Lamar Odom's Addiction

Khloe's Dark Secret

EXCLUSIVE

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."

That water head bitch is lying. Why would you try and get pregnant by a crack head. She just had to say something because her sister is getting all of the attention.

The NBA has a player doing crack and do not know about it. What other drugs, PED and other things are these guys doing that are being ignored.

When Saint Khloe did her I rather be naked than wear fur campaign photo - the then head of Peta upon seeing the photo allegedly released the following statement :
As a long time supporter and activist of animal rights , I'd rather see Khloe wear fur than go naked - truth

I am trying to figure out why anyone would believe anything that anyone in this family says.

Too bad I was hoping they could get through the infidelity issue. This will be harder for her. She's the only K I like.

Lamar should have seen the writing on the wall as he watched the take down of Kris Humphries/bet he is glad he got the heck out.
Sorry but not buying the idea of Khloe being the silent suffering wifey and if she was shame on her for so many reasons.

If the source was Kris Jenner.....then I dont believe it!! They want to trash the men in these girls' lives and make them girls look like saints. If anything he IS cheating on her but crack looks so much worse!

I have a strong suspicion that this is all false and the KKKardashian's are lying to ruin his life since he's been cheating http://youtu.be/v_d2Bf1oHr4on Khloe
