Stick a fork in ‘em! After months of whispers, a cheating scandal and an alleged crack binge, hoopster Lamar Odom’s marriage to socialite Khloe Kardashian has officially imploded.
Equipped with the legal prowess of celebrity hotshot Laura Wasser, the reality TV star filed papers to dissolve her four year marriage in Los Angeles on Friday; citing the ever popular “irreconcilable differences.”
(FYI: Wasser also represented Khloe’s sister, Kim, in her long, drawn out divorce from Kris Humphries, another NBA star.)
It’s been a rocky 2013 for Odom and Kardashian, who wed after a whirlwind romance in 2009. The once solid marriage, chronicled on the E! sudster Khloe and Lamar, began to unravel once Kardashian caught wind of what tipsters call Lamar’s serious drug problem.
We hear the former Los Angeles Lakers star has quietly struggled with an addiction “hardcore recreational drugs” — including crack cocaine –for two years. Lamar even checked into a San Diego rehabilitation center for three weeks in August 2012.
The drug abuse reports came on the heels of sordid tales from at least two women who sold their allegations of affairs with the athlete to the supermarket tabloids. Confessed mistress Jennifer Richardson claims she enjoyed a threesome with Odom.
Should make for an interesting storyline on the next season of Keeping Up with the Kardashian. But it was all a bit too much for Khloe to stomach, if Friday’s divorce filing is any indication.
TMZ, who got first dibs on the divorce scoop, writes:
“…The couple has a prenup so division of property will be a cinch — they kept all their property separate. And Khloe is asking the judge to take Odom out of her name, so she is once again simply Khloe Kardashian…eliminating Odom from her life in every way. And, Khloe is NOT asking for spousal support and wants the judge to reject any bid by Lamar for the same.”
In November, People magazine reported that Khloe and Lamar were “going to couples therapy.” But it didn’t take long for the apparent reconciliation to go left. On Wednesday, Khloe posted a cryptic message on Instagram, uploading a photo with the quote, “I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise becasue I’ve been foolish.”
