Being a Kardashian (even if your name isn’t Kim), comes with a very bright spotlight. Over the past few years, the Kardashian family has become a mainstay in the public eye. It seems as though every single move they make, every sneeze that comes out of their mouth, every embarrassing eye-popping moment, is captured on film. And that’s exactly the way they want it. The family’s infamous standing as reality TV icons is forever cemented in celebrity status. Their show Keeping up with the Kardashians has provided some insane moments and vital exposure. It also has allowed the Kardashian clan to remain relevant and has aided them in branding themselves in a variety of ways.
Khloe Kardashian was introduced to the world as the youngest of the original Kardashian sisters. She was tall and a bit awkward in comparison to older sisters Kourtney and Kim. To start with, Khloe was also much taller than her other sisters. This came in handy when she fell for basketball star, Lamar Odom. Odom was a talented basketball player and was coming off successful seasons with the Los Angeles Lakers in which he was a key part of two title runs. Khloe and Lamar fell in love with one another and their relationship was captured by television cameras on Keeping up with the Kardashians and then their own show, Khloe and Lamar.
As is true with many reality show romance casualties, problems slowly but surely begin to surface. As those problems surfaced right before the public, it added pressure on their relationship. Some of the moments were fun and crazy while others were sad and dramatic. These are Khloe and Lamar’s 11 Most Insane Moments.
11 Superstitious Proposal
10 Candy Crush
Everyone is entitled to their sweet tooth. Lamar Odom, with his charismatic smile and shy personality, comes off like a fun-loving big kid. So it’s no surprise that he has an affliction for candy. “It’s like there’s s—t in the bed!” Khloe exclaimed after finding melted chocolate in their bed at their Tarzana, California, mansion.
9 Swimming Lessons
Many people are able to get swim lessons when they are young. Starting at a young age is so much easier than learning things as an adult. So when the Kardashian clan learned that Lamar Odom wasn’t exactly a fish in the water, they went into action, attempting to teach him how to swim. The moments were caught on camera and provided a great deal of hilarity along the way.
7 Lamar Goes Rogue
Lamar Odom had a great deal of success come his way. He also has a great deal of problems. The star basketball player is constantly in the limelight. His kind personality and easy going nature, the money and celebrity that has come his way, have all made him a target for others. Women are constantly available for a man of Lamar Odom’s stature.
6 The Divorce
Divorce can be downright brutal. There is nothing good that comes from a married couple imploding and having to end their marriage. It can be even worse when these things happen on television. The moments Khloe and Lamar spent together on the two reality shows were heartwarming and fun loving. The world fell in love with what appeared to be two kind human beings.
5 5. Daddy Knows Best
Lamar Odom’s father, Joe, was none too happy to see and hear reports over his son’s mental state. Joe was upset over the Kardashian’s treatment of Lamar and their ability to spin news stories however they wanted while their son shied away from statements and publicity. With no one to defend Lamar, his father, Joe, stepped up and fired some shots back at the Kardashians.
4 Internet War: Destiny V Khloe
Lamar Odom has a 17-year-old daughter, Destiny from a previous relationship and a 13-year-old son as well. Destiny was also angered at the public shaming that was befalling her emotionally wounded father. She spoke up after Khloe officially filed divorce papers and rushed to her father’s defense. Destiny wrote on her Facebook page that Khloe and Lamar's relationship was destined for failure. "No one thought they were going to last, so honestly, who [cares]."
3 The Dodger
Soon after Khloe and Lamar split up and divorce proceedings had begun, it was rumored that Kardashian was dating Matt Kemp of the Los Angeles Dodgers (now with the San Diego Padres). Kemp, the Dodgers star centerfielder at the time, was an all-star and force in the baseball world.
2 Lamar Odom Overdoses
On a fall day in October 2015, Lamar Odom ended up in a Las Vegas brothel, unconscious, a few moments away from death. What is seemingly rock bottom for the former basketball standout, Odom had headed to the rural brothel in the desert to escape the world. Following the death of his close friend and the demise of his marriage, Odom had a lot of drama on his mind. His escape involved cocaine, numerous herbal sexual stimulants and prostitutes. But after a couple days of constant attention, sexual and emotional, Odom ended up on the ground with pink liquid foam coming out of his nose and mouth.
1 Khloe Calls Off Divorce
Despite Lamar Odom’s romp at a brothel that involved women and drugs, Khloe Kardashian has seized all divorce papers from going through. Odom is still in the hospital and not speaking to the press and the Kardashians have been very tight-lipped about this. Are they going to make another go of it? Kardashian had been dating James Harden but there are reports that Harden allegedly cheated on her with a stripper. To add to the rumor mill, Odom, while still officially married to Kardashian, is on her medical plan. If they remain married, he is covered by what is going to come out to be a very hefty medical bill.
Odom’s recovery calls from physical and speech therapies to move past the damage done by his coma. It is not clear how much therapy Odom needs at this point, but Khloe has stated that she will be by his side all the way through. So it appears as though their divorce is officially called off and Khloe and Lamar are about to make another run at marital bliss. Only time will tell.
