The rumors, sadly, are true. As suspected for weeks now, Khloe Kardashian has reached a breaking point in her nearly four-year marriage to Lamar Odom. Coming in between the reality star, 29, and NBA free agent, 33, among other things: His serious battle with substance abuse, multiple sources confirm in the new issue of Us Weekly, out now.
« The addiction had taken over their marriage, » a mutual pal tells Us. « The problem is cocaine. He would be high for three or four days at a time. » (One rumor that’s false, according to a source: TMZ’s claim that Odom is addicted to crack.)
Desperate, Kim and Kourtney’s younger sister gave her « Lammy » an ultimatum on Aug. 21: Get help or get out. Khloe « wants to save her marriage and him, » the confidante says.
Up until that dramatic intervention, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star had been making excuses for her man’s erratic behavior. « She says the things he does are because of the drugs, and she just wants him to get help, » another friend says.
« I feel so bad for her, » the pal continues of Khloe, who wed the athlete after a whirlwind courtship back in September 2009. « She really loves Lamar. »
