There are many things significant others can keep from each other without doing irreparable harm to their relationship — their exact weight, hair color, the severity of their shoe hoarding problem, for example — but when it comes to major life changes, it’s pretty hard to keep those under wraps for long.
Khloe Kardashian, who was reportedly pushing the hardest to get troubled hubby Lamar Odom into treatment, was, rather shockingly, completely in the dark when he actually packed his bags and made the decision to get sober once and for all.
TMZ reports that, after a failed intervention, a DUI arrest, and a ton of tension between the two, Lamar finally made the decision to go to rehab to treat his alleged substance abuse issues — but he made no mention of his plan to his wife.
While Khloe and Lamar are on the outs lately, thanks to his slew of bad habits, it may be her allegedly domineering behavior during his last rehab stint that’s to blame for his need for an ultra-private recovery this time.
Sources close to the pair claim that Khloe put pressure on Lamar to enter treatment last summer and hired round-the-clock guards to ensure he didn’t make a break for it, which is more than enough to make anyone start feeling secretive.
We hope that this attempt at sobriety is a little less scary — and a lot more fruitful.
