Things have been rather quiet on the Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom front. Last we heard, the pair were concentrating on their “unbreakable” relationship rather than, say, Lamar’s raging crack addiction. Well, now Khloe has broken her silence to let the world know they shouldn’t worry – she’s trying to help him!
Here’s how it went down on Keeping Up with the Kardashians – because how else does his family deal with anything when it’s not televised? (via DS)
“A lot’s been going on in the past couple of years, just with me and Lamar, and I’ve made that choice myself to keep that within my marriage,” she said. “But lately it’s getting bigger than me… Sometimes things are bigger than yourself. I don’t have a plan – I don’t know what the next step is.”
Khloe, who admitted that it is “scary” and “not easy” dealing with these problems with the paparazzi camped outside her house, also admitted that she is struggling to come up with new ideas to help her husband.”What am I supposed to do? I’ve done everything,” she said.
When Rob advised her to “let him figure it out”, she replied: “If someone gets their legs cut off, or you get breast cancer, do you just leave someone because they’re slowing down your life? I’m trying to help and save him.”Rob pointed out that Odom is “really hurting” his sister, saying in private that he hates seeing Khloe “hurt” and is sad to see his “best friend” and “brother” going through a “really dark period”.
Well, here’s something Khloe needs to understand. Yes, you stand by someone when they are going through something difficult. But getting diagnosed with cancer – which quite often is NOT PREVENTABLE – is quite different than watching someone repeatedly choose to pick up a crack pipe and smoke it. Sorry, I know that a lot of people will argue about the psychological facts of addiction, but people CAN beat it… if they want to. And if they don’t? Then you’re going to ruin your life at the same time as sitting around watching them ruin their own.
