Everyone knows that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's marriage has gone to the dogs. But now they are reportedly taking that one step further, by waging a fierce custody battle over their beloved boxer. The pooch, named after boxer Bernard Hopkins, has apparently been living with Khloe's personal assistant ever since she forbade Lamar from seeing the dog until he cleaned up his act. Good thinking, Khloe. But Lamar is upset that Khloe seems to have dumped the dog on her assistant. Hey, but this is what the Kardashians do! Give away their animals!
A source supposedly claims that Lamar has threatened to "fight to the death" to get his dog back. Sheesh, really? The death?! Lamar is pretty messed up, but somehow I doubt he said that. Even if it did come from a "well placed" source. How scary that gossip columns have moles within the Kardashian clan!
The source tells CelebrityFix:
Lamar was hysterically crying when he found out Khloe gave away their dog after refusing to let him see the pup until he got sober and cleaned up his act. When Lamar finally did and took the drug tests to prove it, Khloe went back on her word and said she didn’t trust him as she believed he was cheating the drug tests.
He has also supposedly said that Khloe will be "very sorry" that she's not letting him have the dog. Yikes. I hope no one takes this out on the dog! Give it round the clock protection, okay?
Khloe, for her part, doesn't seem to be handling the breakup well, with the source saying:
Khloe is still devastated over everything Lamar has done to her, and this is the one thing she still has over her control.
I don't blame Khloe one bit for not wanting Lamar to have the dog. What if he relapses? Why should the poor pooch be subjected to all of Lamar's skeevy lady friends? On the other hand, using a pet to retain "control" over someone is all kinds of wrong.
Khloe also seems to be finding solace in "HE." She recently wrote on Twitter:
"HE heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds"— Khloé (@khloekardashian) January 5, 2014
Who is "HE"? Matt Kemp? Who gets an all caps pronoun like that? Was it a typo? Oh, I see. It's from the Bible. Khloe is turning to God.
Well, perhaps Bernard is best off with the assistant right now. I do hope the two can come to an amicable custody arrangement. God would totally want that.
Have you ever shared custody of a pet?
