Rumors have been swirling since Sunday that Lamar Odom has been missing for at least three days, but a rep for the basketball player says he is fine according to TMZ. The source did not state his whereabouts.

The website said that sources close to his family have been concerned that the former NBA player has been using drugs since his wife Khloe Kardashian "threw him out" of their house Wednesday. 

Khloe Kardashian spoke out on all the negative talk surrounding her husband on Twitter Sunday afternoon. "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s--t about my family! F--k you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this s--t!," she wrote

TMZ released a series of reports stating that Odom has been battling an addiction to crack cocaine for at least two years. The site states that Odom went to rehab a year ago in San Diego, California, but quit the program after three weeks.

The site also said this morning that his wife has declared separation from Odom. Odom's drug use and unwillingness to get help is being cited as the cause for the separation. There has been no official report of either side contacting a divorce lawyer.
