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.

They're still together?

I'm impressed. No, seriously, I am. I figured they'd be long divorced by now. She could remarry and get great ratings with the wedding for whatever show they're doing these days.

I wish the best for Khloe I don't know if anything I hear is true but if it is I would like to tell Khloe there is only much you can do to help him in the end its up to him to take care of his problem. I'm not a fan of the rest of her family but she always seems to be the only normal one in the family. I do hope for her sake if rumors are true she needs to know she has to think of herself first so she can take of herself. I don't really care about the rest of her family I think they whatever to get attention but she seems to be the only normal one in her family. So I hope things go her way she seems to handle her life as best as she can. Out of everyone in her family she is the only one I'm interested in and I hope she takes of herself. Take care Khloe you are in my prayers always. I channel surf during commercials but if she's not on I change channel because I don't like watching the others. Keep your chin up and you need to take of yourself first. Please do.

Okay, so Lamar has finally resurfaced, looking gaunt and drained from the crack binge he allegedly went on. If you're wondering what he's been up to, check out the latest post at Wacky Redonkulous News: "Lamar Odom Spotted in La La Land, Trying to Impersonate James Brown."

OMG, is she really that stupid that she had to hire a private-investigator to learn that "commitment" is not part of black-males' culture?!?...

What, was she like "oh but he's different!"...
