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.

"Lamar slipped deep back into hardcore recreational drugs." - I LOL'd. What brainiac wrote that pulitzer-winning line? Sounds like the dude smokes weed to deal with her and her family of narcissistic a-holes. Nothing to see here, move along...

She best not even try to have kids, with Lamar, or anybody else. She wasn't producing any eggs at all, and to try to induce producing eggs, not a good idea to try to get them to become babies because they'll be 'defective'. She should also consider getting tested for being a hermaphrodite, which would explain why she can't produce any viable eggs. Anyway, she should dump Lamar and tell her mom to go fist herself up her vadge and Hershey chunnel, and then get tested for being a hermaphrodite.

So when PimpMomager said everything was OK between them ... she was lying!!!
This is so unlike PimpMomager to not reveal the truth. I wonder if so many of the other things she has said in the past are FALSE as well?

I'm sorry, I don't understand, I thought that major league sports organizations drug test their players often. How could he have avoided detection for so long. I'm not buying it.

It's kind of sad...of the whole Kardashian clan, I actually like Lamar and Khloe the most. But he isn't the first NBA star to flame out, and won't be the last. Give mostly uneducated people all the women and money they want, and this is what you get.

The NBA doesn't drug test, they do one drug test in the beginning of the season (anyone can pass that)
