A TMZ story that former Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom has gone missing as he is binging on crack cocaine, has sparked angry denials from his wife, Khloe Kardashian, and his agent, Jeff Schwartz.

“Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is,” Schwartz told ESPN.com.

TMZ on Sunday reported that Odom had “vanished,” prompting fears that he had gone on a drug binge.

“Sources connected to the NBA star tell us people on Lamar’s side, and on the Kardashian side have not been able to find Lamar or contact him for nearly 72 hours – and we’re told the main concern is he’s hiding out while doing crack cocaine,” TMZ reported.

Khloe Kardashian lashed out at the report on Twitter, saying it’s “really hard to sit here and listen to people to talk s— about my family! F— you and shame on you!”

TMZ later updated the report
, writing, “We spoke to a rep for Lamar who says Lamar is fine, however he would not say anything about his whereabouts.”

TMZ also reported that the Odom-Kardashian marriage is falling apart and that Kardashian threw him out of the house last week when the former NBA champion refused an intervention. Odom went into rehab last year but left after three weeks, according to the celebrity gossip website.

“Sources say Lamar’s crack use was extreme before he went to rehab, but he cleaned up his act during the basketball season that just ended,” TMZ reported. “Sources say shortly after he hung up his jersey, he started again with a bang.”

Odom played in the NBA Finals with the Lakers for three straight years, winning the championship against Orlando in 2009 and Boston in 2010. He played with the Clippers – the team that drafted him – last year. The former All-Star forward also has played with Dallas and Miami in a career stretching back to the 1999-2000 season.
