The Kardashian clan has been in the public eye for a while and in that time, weíve seen various family members deal with troubled relationships. Khloe Kardashian-Odom and Lamar Odom always seemed like the golden couple within the family, but over the last couple of months as news of Lamor Odomís reported drug addictions surfaced, the threads have started to unravel. Kardashian hasn't said much publically about the problems in her relationship, but recently, she made a subtle alteration that seems to speak volumes.
Kardashianís been a pretty avid user of her Instagram account lately, posting a few sad and determined photos of herself. She recently changed her name on the social photo site, taking away the Odom. The small gesture could mean that the couple will be heading to divorce court soon, as rumors have indicated over the past several weeks.
After trashing some photographers' cars in July, word broke in August that the former NBA 6th man of the year has reportedly been doing crack cocaine for a couple of years ago. That news at first seemed wild, but as more and more stories broke and people began connecting the playerís drug use with his failures and issues in his NBA career, the whole thing became more difficult to deny. Couple that with the potential that Odom may have cheated on his wife of nearly four years and you can see why the two might be having problems.
At the end of August, Khloe and her family confronted Odom about his drug use, and when he refused to do anything about it, she asked him to pack his stuff and leave their home. In the weeks following, Odom was arrested. Beyond that, he continued ignoring Kardashianís pleas to work on their marriage.
You canít fight for a marriage if your partner isnít equally invested, and Kardashianís recent Instagram name change seems to prove that she has accepted that.
