Lamar Odom's Excuse for Cheating Is Another Reason Marriage to Khloe Was Doomed

Heartbreaking 12

News broke yesterday that Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom. But certainly things had been going downhill for at least a year before that -- with rumors swirling about Lamar's numerous infidelities and his struggle with drug abuse. The last straw for Khloe was apparently the rap video that Lamar made where he admitted being on the "downlow" when Khloe was out of town -- basically admitted he cheated. TMZ is now reporting that far from being devastated by this turn of events, Lamar is glad to be rid of his marriage. Oh, and he blames his cheating on -- not himself.

More from The Stir: Khloe Kardashian's Brother Sounds Furious With Lamar Over Cheating Rumors

TMZ says that sources "connected to Lamar" tell the media outlet that Lamar blames his friends for "supporting me the wrong way by bringing girls around." Yikes. Just because there are girls in the room doesn't mean you have to have sex with them, Lamar. Apparently he never got the memo about that.

He also reportedly said, "I can't be f**kin' with Khloe.  She brings out the bad side of me." Ohhh, so now it's her fault.

An earlier report claimed that Khloe and Lamar had gone to marriage counseling together, but Khloe realized that would never work when Lamar kept lying in their therapy sessions, not taking responsibility for the rap video, and said he was so drunk he didn't remember what he said in it. Just because you don't remember it doesn't mean it wasn't true!

A source told HollywoodLife:

Khloe is so outraged about his unwillingness to take any responsibility and his complete unwillingness to tell the truth.

So there's a lot of excuses here -- Lamar's inebriation, his friends bringing babes around. I don't hear a lot of personal responsibility. Unfortunately, people with dysfunctional childhoods often find it hard to accept responsibility because they've been so downtrodden that they just get accustomed to being a victim, and carry that on into adulthood, when they need to start learning how to own up to their part in things.

It's a difficult process and one that can only be done with a lot of self-awareness and soul searching. Sometimes it takes losing something or someone very important to you before you can begin that journey. Maybe this will be Lamar's wake up call.

Lamar says he now wants to be "married" to his basketball career and "ignore the past." But a high-profile career can be ruined just as easily as a marriage. So Lamar really needs to dig deep and begin to look at himself and his actions. Ignoring the past is the last thing he should do.

Do you think Lamar will ever take personal responsibility?

This is why you wait more than a month to get married. This is why If your stinking rich you can afford to look into someone background... He cheated on the other woman in his life and I knew getting married wasn't going to change that cycle of behavior.

His.claim.is entirely valid considering the way these Kardashian women live their lives. They have to be the center of attention amd.call the shots. A marriage is a mutual contract, no just about one person. They cant do anything without their family knowing and having two cents opinion about it. Cheating is wrong absolutely, but he married his wife, not the whole damn family. She ruined this by not cleaving to her husbamd and following her psycho mothers opinion and.say so. Not at all surprised this happened.

Cleaving?! Mutual partnership, not cleaving. It's 2013.

Unfortunately I was afraid of this. It seems that most athletes have a problem with keeping their pants on.

Yes he only legaly married her but he married INTO the family. None of this is her fault. She did everything to fix it. I know plenty of people that can be in the same room as the opposite sex and NOT sleep with them. This marriage failed because of him
