No wonder Khloe Kardashian seems so happy these days. Girl has been silently dealing with her marital struggles with estranged husband Lamar Odom for far longer than anyone could have imagined. Well, now the usually outspoken reality star is finally coming clean about what led to the downfall of their marriage — openly acknowledging Lamar’s infidelity on camera for the first time, and admitting that she lied to cover up his indiscretions for nearly a year.
In a sneak peek at this Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe appears to have reached the end of her rope with Lamar. During a press junket to hype his return to the basketball court, the former Lakers sixth man tells reporters that Khloe will always be his wife and that they talk every day, the latter claim she swiftly shoots down.
“I feel like people are almost questioning have I done enough [to save the marriage], but I can’t reach him for months on end, “ Khloe unloads in the confessional. “I would just rather him not say anything,” she continues. “It almost gets my hopes up, and then nothing ever changes.”
While going through her closet in preparation for moving out of her former love nest, Khloe lays it all down for big sis Kourtney. At one point she even calls out Lamar’s decision to keep wearing his wedding ring. “He’s now wearing his ring full time. F—k your ring. You were wearing it when you were f—king someone, too,” she rants, finally confirming the rumors that her ex was hooking up with at least one other woman.
Though Kokes keeps it together way better than we ever could under similar circumstances, she finally loses it when a friend texts her to ask if Lam’s recent comments mean the separated spouses are really working on a reconciliation.
“Let me tell you something!’ she yells, while Kourtney listens supportively. “Last year on my birthday I lied to everyone because I had to lie and say I was with my husband when in fact my husband was missing with another girl, okay?! And I lied and I gave up my Beyoncé tickets to Kendall — that’s how badly I was hiding! And I didn’t have a birthday! I was alone and lied to everyone! Ugh,” she ends her rant in disgust.
Hooking up with another girl on your wife’s birthday and making her miss a Beyoncé concert? Okay, not to be glib, but he’s lucky she’s just divorcing him, if you ask us.
Are you at all surprised about Lamar’s infidelity, or are you just surprised it took this long for Khloe to acknowledge it?
