TMZ reported that Khloe will file for divorce as early as Friday, and will cite irreconcilable differences as the reason for the split.
The reality star and Odom tied the knot in the 2009 after only dating three months. The rift between the couple began earlier this year when Odom was accused of cheating on her and it was revealed that he was also smoking crack—doesn’t he know better?
In August, Lamar went missing for days and shortly afterward he was arrested for a DUI. He just entered a plea deal in his DUI case by agreeing to three years of probation and entering a drug treatment program. Instead of his legal troubles being behind him, Odom now has to deal with a divorce drama, though it won’t compare to her sister Kim’s divorce from Chris Humphries which lasted significantly longer than their marriage.
She stood by his through the crack smoking and the DUI, but TMZ reported that the “final straw” for Khloe was when he released a strange freestyle rap video in which he supposedly says, “And when Khloe’s out of town / I still be on the DL.” Odom also allegedly talks about using drugs, money and cheating and appears to be in a drug haze.
“She flip-flopped several times, but she can’t imagine having kids with someone who refuses to seek help for his disease,” a source told Us Weekly about Khloe’s impending divorce.
“After she saw the video, Khloe demanded Lamar go to rehab … but he refused,” one source told Radar Online. “Lamar admitted being under the influence when the video was shot, but insisted to his wife that he was once again sober. Sadly, now, Khloe has decided that she is done with all of Lamar’s lies and manipulation.”
As for the money, the couple apparently has a rock-solid prenuptial agreement which kept their finances separate. They don’t have children so they don’t have to worry about the arduous child custody arrangements.
There is no indication that either Khloe or Odom will contest the prenuptial agreement, but it is possible of they argue the agreement is unfair or unconscionable. Khloe is worth an estimated $11 million while Odom is worth $56 million, a significantly larger amount.
Thus far it appears that Khloe just wants to move on and be done with the whole drama, but divorces often get contentious down the road so it’s possible that she may decide she wants some of Odom’s millions.
Many couples include an infidelity clause into their prenuptials and Life & Style reported that Khloe included such a clause in her prenuptial. That means that she could try to get some money out of the divorce if she can prove Odom cheated on her.
This is the third divorce for the Kardashian clan over the past year. First there was Kim whose divorce to Kris Humphries was finalized early this year just before she gave birth to Kayne West’s first child. Then Momager Kris spilt with her long-time husband Bruce Jenner.
