Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom have been fighting divorce rumors for months, and the tabloid drama doesn’t seem to show any signs of slowing down yet.

Though Khloe and Lamar have tirelessly combated reports that their marriage is over, Life & Style is now reporting that Lamar has asked for a trial separation — and that he’ll likely leave Khloe once their two week trial period is up.

“He told Khloe he needs time to think and be away from her,” an unnamed insider tells the mag. “He feels completely smothered by her.”

The insider adds that Lamar is tired of being part of “the whole Kardashian machine,” and that he feels like he’s lost a big part of his identity in the marriage.

The mag had previously published reports of Lamar partying with strippers in Minneapolis, and now it adds a new charge: that Lamar was seen grinding and “majorly flirting” with a scantily clad brunette Toronto on January 31.

So where does that leave his wife? “Khloe hasn’t handled stress well in the past — she’s lost her hair, gained and lost weight, gotten depressed,” another source tells the mag, “so her friends and family are worried she might crack.”

So far, Khloe and Lamar are staying strong in the face of all the rumors. We’ve heard no confirmation of anything just yet — so for now, we’re going to continue to take all of this gossip with a grain of salt.
