Rumors that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's marriage is on the rock grow louder despite repeated denials. The "Keeping Up with the Kardashians" star was recently pictured stepping out without her wedding or engagement band on her ring finger.
Khloe looked glum as she's leaving Equinox gym in Woodland Hills on Thursday, August 23. Clutching a water bottle, she hid her eyes behind oversized dark shades and tried to conceal her face under a hooded sweater. A chunky silver ring was in place of her diamond rock.
Lamar, meanwhile, was recently pictured having his belongings loaded into his car. TMZ reported their marriage problem was caused by his drug problem. The basketball player was allegedly kicked out of the house he shared with his wife of four years after refusing to go to rehab.
Rumor suggests the NBA star has been dealing with drug addiction for two years now. At his wife's advice, he reportedly went to rehab last year with a guard being placed in the facility to prevent him from leaving. He then allegedly checked out after a reluctant three-week stay.
Report said Lamar managed to stay clean when he was playing for the Clippers last season but resumed consuming recreational drugs after the season was over. The former presenter of "The X Factor (US)" has since tried to get him back in rehab but he reportedly refused.
As for rumors that he cheated on her with several women, Khloe was reportedly convinced it did happen but his drug problem was her main concern. "Khloe is more concerned about saving Lamar than ending her marriage," a source said of whether she wanted to get divorced.
Khloe herself recently posted a cryptic message on Instagram, "Never judge someone without knowing the whole story. You may think you understand but you don't." She added later, "Stop trying to figure me out and get to know yourself first."
Lamar is believed to have stayed in a hotel near their neighborhood.
