Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian finally came back together in public -- for the first time in months -- and all it took for them to reunite was Kris Jenner getting separated.
Khloe and Lamar were photographed driving together -- she had the wheel, he rode shotgun -- near her mom's home in Calabasas ... right around the time news broke about Kris and Bruce Jenner's split on Tuesday.
Nothing too warm and fuzzy about the look on their faces in the SUV ... but it is the first time KK and LO did anything together -- besides discussing his drug addiction -- since early summer.
Despite the fact they appear to be rallying for Kris ... our sources say Khloe and Lamar's marriage is still much closer to being over than reconciled.
Even momager Kris might not be able to fix this one -- plus, she's got her own issues now.

10/8/2013 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The Game lashed out -- threatening to go all Kanye on paps last night -- and it was all in defense of Khloe Kardashian.
Khloe and Game were getting swarmed as they walked out of Tru Nightclub -- where she was hosting -- and Game put all the paparazzi on notice, shouting ... "Put your cameras down, or there's gonna be 7 broke cameras!"
And just to make sure the paps were paying attention, Game played the Yeezy card, adding ... "You thought Kanye was a problem? I'm a REAL problem!"
As for what set Game off -- the crowd around Khloe was seriously obnoxious (see vid below) ... shouting comments about Lamar Odom's crack addiction, and coming on to her. Problem is ... the photogs weren't the ones yelling that stuff.
Kardashian women ... making rappers violent since 2011.

He'll OD or Kill Himself
10/7/2013 2:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian has taken NO steps to divorce Lamar Odom ... because she's afraid he'll die or kill himself if she does ... TMZ has learned.
Sources connected to the couple tell TMZ ... barring a miracle, Khloe thinks divorce is "inevitable." But she's afraid if she files, Lamar will overdose and die or be pushed over the edge and commit suicide.
Our sources say Khloe has put her life on hold, and at some point she has to take care of herself.
Khloe, we're told, is just too afraid to pull the trigger. So for now, no divorce papers have been drawn up and there's no plan for that to happen in the immediate future.
Signs Point to Crack Binge
During Phone Call with Khloe on Reality Show
10/7/2013 5:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Crack undertones on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" last night ... when Khloe took a bizarre phone call from a confused Lamar Odom ... and couldn't deny that something was clearly wrong.
During the scene, Lamar demands to know Khloe's location -- because he was told she was at another location doing something wrong.
But Khloe shoots back -- saying, "You keep calling me at my mom's [house] so you know where I am."
Khloe, clearly annoyed with Lamar, says he's not being "logical" -- and then starts making excuses for him ... saying he seems "tired."
At one point, Khloe tells Lamar ... "Listen, you're buggin' just a little bit."
It's unclear when the scene was shot -- but as we previously reported, Lamar's been struggling with crack for a while ... going out of his mind on multiple binges.
Drugs Are Expensive
But Porn Isn't
10/6/2013 11:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
In what could be a significant cost-cutting move, Lamar Odom has added to his obsessions -- but unlike his serious drug problem ... his newly acquired porn pal is free.
Lamar has set his sights on Tube8 -- according to his Twitter page -- a site that touts, "Everything always tastes better when it's free, including porn."
It's unclear when Lamar and Tube8 linked up, but Lamar is very fussy about what he follows. And only follows 50 celebs ... including Justin Bieber, Floyd Mayweather and the Kardashian/Jenner clan.
So for the time being, and clearly not of his own choice, Lamar has replaced Khloe with about a thousand other cool chicks.
Lamar Odom's Roommate
She's A Floozy
Says Former Client!
10/4/2013 12:19 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
The attorney who let Lamar Odom smoke crack in her house is being accused of malpractice for cavorting with a druggie and practicing law at the same time ... TMZ has learned.
Polina Polonsky -- the woman who allowed Lamar to move in with her in June and stay for 6 weeks until Khloe banged on her door and removed her husband -- was representing Tracy Strode Kemp on 8 felony perjury counts.
Kemp -- who has filed a formal complaint with the State Bar of California -- claims Polonsky totally dropped the ball on her case, doing virtually nothing.
According to the docs, Kemp claims Polonsky was "unprofessional," showing up to court in "mini skirts [that were] too, too mini."
Kemp says in the complaint, "I was told and read that she was doing crack cocaine before Lamar Odom, after Lamar Odom, and she was my attorney during the time she was with Lamar Odom ..."
For the record, TMZ broke the story about Polonsky, and we never said she was doing crack. She claimed Lamar was smoking it while she was at work and sometimes in her presence.
Polonsky tells TMZ, "The results in the case speak for themselves." Polonsky says of the 8 criminal counts, 1 was dismissed outright, the jury found Kemp not guilty on 4 counts, and a mistrial was declared on the remaining 3 counts because the jury was hung. Yeah, it seems like a good outcome to us, too.
The State Bar will not comment.
Showdown Over Drugs
'The Last Straw'
10/4/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian had a nuclear confrontation with Lamar Odom that could be the last straw in their marriage ... TMZ has learned.
As TMZ first reported ... Lamar went to their Tarzana house Tuesday ... to pick up some clothes and speak with Khloe. Now we know what was said ... and what she found.
Sources connected with the couple tell TMZ ... Lamar told her he had been sober for 3 days and planned to stay sober on his own ... without going to rehab. We're told Khloe recoiled in anger, telling Lamar he was in denial and needed rehab. She also said she wanted nothing to do with him until he entered an inpatient program.
Our sources say at some point during the meeting, Khloe found a pipe with a stash that looked like crack in a baggie. It's not clear if she found it on his person or the clothes he was picking up from the house.
Sources close to Lamar tell us Khloe went ballistic, calling Lamar a "liar" and telling him, "I'm done with you." Khloe then threw him out of the house.
Our sources say Lamar seemed "out of it" during the meeting and even accused Khloe of stealing his stash.
As for the marriage ... we're told Khloe has "not done anything legal yet," but, as she put it, finding the stash "was the last straw."
I Can Kick Drugs W/O Rehab
10/3/2013 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom says he's been sober for 5 days ... and he believes he can maintain sobriety WITHOUT going to rehab.
Sources connected to the troubled BBaller tell TMZ ... Lamar believes in what he calls "self-healing" and says he has the willpower to kick his drug habit on his own.
Lamar says he's done it successfully before and is convinced he can do it again.
Toward that end, he is telling people he is removing certain "friends" from his life ... so he doesn't relapse.
Lamar says he's open to getting professional help, but only in private and not in a rehab facility. He has not yet committed to getting such help.
Lamar is very mindful of the fact that training camp has just started. Although he wants to save his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, our sources say his motivation for sobriety seems to be more focused on his basketball career. Lamar believes once he's achieved a level of sobriety, he can re-join a team.
TMZ broke the story ... Lamar had a devastating crack problem in addition to an addiction to other drugs, including cocaine. He was in rehab for 3 weeks a little more than a year ago before bailing.
10/1/2013 1:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom just showed up at the home he once shared with Khloe Kardashian, looking shockingly thin and haggard.
Lamar hasn't been seen for days ... but these are the first photos that show the dramatic weight loss and toll that drugs have taken on his body.
It appears he went to the Tarzana house to visit Khloe. Our sources say she had drawn a clear line in the sand -- get help or stay away.
Lamar has told several friends he believes self-help can do the trick -- kicking the drug problem. We're told Khloe is not buying it.

Khloe & Lamar's Anniversary
Marriage Is a Workout
9/27/2013 4:20 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Nothing says romance like a smelly locker room -- Khloe Kardashian is spending her 4th wedding anniversary sweating at the gym.
Khloe was just spotted cruising into an Equinox gym near her home, and wearing lightweight gloves -- maybe blowing off steam with some kickboxing or MMA fighting.
Photogs peppered Khloe with questions, including ... whether the rumors are true she's selling her house, is she getting divorced, and if she's giving Lamar Odom a second chance.
Considering they're not together on their anniversary ... it's safe to say chances are looking dim.
4:00 PM PT -- We just got this shot of Lamar cruising out of a Famima!! convenience store.
We're told LO stopped at the shop, near his downtown L.A. loft, around 8:30 AM Friday ... took a quick look at some snacks, but left without buying anything.
For Wedding Anniversary
9/27/2013 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Khloe Kardashian has made a HUGE decision -- she's dropped Lamar Odom ... or at least his last name ... from her Twitter account.
Khloe's account used to be labeled Khloe Kardashian Odom, but now when she tweets ... it only shows up as Khloe.
It can't be a coincidence -- today is her and Lamar's 4th wedding anniversary. Khloe also dropped "Odom" from her Instagram account last week.
Even though Lamar has big plans about what he'd like to do for the anniversary ... we're told it's not reciprocal.
