Normally The Juice* ignores the saga of Khloe Kardashian and her free-agent husband Lamar Odom, but SportsTalk doesn't care about this, so we'll share: Apparently Odom hasn't been heard from in days, has a crack addiction and is separated from his wife. Wow, your TV show gets canceled and everything falls apart.

TMZ has been reporting for a couple days now that Odom has possibly spiraled into drug use after being booted from the Dallas Mavericks to the L.A. Clippers, and has been using crack cocaine ever since (although mostly in the offseason). He was in rehab last year, but left after three weeks, the site says. Odom's rep added that the basketballer is safe somewhere, but wouldn't say where. Odom hasn't been heard from since Wednesday or so.

Now word comes that the couple have been separated for awhile, and Khloe tossed Lamar out of the house back on Wednesday, leading to this latest MIA drama. TMZ notes neither of them have consulted a divorce lawyer yet. We would guess he may be back in rehab, if he's not out using somewhere as TMZ suggests. The site said Khloe met with him in secret on Monday, but had no other details.

Speaking of Khloe, she has not been amused by any of this news, tweeting her displeasure on Sunday: "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s--- about my family! F--- you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this s---!" So it's not true, then?

While the truth about their marriage and Lamar's whereabouts no doubt will shake out eventually, on thing's for certain -- it's supremely ironic that Khloe Kardashian, who is famous only for selling her personal life to reality TV, is furious that the audience who made her rich is trying to pry into her personal life. The nerve!
