She has given him an ultimatum to clean up his act otherwise she’s filling for divorce, but that seems to have had little impact on Lamar Odom’s increasingly troubling behavior.
On Wednesday, Khloé Kardashian and her estranged husband reportedly had a brief late night meeting at their Tarzana home, after which, Lamar took off alone back to his downtown LA loft.
The very next day, in what is perhaps the most telling sign yet that their marriage is all but over, Khloé dropped Odom from her Twitter display name [she has already cut Lamar’s last name from her Instagram account].
The couple should be in a celebratory mood, with Friday marking their 4th anniversary of their wedding, but it appears Khloé is the one suffering the most as Lamar appears to have no understanding how his behavior is affecting his wife.
Telling,Khloé alluded to this in a tweet on Sept 1, writing: “As much as I wish I were made of steel . . . I’m not.”
Then she followed it up the next day, with a reposted quote from actress Lauren London.
She wrote: “Sometimes you just gotta be your own hero and save your own little heart. Because sometimes, the people you can’t imagine living without, can actually live without you.”
Thursday, the 29-year-old was at it again,referencing a quote from Alice In Wonderland as if to highlight just how much her world has been turned upside down.
She wrote: “The Mad Hatter: Have I gone mad? Alice: I’m afraid so. You’re entirely bonkers. But I’ll tell you a secret. All the best people are.”
It has been claimed Friday morning that Lamar is trying to woo his wife back, with TMZ reporting that he plans to spend “well over $100,000” on an anniversary present and hopes to whisk the reality star off to Santa Barbara today where they would spend the night. [Friday is also the day of Lamar’s scheduled DUI arraignment which RadarOnline is reporting the former Clipper star’s lawyers have asked to be postponed.]
Khloé, however, is said to not want to spend any time alone with the basketball player in his current state.
But she hasn’t entirely given up on the notion that she and Lamar will live happily ever after.
One person who regularly speaks to Khloé, told TMZ she’s saying, “I’m just hoping for a miracle.”
While a source close to the family tells PEOPLE exclusively that she is willing to put in the work to save her marriage.
“She still wants to save their marriage; she wants him to get better, but there is a lot to work out,” the source says.
“She’s taking everything one day at a time and concentrating on herself. Everything with Lamar is very unclear,” the source adds.
The source also says that although the couple are now leading separate lives, Kardashian did not see trouble brewing on the horizon.
“She never thought she would be in this position,” the source says. “Two years ago she would have thought they’d be happily married with kids. It’s been so hard to carry this secret and try to save not only Lamar but their marriage. It’s taken a toll but she’s one fierce lady.”
