Lamar Odom has had a troubled life and he puts the bulk of the blame on his estranged wife and her family. Radar Online, April 18, 2016 reported that Lamar believes that Khloe Kardashian and the TV reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” is the reason why he made the wrong choices and ended up almost losing his life.
According to a source, Lamar was very happy when he was playing professional basketball for the Lakers and playing with Kobe. However, Lamar’s “life started to fall apart after he met Khloe. When he met her and started appearing on all of Kris Jenner’s shows, that’s when he started to go off the rails. Lamar blames Khloe and her family. Being on the shows was the beginning of his terrible times.”
Even after Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian split up, they were still having drama issues. In August 2015, an incident happened where Lamar just happened to appear at SoulCycle just as Khloe was going toward the door. An eyewitness said that Lamar demanded Khloe to stop and talk to him but she ignored him and kept walking. Lamar allegedly approached her and touched her on the arm to which she suddenly started screaming for him to get off her and leave her alone..
However, Lamar maintains that the meeting was prearranged by Khloe and that he was not stalking her, following her or doing anything else of that nature. He was living in Las Vegas at the time.
Lamar Odom went off the deep end, in October 2015, when he went to a Nevada brothel, Love Ranch, and almost ended his life. He overdosed on herbal male enhancement pills and cocaine and when they found him passed out in his room, he was unresponsive.
Khloe Kardashian came in, pushed his family aside, and took over all of his decisions including his medical decisions, and finances. She had their divorce papers pulled from the judge’s desk as an incentive for him to get better. It took time and several setbacks in Lamar’s health but he finally made it through the worst.
For a while, it looked as though Lamar and Khloe might be getting back together, but then pictures appeared in headline news of him drinking at a bar the Saturday before Easter. Lamar told Entertainment tonight, “I mean, it gets tough, especially if so much gets speculated. Only a few people know the truth, and I just keep that close to my heart.”
Reports are saying that Khloe is going ahead with the divorce and her mother Kris Jenner is pushing her forward. Kris believes that Khloe should end her marriage with Lamar immediately.
Finally, the Radar Online source concluded, “Lamar ignores the fact that he is responsible for his own actions. But his life became a mess after Khloe, that’s undeniable.”
But still, Lamar has returned to the show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” along with his brother-in-law, Rob Kardashian. If Lamar truly believed that the Kardashians were responsible for even part of his problems. why would he continue to spend time with them and be on their reality show?
Do you think that Khloe and the Kardashian/Jenner family hold that much power over Lamar, or did he just want a scapegoat to blame his problems on? Post your thoughts below in the comments section and voice your opinion as to whether Khloe messed up Lamar’s life or if he did it on his own.
