On the Jan. 20 installment of ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ fans saw a devastating side of Khloe and Lamar’s marriage that had never been seen before. Lamar called Khloe while he was noticeably under the influence, and their painful conversation was heartbreaking to watch.
Poor Khloe Kardashian. Though the 29-year-old’s marriage to Lamar Odom is now ancient history, fans got a shocking peek at what went wrong when the Keeping Up With The Kardashians cameras caught a devastating argument between the two from those crucial days before the divorce papers were filed.
Lamar Odom’s Incoherent Phone Call To Khloe Kardashian
On the second night of KUWTK‘s double-decker Season 9 premiere, Khloe was trying her best to mend her broken marriage to Lamar. However, things were made worse when Lamar’s father Joe sent out a public message condemning the Kardashians. Lamar called Khloe to apologize, but his speech was so slurred and erratic that it quickly became clear that there was something very, very off with Lamar.
Things got so bad, in fact, that Khloe had to remind Lamar that he needed to be at their home the next day or else his lawyer would drop him as a client. Lamar responded sadly, “That’s the story of my life.”
The worst part, however, came when Lamar literally begged Khloe to let him spend the night. His speech was slurred to the point where it was hard to understand what he was saying, and poor Kendall and Kylie looked absolutely terrified.
Lamar Odom Cut Out Khloe Kardashian After Drug Problems
Of course, Khloe was very familiar with Lamar’s reported drug problems by this point. She admitted to Kris that she hadn’t seen Lamar for two months before the night of the dreaded phone call, but for good reason — he completely cut her out when he was battling his drug issues.
“I’ve been in hiding because I’m afraid of people,” Khloe admitted to big sis Kourtney during the first night of the KUWTK premiere. Paparazzi were waiting outside of Dash when the girls left the store, yelling cruel and racist things like “‘Are you going to pick up Lamar from Skid Row?’” to a clearly devastated Khloe. Khloe then tried to warn Lamar about the cruel rumors that were being spread, but he wouldn’t even answer the phone!
What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Were you shocked by Lamar’s call to Khloe? Do you think that he was under the influence?
