EXCLUSIVE
0124_kaley_cuoco__khloe_lamar_odom_house_launchKhloe Kardashian's divorce isn't all bad -- TMZ has learned, she and Lamar Odom just dumped their massive marital mansion for a HUGE profit ... and now it's a "Big Bang Theory" star's problem.

As we first reported, Khloe and Lamar listed the 7-bedroom 8,000 sq. ft. Tarzana home last year for $4 million ... shortly before Khloe filed for divorce. They bought the house for $3.95 million in 2009.

Now, sources tell us, the home has sold for $5.49 million ... nearly $1.5 million more than the asking price. We're told Khloe's now looking for a new place near her mom in Hidden Hills.

According to sources, the house was purchased by "Big Bang Theory" star Kaley Cuoco and her new husband ... who obviously don't believe in curses.

Lamar Odom
is as done with his marriage as Khloe Kardashian and wants to get married again STAT -- to his basketball career ... sources connected to Lamar tell TMZ.

We broke the story ... Khloe filed for divorce Friday, citing irreconcilable differences.  The last straw was Lamar shooting the rap video in which he bragged about cheating on Khloe.

Now get this ... Lamar blames the infidelity on his friends who are "supporting me the wrong way by bringing girls around."

Lamar also casts blame on Khloe ... telling his friends, "I can't be f**kin' with Khloe.  She brings out the bad side of me."

Lamar says he needs to "get married" to his basketball career and wants to ignore the past.

And that's the world according to Lamar Odom.

Khloe Kardashian
has just filed court documents to divorce Lamar Odom and restore her name -- TMZ has learned.

As we first told you, Khloe planned to pull the trigger today on her 4-year marriage to Lamar, who has been deep in the world of drugs on and off for the last 2 years.

In the legal docs, filed by disso-queen Laura Wasser, Khloe cites "irreconcilable differences."

As we previously reported, the couple has a prenup so division of property will be a cinch -- they kept all their property separate.

And Khloe is asking the judge to take Odom out of her name, so she is once again simply Khloe Kardashian ... eliminating Odom from her life in every way.

And, Khloe is NOT asking for spousal support and wants the judge to reject any bid by Lamar for the same.

Khloe Kardashian

Filing for Divorce

Khloe Kardashian is filing for divorce from Lamar Odom ... TODAY ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us, Khloe will be citing irreconcilable differences in her legal docs. The split should be pretty cut and dry -- an ironclad prenup which kept all their assets separate ... and no kids.

As we reported, Lamar's bizarre freestyle rap video -- in which he brags about cheating on Khloe -- was the last straw in their crumbling relationship.  Immediately after TMZ posted the video last month, Khloe stopped wearing her wedding ring.

The end was a long time coming ... Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar's crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he'd OD or worse.

Lamar and Khloe tied the knot in September 2009.

Lamar's Cheating Rap Was Last Straw

Khloe Kardashian is done with Lamar Odom, and the final straw was the alcohol/drug-fueled rap song in which Lamar brags about cheating on her.

The pictures tell the story ... on Nov 23, Khloe was in Australia, boarding a plane for the U.S.  She was wearing her wedding ring.

Khloe didn't know it, but TMZ had just posted a video of Lamar Odom, in which her hubby is clearly under the influence of something, rapping about infidelity -- "And when Khloe's out of town I still be on the DL."

Sources connected to Khloe say she found out about the video on the plane and went ballistic.  When she landed she was hiding her left hand in her purse.  Two days later, the ring was gone and she hasn't worn it since.

As we previously reported, Khloe WILL divorce Lamar.  The question is when ... as far as we know, she hasn't decided when to pull the trigger.

Kris Jenner has no hard feelings over her break up with Bruce Jenner or the disaster that has become the marriage of Lamar Odom and Khloe ... TMZ has learned both men are invited to Thanksgiving.

Our Kardashian/Jenner sources say ... Bruce has already accepted.  We're told Bruce is surprised anyone would even question whether he's going.  He's telling friends, "Of course I'm going.  It's my family."

The jury's out on Lamar -- he hasn't said yay or nay.

As for why the doors are wide open ... the Kardashians say Bruce and Lamar are family and "always will be."

By the way ... guess who won't be there -- Kim, Kanye and North West.  He's in Miami on tour, and they're along for the ride.

Lamar Odom admits he fell off the wagon last week ... but he insists he was s**faced drunk, and not cracked out.

Lamar told friends he's seen the video (above) we posted on TMZ, showing him slurring his words in an L.A. bathroom as he rapped with his fellow shirtless friend Jamie Sangouthai.

Lamar says it was a one time deal and NO drugs were involved -- he was specific about 2 drugs he's had problems with -- crack and coke.

Lamar insists he's now clean and training hard at the University of Rhode Island.

So we gotta ask ...

Cracked Out Rap Video

I Cheated on Khloe

Lamar Odom's drug problem is only getting worse -- at least that's how it looks in this video, shot this month and obtained by TMZ, showing Lamar incoherently rapping without his shirt on ... talking about drugs, making money without the NBA, and cheating on Khloe Kardashian.

Lamar appears out of it, rapping about making money off his fragrance "Unbreakable," and how he smokes drugs to make "the pain go away." He even drops Kanye's name.

But the crazy part -- Lamar raps, "And when Khloe's out of town / I still be on the DL." His friend then follows up, "You know what it is / We the QU [Queens] pimps / Ask any of these shorties / We ran through their cribs."

Translation: when Khloe's away, Lamar will play.

As we reported, Lamar's currently training hard in Rhode Island, trying to get his ass back in shape for the NBA -- but drugs are still obviously a big part of his life.

Lamar Odom just confirmed to TMZ ... discussions are underway for a return to the team he loved -- the L.A. Clippers.

We got Lamar at LAX about an hour ago ... and he made it clear something is going on between him and the team.

Coach Doc Rivers said he met with Lamar Friday to have a chit chat and there is a buzz that serious negotiations are underway.

Lamar certainly wants back because we know he's been seriously training for the last month ... and as far as we know he's drug free.

Lamar Odom
has a savior ... and it turns out it's the other guy in the Kardashian house who left the Klan ... Bruce Jenner.

Sources connected to both Bruce and Lamar tell TMZ ... Lamar has been spending a lot of time with Bruce at his new home in Malibu.  They spend hours together during which Bruce counsels Lamar on various life issues, including how to stay clean and whose company he should and shouldn't be keeping.

Bruce is telling confidantes Lamar is CLEAN -- free of drugs and alcohol.

We're told Bruce feels he's a positive influence on Lamar and can make a huge difference in his life.  Bruce has told friends he loves Lamar and thinks he's a "good soul." 

As Bruce told one friend, "Everybody's got s**t in their life and they need to learn how to deal with it.  Lamar didn't deal with his very well."

Bruce is also telling friends ... Lamar is working out constantly and has not given up on his dream to return to the NBA.

And Bruce is saying ... it doesn't matter that Khloe is pulling the plug on her marriage ... he will stay close to Lamar because he genuinely cares for him.

I'm Dumping The Ol' Bag

Lamar Odom is living the life of a vagabond ... never staying in one place too long.  Latest stop -- a friend's home.

Lamar dropped off a fully-packed suitcase at a pal's house in L.A. on Wednesday -- which also happened to be his 34th birthday.

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar and Khloe Kardashian are secretly selling their Tarzana mansion -- although Lamar hasn't lived there for months -- and Khloe plans to divorce Lamar once she thinks his life is stable enough to handle it.

Lamar took a momentary break from his baggage handling to flex his reduced muscles.

Everybody's got baggage.

Lamar Odom

He Can't Keep Up the Khloe Lie Anymore

11/7/2013 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF


Lamar Odom seems to be waiving the white flag over his marriage -- at least that's the way it appeared when he was asked about Khloe Kardashian on his way out of lunch to celebrate his 34th birthday.

Lamar went to Casa Vega in the San Fernando Valley -- a place Kim, Khloe and the rest of the klan often go for good Mexican food. 

Watch the video and see the look on Lamar's face when he tries to deal with the Khloe question.

TMZ broke the story ... Khloe plans to divorce Lamar, but she's made a decision NOT to prepare or file any legal docs, because she thinks it could be the last straw in his fragile life.  On top of that, there's no pressing reason to pull the trigger on the marriage ... yet.

SECRETLY Selling Family Home

EXCLUSIVE
1107_kardashian_house_launch
Khloe Kardashian
and Lamar Odom are packing it in -- we've learned they are secretly selling their Tarzana mansion.

Real estate sources tell TMZ ... Khloe has given several San Fernando Valley realtors a pocket listing -- meaning the house will not appear in the multiple listing service.  It's being done on the down low.  Any prospective buyer must pre-qualify before seeing the house, meaning they must have the dough to buy the crib. 

We're told Khloe and Lamar want a cool $4 mil for the house.  They paid $3.95 million in 2009.

Our sources say Khloe is the driving force behind the sale, telling realtors she wants to "start fresh and move on."

Title to the house is held in both Khloe and Lamar's names.

As TMZ first reported, Khloe intends to divorce Lamar, but no documents have been prepared or filed because she knows he's in a fragile state and doesn't want to push him over the edge.
