Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's whirlwind, fairy tale romance was once that magical stuff of TV lore, a beacon of hope in a crazy world.
Then it unraveled slowly, but dramatically over the ensuing years.
Now, with Lamar fighting for his life after a possible overdose at a Nevada brothel, Khloe is by his side and he is in everyone's thoughts.
Having hit rock bottom and been at the brink of death, might Lamar turn this negative into a positive, and change his life for the better?
Let's take a look at their long, turbulent road to this point ...
A Whirlwind Romance
Khloe and Lamar met in August 2009 at a party for the former Ron Artest (now Metta World Peace) and were immediately inseparable.
They tied the knot just four weeks after they met, a move that seemed suspect at the time, but they were so in love, nothing else mattered and they quieted any doubts for a matter of years.
LO + KO 4-EVER
Shortly after, Khloe Kardashian became Khloe Kardashian Odom, and the couple tattooed the other's initials on their hands: LO & KO.
Khlomar quickly moved into a multi-million dollar house together, along with her brother Rob Kardashian, who became as tight with Lamar as he is with Khloe. All was right with the world.
After two years of marriage, Khloe and Lamar launched their first joint product ... the "Unbreakable" line. If only they lived up to that name.
Khloe & Lamar: The Show!
For a time, they even had their spinoff of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, creatively titled Khloe & Lamar. She's since gone back to filming spinoffs in which she and Kourtney TAKE Miami, New York, the Hamptons and so on and so on.
