Khloe Kardashian might be super-psyched to have just been named co-host of The X Factor, but her whole world could come crashing down around her if there's even a bit of truth to a new report in Star magazine. According to the tabloid -- which, of course, is a tabloid, so let's treat it as such! -- a source close to the situation claims that hubby Lamar Odom’s frustration with "omnipresent" TV cameras brought them to a “boiling point” in September.
And oh yeah, somehow it gets worse! “The only thing Lamar has been sticking around for was a child ... But since Khloe hasn’t been able to get pregnant, he doesn’t see any point in staying in the marriage. He’s done.” Thus, he's actually ready to pull the plug on their three-year marriage and has met with a divorce lawyer. Oh wow.
The source goes on to explain that Lamar "wants to be sure he’s protected because he knows the Kardashians will try to fight for a chunk of his fortune. He’d rather just serve her with papers and be done. As opposed to telling her the truth and having her freak out." Oh geeeeze! As if by going about it the way they've described, she WON'T freak out?! This could be devastating for Khloe ... and the whole Kardashian brood.
After all, I wouldn't be surprised if some people only "keep up" with the Kardashians for Khloe's sake. And that's because people actually LIKE Khloe. Oh, sure, we want to know what Kim's latest shenanigans are and hear about Kourtney and Scott's latest drama, but Kardashian fans actually genuinely care about Khloe! No one wants to see her get served divorce papers!
Fingers crossed this is all a sick, made-up tale spun by either Star or, heck, Kris Jenner to keep the gossip mill churnin' along. Maybe they figure they've exhausted the Kourtney-Scott breakup story, so now, we've gotta freak people out about Khloe and Lamar again?
But if there is any truth to it, the whole Kardashian clan's gonna have to face the fact that they've set themselves up to be completely cursed. Fame's great and all, but is it really worth throwing your entire personal life under the bus? Is it worth sacrificing marriage after marriage? Contending with stress and constant exposure that has to be taking a toll on Khloe's mental and emotional health, which could easily be affecting her fertility? (Not that her fertility challenges should be driving Lamar to divorce her!)
The list of reasons why fame can be toxic to their lives goes on and on ... With hope, Khloe's life, marriage, and hopes of a happy future hasn't already been completely wrecked by the spotlight.
Do you believe these two might be calling it quits? Do you agree the Kardashians' fame seems to have cursed their personal lives?
