NEW YORK (MYFOXNY) -

NBA free agent and reality TV star Lamar Odom is reportedly addicted to prescription drugs including Oxycontin and Ambien.

RadarOnline.com and TMZ.com report the Queens native was kicked out of his home by wife Khloe Kardashian last Wednesday when he rejected a family intervention.

TMZ reports that Odom, a former player for the LA Lakers and LA Clippers, moved on to crack cocaine and has been on a binge since being forced out of his California mansion.

His agent, Jeff Schwartz, told the gossip website that Kardashian has visited her husband at an undisclosed location and that he is "fine."

Odom is reportedly prepared to make a statement about his prescription drug addiction, according to RadarOnline.

Rumors have swirled about a deteriorating marriage for the couple who wed only four weeks after first meeting.  Several women have come forward alleging affairs with the NBA standout.

Kardashian, one of the stars of the reality TV series Keeping Up With The Kardashians, has discussed their failed attempts at conceiving a child.

    LL Cool J stays true to hip hop roots

    Friday, August 1 2014 10:38 PM EDT2014-08-02 02:38:22 GMT
    EXCLUSIVE -- LL Cool J grew and evolved from a hip hop artist out of Hollis, Queens, to a Hollywood TV and movie star. But he always stayed true to hip hop culture. We'd see him backstage at concerts just hanging out with us, so when I heard he was back in New York for the summer I had to find out why. I tracked him down to a Midtown Manhattan recording studio for this exclusive interview.

    "Get on Up" is in theaters now. The film chronicles the career of James Brown, who had a special connection to Harlem and New York. Billy Mitchell is the in-house historian at the historic Apollo Theater. He says the Apollo was a second home to Brown, as it was here where he became an international superstar who appealed to all. But Brown's NYC legacy stretches even further.
