Khloe Kardashian Rumors
Yet on Friday “news” came out Khloe Kardashian — for the uninitiated, she was the one with Lamar Odom who most recently was dating rapper French Montana — is single again and had her eyes on Portland center Robin Lopez. Because what woman doesn’t find that Sideshow Bob hair hot? Lopez shot that down in a hysterical way on the Blazers’ official site (h/t Eye on Basketball): “You know, I’m not exactly certain of the veracity of those rumors,” said Lopez. “But what I can comment on, I suppose, is the fabrication of that power couple by the press. Obviously they were looking for two people with a lot of influence on popular culture, on the youth, and they were looking for two movers and shakers. Frankly, I’m not surprised they came up with my name.”
This guy needs to learn a lesson from Kris Humphries — and run. We’re told that Khloe Kardashian is “on the hunt for a new man” after her relationship with rapper French Montana, and she’s set her sights on Portland Trailblazers center Robin Lopez.
Reality television personality Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband of four years, NBA basketball player Lamar Odom, capping months of reports that the couple’s relationship had turned rocky. Kardashian, 29, cited irreconcilable differences in seeking to end her marriage in court documents filed on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court. Kardashian, a younger sister of the better-known TV celebrity Kim Kardashian, married Odom, 34, a former player for the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks, in September 2009 after a whirlwind romance. The wedding was featured on the E! channel reality show “Keeping Up with the Kardashians.” The couple have no children together.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are packing it in — we’ve learned they are secretly selling their Tarzana mansion. Real estate sources tell TMZ … Khloe has given several San Fernando Valley realtors a pocket listing — meaning the house will not appear in the multiple listing service. It’s being done on the down low. Any prospective buyer must pre-qualify before seeing the house, meaning they must have the dough to buy the crib. We’re told Khloe and Lamar want a cool $4 mil for the house. They paid $3.95 million in 2009. Our sources say Khloe is the driving force behind the sale, telling realtors she wants to “start fresh and move on.”

The marriage of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom is in crisis, and TMZ has learned … the core reason is hardcore drug abuse. Multiple sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ … Lamar has had a problem for 2 years. It got so bad, last August Khloe pressured Lamar to go to rehab. Lamar went to a facility in San Diego, but he was so resistant Khloe hired private investigators to secretly stand guard at the rehab place to make sure he didn’t leave. The P.I.s stood guard 24/7. Our sources say Lamar constantly threatened to leave and Khloe made several visits to prevail upon him to stay. We’re told after 3 weeks, Lamar left for good. We’re told Lamar actually stayed clean once he left rehab and was able to play well for the Clippers this past season. But when the season was over, sources say Lamar slipped deep back into hardcore recreational drugs.
Odom and his wife, Khloe Kardashian, filmed part of their reality TV show, Khloe & Lamar, during this past NBA season. Cameras and workers from the show were frequently in the locker room before and after Mavs’ games — even as Odom’s game was in a downward spiral. But on Oprah’s Next Chapter, which aired Sunday night, Odom said the reality TV show wasn’t a distraction and had no effect on his poor performance with the Mavs. “I think this past year I didn’t perform on a level that I wanted to perform as far as being a professional basketball player,” Odom said. “And so I think I have to reprove myself.”
Khloe Kardashian has been benched from her reality TV show. Kardashian and Dallas Mavericks scrub Lamar Odom, who headline “Khloe & Lamar,” are ending their E! series, according to TMZ.com. The duo won’t return for a third season of “Khloe & Lamar,” a spinoff off “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” so Odom can get his struggling NBA career back on track.
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have decided to pull the plug on their spin-off show “Khloe & Lamar.” Sources tell TMZ, the show’s second season will be its last … because Lamar wants to focus on reviving his fizzling NBA career.
“You know I love my man Cubes,” Barkley said. “I’m surprised it took that long. The D-League thing was, to me, a red flag. But that didn’t wake him up. And I’ve got to tell you something. I always pull for my players. I always pull for the players. But the fact that they’ve got to pay him, I think is a joke. I mean, because he didn’t earn his salary. He didn’t earn it at all. “I like Lamar as a person, but I’m disappointed about everything that happened in Dallas. And it’s a shame that the Mavs got to pay him, to be honest with you. He don’t deserve to get paid for what he put out there this year. He doesn’t deserve it, plain and simple.
Charles Barkley says Lamar Odom had a difficult time adjusting to life in Dallas because he was suffering from a divorce. Not a divorce from his reality TV star wife Khloe Kardashian, but a divorce from his former NBA team. During a local radio interview on Wednesday, the NBA on TNT analyst and Hall of Fame player said Odom never reached his potential with the Mavericks because his feelings were still hurt from being traded by the Los Angeles Lakers. “I think he just, like, mentally was like, ‘Wow, they don’t like me anymore,'” Barkley said on the Galloway and Company show on KESN-FM 103.3 in Dallas. “And I don’t think he ever regrouped, or ever recovered.”
“I think it’s a joke that he’s gonna get paid for sitting at home for the next few months,” Barkley continued. “In the NBA, we get paid every two weeks. So, Lamar’s making close to $10 million a year. So, he’s probably going to miss two paychecks. He’s probably making $300,000 to $400,000 every two weeks. So, to sit at home and make that type of money just really pisses me off, to be honest with you, for the effort he put out there. “He’s going to make hundreds of thousands of dollars his next two paychecks that he looks like he’s going to miss, and that’s not fair to the Mavs, it’s not fair to the game of basketball and I’m just disappointed in Lamar.”
Sources believe the pressure of also playing in front of reality cameras for “Khloe and Lamar” pushed Odom into a slump. “When he wasn’t playing well, it meant he looked bad,” said a source. “And when you have a show about your life, when you are off-court, you have to deal with the producers asking all those questions. He had a horrible summer, but . . . he was more concerned about the cameras and how he looked.”
Sources say Queens-born Odom never felt at home in Dallas and grew depressed during his time there. Family woes also plagued Odom, who took a leave of absence in February after his father reportedly fell ill. This came months after he was involved in a New York car accident where his driver hit a motorcyclist, who then struck and killed a 15-year-old pedestrian.
Drama may make for good reality television, but Lamar Odom’s emotions were too much for the Dallas Mavericks’ top brass. The Mavericks yesterday bounced Khloe Kardashian husband Odom — who arrived from the Los Angeles Lakers in December — after four months of poor performance, family drama and off-court antics that left the team’s management fed up. He’s been put on the inactive list until after the playoffs, after which the Mavs can trade him. “They grew tired of his BS and kicked him to the curb,” an NBA source told Page Six. “[The team] didn’t need someone pouting like a little kid.”
Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to defend her husband — Dallas Mavericks forward Lamar Odom. After the Mavs and Odom mutally agreed to part ways Monday, Kardashian tweeted: “U deserve so much better. Know ur worth and know ur skills that have been proven and earned! U showed ur strength. I love u.” Kardashain also tweeted: “Never a dull moment.”
It’s the last category, that intangible one, that caused the Mavs’ brass to finally stop hoping and believing that Odom could contribute to their repeat quest. Khloe’s little Lam Lam will go down as one of the biggest disgraces in Dallas sports history because he wouldn’t even do the simplest thing in sports: play hard. “Therein lies the decision,” said Nelson, who still went out of his way Monday to offer Odom’s personal issues as an excuse.
Just hours after taking to Twitter to defend her husband, Mavericks forward Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian was at it again following the Mavs’ 97-92 loss to the New Orleans Hornets. “I love how people can ‘report’ lies and BS & slander some1’s name… Then when the truth comes out no one owns up to ‘reporting’ the rumors they so carelessly spread,” Kardashian wrote on her Twitter account. Though she never mentions Odom by name, Kardashian’s comments seemed targeted toward her husband’s critics.
Khloe Kardashian-Odom was a guest on Conan O’Brien’s television show Wednesday night and discussed her thoughts on going to strip clubs with and without her husband. “I like strip clubs. I don’t mind it. I don’t go like every Tuesday for a lunch, it’s not that,” she said. “Lamar and I, we enjoy it. It’s fun.” Kardashian-Odom also admitted that Lamar is allowed to go without her. “Recently he went with some of his teammates and he asked, ‘Do you mind if I go to a strip club, tonight?’ I was like, ‘Sure, go.’ It’s like male bonding, why do I care,” she said. “We have a very trustworthy relationship. Lamar’s a 6-10 man, he knows people are going to notice what he’s doing. He’s on his best behavior.”
Mrs. Jenner, mother to Khloe Kardashian, the wife of Mavs forward and former Lakers star Lamar Odom — who hugged his mother-in-law in front of a semi-circle of cameras in the court-level concourse of the Staples Center (no word if she also hugged ex-son-in-law Kris Humphries, whose New Jersey Nets played in the matinee Monday against the Clippers) — walked up to Cuban, flashed a smile and said she wanted to introduce herself. Check out an upcoming episode of “Keeping up with the Kardashians,” as the lights were on and the cameras were rolling — not that Cuban seemed to mind all that much. She wanted to thank Cuban for making Lamar feel at home and that when she comes to Dallas to visit the kids, dinner is on her. After the hug to say hello, some chit-chat and a hug good-bye, Kris and the cameras flitted off to somewhere else.
Left reeling by the July murder of his 24-year-old cousin and a fatal car accident days later that killed a teen pedestrian after the car he was riding in as a passenger collided with a motorcycle, Odom told ESPN.com that he had to be convinced by wife Khloe Kardashian to scrap his plans for a hiatus. “Real close,” Odom said when asked Saturday how close he came to asking the Lakers for a season-long sabbatical. “My wife talked me out of it.
What could be better than one Kardashian (if you’re into that kind of pop culture craze)? Two Kardashians. That exactly what the American Airlines Center got on Wednesday night as both Khloe and her sister, Kim, showed up for the Mavericks-Phoenix Suns game. Khloe, wife of Mavericks forward Lamar Odom, has been a regular at Dallas games this season, of course. Odom played another solid game for the Mavericks, scoring 15 points and adding five rebounds and two steals in Dallas’ 98-89 win over the Suns.
Lamar Odom saw the reports out of Los Angeles that said the Lakers thought he was distracted by the reality show in which he co-stars with wife Khloe Kardashian . Odom said he hasn’t spoken to Mavericks owner Mark Cuban about whether he’ll continue the show. “He seems like the guy that he’ll really like it though; he’s outgoing and rambunctious,” Odom said.
TMZ is reporting that the camera crews from the E! reality TV shows — Khloe and Lamar, and Keeing Up With The Kardashians — will follow Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian to Dallas. The Dallas Mavericks acquired Odom this past Saturday from the Los Angeles Lakers. They also acquired the Kardashians, who have almost dominated the reality TV show world. According to TMZ, cameras will definitely follow Odom and Kardashian on their journey to Dallas, and that the move and their new life in Dallas will be a plot in both shows.
Los Angeles Lakers forward Lamar Odom was a passenger in a car that struck and seriously injured a motocyclist and a pedestrian in his hometown of Queens, New York, on Thursday, according to the New York Post. A publicist for Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, told the newspaper that Kardashian was not with her husband a the time of the accident. A source close to Odom also told the Post that he was not physically injured in the accident, but was “shaken up” by the incident.
Fill in the punchline as you may. Los Angeles Lakers forward (and co-star of Khloé & Lamar) has been named the national spokesperson for Life Insurance Awareness Month, which is in September. Odom will appear in national TV and radio public service announcements beginning in August, which will add Internet presence the next month. Odom was 12 when his mother died at the age of 35 from colon cancer, and the fact that she had insurance enabled him to continue. “When I began my pro career, one of the first things I did was buy life insurance to make sure that my loved ones would always be taken care of,” Odom offers in advertising.” According to the Life Insurance and Market Research Association, 30% of U.S. households have no life insurance.
The June issue of GQ magazine is out, which means it’s time for swimsuit coverage. And who better to model these new shorter swimsuits than the NBA player most likely to be photographed by a beach this summer? That’s why Kris Humphries — who is sure to be snapped frolicking in the surf with his girlfriend, Kim Kardashian, a minimum of 70 times this offseason — got the call. That’s the power of the Kardashian family marketing machine. Just ask Lamar Odom. Even better, Kris was interviewed for the piece, with his lone published quote being “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” as a response to what people should watch if there’s a lockout next year. Not a joke, that is the extent of the words that came out of his mouth that were quoted in this article. Literally just the name of his girlfriend’s reality television show. That’s it.
