Drugs and drama! What’s really going on with Lamar Odom?

According to TMZ, Lamar Odom had been missing for a little more than three days but now they say he isn't missing. His family thinks he may have been on a drug binge. It seems he's been struggling with this addiction for the past two years and a recent stint in rehab only lasted for three weeks.  He was able to stave off the addiction during the season while he played for the Los Angeles Clippers, but when the season was over sources say "he slipped back into using "hardcore recreational drugs." According to TMZ (via People magazine): 
....within the last few days Odom's family tried to stage an intervention, but he wouldn't have it. On Wednesday, Kardashian, 29, allegedly kicked him out of the house and he hasn't been seen since. People is also reporting that Kardashian has been struggling to help Odom for a long time. "It's a really hard time for Khloe," a source tells People. "She's kept this secret for almost two years trying to save Lamar and their marriage."
I've always thought that there was something wrong with Odom. From the moment he married Khloe Kardashian, and even before then, something just didn't seem right. The couple endured alot of criticism when they got married and his actions on Keeping Up With The Kardashians  didn't help curb people's judgements. Khloe is sick of it and took to Twitter to voice her frustration:
 
Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk shit about my family! Fuck you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this shit!
Well tell us how you really feel!! I would say social media isn't place you need to be right now, and if you don't like what people are saying, this response is the wrong one. In fact the best thing to say may be nothing at all.  In the social media space, fans--not celebrities rule. 
Sources say that Khloe is really hurt by his latest behavior:
"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," another insider adds. "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."
If this is true, then Lamar Odom really needs help.  Getting over addiction is more than a notion and going through it in a public manner makes it even twice as hard. Whatever is going on, I hope he gets the help he needs. 
In the meantime, his wife needs to stay out of social media.
