After reports surfaced over the weekend claiming that Lamar is hooked on drugs (specifically crack, although some reports have also mentioned painkiller Oxycontin and sleep aid Ambien), the basketball star has allegedly gone missing, causing a great deal of concern to his friends and family.
TMZ reports that, as of Sunday, none of Lamar’s friends or family members had been able to reach him for three full days, nor did they know where he was spending his time.
Sources close to the family says that Lamar’s inner circle is worried that he could be holed up somewhere, binging on drugs. Apparently, nobody is entertaining the possibility that a man with multiple alleged mistresses could be hanging out, doing the things men like to do with their mistresses, but that’s neither here nor there.
Lamar’s rep claims that his client is A-OK and won’t disclose his whereabouts, but nobody’s going to keep paying the publicist who tells TMZ, “My client is somewhere on Skid Row trying to score.”
According to TMZ sources, Lamar has been waging a battle against his addiction for two years now and has attempted to kick at least once in the past. Just last year, Khloe Kardashian allegedly convinced Lamar to enter treatment, although he left after less than a month. His current MIA status is reportedly a reaction to Khloe kicking him out of their shared home following a failed intervention.
We hope this family gets whatever kind of help they need soon.
