Khloe is reportedly desperate to save her marriage and I think it’s really admirable that she doesn’t want to give up on the man she loves! I think she should support Lamar if he chooses to get help for his addictions, because it will only make their relationship stronger!
Khloe Kardashian, you are doing the right thing by standing by your husband Lamar Odom, and you should continue to do so. The fact that you haven’t filed for divorce yet and you raced to see him on Aug. 26, shows how much you want to make your marriage work. If Lamar checks himself into rehab, you should do everything you can to give him the support and love he needs to come back and be a great husband.
Khloe Kardashian: You Should Stand By Lamar Odom If He Goes To Rehab
Khloe, you are definitely going through one of the toughest times in your life. You’ve been married to Lamar for barely four years and you two are already experiencing a very public and emotional heartache. With Lamar’s alleged drug use, and waning NBA career, things have hit rock bottom.
But when you said those vows in 2009 in front of the E! cameras, all of your friends, family and fans knew you meant: for better or for worse. This is the “worse” part but it’s not forever. You can’t only stick by someone in the good times, you have to accept them for the good, bad and ugly.
If Lamar really is struggling with an addiction to crack cocaine, like TMZ is reporting, then he needs you now more than ever. If he decides to check himself into rehab, the best thing you can do is stand by him. It will not only help him get better, but this could strengthen your marriage.
Plus, you stood by him when he went to rehab for 3 weeks in 2012. Although you’ve done it once, maybe the second time around it’ll really work.
You’re not the only celebrity to go through this. There are A-list celebs who have gotten treatment for their addictions, and when their spouses stood by them, it only made their marriages better.
Celebs Who Have Gone To Rehab & Their Spouses Stuck By Them
Khloe, you might think you’re the only one who has been faced with such a tough problem, but you’re not alone. In 2006, Keith Urban checked himself into rehab for drugs and alcohol. The country star had only been married to actress Nicole Kidman for four months! It turns out Nicole staged an intervention over his use of cocaine.
Once out of rehab, when speaking with Oprah Winfrey, Keith said that it only brought him and Nicole closer.
“It was really a profound moment in so many ways,” he said. “The way in which Nic handled that moment was just perfect … Everything was just designed, I believe, for that moment to fuse us together.”
Keith’s marriage isn’t the only one strengthened by overcoming addiction. Although he didn’t go to rehab, Tim McGraw revealed in February of 2013 that he decided to “get sober.” He admitted that his drinking had really affected his marriage to Faith Hill and that she stood by him while he kicked the habit.
“I think it’s a personal choice—when it gets to the point where you think it’s affecting you adversely and it’s affecting your relationships,” he said. “It’s time to make a change, and I thought it was.”
Khloe, standing by Lamar is the right thing to do. You two have been through so much that you can’t turn your back on him now.
