Khloé ‘prepared to forgive Lamar’
Khloé Kardashian’s friends and family are reportedly worried she is in denial about her husband Lamar Odom’s problems.
The reality TV star and her basketball player spouse Lamar Odom have been plunged into scandal over the last few weeks, starting with allegations he had been unfaithful with at least two women.
Reports about Lamar’s supposed drug use then emerged, with varied claims he is hooked on crack cocaine, Oxycontin and Ambien.
On Friday Lamar was arrested and later bailed for DUI in California. He was reported to be obviously under the influence of something and refused to take chemical tests.
Khloé’s family are apparently becoming increasingly concerned, not least because she still has hopes they can mend their marriage.
“Khloé seems to be in denial. She believes that if he gets sober they can still be together,” an insider told British magazine Heat.
“They’ve been in counselling for months - Khloé says she can turn a blind eye to any cheating if he gets clean. But because of all the stress, she’s not eating.”
The TV star is widely thought to have known about her spouse’s issues for some time, but chose not to confide in her family.
Her sister Kim has been a shoulder for her to cry on, but believes her sibling needs to be firmer with her husband. Kim famously filed for divorce from her husband Kris Humphries after 72 days and doesn’t want Khloé to go through the public pain she did.
“If anyone understands what Khloé’s going through it’s Kim. She’s been through rough patches with her boyfriend Kanye [West] and her own divorce from Kris Humphries this year. She hates seeing Khloé like this,” the insider said. “Kim’s advised her that if she’s going to give Lamar another chance, it needs to be the final one. Although she knows that Khloé’s hurting and is embarrassed that this is happening so publicly, she feels it might be better to call it a day, like she did with Kris.”
Khloé’s mother Kris Jenner is also her manager and is said to have hired “crisis publicists” in an effort to ease the situation.
Meanwhile, it has been alleged that Lamar spent $50,000 on cocaine in the space of three years.
A man claiming to be Lamar’s New York City drug dealer has given an interview to RadarOnline in which he alleges the sportsman freebases cocaine – which is when the illicit substance is heated and the vapour inhaled.
The unidentified person also claims Lamar once smoked the substance before an important LA Clippers game in New York.
“He likes to party,” the man claims. “He’s a pretty nice guy to be honest with you, but he’s becoming… his problem seems to be becoming a bigger problem. In my experience, he literally likes cocaine - he is a cocaine guy. He likes to smoke it.”
