- Twitter: Khloe and Lamar
The marital woes between Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom took a big turn during the family's reality television show, "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."
The revelation came about after Odom called Khloe at her mother's house and confided in her younger half- sister, Kylie.
"Holy moly! There's a lot of emotional issues I think Lamar has," Khloe said on the show. "I do want to help or cater to Lamar but also, there's only so much anybody can take."
Khloe went on to reveal that her husband is not in a good place and that she has been trying to help him through this part in his life.
"Lamar is a very depressed person, which is sad but understandable for everything he's been through in his life," she said.
"I do love Lamar with every ounce of who I am but it's really scary when someone's in such a deep low and you know they're kind of relying on you to get them out and you're trying and you're trying and you're trying and nothing's really working."
Even with those attempts other members of the family are worried the negativity surrounding the situation with damage the families brand and reputation, according to reports.
"The headlines surrounding Lamar's womanizing and drug addiction are tacky according to Kim, and she doesn't want to be associated with it. Khloe has maintained that she isn't ready to pull the plug on their marriage. The last thing Khloe needs is her family turn on her. Khloe left the house in tears," a source told Radar Online.
Members of the Kardashian family are worried that Odom, 33, is addicted to the painkiller OxyContin and sleeping pill, Ambien, according to reports. The new developments come on top the recent cheating allegations levied by three women against Odom. However, there is a possibility that these are nothing more than vicious rumors.
"Kris is seeing red," a source told Hollywood Gossip. "Kris fiercely protects the Kardashian brand name and empire and to now have it associated with a drug problem, to her, it's unacceptable. She used to be very close to Lamar, but she is disgusted by what has happened."
