(Newser) – Call off the search: Lamar Odom has not disappeared, despite what you may have read yesterday. His agent tells ESPN.com in no uncertain terms: "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is." He wouldn't say where that was, but a source tells ESPN it's a Los Angeles hotel, where he's holed up with friends who are attempting to help him deal with his drug problem. Wife Khloe Kardashian responded to the recent rumors (which also included a supposed split) on Twitter: "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---!"

People's source apparently agrees with Odom's agent: Khloe and Lamar have been in contact, but Kardashian "hasn't made any decisions yet about what to do" about her marriage, the source says. "Right now she's just leaning towards trying to get him help." TMZ (which has a photo of Lamar from yesterday as proof of life) says the couple had a "secret meeting," and that Khloe is determined to "save" her husband but won't reunite with him until he's off drugs. The good news: She was wearing her wedding and engagement rings again yesterday, after previously being spotted without them, X17 reports.
