TMZ is reporting that Lamar Odom has been missing for three days. According to the site, Khloe Kardashian’s husband vanished suddenly and his family believes he may be on a drug binge. Allegedly, no one has been able to contact him for nearly 72 hours.
TMZ first reported that multiple sources familiar with the situation said Odom, 33 has been facing a drug problem for two years. Reportedly, he went to a rehab facility in San Diego last August, but left after three weeks. The site also reports that Odom stayed once he left treatment and was able to play well for the Los Angeles Clippers this past season. But once the season was over, insiders say he slipped back into using “hardcore recreational drugs.”
Sources tell TMZ that 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 Kardashians have been trying to help Lamar 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.”
“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.”
This is not the first time Odom has faced drug accusations. He was suspended in 2001 when he violated NBA drug policy twice in eight months, admitting to smoking marijuana.
I can’t believe it’s been 12 years already since Aaliyah left this earth. I will never forget this day as I was on family vacation with my mom in Virginia Beach and woke up to the devastating news. Mind you I was and still am her biggest fan, and had dreams of working with her one day. I was absolutely in love with this woman!!!! It crushed my heart to know that such an amazing and uprising artist life had ended so suddenly, it’s tragic for anybody who loses their life. However, I admired her style, laid back appeal, and if you ask me she had the original swag!! Til this day I still listen to one of my all-time favorite CD’s “Aaliyah” which was her most personal, and defining album. This most is dedicated to the one and only with a few of my favorite pics and videos!!! ENJOY!!!!!

Another day, another celebrity being jailed for domestic violence, this time actor Marcus Paulk, from “Moesha” fame.
Via TMZ Reports:
“Moesha” star Marcus T. Paulk — who played the little brother Myles on the show — has just turned himself in to authorities after allegedly putting his girlfriend in the hospital, law enforcement sources tell TMZ.
According to sources, Paulk surrendered at an L.A. jail Thursday afternoon …and he was subsequently placed under arrest.
The alleged victim — a singer named Andi Roxx — tells us, it all started at a nightclub in Beverly Hills called Confidential … she and Paulk had gotten into a verbal argument because she wasn’t paying him enough attention.
When they went home, Roxx says the fight got physical and Paulk punched her in the chin. She says she swung back and busted open his lip, so he punched her again in the stomach, and told her to get her stuff and get out. She says he also kicked her in the stomach.
The next morning, Roxx says she went to the hospital with internal injuries. Law enforcement sources say police responded to the hospital soon after, where Roxx told them what happened.
Police later made contact with Paulk himself and his attorney arranged for Paulk to turn himself in today. We’re told the actor is currently being booked.
Calls to Paulk’s reps were not returned.

While over at Victoria Secret offices, I noticed Chanel Iman was absent from the VS Angels lineup (10 supermodels). I mentioned it to several of the employees and was told “Chanel was dropped, her contract was not renewed for 2013”.
I also ask if Chanel would be in the Victoria Secret “Pink” lineup and was told “No”.

2 Chainz and 10-members of his entourage were booked into the Oklahoma County Jail after they refused to allow the police to search their tour bus. After his performance was over performing with Lil Wayne, T.I. and Future for their America’s Most Wanted Tour, his bus was pulled over for a busted headlight, but of course after further probing cops believed some illegal drug activity was going on.
Oklahoma City Police Department Sergeant Jennifer Wardlow told Radio.com,
“We stopped the bus about midnight and it was near I-40 and Meridian,”while the investigation was still underway. The reason for traffic stop was it looks like there was a broken taillight. When officers went up to bus and made contact with the driver, there was evidence of drug usage going on the bus. We’re not getting into specifics of what it was, but it was apparent to the officers that there was drug use going on the bus. The driver was taken into custody without any problem. When he got out and shut the door, it locked so the officers couldn’t get into the tour bus.
“The decision was made to tow the bus to our police training facility and obtain a warrant. It was about 8 a.m. Oklahoma time when they were able to get a warrant, and it was at that time that all the people who were on the bus came off.”

It was reported last week that former B2K member Raz-B was on life support after being hit in the head with a bottle during a nightclub brawl in China. But as it turns out it was all a hoax.
In a statement to CNN, Raz-B’s manager Elayne Rivers said the B2K singer’s injuries were not serious. “The comments about Raz being in a coma did not come from his official representative,” said Rivers.
According to the original story, the 28-year-old was performing at a club near Shanghai on Thursday and was smashed in the face with a glass bottle while trying to break up a fight that erupted in the crowd. He suffered a gash in his lip and received medical attention, but did not wake up the next day.
A woman named Toy Jones, who acted as his publicist, sent the story to media outlets including TMZ and CNN. But several hours later, she told CNN that the singer had miraculously recovered from the coma and would be released from the hospital.
The original statement reads: “Doctor says Numerous Brain scans showed that Raz’s entire cortex- the parts of the brain that give us consciousness, thought, Memory and understanding is now functioning. Doctors say its a miracle and told hisfamily that he stands a strong chance of survival and no signs of being brain dead for the rest of his life against all odds,Raz woke up this morning and is in stable conditionWe ask the the fans and media respect our family’s privacy.”
Jones claims that she was hired by Raz-B’s family and was told to spread the news. Hundreds of media outlets worldwide reported the fabricated story.
The singer’s brother, Ricky Romance, told CNN that he too had been fooled by the erroneous reports.
“I was unfortunately unable to contact my brother at the time and then panicked,” said Romance. “I then alerted as many people of this information hoping to gather facts… Since the source that gave me this information was what I thought to be legitimately reliable I didn’t question I just believed. I apologize if I seem like I jumped to conclusions but a coma is a serious situation and it was concerning my brother whom is my best friend as well. I sincerely apologize for the confusion I caused if that is the case.”
