Khloe Kardashian has had a rough week. For the last two years, she’s been very quietly dealing on and off with her husband Lamar Odom’s alleged drug problems. For months, she kept the substance abuse hidden from her mom, and until very recently, she kept it hidden from everyone else. No doubt it was a relief to finally let others in, but now that the whole world knows, the situation has likely gotten even more stressful.

The above picture was posted on Instagram last night, and there’s something about it that’s both sad and powerful. Ordinarily, Khloe is a smiler. She’s a woman who loves life and naturally radiates positive energy, but in this picture, she’s clearly forlorn. She’s clearly worn down by the gravity of her situation and the intensity of the media spotlight. The lack of a smile and even her hair seem to point to that, but there’s also something about this picture that portrays a resolve. Khloe might not be in the best of places right now, but she’s sure as hell not giving up. She’s a fighter, always has been and always will be. She’ll land on her feet, regardless of how this situation with her husband shakes out.

Situation actually might be far too nice of a euphemism for what’s been going on. Odom was caught smoking pot early in his career, but a few years ago during the end of his tenure with the Lakers, he reportedly started getting into more serious problems. Some hotel rooms were destroyed, and his behavior supposedly became erratic. By the time he got to the Mavericks two seasons ago, he was a shell of his former self on the court, and near the end of the season, the team got so sick of his bullshit, they paid him to go away. After a trip to rehab, he reportedly kicked his drug habit before last season, which is probably why he actually played a hell of a lot better for the Clippers. He may not have been as great as he once was, but he actually was a reliable contributor on the court. Once the season ended, however, he apparently plunged back into his old habits. He even went missing for awhile, and now rumors are raging that divorce may be imminent.

Some sources close to the Kardashian family are saying Khloe is firmly committed to helping Lamar get better and isn’t even thinking about divorce right now. Whether that’s true or not, she needs to figure out a way to help him but also ensure her own safety and happiness. There’s a difference between bailing at the first sign of trouble and drowning with a sinking ship. By all accounts, Khloe and Lamar were extremely happy prior to his drug problems; so, for their sake, I hope he gets his act together immediately.

We’ll keep you updated. Until then, our thoughts go out to Khloe during her hour of need.
