Khloe Kardashian isn’t ready to give up on her troubled marriage to cheating husband, Lamar Odom. However, momager Kris Jenner has had enough and is after her daughter to pull the plug on her four year marriage.
A source close to the situation revealed exactly how Kris Jenner feels about the situation. “At Kris’ insistence, Khloe did meet with a divorce lawyer. It was something she was forced into doing by her mom, Kris was very heavy handed and said Khloe had a responsibility to her sisters, Kim and Kourtney, and the Kardashian brand to distance herself from Lamar.”
“It’s all about the bottom line with Kris and Khloe could care less about that. She is still holding out hope that her marriage to Lamar can be saved.” The source said that Khloe’s self-esteem is tied to her marriage to Lamar and that’s one reason she’s not ready to give up on him or their marriage.
The source said, “Khloe’s entire self-worth and identity is wrapped up in her marriage and relationship to Lamar. Remember, four years ago, before Khloe married Lamar, she was just sort of fledgling.”
“Kourtney was on her way to having her first baby, and Kim was dating Reggie Bush. Khloe was living with Kourtney in a townhouse, and her life was just lumped into her sisters.” So when she met and married Lamar, it was a huge change for her.”
“It was a chance for Khloe to distance herself from the Kardashian name. All of a sudden, Khloe was getting tons of attention from the media, and she was very popular with Lamar’s teammates’ wives.”
“She had this huge mansion, a wardrobe to die for, and the man of her dreams. It was everything her other two sister’s didn’t have.”
Right now, Khloe’s marriage to Lamar is in the toilet. Not only is he a free agent who hasn’t been picked up by any NBA team, he’s struggling with a serious drug addiction. He has also been caught cheating with five women in the last year.
Khloe however, still believes that they can save their marriage the source said. “She can’t remember what her life was like before Lamar, and she doesn’t want to go back to that lonely life.”
“Yes, she has a huge family, but she has always felt that she doesn’t fit in with the Kardashian-Jenner clan. Khloe is really low key, and all she has ever wanted was to be happily married and have a ton of kids.”
“She thought she had that with Lamar, but obviously doesn’t. Is it likely she will give that up anytime soon, or even the idea of it? No. She is still hoping Lamar goes to rehab and gets help, and she wants to give him the opportunity to make the marriage work.”
What would you do? Would you hold on and try to save your marriage or would you walk away?
