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
11/7/2013 1:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
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.
Agrees to Anger Management

Lamar Odom just dodged a bullet -- he will NOT be prosecuted for damaging a photog's gear ... provided he keeps his nose clean and gets help with his anger issues.
TMZ has learned ... Lamar went to the L.A. City Attorney's Office Monday for an office hearing, along with his lawyer, Shawn Holley. A hearing officer told Lamar he would NOT be prosecuted for vandalism, provided that he pay for the damaged equipment. He was also told if he broke the law within a year's time from when the incident happened ... criminal charges would be filed.
Sources connected with Lamar tell TMZ ... he also agreed to get anger management counseling.

Porn Offers ROLLING IN
11/3/2013 2:01 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF
The sun was barely rising on Kendall Jenner's 18th birthday ... when the top porn companies started offering her lucrative deals ... including one for over a million bucks!
Kendall has been showing off her body for years ... and big sister Kim Kardashian became a household name after her sex-tape with Ray J was released.
And now that Kendall's legal, at least SIX COMPANIES are hoping they can convince her to get it on in front of the camera.
One of the companies -- Bangyoulater.com -- is saying it wants to pay K.J. and a partner of her choosing $1.8 MILLION to bump uglies.
Other interested parties include Brazzers, Babes and Digital Playground ... the latter offering the option of a girl-girl encounter with porn star Jesse Jane.
No word on whether Kendall plans to take any seriously.
Considering Kim barely acknowledges her porn past ... were guessing, no.
I Can Do Porn
11/3/2013 12:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We're not saying she's going to, but Kendall Jenner can totally do porn now if she wants -- because today marks the reality star's 18th birthday.
Which brings us to our list of other awesome things she can do now that she's 100% legal:
1) Buy cigarettes
4) Get a tattoo
5) Enlist in the military
6) Buy a gun
7) Get tried as an adult
Unfortunately, the one thing she still can't do is drink alcohol ... at least in the U.S. of A.
Lana Del Rey
I Did NOT Reject Kanye's Proposal
... to Perform at Proposal
11/2/2013 6:50 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lana Del Ray NEVER told Kanye West she wouldn't perform during his proposal to Kim Kardashian ... but it does sounds like she said no to someone else.
Lana was heading into the Sunset Marquis in Hollywood last night when we asked about reports saying she turned Yeezy down.
L.D.R. quickly shot the rumors down saying, "I would never deny HIS request" ... but wouldn't say much more.
Conspiracy theory #1 -- Lana was offended Kanye didn't personally reach out.
Conspiracy theory #2 -- Momager Kris Jenner reached out to make it part of the TV show ... and Lana wasn't having it.
Got your own theory? Sound off in the comments.
At Beacher's Madhouse
11/1/2013 8:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom was drunk -- very drunk -- at Beacher's Madhouse in Hollywood Wednesday night ... eyewitnesses tell TMZ -- and it's a dramatic, depressing turn in his life.
People who were present tell us ... Lamar showed up with several guys. In short order Lamar was hanging at the bar doing shots of Patron. For the next 3 hours, Lamar could not be seen without a glass of champagne.
Our sources say he was "hammered." One witness -- who knows the difference -- says Lamar didn't seem like he was on drugs. It appeared to be alcohol-fueled.
Lamar stayed until closing at 2 AM. By 2:30 AM he was in the valet area talking about where to go for the "after party."
Lamar claims he's been clean for the last few weeks. Khloe Kardashian even invited him to a Kanye West concert earlier in the week as a show of support, although we're told she's already decided to divorce him.
Kim, Kanye SUE
How DARE You Leak Our Proposal Video!
10/31/2013 5:00 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West think private events at major baseball stadiums should stay private ... and that's why they're suing the guy who allegedly leaked Kanye's precious, private proposal to a video-sharing site.
In the lawsuit ... obtained by TMZ ... their lawyer, Eric George, trashes Chad Hurley, the guy who co-founded YouTube and sold it to Google for $1.65 billion. Kim and Kanye claim Hurley is the one who schemed to post the video on his new Internet venture, MixBit.
K & K go for the jugular, saying Hurley was desperate to find a "second act," after 2 flops following his YouTube sale. In the lawsuit, Kim and Kanye claim Hurley wasn't even invited to AT&T Park in San Fran but manipulated his way in.
Kim and Kanye say they let him stay, but only after he signed a confidentiality agreement. And get this ... they even got him to take a pic holding the signed confidentiality agreement, which is attached to the lawsuit (below).
The couple say, "Hurley proceeded to try to turn the event into one starring himself, broadcasting the images he knew were the exclusive property rights of someone else."
Specifically, Kim and Kanye say he posted Kanye's engagement proposal on MixBit and tweeted it to nearly a million followers. He then had the audacity to issue a press release, touting his video trophy.
Kim and Kanye are suing for unspecified damages ... including punitives. Even though Kim and Kanye don't say how much the video was worth, they mention it was destined for MC Cable Television, which is an arm of Bunim/Murray and E!, which produces and broadcasts "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
Honey Boo Boo'd
10/31/2013 3:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Just when you thought Halloween couldn't get any scarier -- Honey Boo Boo and her family decked themselves out like the Kardashian clan ... and the costumes were so convincing, we still can't tell them apart from the real thing.
The photo was snapped today outside the Thompson family house in Georgia, and here's the breakdown:
- Honey Boo Boo is Kris (nailed it)
- Sugar Bear is Bruce (nailed it)
- Pumpkin is Scott Disick (double nailed it)
- Anna & Jessica are Kourtney and Khloe (eh)
But the best costume? That honor goes to ... Mama June as Kim. Seriously. Dead ringer.
BTW ... Uncle Poodle ... also Kim.
Kanye isn't pictured for obvious reasons.
Preggo Media Coverage
'HURT MY SOUL'
10/31/2013 6:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Kim Kardashian says the negative media coverage surrounding her pregnancy "HURT MY SOUL" ... and now she says she's going to live a "more private life" because of it.
Look, Kim definitely has a point -- some people were downright mean when she was knocked up (we can recall a tabloid headline that read, "Kim Can't Stop Eating!")
But when Kim went on "The Tonight Show" last night and told Jay Leno that she was so affected by the negative criticism of her pregnancy that she'll be taking the fame-whoring down a notch, we weren't exactly convinced.
Exhibit A -- the butt-selfie
Exhibit B -- the baseball stadium wedding proposal
Exhibit C -- THE 15 CARAT DIAMOND RING!
Then again, we could be wrong. You buyin' it?
Lamar Odom May Have Burned His Lakers Bridge
10/30/2013 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Lamar Odom may have ruined his chances of EVER returning to his beloved Los Angeles Lakers ... so says his ex coach and NBA legend Phil Jackson.
Jackson didn't mince words to TMZ when we asked if he thought Lamar would ever return to the purple and gold. He said, "I think that bridge might have been burned."
In case you didn't know, Phil is pretty tight with Lakers execs -- he lives with team Prez Jeanie Buss.
And this is interesting. Phil tells us ... he's not blaming the Kardashian family for Lamar's woes, despite a recent interview in which he hinted that Lamar would have been better off without the K-fam.
He says although the reality show was "a distraction" for Lamar, there's a benefit that outweighed the negative -- "Lamar got a family and a caring unit."
He also said he worries that Bruce Jenner is out of the picture ... because Lamar related to him as an athlete.
As for what caused Lamar to unravel, Jackson said he's been dealing with "too many personal things," although he was not specific.
He WAS With Khloe
But They're NOT Back Together
10/29/2013 11:48 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
We've just confirmed ... Lamar Odom WAS with Khloe Kardashian last night at Kanye West's concert ... but sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ ... she is NOT reconciling with him.
We're told the reason Lamar was invited ... he's been clean and sober for several weeks and the Kardashians are "supporting his recovery and wanted him to have a good time."
Lamar showed up by himself, but joined Khloe inside Staples for the concert. We've also confirmed Bruce Jenner was also there. Kris Jenner was there as well, and she hung out with Bruce -- but again, they're not back together either.
Bruce brought his sons, Brody and Brandon.
We're told Kim engineered the family reunion.
