If you've been following Kardashian news, which honestly, I haven't, but it kind of smacks you in the face no matter what, you're aware of the rumors swirling around Khloe Kardashian and her husband Lamar Odom.
First, rumors came out about Lamar Odom cheating on Khloe Kardashian. While Khloe reportedly remained faithful to Lamar, it's been said that he's had many affairs throughout their relationship, including a long term rendezvous. After this news broke, Khloe was spotted looking stressed and not wearing her wedding ring.
Next, news came out that the pair had separated, although this has been reported in the past and they've denied the allegations. However, the separation wasn't about Lamar's infidelity - it was about his drug use. Per TMZ regarding Lamar's time on the Dallas Mavericks:
We're told that during at least part of the time he was playing for the Mavs, Lamar was smoking Oxycontin and cocaine.It was stated that the pair separated but Khloe's not giving up on Lamar, even after he disappeared for 72 hours, possibly on a drug binge. She and Lamar arranged a secret meeting to discuss their relationship because Khloe doesn't want to give up on Lamar or their union.
Odom's problems were so severe, he was cut from the Mavs mid-season and paid in full just so he would go away.
I give Khloe a lot of credit for standing by her man. No woman (or person, for that matter), deserves to be treated badly, and standing by her man through cheating and drug use, especially in the public eye, must be tough. But Khloe, of all the Kardashians, knows what she wants and is willing to fight for it in the right way. And I believe she's doing the right thing by trying to save her marriage. Will she be able to do it? Maybe. Should she walk away if Lamar chooses drugs and infidelity over her? Also yes. But the fact that she still cares and wants to save Lamar and her relationship shows us that she's a strong woman who's willing to fight the good fight to make things work. While I'm not a Kardashian fan in general, I give Khloe credit for being a strong person who goes after what she wants.
