This arrest will definitely be a huge problem for Khloe and Lamar as they work to mend their marital issues, which are allegedly due to Lamar’s two-year-long battle with drug abuse.
HollywoodLife.com reported exclusively that Lamar moved back into the family house on Aug. 26 after being kicked out for about a week for reportedly refusing Khloe and her family’s request to go to rehab.
Khloe has been dedicated to sticking by Lamar while he struggles to get clean, as a source told HollywoodLife.com exclusively, “Khloe’s not going anywhere. He’s in his marriage as best as he can be. They will work it out — the two of them can handle this!”
All that may change though now that he’s been taken in for a DUI.
