Khloe Kardashian Explains Why She Puts Up With Lamar Odom (VIDEO)

Heartbreaking 20

Khloe KardashianThe marriage of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom has certainly hit the "worse" part of "for better or worse," but for months Khloe has remained relatively silent about it -- except for her cryptic tweets. However, with cameras following her 24/7, it was only a matter of time before their troubles hit the airwaves. The latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians showcased more erratic behavior from Lamar, as he continually called her and family members as they were on a (very staged) "alien hunting" trip in the Nevada desert. But for those of us wondering why in the hell Khloe keeps putting up with Lamar's behavior, she finally let us into her reasoning.

"Lamar has been having a really tough time lately and it’s not just black and white," she said to her concerned family. "There’s a lot of emotional issues, and as much as I’m trying to enjoy going camping with my family, I also have to cater to Lamar’s needs. It’s really scary when nothing’s really working and you know if you give up no one in his life would be able to help."

Well, perhaps camping with her family wasn't the thing to be doing at such a time, but the girl has to live her life too. Especially since Lamar keeps disappearing.

Oddly, however, he kept dialing Khloe's family members and Rob confessed that the troubled baller calls him several times a day. Yet, it was also revealed that he'd "cut off ties" with Khloe. Ugh, what a rollercoaster.

The main issue here seems to be guilt: Khloe feels like her hands are tied because Lamar has nowhere else to turn. But the reality is that Lamar is an adult -- he may not have parents to turn to, but he could get therapy. He could check into rehab. He could rely on friends.

Adults have to create their own support systems sometimes. Not everyone is given a large and loving family the way Khloe is.

But the main person you need to learn to rely on is yourself.

Do you think that Khloe has a good reason for not abandoning Lamar?

Hats off to Kloe! Of course I don't know their circumstances, but I appreciate & respect the fact that Kloe's a well-hearted person for not leaving her Lamar high & dry. She's his wife. She's doing the right thing by her husband.

I agree with Megan! The vows are 'for better or for worse' but I do believe Khloe will help Lamar as much as she can but there's only so much a woman can do for her husband if he's not trying to help himself!

I believe that Khloe, just like any woman in love is holding out hope that Lamar will wake up and realize what he has to lose. I agree marriage vows are, "For better or for Worse" and although its easy for people who don't know you or your circumstances to judge or give their opinion, the reality of it is, some people are stronger than others and will stick by their man through thick and thin... and those are the people who usually get that happy ending no one thought would come.

yes, I think that Khloe loves Lamar an if she keeps fighting for what she knows is right they will keep striving an make it work. Khloe you an your family are the best keep doing what you do.

i think she has every right to stand by her husband. She took the vows for better or worse and now its when he needs her the most, she should absolutely stand beside her husband. Thats what a marriage is about. Now she is agreeing to take him back so i feel he needs to take advantage of this opportunity and get himself clean and save their marriage before she cant handle it anymore. I did think it was crazy when he was calling all the family members, im assuming it was just to see if she was truly with her family. So he did go overboard with that. I think he may have been high at the time and was just spazzin out. Anyway i hope they can make it through this tough time in their marriage.
