Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are back together, and working on a reconciliation. You surprised? I’m not. I assume everything this family does (each of them) is for publicity. Kim’s marriage to Kris was fake, I think Bruce and Kris’ separation is fake, and I think all this drama surrounding Khloe has been fake to an extent. It all makes good TV, doesn’t it?
Here’s what we know. Lamar is a drug addict. Khloe found out, staged and intervention, and when he refused help, she kicked him out. Lamar went off on a big drug binge, and when he got sick of that, he came out of hiding and told Khloe he wants to work on their marriage. Rumor has it the Laker’s aren’t going to take Lamar back, claiming he’s “burned too many bridges.”
Lamar is reportedly clean now, and the main motivation is to get his basketball career back on track. He begged Khloe for forgiveness, and apparently she took him back.
The cover story of the new issue of Us Weekly gives readers the inside story of how Khloe Kardashian is giving Lamar Odom a second chance after he apologizes. Odom has clocked a few days of sobriety, reveals a source, and he came straight to Khloe.
“Lamar broke down and apologized deeply to her.” More than any promise, seeing a semblance of the man she married cooled her anger. “He got clean, and that’s why she started talking to him again,” says the insider. “She was willing to give him a second chance.” It was also important to Odom that he make amends with his mother-in-law, and Khloé agreed. “She told Lamar she would bring him to Kris’ so he didn’t have to go alone,” says the insider. Momager Kris Jenner was a tough sell. “Lamar was super emotional,” says the insider. “He told Kris he never meant to hurt them or their daughter. He said disappointing them was the biggest mistake of his life.” Kris broke down in tears and hugged Odom. “She told him she loved him and he said the same,” says the source. “But she also told him, ‘Don’t you ever do this again.’ ”
Other sites like TMZ and Radar are claiming these two are not back together. I don’t know – I’m not convinced they were really split that whole time. Only time will tell, right?
