When it comes to celebrity family drama, the Kardashians are no strangers. We saw Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and mother Kris go through their fair share of ups and downs Keeping up with the Kardashians – and more recently Khloe was in the spotlight thanks to Tristan Thompson. While Khloe was nine months pregnant, the media leaked pictures and videos of her longtime boyfriend Tristan, kissing and hanging out with other girls. Since then, their relationship has been severely complicated.
This was not the first round of Khloe with painful relationships, however. We can not forget his first marriage to the NBA player, Lamar Odom, who went down in flames. That's why the two failed to make the marriage work.
Khloe and Lamar were married after only a month of meeting
Before the entire Kardashian family was put in the limelight, Khloe was less well-known in the entertainment world in 2009. And it was that year that she married Lamar after meeting him for only a month, explains Entertainment Tonight. After the two got married, Khloe was feeling the taste of the spotlight when she was found sitting in front of all the Lamar Lakers games. And in 2011, two still had their own celebrity TV show chronicling their wedding titled Khloe and Lamar.
Things seemed stable for the couple for years – and as the Kardashians reached fame, more and more people began to follow the lives of Khloe and Lamar. The fans were then released when Khloe filed for divorce in 2013, and thanks to episodes of Keeping up with the Kardashians as well as intense media scrutiny, loyal followers of the couple learned exactly why Khloe was fed up with the relationship.
Lamar's problems with substance abuse and disagreements with the law were difficult for Khloe
While it took years for the couple to finalize the divorce, E! The news points out that one of the biggest problems in the marriage of Khloe and Lamar was the issue of substance abuse. The publication notes that Lamar was arrested in 2013 for driving under the influence, and although he entered rehab soon after the incident, he checked out after just one day. Lamar then did not contest and received three years probation – but the public understood that this was not the former problem of the former NBA player with substance abuse. It seemed that although Lamar's problems were coming to the forefront of the public, it was likely that this was a constant problem for Khloe in their marriage.
When Lamar left rehab after a day, a source told E! News that "the divorce was imminent." As a source said in December 2013 about Khloe, "She wants a fresh start. It was not an easy decision, but at the end of the day she will not be with someone who refuses to ask for help. "
Lamar was also unfaithful to Khloe during the marriage
Substance abuse was a matter that deeply affected Khloe, but infidelity was another. People comment that rumors of cheating spread for the first time in January 2012 when a tabloid said Lamar was unfaithful to a woman he met at a strip club and, again in 2013, another rumor claimed that Lamar betrayed a game with the Mavericks.
In relation to the cheating, Khloe was clearly taken by surprise – and in 2016, she expressed her anger during an interview with Howard Stern. "Lamar was so good at making me feel like I was the only one and I'm that princess. I never speculated to cheat … so I did not know about cheating … even before the DUI, "she said. "It's humiliating at any level, but I found out he was cheating on me most of our marriage, I just did not know."
In 2017, People reports that Lamar wrote a letter discussing the harm he inflicted on his marriage and Khloe personally. He called himself an "idiot" and even recalled a time when Khloe caught him using drugs with a woman in a motel. While the two apparently are no longer in touch, he noted that he thinks "she will be a good mother. Seriously. She's a great woman.
