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."

Is she a trooper? Or is she desperate? Not putting down addiction, but she;s always struck me as desperate kind of wookie. Should've left him by now.

I wish Khloe the best they been together for some quite time and you TMZ people are always putting down celebrities or just being trolls. A relationship is a relationship this happens every day people's loved ones on drugs and she shouldn't leave him he just needs help and rehab very bad.

She is living a nightmare. Only being half sister to Kim and Kourt. Not knowing if her father is OJ or some other random black man her wh0re mom banged. Had to be rough growing up like that. I think Khloe should get her own show. "Growing Up Wookie"

LOL, This story sounds like total fiction. I never saw anything like this. There was no need for all this damage control. Kim ended her marriage in 72 days for no reason at all. These two didn't work out for whatever reason. I wouldn't be surprised if Khloe was doing drugs with Lamar. You think she lost all that weight by dieting? Coke is much faster.She stayed until the cheating rumors were public and verified and then she blew him in to every tabloid she could. Or Kris did. Do they realize that no one cares if these two split or why? Make this siege of Kardashian stories STOP!
