In a Hail Mary attempt to save the marriage, Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom went on a “secret getaway” this summer with designs on rebuilding the relationship, in the wake of news breaking that Lamar allegedly cheated on the youngest of the three Kardashian sisters with a 29-year-old woman named Jennifer Richardson.
“They were barely speaking” at the time they left on the trip, but when they got into the swing of things, “there were lots of kisses and tears,” a family insider told US Weekly.
A source told the magazine the summer sojourn “was a really good time for them to spend time together and focus on each other,” and according to their sources, it was a success.
“They’re focused on the marriage, they’re committed to the relationship [and] they adore each other,” a source told the magazine.
A separate source told the magazine that the marriage’s rough spots could be attributed to Lamar’s edginess under the white hot Kardashian spotlight; and professional frustration as his hoops career game seems to be in a state of slow decline as he enters his mid-30s.
“Lamar goes through mood swings and depression,” the source said, adding his trade away from the Los Angeles Lakers in late-2011 “ruined his Mojo” for some time.
