Over the past few months, Lamar Odom has done damn near everything possible to torpedo his marriage. He’s reportedly cheated on his wife Khloe Kardashian with at least one woman. He’s reportedly blown thousands of dollars on crack. He’s been arrested, dropped from his NBA team and accused of burglary. Given all that, it’s not a surprise his marriage is almost sprinting toward divorce court, but it is a surprise that Odom himself is reportedly the one pushing it there.
You’d think after all the bullshit she’s had to put up with that Khloe would be the one sick of being in the union but according to People, she really wants to make the marriage work, despite the litany of problems he’s thrown at her door. Unfortunately, Lamar doesn’t feel the same way. He’s been living outside the family’s home for much of the past few months, and he’s apparently fine with that. Sources close to the situation claim she’s doing everything in her power to hold things together, but he’s not interested in helping in the slightest. He seems to think he would be totally fine on his own, much the same way he thinks he doesn’t have a drug problem.
Because Odom’s issues are affecting his career and could even potentially affect his life, it’s unlikely an actual divorce will occur in the short-term. Everyone is primarily focused on getting Lamar into rehab, but every single day this rift continues is another obstacle these two will have to overcome before reconciling. Emotional wounds like this don’t just go away after someone gets sober or stops cheating or wakes the hell up. They can fester for decades.
Pop Blend’s sincerest thoughts go out to Khloe and Lamar during this troubling time. There are some serious problems in their relationship, problems that probably won’t ever be fixed, but hopefully, they at least get to the point soon where they’re both safe and happy, whether it’s together or apart.
