I cannot handle all the rumors swirling hither and yon about Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian! The current state of Khloe and Lamar's marriage, his career, and how she's handling his alleged drug addiction. It is like I'm on a hyper-fast, Kardashian-themed carousel after eating way too much funnel cake. Somebody stop this thing before I am ill! (Now I know how Bruce Jenner probably feels daily.)
The latest in the scandal (she said, fluttering her fan as if in olden times)? Lamar's opening up about who he thinks is responsible for leaking intel about his reported drug problem.
Yeah, that's right -- his in-laws. While keeping mum himself, an anonymous "friend" (you know it's bad when it's in quotes) spilled some juicy stuff in a recent interview:
Lamar absolutely believes that Khloe's family has been leaking stories to the tabloid press about his drug use and his trip to rehab last year. The last thing Lamar needs is for his battle to get sober made public.
On the one hand, it isn't a surprising accusation. This is, after all, a family who've made no bones about offering up any and all details about their own private lives for a profit. Still, if you've even watched one episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians (or every single one like a certain someone who is writing this article) you can't deny that to that brood, family is sacred.
They are the first to go to bat for each other, which doesn't always mean letting someone off the hook. This is maybe the most obvious in sensitive, teller-of-truths Khloe. But she's not the only one. Just look at how long it took for Kris Jenner to warm up to Scott Disick!
As recently as this season, the Kardashians revealed all the nitty gritty as Kris and her estranged stepson Brody Jenner reconciled in Greece. It doesn't seem likely to me that they'd then turn around and stoop so low with Lamar when it would so negatively impact one of their own.
The rumors certainly can't be helping Khloe and Lamar during this difficult time. Luckily, it doesn't seem as though Lamar thinks Khloe had anything to do with the leak. Still, Khloe's not taking it well -- venting her frustrations about the gossip on Twitter. Let's just hope Lamar stops worrying about how this has all come to light and focuses on what's really important -- his demons and his marriage to Khloe. In the end, facing his problems and realizing all he has to be thankful for rather than trying to blame his in-laws or anyone else is what will get him through.
Do you think Lamar is right about his in-laws leaking details of his problems?
