Khloe and Lamar

Marriage Crisis

Triggered By Drug Abuse

0823_khloe_lamar_02

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.

If you are suffering and being emotionally abused, the marriage isn't worth fighting for. Her life is just as important as his and she seems to be the only one trying. Believe me Khloe, it doesn't get better. Selfish is what it is. I was dumb enough to trust many lies and my life has been bludgeoned and destroyed. Don't let it happen to you. You are financially sound, don't let some guy steal your integrity. I wouldn't know what a loving family is but hopefully Khloe's will take some time out of their own images for a minute and be supportive in her time of need. You don't know us Khloe but just know that some of us hold you tightly in our hearts. Just hate to see another human life be destroyed.

Here's what's really going on, Kriss Jenners talk show is about to be dropped (her only guests were her family), ratings for Keeping up with the Kardashians have dropped and her spawned paycheck Kim is justafiably forced to be a less trashy woman and a momby Kanye. Kris is on to the next one....Kris will leak untrue stories to create drama about affairs, paternity suits, alcohol, drugs 72 day fake marriages with Scott and Lamar and her daughters. She'll even go so far to exploit her own marriage. Bitch is crafty, but I won't believe shyt TMZ says, they been suckling the Kardashian teat from the word go.

Kris Jenner is a goon plain and simple and she makes money off her children except Rob. Because he is fat and no one cares what he does.

These two both got hit with the ugly stick. She needs plastic surgery so bad. I don't know where you would start with him. Tear it down and build from the bottom up. Woof! Ugly isn't the word.
