Lamar Odom Feels Khloe Kardashian is Using Him to Boost ‘KUWTK’ Ratings

Posted by PZ on January 21st, 2014


‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ has returned to our screens and it looks as though Khloe Kardashian is happy to allow her divorce from husband Lamar Odom to be spoken about on the show. She broke down on the episode, commenting candidly that she is afraid to go out because of what she is hiding (Lamar’s cheating and drug rumors). She also describes herself as a “shattered person” because of their relationship breakdown:

 ”I’ve been in hiding because I’m afraid of people. I can’t look at people in the eyes. And I’m not even the one who did anything. I need to get my life in order, but I love to work, as it distracts me, but I go home and I’m a shattered person.”

A source has spoken on Lamar’s behalf, commenting that he never wanted Khloe to carry that burden and become involved in his problems. He wanted to leave her out of it so it wouldn’t affect her in any way:

 ”He never asked her to feel that way or put her life on hold to help him. He went about his business and wanted to be left alone. He needed space to do whatever he wanted to do and he did so away from Khloé so he wouldn’t hurt her.”

Lamar is annoyed because he thinks the family are using the divorce to boost the show’s ratings and he feels that he is being portrayed badly by Khloe. This is a bad time for his to receive negative press as he is currently trying to re-build his basketball career and is worried the show will destroy his chances:

 ”The last thing Lamar needs in his life is to be portrayed as a schmuck. Khloé has assured him that it won’t be bad, but how can it not be? Lamar is afraid that his drug use and cheating will be addressed on the show. At the same time, he is trying to make a career comeback and he thinks this is going to hinder and hurt those efforts. He feels he’s going to be used to get ratings for the Kardashians.”
