Khloe and Lamar

Marriage Crisis

Triggered By Drug Abuse

EXCLUSIVE

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.

OJ simpsons house is being foreclosed so says ROL

SHame kim kardashian and kanye cant buy or donate the funds to the brown family ..

CONSIDERING OJ SIMPSON IS KIMS GOD FATHER in real life.

spending money on 850k gold toilets and she cant help out her god father oj from foreclosure.

and why is tmz so concerned about klhoe? klhoe is a big girl and has a net worth of 7 million and she will be fine with or without lamars cheating and fake drug stories.

kris should have had oj simpson on her final show when she pimped out kims baby pic for ratings. considering oj simpson is kim kardashians god father im sure having kanye and oj on screen interview with the baby pic finally would have really boosted her final shows ratings..

oj and baby north would have given her all the ratings in disgust she needed.
