Khloe Kardashian-Lamar Odom Divorce Rumors: Drug Abuse AND Cheating to Blame?!

by at .  Updated at . Comments

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's marriage is on the rocks, and it looks like more than just idle gossip about Jennifer Richardson and Polina Polonsky.

Reports say he has a serious drug problem.

The 33-year-old NBA player has battled drug addiction for two years, and it reached the point last summer where she pressured him to go to rehab.

He did so, but Khloe Kardashian was so skeptical of his sincerity that she hired private investigators to wait outside 24/7 to make sure he didn't bail.

After three weeks and at least that many arguments over him leaving, he bolted for good, but did reportedly stay clean through the 2012-13 NBA season.

When the season ended this spring though, Lamar's recreational drug use returned. As for the persistent cheating rumors that have dogged him?

Both Jennifer Richardson and Polina Polonsky have gone on the record, and into detail, claiming they had sexual relationships with the NBA star.

Khloe believes Lamar did in fact cheat on her, but feels that's almost secondary to his drug problem, which she's treating as the primary concern.

It's that bad.

"Khloe is more concerned about saving Lamar than ending her marriage," a source tells TMZ, adding that Kim Kardashian's younger sister is not divorcing him.

At least not yet. She hasn't hired a lawyer (nor as he), and she recently posted a pointed message to the haters, telling them simply not to judge.

And get this: Khloe and her entire family are believed to have staged an intervention last week, trying to convince Lamar Odom to go back to rehab.

He was not receptive to the idea, and so after the intervention failed, Khloe threw Lamar out of the house. Odom was seen putting some stuff in a friend's car.

Crazy stuff, and certainly not encouraging for Khlomar, though if you're looking for a silver lining, it's clear she does not want to throw in the towel.

Some people might get married just for TV ratings, then end it after 72 days, but this is not that. Khloe is willing to forgive a lot ... IF Lamar cares.

It sounds serious, and if they do split, it won't be for lack of effort.

UPDATE: According to a new report, Lamar Odom's drug of choice was a serious and potentially deadly one: Crack cocaine. He has still not commented.

Khloe and Lamar: Should she divorce him?


I never thought I would feel sorry for a Kardashian, but my heart really goes out to Khloe. Rehab only works for those who want help, not those who are forced to go. You can do better girl, Lamar should become a bad memory.

Don't talk crap you silly girl your men are the most sex deprived men I've met, they prowl the streets perverting on our women even young girls whilst there wife's are stuck in the house doing as there told, they make me sick.

@ Hyojin_1983

Is it no wonder. Look how white women conduct themselves. Everybody knows they are the easiest lay, they do act like trash and that's why they are treated as such.

@ Hyojin_1983

Not all men want an Asian girl you racist peeve of trash.

@ Amy

Why the hell are you bringing up race???????


you are a dirty woman from a filthy family. you got what you asked for.


I think Khloe is doing the right thing. Drugs make people crazy and do dumb things because they are powerless over the addiction. She knows her husband is not himself, he is sick and needs help. Would you bail on a family member if they told you they had a chronic disease or cancer? NO! Lamar is battling a disease, much like alcoholism. He needs help, and his WIFE made a promise to God, in sickness and in health. Good for you Khloe! Lam Lam, I hoping you get through this!


I'm black and my wife is white. We have 2 beautiful daughters together, race has NOTHING to do with their issues


This is one of the many reasons whites should not date interracial dating people stick to dating your own race. Love every race but don't date between races. It is not natural too many differences

@ Kayleigh Heinrich

You are so ignorant.
