Lamar Odom and Khloe' Kardasian have been married since 2009.  The two have been featured in the reality shows 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians" as well as starring in their own E! reality show, "Khloé & Lamar."
However, the couple has faced hard times the last few months, as various media outlets have reported that Odom has been abusing drugs on a regular basis.
Earlier this week, Odom's player agent, Jeff Schwartz, shot down rumors that NBA star had been missing for 72 hours.  Schwartz told ESPN, "Lamar is not missing.  His wife knows exactly where he is."  However he declined to reveal his client's whereabouts, rather Schwartz added: "Playing in the NBA is still very much a part of Lamar's plans."

Understandably enough, the husband and wife duo, have been tight-lipped about the media scrutiny surrounding Lamar's issue.  Out of agrivation from all the speculation Khloe' did vent on Twitter on Sunday tweeting, "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---!" she wrote.
