Khloe Kardashian no longer believes that Lamar Odom can be saved from his addictions and she is giving up on him and their marriage. TMZ, April 10, 2016, reported that she left several lengthy messages on her social media accounts as she realized that she could not save Lamar from himself. He has to want the change before it will do any good.
It seems that Khloe realized that Lamar was never going to change when she saw the pictures of him drinking at Johnny O’Brien’s pub in Los Angeles’s Sherman Oaks. This caused Khloe and her family to worry that Lamar could easily go back to his old ways.
Khloe wrote, “It doesn’t matter how loyal you are to someone. You can’t change someone’s heart and bad habits unless they want to themselves.”
Khloe Kardashian tried to help Lamar Odom and she even put their divorce on hold with the hopes that he might stay off drugs and alcohol, but all that has changed. TMZ reported that the divorce is back on the judge’s desk awaiting his signature. However, her decision comes with a truckload of guilt on how Lamar will take the news. Khloe is afraid that her decision may push Lamar to drinking heavily and abusing drugs and it may cost him his life.
Sources told TMZ that Lamar Odom tried to assure Khloe it was only a couple of drinks and all he wanted to do was to live a normal life. Khloe does not see it that way and she tried her best to convince him to get help in a rehab center. Lamar refused, because he does not believe he has a problem.
Lamar Odom overdosed at the Nevada-based brothel, the Love Ranch and he was brought back from the edge of death. When Lamar’s life was spared and he found Khloe by his hospital bedside, he promised her that he would stay off the drugs if she would take him back.
Lamar probably meant those words at the time and Khloe put a stop to their divorce. She took complete control of Lamar’s finances, medical conditions and made sure he had the best care possible no matter the cost. Her relationship with James Harden ended after she discovered he had cheated on her and she put her focus solely on Lamar.
“We have to learn to stop taking on peoples problems as if they are our own. Loving people does not mean we have to carry their burdens and confusions on our back.”
Khloe was so focused on Lamar that she lost interest in her new show, “Koctails with Khloe” and it showed in her ratings when people failed to tune in. Khloe was just going through the motions and it was apparent to the executives of her show that she had “checked out.”
Khloe said that the show was cancelled because she wanted to focus on “other jobs,” but it was clear that she was too involved with Lamar and his problems. At one point, Khloe was so stressed about Lamar and his health that she refused to film for an entire week and this did not set well with the FYI executives.
Can Khloe Kardashian truly let Lamar Odom go or will she continue to hope tha things work out between them? Do you think Lamar Odom has a problem and should check into rehab, or can he control his alcohol intake and stay away from drugs?
