Khloe Kardashian tells Lamar Odom to go to rehab or move out

Khloe Kardashian was active on social media following her husband’s arrest for DUI on Friday. Khloe tweeted SundayAs much as I wish I were made of steel… I’m not” but then tried to lighten it up by addingI’m pretty damn close to it though hehe.” She also posted a couple of selfies, presumably to show that she’s doing and looking fine. She was probably trying to boost her spirits with some positive attention too. I guess I can’t blame her given everything she’s gone through. (Sidenote: I really need to know the brand of the false eyelashes she uses. Those are gorg.)

On Labor Day Khloe attended what looks like an awesome party at Katy Perry’s house. Photos of her yesterday show that she’s still wearing her ring. For what it’s worth Lamar is still wearing his ring too, so maybe that means he’s trying to keep up appearances or maybe he wants to make his marriage to Khloe work. That would involve giving up all his side pieces, but Khloe isn’t really focusing on that aspect of her marital problems. In a semi-official statement to E!, the Kardashian camp says that they’re urging Lamar “to seek treatment.” TMZ takes it a step further and claims Khloe has told Lamar that he needs to go to rehab or move out for good. He’s been staying in hotels for months but I think that Khloe wants him to take a firm stand on the issue. TMZ also adds the detail that Lamar didn’t even tell Khloe when he got a DUI. She found out through TMZ like everyone else. Here’s more:

A source told E! News exclusively that “Khloé and the family are urging Lamar to seek treatment.”

“Khloé has been trying so, so hard to keep him from hitting a bottom like this,” the source added. “But if this is what needed to happen, then this is what needed to happen.”

The E! star has been focused on “getting Lamar better,” the source explained, but is hoping the recent arrest “will be his wake-up call.” – From E!

Khloe Kardashian has given Lamar Odom an ultimatum — get help or get an apartment.

Our well-placed sources say Khloe has laid down the law — Lamar can’t live at home until he completes rehab — which he’s been unwilling to do since his addiction spun out of control.

Khloe has kicked Lamar out before, but we’re told this time she’s vowing not to fold … and Friday’s DUI bust was the last straw. Our sources say Lamar didn’t call Khloe or his lawyers after the arrest. They found out when TMZ broke the story hours later. Khloe was pissed.

Khloe and Lamar did spend time together Saturday at their home — but Lamar was sent on his merry way after 4 hours of jawboning about his addiction to crack and other drugs.

As one source said … they’re still at an impasse and the prospects of saving their marriage are “grim.” – From TMZ

[From E! and TMZ]

I’m not really knowledgeable about basketball and it’s too early to call my dad and quiz him on Lamar’s career, but Lamar’s career is pretty much over, right? Is it possible that he could have somewhat of a comeback if he focused on staying sober and keeping his head in the game? Whether or not he chooses to stay with Khloe he should probably get treatment. He did drive wasted. Even if Lamar doesn’t think he needs rehab, it would send the message that he’s serious about his career. As for Khloe, her husband cheated on her with multiple women. It’s not all about whatever drugs he was on. It sounds like she loves him and is making excuses for him, though. Rehab isn’t going to save her marriage.

After I wrote all that, a new alleged interview with Lamar’s drug dealer was published on Radar Online. The dealer spoke anonymously although he gave Radar photos to prove his connection to Lamar. The dealer is based out of New York and claimed that Lamar regularly came to NY to do drugs. He claims to have once witnessed Lamar smoke $16,000 worth of cocaine (freebased, not crack) in a single setting before a basketball game. Lamar’s team, the Clippers, beat the NY Knicks in that game with Lamar scoring two points. Also, Lamar supposedly thinks “he can kick this on his own. It’s very hard for him to admit that he needs help.

Khloe and Lamar are shown out separately on 8-31-13. Other photos from Instagram

    This is very sad. The romantic in me was hoping true love would win, but the pragmatist in me says this is why you date someone for a long time prior to engagement and a wedding.

    • Lex says:

      ….and don’t ever marry anyone who has ever done drugs or anything at all?
      That’s not really practical!
      She could have known him for years and this still probably would have happened. ‘Knowing’ someone doesn’t guarantee their future behaviour.

      • yuck says:

        A better question is, how do you live a “real” married life and have NO IDEA this is going on? This “marriage” is as much a sham as everything else in Kardashian-World. Or maybe she did know and was unable to convince him to go to rehab. Again, a sham. These people need to get off TV and sort themselves out.

      • Hakura says:

        @yuck – A lot of people can live ‘real’ married life, & still hide things from their wife/husband. Especially if one or both of them travel a lot.

        I’m not saying this applies to Khloe specifically, but for a lot of people in similar situations, they can go into some serious denial (which can be them trying to ‘defend themselves’ from the unpleasant reality, & the pain that would come w/it).

        Khloe has always had self esteem issues, & seemed to be happy w/Lamar. Maybe she just kept convincing herself that things weren’t happening, or she kept believing him when he said he’d stop. Either way, sad story. =<

      • nicegirl says:

        @yuck – this may be stupid to reveal ‘publicly’, but this actually happened to me. I was with someone for 7 years, HAD A KID WITH HIM, and he was on drugs for at least a few years at the end. I did not know until I found the drugs when he had come home from his job late (he was a bartender) and did not hide them. For years, I truly thought he was sad, with deep depression, lots of childhood and family problems, and only an alcoholic who worked at a bar, which ‘explained’ to me why he would sleep all day, act weird, etc. He cheated on me repeatedly too, and I thought THAT was the real problem, together with alcohol (he only cheats on me when he’s drunk, or when he is drunk and I am at work, or when some woman entices him, etc.) so when I finally found the drugs (and discovered the truth of the depth of his deception), it made soooo much sense. That was about a decade ago, but this guy still has addiction and drug issues, never attended rehab, and has ‘hidden’ it from his parents and others . . . I can kind of understand how it happens – if you don’t WANT to SEE, you won’t, in a way.

        As to why I did not figure it out re:heavy drug use (he as smoking meth or speed or whatever, when I found it, it looked like parchment colored rock candy, I will never forget it. I thought to myself,”if our son had found this, he would have EATEN IT”, so I kicked him out and moved to a new place as well), there was so much cheating, I was DEFINITELY pulling a Cleopatra (QUEEN OF DENIAL) for years about him, because I think the truth was so sad to really feel, but it hurt like nothing I had ever felt before (we had a 4 yr old).

        I feel for Khloe. I did not have a Kardashian relationship whatsoever, and had the wool over my eyes for quite some time. If Lamar is on drugs, I sure hope he gets healthy. I hate what drugs do to love, life, and family.

      • Pandy says:

        @nicegirl. It’s easy to not see – you were in love, wanted to keep your family together …. good for you for moving onwards and upwards.

  2. Lulu86 says:

    i always use to cringe and think Khloe was out of line for they way she treated her sisters partners,so harsh and disrespectful .i had a sneaky feeling that she was going to have a spectacular public split.#KARMA

    • Toot says:

      Exactly! I remember Khloe hitting Scott and just being an ass, I know Scott had his supposed issues, but Khloe should have been focusing on Lamar. She was also a major b to Kris, and I didn’t like him either.

    • emmie_a says:

      I don’t watch the show but I don’t think you can take how she acts on the show and translate that into how she is in real life because that show is almost 100% fake/scripted.

      As for somewhat gloating over her bad luck, that’s just low.

      • Lulu86 says:

        i am not gloating, i don’t know her personally enough to gloat. I am simply saying that how she treated her sisters partners was appalling and one should always be careful how they treat others cause it will surely come back to bite you.

      • TG says:

        I believe you can judge Khloe and the others based on the show because they are claiming it to be reality and since most of them don’t show themselves in the best light they can only expect us to assume they aren’t good people. Kim shows herself to be extremely vain and self-important and completely dependent upon mommy dearest (PMK) to tell her what to do. In further proof that Kim is vain and full of herself and a famewhore I saw a video of her 14th birthday and she was preening in front of the camera and saying how she would be famous one day and she kept shoving other people out of the frame to get her face in there and keep talking so she hasn’t changed a bit from her real life character. PMK shows herself to be sickly in love with her Prized Pig and the others are just afterthoughts. On one of the episodes Scott and the others are helping set up a nursery in the Jenner house for the Prized Pig and Khourtny is upset and PMK says she is just jealous now that she will no longer be getting attention and the smirk PMK gave was disgusting. Even if it was true that Khourt was a little jealous a mom isn’t supposed to be smirking at her daughters feelings. So I agree with the commenter who stated that Khloe shouldn’t have been so judgemental of the others since she seems to be in a worse situation or at least just as bad.

  3. Sandy says:

    I don’t know how much coke costs in the States, but in Canada that’s close to the price of a kilo. Can a person really do that much in one sitting without going into cardiac arrest? Unsurprisingly, a coke dealer is talking shady sh*t…

    • LadyMTL says:

      That’s what I was thinking, lol. The only explanation I can come up with is that the stuff must have been super-uber high grade or he didn’t actually do it all in one sitting.

      • Sandy says:

        LadyMTL, I agree. He can afford the really good stuff and could have been at it for hours…but before a game? He’d either have been raging like hell or come down hard after all that. If he can play and score points after that kind of coke binge, well my hat’s off to him in a way, lol.

    • Lucrezia says:

      I was all “16k can’t be right”, so I looked it up. You’re right. And drugs are apparently uber-expensive here in Oz: about $200,000 for a kg of coke. (Makes sense given how far away we are from Columbia, but I was still surprised … I wasn’t expecting THAT much of a price difference.)

      • Emily says:

        You also have to factor in his size. That sort of thing matters when it comes to intoxication. He could probably handle more alcohol and I guess drugs compared to a random person who was half of his size. Maybe it is possible he did $16,000 worth. He could have been buying for the people he was partying with also.

  4. Karen says:

    I knew someone with a serious drug issue, he cheated on the best girl he ever had. Only when he was on the drugs. But she was smart and saw as much as she wanted to help him, she wasn’t going to get tormented by his addiction, waiting around for him to want to get sober. Waiting around for him to stop hurting her. She tried for some time. But eventually had to save herself. Addiction hurts some many people than just the one suffering from the disease. I feel bad for khloe. She’s trying to stand by him and make him better, but he’ll never get the help he needs until he’s 100% ready and committed and even then there may be slip ups. It’s more sacrifice than he’ll ever give her.

  5. janie says:

    I think the whole family is headed for a huge dose of Karma. I’m sorry Khloe is suffering & i wonder if this issue is why she never conceived? A blessing in disguise.. I wish they would stop leaking so much info about him.

  6. lisa says:

    i love that she shoots her selfies with a layer of mayonnaise and a pair of panty hose over the lens

  7. Joy says:

    I love how the drug thing has eclipsed his cheating. That way when she takes him back for the 87th time, it’ll be all about her sainthood for saving his life. Also it appears as though she’s given up any pretense of acting like she has been living with him full time lately. If you recall just recently she made it seem like the idea they weren’t living together was ludicrous. And the way the media is dead set on distinguishing crack from coke is laughable. I work at a psych facility and tons of my clients are on drugs. I can promise you we aren’t all “pinkies out he did coke not crack!” Because typically when a person is really at their worst, they’ll use anything they can get their hands on. But drugs would explain his dramatic drop in performance after being the Sixth Man of The Year.

  8. Ellie66 says:

    So he is doing freebase not crack….oh that’s much better. :( no way he could do that much before a game he would be a huge mess or have a heart attack.

  9. pk says:

    Whatever Lamar’s issues are, there is no excuse for the smear campaign which Khloe and her mother are clearly behind. This isn’t about tough love, it’s about ratings and the “brand”.

  10. tastetnow says:

    There were pics of her going into Kim’s divorce attorney’s ofc.

    I can’t find them, I think they were on RAD.

  11. pnichols says:

    she seems like the type who is compelled to “fix” and help, and he needs fixin. sad. hopefully it works out for the best.

  12. The Original Tiffany says:

    His career is totally over. There was talk before all this news dropped that the Lakers might be interested in Odom again, but no more. The Lakers won’t touch a player with that history and no one else will either.

    Before all this he was the rare 4 (power forward) that could handle the ball like a PG. During the last few seasons since he left Lakerland he has sucked and has NO decision making skills on court (or personally) and was a liability. Now NO team will touch him.

    He is finished professionally and he isn’t young so it is over. Period.

    • emmie_a says:

      So I always thought he didn’t need or want the Kardashian’s show because he had his own fame/career — but I wonder if he’ll want to be a bigger part of the show now that he’s pretty much done w/basketball?? That is, if he can get his sh*t together.

      • Elle Kaye says:

        I think being involved with this family has been a major downfall for him. Reggie Bush wanted no part of it. Kris Humphries was a very good player until he was caught up in the drama. His career suffered, as did his reputation. Fans booed him. The same has happened to Odom. I don’t know how any sane person could handle that stress. Cameras on them all the time, a mother-in-law who is always in your business. The cattiness of that family is overwhelming.

        He was hung out to dry. The Kardashian’s went to the gossip sites and told all the dirty secrets. It was terrible what they did to him and unforgivable. It will cost him any future job. And they didn’t do it to save him, they did it to help themselves.

    • pk says:

      I agree Ella Kaye. Hopefully Lamar will get his life together and get away from that family and maybe salvage his career. There are a lot of people rooting for him.
      What Khloe and her family have done to him is despicable.

  13. Dawn says:

    I think Lamar and his children will be better off if he does both. Go to Rehab and then divorce K-hoey.

    • pk says:

      Absolutely! I think maybe Lamar got tired of being a Kardashian and wanted a divorce and K-hoey wouldn’t agree because of how it would negatively impact her status. There have been blind items about Lamar living in a hotel for months before the cheating stories came out.

  14. Petee says:

    She has enough time to get her lip’s shot full of filler and take a picture of herself.Ugg.Grow up.You are a adult women.Put more of your energy on your marriage and husband.Disgusting family.

  15. John says:

    It helps to have role model in your life to give you the tools for a long successful marriage……
    This family never had that.
    That said, she irks me with her beauty can be bought and staged, the whole family does.
    Kim is lovely but seems to have low self esteem thanks to Kris., the other two are manufactured pretty.
    It will be interesting to see the collapse of the house of k brought about by their poor choices…

    • Hakura says:

      @John – I always find the ‘Kim/PMKris’ dynamic to be strange (& as is obvious, completely dysfunctional. As if PMK could be any other way). I’m sure you’re right, about her using the tactic of damaging the girl’s self esteem, for the sake of controlling them.

      Kim started out beautiful, before she had countless things done to herself. Her face isn’t even recognizable. But then Kris seems to be obsessed w/looking as much like Kim as possible (she even once admitted that Kim is her “favorite“. It’s really creepy. It’s like she isn’t content to simply ‘live through her’, & wants to be her.

      As screwed up as this woman is, I could even see her putting moves on Kanye. (Gag)

      • TG says:

        @Hakura – PMK has admitted that her Prized Pig Kim is her favorite on at least 3 occasions. I remember specifially she stated it on the Oprah episode and a few weeks ago she was on Chelsea Lately and she stated it and I think on another episode she stated it to her family, but I don’t recall the details on that one. I agree the PMK/Kim relationship is sick to the core. The others don’t seem to be as controlled and they barely seem to respect PMK, but I guess they like the money too much to tell her to kiss off for good.

        Also, I think Kourtney is the most attractive of the bunch. Kim used to be pretty but gosh she is not the least bit attractive anymore, especially when they are doing their one off interviews on the show and Kim just looks weird to me and orange. I don’t know if she has botoxed herself up or what but there is something way off there and for one so vain and a family so into looking hot and claiming to be fashionistas you would think they would have a better makeup artist on hand. How can Kim and PMK see that and think she looks great? Unless PMK is trying to get Kim to look more like her rather than the other way around?

  16. Mayda says:

    she looks really nice in all these photos. he hair looks great lately.

  17. Jenn says:

    Is it possible they leaked all this to FORCE him to get help. Most celebrities automatically do rehab when publicly caught and shamed. If he refused to go, maybe this is their way of forcing it. To help him.

  18. Bess says:

    Don’t forget that Lamar is a guy who had three children with his girlfriend & never married her. He then proposes to Khloe after 9 days. He’s not a stand up guy.

  19. Jesme says:

    Speaking from experience , it is possible to be in a marraige and not have a clue that your partner is using. The signs are there, but if you have never lived it you dont know the warning signs and by the time you put two and two together your addict is probably out of control.
    Sadly, Khloe can threaten Lamar til the sky falls and unless Lamar is sick and tired of being sick and tired all the cushy rehabs in the world are not going to help.Until Lamar decides he is ready to stop for Lamar it is not going to happen .
    I wish this on no one … Its an awful , heartbreaking ride .

  20. Kelly says:

    Right because when your husband, who appears to have some serious problems, gets arrested it is a great reaction to focus on yourself, do your makeup, and post selfies. That whole family is awful.

  21. tat2dgrl77 says:

    I disagree with your statement that rehab won’t save Khloe’s marriage. It very well could. If you have been around anyone who has been using drugs heavily then you understand that they make decisions that they would not normally make if they were in the right state of mind. If Lamar decides that he wants to go to rehab and really works at staying sober then their marriage could absolutely be saved. I’m not saying that I believe that Khloe should not be concerned with the cheating, but at this point it would appear that the other women were likely a bi-product of his drug addiction.

  22. Jesme says:

    Maybe she is trolling for a replacement ? They are all nutzzzzzz !

  23. RdyfrmycloseupmrDvlle says:

    Disappointed in you regarding the “Selfies” all while Lamar is Fing up in a major way.
    Inappropriate much??!!
    Comes off as bizarre, self absorbed, shallow, and just plain off the wall. Either stand by him with dignity and take yourself out of the media while you do it or Jettison him and move on with your life as you see fit.
    Either way try and act appropriate. Your making yourself look ridiculous with these pics. Your life is imploding, hello?

  24. TherapyCranes says:

    Damn she looks beautiful in these pics. I feel bad for Khloe. I really get the sense that she loves him.
