Khloe Kardashian is keeping close tabs on her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, despite the pair’s immanent divorce. Khloe and Lamar separated several months ago, but E! News reported that Khloe recently met up with the Lamar to "check in" on him to see how he is doing. Lamar made headlines this past summer when he was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol and suspicion of drugs. The former Lakers star admitted he suffered from a crack addiction but didn't seem to be doing anything to rehabilitate himself.
The couple started having marital troubles when Lamar was accused of cheating on Khloe and his emergent drug addiction started to ruin their marriage. Lamar was on a downward spiral since the news broke and the NBA star went missing at one point. Many speculated he was on a drug binge causing his wife and family to be concerned about his bizarre antics, but he eventually resurfaced.
The two braved public scandal and scrutiny for their relationship and avowed they were truly in love. Many thought the couple’s marriage was a sham and did not believe it would last. Despite the haters’ disbelief, they managed to remain married four years, which is a lifetime in Hollywood.
Lamar has always declared his love for Khloe and has held out hope that they will reunite. It appears he is getting his life back in order and hopefully this will be enough to convince Khloe to take him back. He told In Touch Weekly, “I want to make it work with Khloe. I’m going to see Khloe soon”.
The ‘Keeping up with the Kardashians’ star, admits it is difficult to watch her marriage fall apart on television, but has learned to accept that this is her life. “It’s really hard to watch yourself on TV too,” she told Sophie Monk on 2Day FM during an interview. She went on to say “it’s definitely not the easiest thing to do but it’s my life now I guess”. Lately, Khloe has been leaning on family and close friends to see her through this painful transition in her life.
For now, the divorce proceedings are still being processed and no word if the couple will repudiate the desolation of their marriage. Many are hoping Khloe's recent visit with Lamar could mean the couple wants to give their marriage another try. Let's hope for the best for this troubled couple.
Should Khloe give Lamar another shot?
