Khloe and Lamar have made it another year, though this one has definitely been their most trying. But even though they’re on thin ice, it’s remarkable how they’ve fought through everything and haven’t given up. And that’s worth celebrating, right?
On Sept. 27, 2012, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom celebrated their third anniversary with a sexy night together that involved romance and rose petals. Exactly a year later, they’re still together, but things have definitely changed. On the fourth anniversary of their wedding day, let’s look back on a year for Khloe and Lamar that was often sexy, sometimes tragic, and always interesting.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom: The Good Times
Khloe and Lamar’s fourth year started off with a bang when it was announced on Oct. 15 that Khloe would be co-hosting The X Factor. It was really the first time Khloe stepped outside of reality TV, and while there were some stumbles through the season — which led to Khloe and Fox opting out of a second season — the career move showed that the youngest Kardashian sister was her own woman and not at all in the shadow of her family.
And then Khloe and Lamar had another bang (sorry, we had to) when they gave the world a sneak peek into their kinky sex life on the Keeping Up With The Kardashians: Dish It Out special on Oct. 28. Leaning over a sofa in a white bathrobe, Khloe was spanked by Lamar multiple times while saying, “It’s kinky. I like it when I get disciplined.” Saucy!
Khloe Kardashian: Trying For A Baby?
But as Khloe’s sister, Kim Kardashian, announced her first pregnancy, focus shifted to Khloe, the last Kardashian sister not to have her own child. Though reports came out this year claiming that Khloe was pregnant, nothing ever came to fruition, and she actually revealed her fertility issues in a brave interview in the June issue of Cosmopolitan UK:
I just wanted to be like, “Hey, let’s have a baby,” and we would just have one. Kourtney did. And I wish that was the way for me. But it won’t be. I’ll have to take hormones. I do want to have a baby, but I don’t feel the urgency to have one this very moment.
You’ve got to admire Khloe for addressing the issues head on.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom’s Marital Struggles Revealed
But if she thought answering to baby rumors was going to be the most dramatic part of her fourth year with Lamar, she was in for an unfortunate surprise.
On Aug. 23, amid reports that Lamar was cheating and he and Khloe were headed for divorce, a new report on TMZ claimed that their martial struggles were due to Lamar’s alleged battle with drug addiction.
Since that revealing report, Lamar has been living away from Khloe since she gave him the ultimatum that he couldn’t move back into the family house until he agreed to get help. He still hasn’t.
The tail end of their fourth year together — colored by a DUI arrest for Lamar, Twitter rants, and a scary amount of report drug abuse — has definitely been the hardest time these two have had to go through.
But through it all, they’re still married. “Khloe has his back. She’s a good woman,” a source close to Lamar has told HollywoodLife.com exclusively. That sort of support — and yes, tough love — is hard to find these days, and Khloe should be applauded for it. If there’s a silver lining in all of this, that’s it.
There were people asking the very serious question about whether Khloe and Lamar could even make it to their fourth anniversary, but they did! Obviously there’s still a ton of work to do but they’ve certainly proven their dedication and undying love. Even though they may not be spending the big day together, they should still celebrate.
