Khloe and Lamar

Marriage Crisis

Triggered By Drug Abuse

The marriage of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom is in crisis, and TMZ has learned ... the core reason is hardcore drug abuse.

Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... Lamar has had a problem for 2 years.  It got so bad, last August Khloe pressured Lamar to go to rehab.  Lamar went to a facility in San Diego, but he was so resistant Khloe hired private investigators to secretly stand guard at the rehab place to make sure he didn't leave.  The P.I.s stood guard 24/7. 

Our sources say Lamar constantly threatened to leave and Khloe made several visits to prevail upon him to stay.  We're told after 3 weeks, Lamar left for good.

We're told Lamar actually stayed clean once he left rehab and was able to play well for the Clippers this past season.  But when the season was over, sources say Lamar slipped deep back into hardcore recreational drugs. 

As for reports that Lamar was cheating recently, we're told Khloe is convinced it happened, and she feels she's been hit with a double whammy ... but drugs are the main problem.

As for divorce ... neither Khloe nor Lamar has contacted a lawyer.  As one source put it, "Khloe is more concerned about saving Lamar than ending her marriage."

We're told the situation has become dire.  Sources tell us ... within the last 2 days, the entire family staged an intervention, trying to convince Lamar to go back to rehab, but he wouldn't have any of it.

In fact, on Wednesday morning, right after the failed intervention, Khloe threw Lamar out of the house and as you see from the pic (above), one of Lamar's friends is loading Lamar's stuff in his car as Lamar watches.

We attempted to reach Lamar for comment ... so far, no word back.

I doubt if Khloe threw Lamar out of the house. Lamar probably left on his own after that annoying Kardashian family tried to intervene. If Khloe wants to help Lamar, then have an intervention with HIS own family. That would have more impact.

If I were married to a Kartrashian, I'd do a lot of drugs too.

Umm ok...    

If their marriage was more important than anything, they should have dumped her crazy family and all the cameras long ago and moved somewhere else.

Where are they loading that luggage at? In front of a laundromat? Doesn't look like he's been staying at the house or a 5 star hotel!! Something's up

I guess Lamar didn't really believe in the adage that if you lay down with dogs you get up with fleas.

Living with or around a Kardashian will make you smoke pot, hit the bottle and go right to the rock.

Kloe was NO innocent young girl when she hooked into LaMarr....If I remember correctly that was the year of Poor Khloe on the Keeping up with the Kartrashion reality show.....they focused on her and her wanting a baby and dating. and Wah La !!
up pop Khloe and Lamarr ultra fast dating and marriage and baby talk abounded....on the show.... but his career nose dived,he got traded twice and no baby cause one of them is sterile.....and things having gone south and not as Kris had them planned ...
As I've said this was know innocent girl loving for true love.....and all this she's sticking to him because she loves him is bull shyt......Khloe is NOT the victim but come Hell or High Water ....Kris Jenner will try to make her so...and Lamarr is going the same way Kris Humphies did....I feel sorry for any man stupid enough to get involved with the Kardashions........
