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.

What the hell is going on at TMZ?


You post a story. Then it's gone. Then another story comes up on top.


Where's the story about him missing? Were you told by the Klan to take it down? Did the Klan not find it juicy enough and are presently working on it ? The later they will tell you to put it back up.


Change your name to KMZ.. You suck.

Yeah something fishy is going on . The pics dont look like they were taking in the same place. Thats not a place of residence, so how does this pic show that she kicked him out? Looks more like he was coming from a trip or something . I think TMZ is full of **** on this one ,But you can't excpect truth& integrity from Tabloid Magazine

NEWSFLASH: TMZ worships the Kardashian's and refuses to portray any of them in a bad light.

The cheating rumors ARE TRUE, Khloe is very embarassed. Her mother told her not to worry and that they would spin it to make Lamar look like a druggie and make Khloe look like a saint. It's not a secret anymore though,

this article explains it better http://www.crazydaysandnights.net/2013/08/kris-jenner-stars-spinning-khloe-and.html


Good to know my source who told me this months ago knows what he is talking about. All the talk of TMZ being Kardashian worshippers who refuse to print one story on them showing them in a bad light is true. I am over TMZ, you, just like the E! channel, are pretty much owned by the kardashians. Later!

Obviously, a spoon-fed, made-up story by the KarTRASHians, or TMZ would never have run it, since they are on the payroll!
