Khloe Kardashian, even though HollywoodLife has learned that Lamar wants to get his act together and see you on your fourth anniversary, Sept. 27, you need to stick to your tough love stance and refuse to see him.
Khloe Kardashian, we know it’s going to be a heartbreaking and lonely fourth anniversary for you, with your marriage on hold while your husband, Lamar Odom, battles a severe drug addiction — but nevertheless, you need to refuse to see him.
Khloe Kardashian Spending 4th Anniversary With Lamar Odom? — Don’t Do It
Khloe, this is for Lamar’s own good. No matter how difficult it is, you need to continue to give him tough love, and keep sending the message that until he goes into rehab and begins to address his addiction, he cannot see you.
You’ve already tried being the understanding, loving wife in order to get him to seek help. That didn’t work. He became more irresponsible and got deeper into his drug use. The only hope you have of saving him and your marriage is if you stand firm and don’t give in to reigniting your relationship. Seeing you has to be a reward for Lamar for seeking real help. If you give in and see him on your fourth anniversary and celebrate in some way with him, then you will continue to enable him.
Khloe Kardashian: Addiction Experts Advise Her Not To Speak To Lamar Odom
Khloe, we reported that you sought expert advice from addiction counselors after Lamar’s DUI arrest on Aug. 30, and they told you that you need to distance yourself from Lamar at this point — and you’ve been doing a great job of that. Trust me, it will only be more painful for you to see him and it will also delay any potential he has of recovering.
Lamar is very misguided if he thinks that seeing you for your anniversary could actually make you feel better or help the situation in any way. As long as he’s taking drugs, the situation is not better, and your marriage can’t be put back together.
As much as Lamar thinks it would be a good thing for you to see each other, the best anniversary gift that he could ever give you is to go to rehab and commit to getting sober. It’s only when he is actively working on getting drug-free that there’s any potential for you two.
Khloe, you can’t put your life on hold waiting for Lamar to get his act together, addiction experts have told HollywoodLife.com. In fact, they’ve advised you to stay away from him as long as he’s in this state.
“Lamar needs to get help right now! His life is out of control and in danger. Khloe must give him the ultimatum that if he doesn’t get help, she can’t live in the same space with him again,” advises Dr. Jeff Gardere, the chief mental health contributor to Healthguru.com.
Other experts say the same thing: ”[Khloe] needs to send Lamar a clear message that she is unwilling to live with a practicing addict and that if he doesn’t seek help, she needs to move on,” LA addiction expert Steven Orenstein says.
So you see, Khloe, at this point, you have to do what’s best for you in the longterm — and that may be a life without Lamar. If Lamar begs and pleads to see you on your anniversary, don’t do it. You’ll have plenty of time to celebrate your marriage again once he’s committed to having a sober life.
