Rumor alert: Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian to divorce?

According to an In Touch cover story, Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are ready for a divorce.

Hoopsvibe’s Quick Call:  Keep in mind, this is merely a rumor.

No one knows this to be true; and being that this story came from a gossip magazine, it probably isn’t.  And honestly, I would much rather write about things happening within the NBA than things happening out of it.  But having said that, sometimes, in the words of P.T. Barnum, “Give them what they want.”

In Touch reported that Khloe is “heartbroken” and has given Odom the ultimatum “they need couples therapy — or else.”  The magazine goes on to say that the couple’s marriage has been on the rocks for months because Lamar has been apparently more distant lately and has completely shut down, “pushing Khloe away.”

“She’s doing everything and anything to keep their marriage together,” and “insider” told In Touch.  “She’s dedicated to her marriage and hates the strain they’re under from Lamar pulling back from her.”  I always find myself wondering, where do they find these “insiders” who are willing to provide these personal details?

The magazine also says there have been a lot of “ups and downs” recently and Odom has been extremely stressed about basketball.  Now the story starts to get believable.  I’m not referring to the fact there have been ups and downs (even though many relationships experience that) but more that Odom is stressed about basketball.  Let’s be honest, he has good reason to be.  Just watching him play, Odom certainly isn’t in as good of shape as he’s been in in the past.  In the Clippers loss to the Cavs on Monday night, Odom had two turnovers in just four minutes of play.

Whether or not the rumor is true about Odom getting divorced, I hope things turn around for the guy.  Online celebrity blog, Gossip Cop, which prides itself on the accuracy of the juice it publishes, has reported numerous times that the Odom-Kardashian divorce rumor is all BS.

Regardless, one thing is for certain: Odom needs to start playing better if he wants to keep his spot on an NBA roster.
