Khloe Kardashian has kicked her husband Lamar Odom out the house and despite the couple’s separation over Lamar’s alleged drug abuse problem and rumors that a divorce could follow soon, the reality star made it clear that she’s still very protective of the NBA baller.
It was a shock for many fans when the rumors of trouble in paradise were confirmed, not because anybody thought their marriage was perfect. But not too many fingers were pointing to serious drug addiction as the cause of the marital turmoil.
In the midst of all the cheating rumors, it was recently revealed that Khloe tried to have an intervention for Lamar for an alleged crack addiction that has been ongoing for about two years, according to some sources close to the family.
The same sources are saying that the curvy star just couldn’t take it anymore and claimed that if Lamar wasn’t going to get help, he had to get out the house.
The couple have remained separated since Khloe put him out on Wednesday, but that doesn’t mean she still isn’t protective of her man and looking out for his best interest.
Other sources said that the famous reality star is more concerned about getting Odom help than dealing with a divorce, although to the outside eyes it does seem like a divorce may not be too far down the road.
Either way, Khloe still doesn’t appreciate the media taking notice of her failing marriage.
“Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s**t about my family,” she tweeted on Aug. 25. “F*** you and shame on you! I’m too protective for this s**t!”
One source explained that this is simply a lot for Khloe to deal with because she has been
keeping Lamar’s problem a secret for so long.
“It’s a really hard time for Khloe,” the source told People. “She’s kept this secret for almost two years, trying to save Lamar and their marriage. Lamar genuinely doesn’t think he has a problem – it’s all ‘work hard then party hard’ with him until it goes off the rails.”
Odom actually did check into rehab before after Khloe pressured him to do so, but he also stayed for a few weeks before leaving for good. After ditching rehab, he managed to stay clean for the rest of that basketball season, but once he was off the court he was reportedly back into using the dangerous drugs.
In the midst of all the chaos, reports also surfaced that the former Dallas Mavericks baller was missing for three days, but yet another source is speaking up and saying that Lamar is okay and “is not missing.”
Perhaps he just wanted to go stay with a not-so-famous friend for a while. In all honesty, the last thing he needs right now is to be in the spotlight while trying to conquer a drug addiction.
Neither Khloe nor Lamar have made any moves to contact a divorce lawyer at this time.
