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.

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

KHLOE MADE A MISTAKE. SHE WAS LEAST FAMOUS OF FAMILY. SHE MARRIED AN ALREADY OLD ATHLETE. HE IS HAS BEEN AND NOW SHE IS TOO YOUNG TO BE STUCK WITH A PROBLEM DRUG ADDICT. GET OUT AS FAST AS POSSIBLE KHLOE. YOU ARE NOT RESPONSIBLE IF HE O.D.'S. FILE FOR DIVORCE ASAP. LAMAR IS THRU IN B.BALL AND AS A PERSON.

Statement to be released:
Khloe has decided to skip next season's
Keeping up with the Kardashians - but fear not we have replaced Khloe with Chyna for the season. We have all been a fan of Chyna's style and beauty and know she will make a great Khloe. Pleas welcome Chyna and pray for Khloe and Lomar as they rise above crack gate.
love you dolls

This is what the Kardashians do when a man want to get away from them. They ruin their reputation. Run Lamar, run

I bet the name LAMMY sent him right over the edge. Kim should really be pissed because this news has sent her baby picture in a SOUTH WEST direction. Sorry NORTH WEST, maybe after the divorce thing dies down.

This is very sad, of all the Kardashians I was hoping Khloe would have a good marriage and be happy. I really like her and her husband. I really pray they can work this mess out(if its true) and get back to being a great couple. Good Luck and my preayers are with you both.

The birth of a new child by an Illuminati Member must follow certain occult guide lines. Recently we saw the induced labor of Kim Kardashian & Kanye’s child (nearly a full month premature), on 06-15-2013. 06-15-2013 has a numerical value of 666. June is the sixth month of the year, while one +five (15)=6 along with 2+0+1+3=6 aka 666.
Did Kanye West really name his child..North West? Absolutely not. North West is a cover name which hides an Illuminati name that is “Lucal Sobol”. Lucal Sobol is basically demon tongue or Enochian Illuminati, which translate into “North West”
