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.

"It's one of the most inspiring cities on Earth so it's always great to be here," Baloji says.
