L&S: Lamar Odom has asked Khloe Kardashian for a ‘trial separation’

I’ve mentioned this a few times, but here we go again: I’m actually concerned about Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. While I think the tabloid reporting on the state of their marriage has gone overboard with trumped-out non-controversies, I do have a nagging suspicion that there’s some truth to the widespread split rumors. Life & Style has a new story this week about how Lamar has asked Khloe for a trial separation. I guess I should note that Gossip Cop has already claimed that L&S’s story is false, although even GC doesn’t have any named or unnamed sources willing to go on the record about the situation.

Life & Style can exclusively reveal that Khloé Kardashian’s husband of less than four years, Lamar Odom, has asked for a trial separation while he hits the road with the LA Clippers for two weeks of away games.

“He told Khloé he needs time to think and be away from her,” an insider shares in the new issue of Life & Style. “He feels completely smothered by her. He feels like he has lost a lot of himself in their marriage and being a part of the whole Kardashian machine, and he is over it.”

Lamar’s first night away was Jan. 28 — and he didn’t waste any time falling back into his bad habits. An insider says he was back to “partying and talking to other women,” just days into the break. In fact, an eyewitness tells Life & Style on Jan. 31 Lamar was grinding with a scantily clad brunette at Bloke & 4th in Toronto.

“They were into each other and majorly flirting,” a fellow clubgoer tells Life & Style. “At one point, Lamar sat down, took off his knit cap, and the woman was right there rubbing his head.”

On Jan. 30 — their second day apart — Khloé arrived two hours late to a Kardashian Kollection clothing campaign shoot.

“Khloé looked flustered and as if she’d been crying,” an on-set insider dishes to Life & Style. “She didn’t speak to anyone and went straight into hair and makeup. Her assistant came out and told staff that they needed to get her a glass of champagne. It was only 8 a.m.! Something was very wrong — and everyone was speculating it was because of Lamar.”

“Lamar just wants to be with his teammates and friends and let loose — he and Khloé were barely speaking when he left for his road games,” the insider adds. “I wouldn’t be surprised if he moved out after this separation. He is completely checked out.”

[From Life & Style]

Again, this FEELS like what’s really going on, doesn’t it? I feel like Lamar has truly “checked out” and that he’s “over” this whole Kardashian rollercoaster and that Khloe is trying desperately to save her marriage, and she’s slowly realizing that it can’t be saved. As for the continuous stories about Lamar “grinding” up on other women – those stories have been coming in steadily for months. I’m starting to believe them. Ugh. Poor Khloe! The only (Faux) Kardashian that I genuinely like.

    All the blogs have been saying the same thing for months about lamar. I think these 2 are dunzo. What do u expect from someone u only known for a month. Maybe next time khole will get to know someone before marring them.

    • Pixie says:

      Yet they’ve been married for 4 YEARS! It’s not a 72 day thing!

    • jwoolman says:

      It’s worse than that – I think he asked her to marry him after only two weeks, after another woman had rejected his marriage proposal just a few weeks earlier. They rushed to get married two weeks later in a huge wedding extravaganza because of the stupid tv show schedule, they needed a two-parter. Khloe and Lamar hadn’t even completed the pre-nup negotiations by wedding time. He ended up losing a good position on a team he loved as a result of all the show nonsense. She had him doing the stupidest thing for those stupid shows, can’t imagine that she thought that was a good way to build a real relationship. Kanye at least has the good sense to say no to the Kardashian circus. Every other Kardashian man has ended up “managed” by Mama Ten Percent and cast in the role of Kardashian Klown.

      • someone says:

        while i think their whole marriage is crazy, he could have said no at some point. she didn’t really make him do anything. he obliged and was more than willing to be a part of the fame machine that the kardashians had created. he loved the attention just as much.

      • Dani says:

        He lost the spot on the Lakers because they had the chance to get Steve Nash. Any team will let go of any member for Steve Nash. While Lamar is a good player, he isn’t stellar enough to keep a position with the Lakers forever.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        Dani, you are so completely and postiviely WRONG. Lamar was traded to Dallas LAST season where he had a horrid season after winning sixth man of the year with the Lakers. He was then traded to the Clippers this season, where he is a much better fit.
        Steve Nash was acquired this year by the Lakers. He is a PG, plays a completely different position than LO who is a PF, but can play all five positions.
        Nash was added to run the point, replace Fisher and institute a new system. He was acquired because of the Howard pickup, nothing to do with LO. It was a year later.
        Nash is not even leading the team in assists, that would be Kobe. Nash is 39 and looking old, had a broken leg and the Lakers with him are a losing mess.

      Run as far away from this douchebag fake fame whore family as fast as you can.

  2. Eleonor says:

    Sorry for Klohe, to me she is the more decent Kardashian.
    Sometimes even if you love the hell out of someone the story ends,you can do whatever it’s in your power to keep it alive, but if the other side is over it ends. It’s never easy, but it’s better to end it quickly, at least I’ve been there, trying to save a relationship. later I’ve understood it was better If I had the strenght to get out.

    • Dawn says:

      Decent? She is just like all of them. She does what mamam tells them and that has nothing to do with acting decent.
      She is just as bad as her two sisters, she just knows how to make herself seem less vapid. That’s all. I am sure mama will say NO to this until LaMar grows a new pair of balls since the KrapTrashians cut em off. Decent…haha!

  3. Ginger says:

    I like her as well in spite of myself (smh). I keep seeing the same headlines over and over that they are divorcing or separated. Where there’s fire there’s smoke so I’m sure there’s a grain of truth in there. It’s tough in a regular marriage, let alone one where the husband is traveling for work most of the year and the wife is so busy with her own work. I wish them the best.

  4. Launicaangelina says:

    It’s a sad thing. I can definitely see, from Lamar’s perspective, how enticing being part of the “Kardashian Machine” would be. Love, fame and fortune… but burn out is inevitable. I do believe they truly fell in love, though. I don’t think he hooked up with Khloe for fame only.

    Faux Kardashian! Love it and believe it.

  5. Nev says:

    I like them as a couple and I really enjoy Khloe…if he is grinding up on other women though..he’s gotta go!!!

  6. dorothy says:

    Hope this isn’t true. She seems to be the only Kardashian that hasn’t be robotized by Kris.

  7. Sam says:

    I don’t buy their relationship. Khloe always talks about how perfect it is and how much they love each other. Maybe a I’m a total cynic, but when somebody feels the need to constantly talk about how great something is, I feel like they’re compensating.

    • Mela says:

      Agree. Plus she got kind of annoying with talking about Kim’s divorce and bashing Kris H. in interviews and on the show. She tends to gravitate to pointing out issues in other people’s relationships and completely ignores her own.

      She’s still the most real and likable of the family, but she’s starting to push it.

  8. mel2 says:

    I feel for Khloe but when you marry an athlete you have to accept what goes on when they are on the road and women are constantly flirting and exposing everything to these athletes. I seen it with my own eyes. I hope they can save their marriage.

  9. G says:

    I hope this isn’t true.

    I also hope that Khloe and the her other siblings will soon define lives of their own outside of the Kris/Kim axis of evil.

  10. JL says:

    Oh NO!

    Why does it seems Khloe always gets the short end of the stick? Maybe it’s because she admits and owns her issues rather than covering up or discounting them.

    If I were Khloe and Lamar, I’d tell her family to go to hell, move far away and let that mess go.

  11. Lauren says:

    I genuinely like Khloe and I also like Lamar but i’ve been hearing some stuff about his 14 year old daughter suffering from depression and self harming herself. The girls mother is apparently the only parent who is really trying to get her help. I hope Lamar will step up and be there for his daughter as a father should be. I know it has little to do with the actual article but it irks me a bit that he would be giving the attention he should be giving to his wife but more importantly to his own daughter to other women instead.

  12. fabgrrl says:

    Before they throw in the towel, maybe they should try disengaging from the Kardashian machine. If they are really serious about trying to save their marriage it would be worth a try.

    I always figured that being married to a professional athlete would involve an “on the road” understanding.

  13. Jayna says:

    I love Khloe and this marriage had genuine love for quite a while, but it doesn’t mean it will last. He is a basketball player. Too many of them like the women available to them. She is so different from Kim. She is the most likeable of all of them.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      He just posted on his FB status how everything is lies and how much he loves Khloe. Sorry. I am a sports nut and saw it as I was scanning my feed. He must have known this story was coming out.

      I know about athletes, but you can’t lump everyone in there. I’m married to a musician and he’s got no trouble keeping his hands to himself…or myself, I should say. I guess I wil hear the standard, you married a “rock star” therefore he can’t be faithful either. Wrong. The thing that would worry me about Lamar is his past record, not his profession.

  14. ihatekim says:

    Khloe has always been very disrespectful- potty mouth; calling everyone names; freak; etc…and stupid immature “baby-talk” with Lamar- its embarrassing. She’s really not the likeable one. NONE of them are.
    They only knew eachother for amonth and yes been on that stupid reality show the whole time- that sux……

  15. babythastarsshinebrite says:

    Not getting pregnant may have been a blessing in disguise. If Lamar feels he’s losing himself to the Kardashian Machine he should talk to his wife about that, not leave her. If Lamar couldn’t be with his friends and let loose without leaving his wife well then he shouldn’t have got married in the first place. Celebrities getting married should be banned.

  16. TheOriginalKitten says:

    I like Khloe but if you don’t want to deal with shit like this then DON’T DATE AN ATHLETE. I’m not saying that to give Lamar a free pass for bad behavior, I realize that some athletes can keep it together but come on, the majority of them have wandering dongs.

    For the record, I bet it wasn’t Khloe so much as the Kartrash Klan that overwhelmed and suffocated him.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      Can you imagine being married into that? He knew, but to what extent after only a few weeks?

      • perspective says:

        I realize this blog isn’t part of the demographic but the mother of Lamar’s children is on a reality show called Starter Wives. She used the same language that L&S is using. She said their after their son died he ‘checked out’ then asked for a separation (well a break i guess since they weren’t married) and the next time she heard from him, he told her he was marrying Khloe. Lamar lacks character. I think he thought that marrying a Kardashian would get him traded to the Lakers and turn him into a superstar. If he’s over the Kardashians’ it’s because he got traded to Dallas (and we all saw how he handled that) not because of their antics.

  17. Dee Cee says:

    Get a clue Khloe.. your KKK family brand and you are hopelessly disgusting.

  18. Dani says:

    I really hope that if they are having problems and he really is behaving this way, that Khloe gets up and leaves. It would be a shame to see her end up like Vanessa Bryant – Kobe’s wife – married to a known cheater raising their kids alone while some days he loves her and the others he doesn’t.

  19. trtuhful says:

    I’ve been saying this since last year..

    Lamar has been doing his thing for a while…

    he does not want to be married anymore.

    getting pregnant will not solve anything.

  20. RobN says:

    She married a professional basketball player. Of course he is fooling around. Constantly on the road, constantly going out at night after games, if you marry one of these guys then you’d better be willing to accept that he’s not sitting in his hotel room alone and watching The Discovery Channel.

  21. Grace says:

    Khloe is the nicest one out of all of them. She needs to replace that douchebag with someone better.

    She should get a man to adopt kids with who will have a regular job and be able to enjoy the kids with her.

  22. erika says:

    Khloe! I truly am so very sorry. So, very, very sorry. I piss on your family so much, specially Kim (she just HAD to get pregnant right now didn’t she? Selfish bitch). Everyone here, all the gossip blogs, TV shows, etc, state it, you ARE our favorite.

    I feel like KK and her PimpMOM just pushed the whoring, TOO DAMN far! Kris J is like an overseas sweat shop, WORK WORK WORK! “I smack you across the fat rear if you don’t WHORE WHORE whore!”

    Happy Kris? So the Kardashian curse really has something to it. Do you think b****tch (yeah, I’m actually pissed off) you pushed your family too damn far?

    get off the F***king TV, bring in some privacy and start living like real people. maybe then your family can find some honest happiness.

  23. jess says:

    Sadly, a lot of marriages don’t survive fertility issues…

  24. Holden says:

    Who would want to be married into that mess? No one takes him seriously any more.

  25. janie says:

    I too love Khloe.. I feel so bad for her and what’s taking place. That family just destroys lives with no remorse at all. I don’t know how Kris sleeps at nite? Nothing is sacred or off limits to her with that family. Now they will all start ragging on Lamar, with no regard to her own daughters feelings or pain. The mere fact that the tramp Kim ‘accidently’ got pregnant knowing what Khloe had been thru is such a betrayel on so many levels, sickens me.
