As rumors continue to circulate as to whether or not Khloe Kardashian's marriage to Lamar Odom is on the rocks, multiple sources are indicating the couple is once again experiencing another state of turmoil. Odom has been a hot topic of discussion in recent months for his alleged extramarital activity and while he maintains his loyalty to wife Khloe - the sister of model/reality television celebrity Kim Kardashian - the NBA star's marriage remains a key talking point amongst multiple media outlets and followers of the family.

According to Daily Mail, Lamar Odom has been missing for 3 days and those closest to the NBA star have not been able to reach him. With rumors swirling that Khloe Kardashian threw her husband out of the house last Wednesday, sources close to the couple fear the real reason for the ongoing marriage trouble is the fact that Lamar may have a drug problem. With past statements indicating that Lamar's acts of indiscretion with 2 other women were the cause of marriage problems, this latest twist adds a completely different dimension to a struggling marriage.

Celebrity news outlet TMZ also reported that Odom has been battling a drug problem for 2 years and that the reason Khloe may have thrown him out of the house was because the 33-year-old two-time NBA Champion denied an offered drug intervention. Odom has also been on a serious decline as well since the basketball season came to an end, leaving his marriage in serious trouble.

"It's a really hard time for Khloe," an unnamed source said recently to People. "She's kept this secret for almost two years trying to save Lamar and their marriage. Lamar genuinely doesn't think he has a problem, it's all work hard then party hard with him until it goes off the rails. They really do love each other. But she really feels that this problem is out of control, and she's hurt that he won't get help."

This is not the first time Odom has been marred with drug complications, according to The Huffington Post. Violating an NBA drug policy on 2 separate occasions in 2001, Lamar Odom was suspended by the league after admitting to smoking marijuana.

Now that he's been reported missing and those closest to him fear he's on a serious drug binge, fans will remain interested in his whereabouts especially since his actions have a direct impact on wife Khloe Kardashian.
