Things started off quickly for the couple. After a whirlwind courtship, Khloe and Lamar married after knowing each other only a month. Divorce rumors hounded them continually, but on their E! reality show, Khloe & Lamar, the two always seemed lovey-dovey. In July 2013, when Jennifer Richardson claimed she’d had an affair with Lamar. When Polina Polonsky came forward a month later to admit she’d been with him, too, things seemed to fall apart for the basketballer and his wife. There are conflicting reports as to whether Khloe and Lamar are together, separated, or in the process of divorcing.
We’ve outlined the details in the timeline below, and we’ll keep you updated on the heartbreaking story.

Khloe obviously changed her mind and dined with Lamar at STK in Beverly Hills. “They’re very, very happy,” sister Kim said at the time, according to AccessHollywood.com. “They’ve been together a few weeks, and are literally inseparable. Khloe thinks he’s amazing and [he] makes her laugh and smile constantly.”
Khloe says she and Lamar are trying to have a baby, but they are in no rush. "I'm not desperate to have a baby," the reality star told People. "Do I want children? Yes. But I'm very happy being just Lamar and I."

July 17, 2011
While in New York for his cousin’s funeral, Lamar was involved in a serious car accident. His driver struck and killed a 15-year-old boy.

Lamar was traded to the Dallas Mavericks after playing for the L.A. Lakers for seven years — though he’d felt unwanted by his old team. “I know for a fact blessings are everywhere!!! Everything happens for a reason. God is great,” Khloe tweeted.
TMZ revealed Lamar’s alleged drug use, including crack cocaine. Khloe tweeted, “Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s--t about my family! F--k you and shame on you! I’m too protective for this s--t.”
Lamar's agent told ESPN, "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is." After four days, Lamar returned to his home with Khloe, rumored to look sick and thin. The same day, E! News reported that the couple was not divorcing. Also, Khloe’s wedding ring resurfaced.
Radar Online reports that Lamar has been cheating on Khloe with far more women than he let on. In fact, that site says that Khloe's private investigator has proof that he's cheated on her with at least five different women. That's obviously bad news for Lamar since there's definitely an infidelity clause in their prenup. Good thing for Khloe, she's got friends with inspirational quotes about being "your own hero," at a time she really needs it.
