NBA and “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star Lamar Odom has been named the new face of the “Got Milk?” advertising campaign following his image appearing on thousands of Los Angeles milk cartons after TMZ reported that he had been missing for over 72 hours. According to Odom’s agent Jeff Schwartz, his client is such a huge fan of milk, that he constantly used going out for it as his excuse to escape from wife Khloe Kardashian and her annoying family.
“My client has long dreamed of being the face of ‘Got Milk?,’ ” Schwartz told Hollywood & Swine. “My client has also dreamed of breaking free from the Kardashians.”
This isn’t the first time Odom’s face has appeared on milk cartons in Los Angeles. During his up-and-down playing career with the Lakers and Clippers, his teams would routinely put his image on them after he’d go missing on the basketball court during critical moments.
Schwartz also refuted rumors that his client’s reported disappearance was the result of being on a crack-cocaine binge. Schwartz revealed the only binge Odom has gone recently is a milk binge, which is why he is currently held up in an undisclosed hotel room bathroom, dealing with stomach cramps, caused by his extreme lactose intolerance.
Kardashian matriarch and new daytime talk show host Kris Jenner expressed her concern for her son-in-law Odom’s whereabouts, which is why she has “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” cameramen currently scouring the city searching for him.
“I was afraid this sort of thing would happen, which is why I insisted we put a tracker inside Kanye West,” Jenner said. “I’m confident everything will work out. If America can’t escape the Kardashians, what chance does Lamar Odom have?”
