Is Lamar Odom finally taking responsibility for his bad behavior in an attempt to get his life back on track? Will Khloe Kardashian Odom still be around if and when he does…or will she be too busy inspiring the young lads of One Direction 2.0? It's a lot to take in, I know!
Starting with Lamar, he's changed his plea from "not guilty" to "no contest" in his recent DUI offense. Radar Online is reporting that Lamar will have his license suspended automatically for a year for refusing further chemical testing after his arrest. A source tells the site, “Odom pled no contest to first offense DUI, and the refusal to take further testing after he was arrested was dismissed."
A spokesperson for the California Highway Patrol shares, “He did what no one should ever do, he refused the chemical tests. That means that his license is revoked and Lamar could get the most powerful attorney in the world and he is still not going to have a license for a year.”
Well, it seems that these crazy kids are really trying to make it work. While there have been divorce rumors galore since it came out that Lamar Odom was suffering from addiction issues and multiple alleged affairs, Khloe Kardashian appears to be standing by her man. I can only imagine what Kris Jenner thinks about this!
Khloe has been out and about lately (most notably at a sex themed nightclub with her underage half-sisters), but the couple hasn't been seen together in public since the news of Lamar's troubles were first reported. Sources and insiders (all fifteen billion of them!) have said everything from they are destined to split to they are going work through their marital woes. Who knows?
Us Weekly has the first footage of Kim's third engagement (her second staged for a reality show and also her second Lorraine Schwartz ring!), and it features Kanye dropping down on one knee, Kim accepting, and a flood of K-fam members and hangers-on (Jonathan Cheban!) rushing the field.
We all know that things haven't exactly been peachy keen for Lamar Odom. Once seemingly happily married to Khloe Kardashian, the NBA player is in a major downward spiral due to alleged substance abuse and infidelity.
While theKeeping up with the Kardashian's star has remained out of the spotlight, Lamar remains in the tabloids thanks to DUIs and faux Twitter rants expressing his gratitude towards Kris Jenner (we all knew that had to fake, right?). Is there anyone who could possibly draw him out of his cave to tell his version of the events?
Meanwhile, her sister Kim Kardashian is probably jonesing to get BACK in the public eye with new daughter North. Unfortunately for her, Kanye West doesn't want to have to share his child with the world. Lest we forget, this is not America's baby.
For Khloe, divorce rumors abound on the heels of Lamar's alleged mistresses, drug use, and DUI. According to Extra TV, Khloe has found support in a rapper (Are we seeing a pattern…she marries an NBA player, Kim marries an NBA player? Role reversal!)
Lamar's father Joe (who has appeared on several Kardashian reality shows and has a history of drug abuse) tweeted that Kris and Khloe Kardashian drove Lamar to drug use and called Kris an "evil bitch."
In case you weren't aware, Lamar is reportedly addicted to crack, among other things and was using all throughout his stellar (until the Kardashians got involved!) NBA career. Anyway, Lamar fired back SUPPOSEDLY, writing, among other things: "How can a man who has NOT once called me to check on my well being have the nerve to talk so recklessly about his own 'son'. He is my downfall!" Now Lamar is denying that he ever wrote a pro-Kardashian rant and claims his twitter was hacked! Now that I believe!
TMZ reports that Lamar's friends say he absolutely did not write the statement defending the Kardashians as his "only family". In fact sources say Lamar currently has no internet and was completely unaware of the statements his father made on twitter. He's also still in hiding and when people come to the door he "confiscates their phones".
Lamar Odom finally broke his silence. Since the accusations of Lamar's secret life as a hard-core drug addict (and habitual cheater) came out in the press a few weeks back, Lamar has gone completely silent and has refused to defend himself nor admit the rumors. That was until his estranged father decided to chime in with his two cents about the situation.
His father was quoted this week calling Kris Jenner evil, among other things, and blaming the family for Lamar's troubles. Lamar took to Twitter for the first time since July to blast his father: "Won't continue 2 speak on this but I have got 2 let this out real quick. I have let this man and many others get away with a lot of shit. He wasn't there 2 raise me. He was absent ALL of my life due to his own demons. My mother and grandmother raised me. Queens raised me."
Lamar will be arraigned on September 27th and if convicted he will likely land probation and alcohol awareness classes since he is a first time offender. Hopefully he doesn't turn into LiLo!
No word on what Khloe thinks on all of this, but sources connected to the star tell People (print edition) that she wants to save her marriage and hasn't given up on Lamar. She continues to wear her wedding rings.
