The unbreakable couple has entertained us on countless episodes on E!
The loveable couple, with Khloe being a sex kitten, outspoken business woman and socialite, and her hubby Lamar the shy but affectionate popular basketball player, have been frequenting in the news a lot lately, but not for all the right reasons.
As their reality TV show is drawing to an end, Lamar was recently dumped by his NBA team, and following that there have been numerous reports that their marriage is hitting rocky waters.
But the big question is, does Lamar think Khloe Kardashian love her career and fame more than her marriage to him? and does he blame her for ruining a potentially great NBA career?
During the current season of their E! reality show, Odom has been sulking and been extremely upset that his former team, the Los Angeles Lakers, traded him to the Dallas Mavericks. At one stage in an episode he walks into his walk-in wardrobe looking for his Lakers jersey, and once locating it, embraces it lovingly whilst Khloe comes in and consoles him.
According to source, “Khloe is freaked out that if Lamar doesn’t sign with either the Lakers or possibly the Clippers, her marriage will be over.”
“She doesn’t feel that their marriage can handle another stressful move to another city. It’s not because she doesn’t support Lamar, she moved with him to Dallas, but it’s all Odom. Lamar has been increasingly bummed out and in a funk since the Lakers traded him and he thinks the only thing that will pull him out of it will be playing for the Lakers again. He loves the Lakers, they are and were his family.”
It should be remembered that Lamar was strongly affected by the death of his mother whilst he was quite young, and he has never quite had a close relationship with his father, whom he only recently reconciled with. Phil Jackson, his former Laker coach was the closest thing to a father to him, and he considered his teammates his brothers.
It seems quite saddening to know that this once strong loved-up pair are feeling the strain on their relationship, but perhaps the close scrutiny of their reality TV programme and the media could a key role in causing this.
But wait, that’s not the only thing…
According to Star Magazine, just a few months ago, Lamar was in a strip joint in Washington D.C. He apparently dissappeared into a private room with one of the strippers and no-one thought he was acting like a married man, even the strippers had a lot to say.
“Khloé was livid that Lamar went to that strip joint,” a source says. “There are big problems in this marriage, more than she is publicly discussing. There are deep seeded issues of trust that Khloé has and Lamar is angry at her for the way he is being perceived on their reality show.”
Things got so heated between the couple (and we don’t mean in a good way) that Khloe begged Lamar to attend couples therapy with her to try and iron everything out.
We hope for their sake that they can sort out their issues, rekindle their romance and once again grace our screens!
One thing Lamar has to remember is that he isn’t just married to Khloe. He is married to the entire Kardashian empire!
