Khloé Kardashian is just saying no to Lamar Odom and his drug habit. Eight months after the former NBA player overdosed at a Nevada brothel, “he is using again,” a source close to Kardashian says in the new issue of Us Weekly. “So Khloé had to put her foot down and stop helping him out.”
To start, she kicked Odom out of the Calabasas, California, home she had leased for him. The rental is in the same gated community as the Kardashians’ own $7 million mansion.
“More than anything, Khloé wants to be in Lamar’s life,” says the insider, “but only if he gets healthy.”
Though an Odom pal insists he hasn’t returned to drugs, the 36-year-old was seen drinking in early May at a bar inside L.A.’s Beverly Center mall. “He has definitely been partying,” says a second source.
And the Strong Looks Better Naked author, 31, refuses to have a front-row seat to his downward spiral. Adds the first source, “She can’t watch him fall apart again.”
As Us Weekly previously reported, Kardashian filed for divorce for the second time on Thursday, May 26. The single star previously filed for divorce in December 2013 after four years of marriage. She stalled the proceedings during Odom’s hospitalization and recovery back in October.
“It’s not the future that you’re afraid of,” she tweeted after the June 12 episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which focused on her divorce. “It’s repeating the past that makes you anxious.” Want more?
