Lamar Odom's Addiction

Khloe's Dark Secret

0813_khloe_lamar_tmz_1
Khloe Kardashian kept Lamar Odom's crack addiction secret from her entire family for most of her marriage ... TMZ has learned.

Sources connected to the family tell us ... Khloe did not want to burden her family and jeopardize the Kardashian machine by telling the brood about Lamar's drug issues. We're told Kourtney and Kim Kardashian learned of Lamar's addiction "very recently."

We're told Kris Jenner has known about it for a longer period of time, but was still kept in the dark for many months.

Our sources say even when Khloe reached out for professional help -- for example hiring private investigators to follow Lamar -- she lied about the extent of the addiction. Our sources say Khloe told private investigators Lamar was addicted to "performance enhancing drugs" and that's why she needed their help. She never played the crack card.

When stories started to surface about Lamar sleeping with other women ... and the family started asking questions ... Khloe felt she needed to reveal the real issue. As one source put it, "Khloe was a real trooper. She's been living a nightmare."

Khloe is NO trooper. She is part of the problem. She's an enabler. She only did what she did to protect herself and that awful family of hers from the humuliation.

She has either just found out recently, or she has kept it a secret for most of the marriage. You can't have it both ways TMZ.

How do you go from a Laker to a Loser in less than two years? Marry a Kardashian.

I guess the Kardashians don't want us to keep up with the Kardashian's truth, just what they put on T.V. I guess their lucky number is 72. The number of days Kim was married, and the number of days Lamar's went missing.

Sad to see because Khloe and Kris have outed his private problem and ruined him. Happy girls? You are absolutely horrendous, I don't care what his problem is because Khloe you do have some part in this you are not an innocent as you try to portray. Poor poor Lamar.

I thought this family was SO close, and they share everything! Not so much when it's negative news that might rock their $$ empire!!! Trooper, my rear end -- more like a delusional fool holding onto nothing!!

Eh something isn't right here. I think she has a drug problem too, but probly hasn't escalated to crack cocaine.. They let Rob stay with them knowing the house was full of drugs..

Hold on a second....first, Kris Jenner "has known about his addiction, but kept in the dark about it." She chose to keep quiet about. No way was she going to allow anything to interfere with "RATINGS." The separation was inevitable as will be the divorce. Khloe will figure it out. Hopefully, without her family breathing down her neck!

He is a looser married into a looser family...they belong together. I can imagine he needed the drugs to deal with those bunch of dopes.
