Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s marriage is in crisis, and although the NBA player is allegedly deep into drug use, his wife of four years is afraid to file for divorce out of fear that he will commit suicide or overdose.
According to TMZ, Kardashian and Odom’s divorce is “inevitable,” but she is waiting to take legal action because she is worried it could send the troubled basketball player over the edge. “She’s afraid if she files, Lamar will overdose and die or be pushed over the edge and commit suicide,” a source told the website.
While there are conflicting reports about how seriously Kardashian is considering filing for divorce, it appears that a split may be unavoidable. “She feels she has no other options at this point because Lamar is unwilling to go to rehab,” a source told Radar Online. “There is hope that if Khloe does file [for divorce], Lamar will realize he must get help.”
Kardashian has reportedly accepted the fact that her marriage to Odom is beyond repair, but the reality star is putting her husband’s health first, despite the fact that he continues to fall deeper into drug use. “[Lamar] is living in his own world,” an insider said. “He still talks to Khloe every day, but his drug addiction is running and ruining his life. He loves the drug more than anything else, including his wife. He refuses to give it up.”
Odom’s heartbroken wife, on the other hand, has been putting up a strong front, keeping her commitments like hosting a Tru nightclub bash in Los Angeles on Monday. Kardashian was once again spotted in the company of The Game, who is rumored to be not-so-secretly pining for the still married star.
“Jayceon [The Game’s legal name] has made no secret that he has very strong feeling for Khloe, beyond friendship,” another source said. “Nothing inappropriate has happened, [The Game] respects the fact she is still married, but he is definitely waiting in the wings, hoping Khloe pulls the plug on her marriage to Lamar,” the insider explained.
In the meantime, however, Kardashian and The Game remain friends and the rapper continues to prove that he is more suited for the 29-year-old. “[Khloe] has been turning to The Game during her marriage woes with Lamar,” a source said. “He has been a great friend to her, and very supportive of Khloe.”
