Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom’s marriage is reportedly in “crisis”

Over the weekend, CB and I ended up emailing about the Lamar Odom situation – he was sent down the “D league” – the NBA Developmental League. This was after he took some time off because of – his excuse – “family reasons.” Anyway, CB and I were trying to figure out what this meant, and considering we don’t really know anything about sports, it was like the blind leading the blind. Her dad tried to explain it to her, and then she tried to explain it to me – it was a mess. From what I understand, Lamar was temporarily dropped from the Dallas Mavericks, but he was still receiving his salary ($8.9 million a year), and he has the support of Mavericks owner Mark Cuban, who has stressed in interviews that Lamar “is doing great. D-League is rehab. [He] needs to get in great shape and then rejoin the Mavs… Things are going great. He is working super hard. All is good.” As it turns out, this D-league demotion really was a temp thing – he was only dropped for one day, one game, on Friday. Then he was back with the Mavs on Saturday, when they won against the Utah Jazz. Still, it must be embarrassing for Lamar – he was considered one of the best NBA players when he was with the Lakers, and now he’s getting sent, however temporarily, to the D-league? Rough.

Plus, Lamar actually does have some family drama. His dad’s health isn’t great, there are rumors that he and Khloe kind of hate it in Dallas, and Khloe is still struggling to get pregnant after more than two years of marriage. Life & Style reports this week that all of the drama is taking its toll on their marriage:

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have hit a very rough patch in their marriage. The reality TV star is reportedly “not happy” in Dallas and their relationship is in “crisis.”

“The situation in Dallas is not good,” a friend tells Life & Style. “He is not happy and Khloe isn’t either.”

The biggest stresses in their marriage have been their failed attempts to have a baby and Lamar’s trade from the Lakers to the Mavericks. Recently, Lamar was absent from several games to deal with a family issue.

Meanwhile, Khloe has also been very jealous that Kim Kardashian and Kourtney Kardashian are getting so much closer.

“Khloe is sad an jealous to see Kourtney and Kim getting so close,” a source adds. “She misses her family and friends terribly.”

Although these two have hit a major low in their marriage, a friend says these two “love each other” and will do everything they can to “make things better.”

After all of the drama and insults and famewhoring, at the end of the day, I do kind of love Khloe. I can’t help it! Don’t yell at me. I want Lamar and Khloe to work through their stuff and come out stronger. And yes, I want her to have a baby. That’s what she wants, and that’s what Lamar wants too. Sometimes you just have a bad year, and sometimes it’s just a bad streak that can turn around just as quickly as it began. I really am hoping that Khloe and Lamar are just fine.

    Maybe it’s the third party….the ever present kamera.

  2. Astrid says:

    The best to both of them.

  3. mel2 says:

    Good summary of what happened with Lamar’s NBA drama,you guys were right on point.

    Now as far as Lamar and Khloe, Khloe needs to try accupuncture as Mariah and Celine did to get pregnant. When we were laughing about Mariah and her weight gain, she was probably taking hormone injections to conceive and it worked. Good luck to the both of them. I actually like them as a couple.

  4. Madrid says:

    She has reasons to be pissed off but this is her best chance to be more real and mature.

  5. Jayna says:

    I love Khloe. I read that the team management was tryng to be understanding, that he did really have a personal issue to attend to and used the father’s illness as a cover. I read she miscarried.

  6. ZaZa says:

    Love Khloe n LamLam. Wish them all the best

  7. Hautie says:

    From the chatter around Dallas is Lamar is still p*ssed/ego bruised that he got dump from the Lakers.

    That his head is not in the game. And that he is half ass performing for the Mavericks.

    So to get his attention… the Mavericks made the public announcement that they were demoting him.

    What ever self created drama Lamar had made for him self. Getting demoted. Publicly. Got his attention.

    And he never had to play a public game for the d-league. But the threat of it is there.

    And Dallas and all its crazy media, have been very kind to Khloe and Lamar. So it is not as if they are having to fade a bunch of hate fill crap that follows them around LA.

  8. Michelle says:

    He should have spent the time during the lock out working on his game and getting in shape. Instead he filmed his reality show. Notice Kris Humprhies and all that time he spent getting shape during KK Take NY? He is actually having a good season. Lamar got spoiled by being a Laker and should have worked harder during the off season.

  9. Agnes says:

    i like khloe. i hope they work stuff out.

  10. Fyofeelings says:

    First off Lamar is a role player he’s good but definitely not one of the best players in the league.

    I think his problem is/was that he took it to personally it was a business move but no he had to get in his feelings and take it to another level thats why his ass is in Dallas instead of LA.

  11. jwoolman says:

    They need to just turn off the cameras and learn to live privately. Khloe can always get her camera fix visiting her krazy kinfolk, although we can always hope the cameras dim for them soon.

    People seem to like Khloe, but she’s really her mother’s daughter – still way too self-absorbed and manipulative. She’s a real saboteur when it comes to other people’s relationships. But maybe she’s capable of maturing in a better direction if she can just get off-camera long enough. She would have be benefitted from college, far far away from Mama Ten Percent. Khloe has a brain and needs to find more satisfying things to use it on than the silly games they play on their shows.

    Hope she didn’t miscarry, though. Hope even more that if she did, it doesn’t become an episode on that #%!?# tv show.

  12. Ogechi says:

    No relationship is perfect but I so hope this story isn’t true. I do love the Kardashian but Kim is my favorite.

  13. fabgrrl says:

    If your marriage is in crisis, then stop f’ing talking to the media about it and start talking to each other!!!

    • Carolyn says:

      Well…there’s nothing else Mama Pimp Kris can generate at the moment PR-wise…everyone’s over Kim, Kourtney isn’t interesting until she has The Baby and one of the girls tried a bikini shoot. Zzzzz. In desperation she pulled out the Khloe & Lamar marriage trouble storyline. Again. Zzzzzzz. The two of them would gain so much respect by turning their backs on this sham of a reality series and shutting off the cameras. Why do they continue to be a part of this scripted nonsens?

  14. bee says:

    This is a non-story. It is very easy for tabloids to “create” stories. It is no secret that Lamar Odom was shocked and upset about being traded. Lamara has been living in Los Angeles for years. Khloe has never lived away from her family or Los Angeles. Their marriage is not in trouble.

  15. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I like Khloe too. I don’t think Lamar Odom was ever considered one of the best players though. I mean, he was solid but there is just so much talent in the NBA. Comparatively, he’s not one of the best.
    I can imagine LA to Dallas is a tough transition, especially if everything you have known is in LA. Wish her and Lamar a lot of luck!

  16. Rhiley says:

    This is kind of a nasty thing to say but I have said it before and it is still my take on their relationship: I think Khloe loves Lamar, but she loves LA and her LA lifestyle even more. The comments stating Lamar was not one of the best players in the NBA are on point. He can be good off the bench but he isn’t consistent at all. So one night he may score 15 points but the next 3 nights his shot will be cold and he will be in foul trouble. So the fact that Lamar was traded was no surprise and I felt like Khloe acted a little like a spoiled brat when he was traded. She kind of had this attitude like “I can’t believe my mom and Ryan Seacrest couldn’t keep us in LA.” Now Lamar will likely finish the season out in Dallas but will be traded next season, probably to some midwestern city. Khloe will never follow him to the midwest. While I hope Khloe will one day have children, I think it is kind of a good thing that she and Lamar do not have them right now. Too much is up in the air (and it ain’t Lamar doing a dunk a from the center of the court).

    • iseepinkelefants says:

      I would love to see if he gets traded to some place like Wisonsin (don’t know NBA) and see if she follows him. My guess is no. All these Kardashian chicks are the same, selfish to the core. Whine, whine I don’t live in LA anymore and get papped on the daily.

      I used to think Khloe was different but seeing that jealous side to her on that sh-t show with Humphries proves she’s nastier than her sisters (more cutting), she’s just better at hiding it.

  17. aenflex says:

    Lamar is so damn sexy. I would love to pick up her sloppy seconds. Whenever he gets tired of being married to this mannish woman.

  18. Aiobhan says:

    Khloe is my favorite out of that entire stank family. I really hope that they are going to make it through this- if they are having problems. I wonder if they are trying so hard to have a child that the stress from not getting pregnant is keeping her from getting pregnant.

  19. Hubbahun says:

    I too love Khloe – she actually has a sense of reality unlike the rest of her family and I LOVE her and Lamar – they seem genuinely in love and I hope things get better for them.

  20. nikzilla37 says:

    I feel for them both. They are rich though so I don’t feel that bad.

  21. Diva says:

    I don’t feel bad for either one of them. They are both famewhores. Before Lamar was with Khloe he was trying to get engaged to Taraji P. Henson when she was nominated for the Oscar in 2009. Taraji didn’t go for it. He just found his match in Khloe cause she’s wanted the fame just as bad as him.

  22. ladybert62 says:

    Sounds to me like the desperation for a baby is : “we can save this marriage by having a baby” – not a new idea but still a bad one.

    • Jenny says:

      That was my first thought. Even my friends tell me that I should have a bandaid baby to fix my marital problems. But I won’t do that..

      • anon33 says:

        JESUS CHRIST those women are stupider than hell. Jenny you are correct to stand your ground and not listen to them!!

        A baby when you are having problems only makes things worse. The man may choose to stay out of guilt, but you can be damn sure he will resent you and the child for the rest of his life. I have seen this exact situation play out for so many women I know, and they always end up alone.

        Not to mention that a baby is a human being who you will have to raise for 18 years if not longer, not some chess piece in a relationship game!!!


    • the original bellaluna says:

      Not sure I agree – they’ve been open about wanting a baby practically from the get.

      But we are in agreement that a “band-aid baby” is NEVER the solution.

      • jelynn says:

        Exactly. They’ve always wanted kids. And having occupational and pregnancy issues doesn’t mean your marriage is in trouble. It means you’re dealing with real life. I want these guys to work and I think they will. For a while anyway.

  23. JustBored says:

    He now loves the limelight more than he loves basketball. He has been sulking like a kid since he got traded. Having a kid now is probably not the best thing for the both of them. She fell in “love” with a star basketball player and he fell in “love” with a reality star. Lamar was looking for a chance to be in the limelight. I am not saying they don’t have feelings for each other but love nah.

    Who remembers when he was briefly “engaged” to Taraji Henson when she was in the running for and Oscar? No One, oh well blink and you would have missed it. She may be the attention whore with the best personality out of the KKK Klan but one none the less and so is Lamar.

    Better get your game up Lamar, because a D league basketball player and a fading reality star will not make it. Kris won’t have that at all.

  24. mymy says:

    If you compare her to her trashy family she comes out slightly ahead. And do mean slightly.

  25. Nev says:

    I hope they are okay….love love love Khloe!!!

  26. Shelly says:

    I love Khloe!!! I live in Dallas, and she is hosting an event at the House of Blues here tonight, and I have meet & greet access, so I will get to meet her! I will report back what she was like, lol! ;)

  27. LeeLoo says:

    Hopefully they are committed to working out their problems. As long as they are able to do that then they should be fine.

  28. dena says:

    I *love* that sweater she’s wearing in Pic 2. Dammit.

  29. skuddles says:

    They seem to have too much stress in their lives right now – I think they need a long, romantic vacation….

  30. lileneboheme says:

    Lamar’s dad said he only had a stomachache so he’s doing fine…Lamar’s just missing the celebrity life of L.A. He needs to get a grip and step up his game.

  31. Kim says:

    No duh! The minute he isnt on an A list team and making millions shes ready to dump him. Shes a money grubbing scum bag.

  32. JessSaysNo says:

    What a couple of spoiled rotten freaks! I’m SO SORRY your 8 million dollar contract with the Mavs is requiring you to live in luxury in Dallas. Wow…must be a SHITHOLE!

    Get over it! I can’t believe they have the audacity to bitch about being “unhappy” with their life. People are homeless/starving/losing their homes!

    Lamar has turned from a good seeming person to just another Kardashian douchebag. Seriously they need STFU and get some gratitude for their wholly undeserved and incredible lot in life.

    • iseepinkelefants says:

      That’s what annoys me too. They’re whining like Dallas is a tiny sh-thole and they’re living in the sticks. Plenty of famous people have homes in Dallas, of course the difference is that many of them get homes there because they DON’T want cameras around them 24/7.

      And I’m sure when Mark Cuban got a hold of Lamar he did everything in his power to placate him (as any owner would do with a big name), throwing your toys out the pram while people are doing everything possible to make you happy makes you look like a twat. I used to think he was too good for the Kardashian family (hell Satan himself would be too good for that clan), but he’s proven he fits right in.

      Does he not realize he’s old and moving in to washed up territory? He can either find another hobby or sulk, and then yes I’m sure their marriage will really be over. Because let’s face it getting old as an athlete makes or breaks you. These guys only know one thing and when they hit middle age they don’t know what to do with theselves. Lamar should talk to Bruce maybe he can give him some pointers on what it’s like to be a once great athlete.

  33. Barbara says:

    I too am a Khloe fan. They can dump the whole rest of the family in the Pacific. The others don’t treat her well I think.

  34. the original bellaluna says:

    To me, Khloe is the most tolerable of the K’s. I’ve been through a miscarriage; I’ve also believed I could no longer have children and was then blessed with my “Surprise!” baby after almost 10 years with hubs.

    It’s a very big strain on a relationship. I wish them the best. They truly seem to love one another, and I hope they stay strong together.

  35. Orange Cone says:

    i’m sorry, but why have babies when he’s already has a few that he’s not really there for? I understand wanting your own child, but it seems like a baby-bandage?

  36. Moreaces says:

    Hasn’t his team benched him, these vampire KarCasheans, need a man that will keep them in the lime light,, to hell with love

  37. Kristin says:

    Why the fkcu does anyone like her? I hate how all the people are like “oh Khloe! You’re just not like the rest of them!” Wtf has she done or contributed to society to make people like her so much??

    • AB says:

      Spot on – I liked her initially but she comes across as a bully when she decides she doesn’t like someone and she is rude…stopped watching her show after the embarrassing ‘sex swing’ episode.

      • PrettyP says:

        Khloe is not as fantastic a person as ppl try to make her out to be. Her deeply jealous reaction when Kim was getting married, amd her obvious discomfort that her sister got the one thing she had on her showed how deeply bitchy, aggressive and hateful she really is. She is not a happy person. She only mellows when she is around Lamar when she begins to talk in that whiny, annoying ‘baby voice’ of hers. How he stands it is beyond me.and she is only like that ‘cos she desperately needs to hang on to Lamar for reasons best known to her. She is really hateful and not a warm person at all. She is also pretty vulgar and insecure. Kim might not be a prize but face it, Khloe can’t compete with that beauty and her success and it eats her alive.

  38. midnightmoon says:

    the Oracle of all gossip columnists Ted C. constantly mentions a celeb who can’t get preggers due to early on sex practices that had a very bad effect on their reproductive system. they’ve been getting her checked out for two years. i don’t think she’s gonna get pregnant. they have ALL KINDS OF MOOLAH, and unless there is a miracle child (looking at YOU, Beyonce!) not happenin’. Khloe, to me, is lovely, not really beautiful, just very pretty. if she wasn’t from that disgusting family, i’d adore her. but she is spoiled rotten, and she is very young, and thinks she knows alla that, and i think once she hits her 30s, she’ll prove her mettle. spoiled, though, just spoiled. too bad. if there WAS a god, first lightning strike would be on ‘mothers’ like Kris. yoiks. now SHE is someone i can hate with absolutely no questions asked.

  39. Dirty Martini says:

    Dallasite here. Despite the fact that LO acted liked a total douche when Dallas beat LA in the playoffs, we were actually kind of happy to get him in the trade. He came, apologized nicely, and just plain hasnt gelled. But we are still being realtively nice to him and giving him the opportunity to get it together. patience is gonna start wearing thin here, with all this “he hates Dallas crap”.

    Mavs won the championship last year, kicked LAs butt, kicked Miami’s butt, and showed America what a true team of gentlemn could do. No showboating, no egos, no drama. just good guys and a love of the game and each other.

    And they welcomed you LO. So pull your head out of you @$$.

  40. Violet says:

    I wish them well, but they need to learn to prioritize better or their marriage isn’t going to survive all this pressure they’re under.

    They should quit the reality show, avoid Khloe’s toxic family and focus on their new life in Dallas. Maybe see a marriage counselor to help them deal with all the stress.

    And Lamar needs to stay out of the private rooms of strip clubs!

  41. Syko says:

    You have to know, if you are a professional athlete, that you will probably not live your entire career in one city. That’s what happens. Even the greats get moved around, and from what I understand, Lamar is not one of the greats.

    So, since moving is a fact of your career, quit whining. Bloom where you’re planted. Dallas is a lovely city with a lot going on. Get to know it. Pro sports don’t last that long, you’ll be back in Smogland soon enough. Enjoy the chance to live in several great cities and learn the ins and outs of each one.

    In other words, grow up.

  42. ??? says:

    Lamar has lost a LOT of weight. Could a little drug problem be why he’s acting so strange?

  43. Dredz says:

    What?! I didn’t know Lamar was dating Taraji P. Henson before!!! Actually they both made more sense than him and Khloe. Taraji seems like a nice lady and they both have kids from previous relationship, do they? What a pity it didn’t work out, I guess Taraji must have been the one pulling out.
