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."

Here we go the next installment of the Kockroachian media whoring. How amusing this troll claims she wants privacy yet here we are with the TMZ "source" scoop which means the Kockroachians are hard at work spinning the story

Guess they need a new story line for next season, because kim complaining shes not hot anymore isnt enough! I hope he divorces her and airs all the dirty laundry to shut them up!

What is the name of the character who was jealous of Rob and Lamar spending so much time together? Since Lamar supported him through his battle with addiction where is he when Lamar needs a friend? I am sad Khloe allowed the media and uncouth manager Kris to make Lamar's "reality" about business and not family. You don't kick a man down especially when he is already broken.

On the next episode of KUWTK...We all know that while Khole and Lamar may not be filmed together on the K'dash show, the klan will be discussing it. Just like Kris H. and Kim's crisis was discussed on their show. Some things should not be televised.

Since the drug problem has obviously been going on for a while, drug use is a major factor in Khloe not becoming pregnant. If she had gotten pregnant there also would be good chance something would be wrong with the baby. It's hard when emotions are involved, but cut your losses and just be thankful.

If this is true, she has been living a nightmare since she found out about his addiction.
.
HOWEVER... this is just another BIG REASON why people should NOT get married after only knowing one another a few weeks.
And this is just another reason why Kris SHOULD NOT have been SUPPORTIVE of this quickie marriage, and encouraged her daughter to wait. Kris should NOT have encouraged Kim's quickie marriage either.
But for some reason KRIS feels getting married after a few weeks is romantic and will end up well - WRONG! .
Or maybe Kris just feels long sensible engagements and stable lasting marriages ... would NOT bring in enough ratings!

"His cheating was because of the drugs" no, the cheating is because he's married to the fat, ugly one and that's why he's doing the drugs, it he is at all, my guess is all this BS is for the show.
