hit the Internet.

Speaking to ESPN, Jeff Schwartz did not reveal just where Odom is hiding out, but claims the free agent power forward never vanished and "his wife knows exactly where he is."

The report does state, however, friends are trying to assist the former Clippers and Lakers star with substance abuse issues, while Schwartz would only add that "playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar's plans."

Sources have said Khloe Kardashian is desperate to save Odom, focusing more on his well-being these days than the state of their failing marriage.

A new TMZ report, meanwhile, goes back to Odom's days on the Dallas Mavericks (who cut the disappointing star prior to the end of the season).

The celebrity news site alleges Lamar was smoking Oxycontin and cocaine, and reportedly left evidence of this dangerous habit inside a hotel room in Memphis.

Khloe and Lamar are separated at the moment, with chatter of a divorce running rampant amidst drug abuse rumors - and cheating claims - against the latter.

Kardashian has said little publicly regarding talk that her husband has been unfaithful and/or is hooked on crack cocaine, except to lash out a couple times on Twitter.

Most recently, she wrote: "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk sh-t about my family! F-ck you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this sh-t!"
