Khloe and Lamar

Marriage Crisis

Triggered By Drug Abuse

EXCLUSIVE

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.

Its sad whenever anyone is struggling with a controlled substance.I know from personal experience.I had someone very dear and close to me struggle for years and its actually heart breaking.I know sometimes people think if the get high it would help the situation, but, in all actuality it only compounds the problem.I pray that khloe and Lamar overcome this dilemma that has invaded their lives. My prayers are definitely with them and their families, God prevails over all!!!!!

Sad for all involved. Lamar's kids and his ex girlfriend I am sure are not surprised. Divorce is ugly and when cheating is involved nothing worse than a scorned woman. I hope none of this is true.

HAHAHA, seriously? This is how the Kardashians want to spin his cheating. Ohhh, he has a drug problem, and there's not even one clue about what drug! Give me a break! The loser cheated and this is how the Kardashians will spin it. No, he didn't have a raging hard on for other women, he is just an addict! hahahahaha

I feel sorry for Khloe. She has done everything to make it work. If Lamar doesn't want to admit he has a problem, she can do nothing except divorce him. Thank God they never had kids.

I have to say I'm shocked. It was bad enough when it seemed like he may be cheating, but drugs? I would have thought he wouldn't have anything to do with them after what he went through with his dad. So sad!

These pictures were not taken at their house. There are thank you for shopping here signs in the background. This story is complete bs.

Also, Khloe had her own alcohol and cocaine issues a few years back. People in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.

To me this looks like another face saving POS Pimp Momma Kris manipulation ..... perhaps her total claim to fame being having a daughter who got peed on in a porn video is starting to trouble her ..... as well it should.....
