Oh no! Does this mean Khloe & Lamar will also have to leave Dallas for good?

More bad news for Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian! Lamar announced April 9 that he will “step away” from the Dallas Mavericks, officially ending his season with the NBA team. This couldn’t come at a worse time for the couple, as TMZ reports they were planning on shooting more footage for their E! reality series Khloe and Lamar.

In an official statement, Lamar said:

“I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”

It’s important to note that Lamar isn’t technically being “cut” from team, but will instead be categorized as “inactive” for the remainder of the season. This will allow him to be traded to another team when the current season is over, as opposed to dropping out of the NBA altogether.

But the real question is: How will this affect Lamar’s marriage to Khloe? On the April 8 episode of Khloé and Lamar, we saw that Lamar’s then-new position on the Mavericks was tacking a serious toll on their relationship. Khloé totally broke down during a phone conversation with concerned mom Kris Jenner.

“I feel like I’m trying, and it’s not going the way that I thought it was going to go,” Khloé said through her tears.

Watch a clip from last night’s episode below, then weigh in with your thoughts on Khloe’s future with Lamar:
