After days with his whereabouts unknown, Khloé Kardashian’s husband Lamar Odom has resurfaced in LA. The troubled basketball star was spotted picking up some lunch at a drive-thru this week before heading to the house he shares with the reality star. He seemed in good spirits – and made a point of showing photographers that his wedding ring was still in place.
The NBA star, dressed in a grey t-shirt and a red baseball cap, smiled from behind the wheel of his car as he drove back to the marital home in Tarzana. It has been reported that Lamar has returned to address some serious issues, including alleged drug addictions.
His loyal wife Khloé, 29, is said to be determined to help her husband of four years get his life back on track. On Monday, she was also spotted wearing her wedding ring.
The youngest Kardashian sister has remained tight-lipped since stories of her husband’s alleged addictions, and infidelities, first surfaced.
This week she shared a photo with her Twitter followers; a close-up snap of the pretty star looking at the camera, her face partially covered by her ombre hair.
And just a few days ago, she seemed to make reference to the numerous stories being written about her marriage, angrily writing, “Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk s— about my family…I’m too protective for this s—!”
Khloé is desperate for 33-year-old Lamar to seek help – and for his part, a source close to the sports star told TMZ he is “open to reason and listening to the people who love him the most.”
Among those rooting for Lamar and Khloé is her sister Kim Kardashian. Khloé only recently revealed Lamar’s struggles with substance abuse to her family, and they are all rallying round.
A source told E! that Kim was “shocked” to learn of her brother-in-law’s problems, and is being “very supportive”.
“She only wants what’s best for Khloe,” the insider added.
New mum Kim “would like to see them work it out. She knows how much they love each other. Everyone in the family feels like divorce should be the last option.”
