In recent weeks, several reports and sightings have indicated Khloe Kardashian and her hubby, NBA player Lamar Odom, have been living separate lives, with Lamar holed up in a downtown L.A. hotel. However, a recent Us Weekly story asserts that not only is Lamar no longer living at home — neither is Khloe. What caused Khloe to fly the coop? According to a source close to the reality star, it was the discovery of drug paraphernalia Lamar had been keeping in their Tarzana home.
“She said, ‘that’s it,’” the unidentified source tells US Weekly. “She didn’t feel comfortable in a place where Lamar had abused drugs.” The insider didn’t say if Khloe’s brother, Rob Kardashian, who lives with the couple, is staying put or moving out, too. If the reports are true, we have to say we understand where our girl Khloe is coming from. A discovery of that nature would be more than enough to turn one’s sanctuary into an unsafe environment. Reportedly, Lamar checked into rehab for drugs and alcohol abuse — before almost immediately checking himself out. The pro basketball player may have a crack cocaine addiction and was arrested for a DUI on August 30 after refusing to be tested for illicit substances.
So where is Khloe living if not in the home she once shared with Lamar? While that’s unclear, we assume she’s probably shacked up at the Jenner compound in Calabasas, at least temporarily. It’s already a full house, though, with sister Kim Kardashian living there with boyfriend Kanye West and their new baby, North, as they await completion of renovations on their Bel Air mansion.
Never fear, though — Kris Jenner is on the case. “Kris is figuring out where Khloe can live.” Perhaps there’s more room at Kourtney and Scott Disick’s. Though the couple have two kids of their own, and their $1.7-million Calabasas home has four bedrooms. Depending on how long Khole’s marital woes last, she may be able to move in with Kim and Kanye when they finish renovating their $11.4 million Bel Air mansion.
We hope wherever Khloe lands, she finds herself feeling safe as houses there.
