After almost four years of marriage, this may be the end of the line for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's relationship.
"They're separated for the moment," a source tells People. "Khloe is spending many nights at her mom's house and Lamar is at his place [in downtown L.A.]"
The news of their separate living situation is a long time coming, considering the reality-star couple's summer of bad luck. In July, a woman came forward claiming to have slept with Odom, with a second alleged mistress coming forward in August. TMZ then reported that Odom has been battling a serious addiction to drugs (either crack, cocaine or Oxycontin). After a DUI arrest, Odom entered rehab in early September, only to leave after just one day.
Another source claims that friends of Odom thought his wife had saved him from his addiction, "but in reality she never even knew about his drug issues."
"The whole situation is so sad," the insider says. "She wants to save her marriage, but Lamar doesn't and he's not in his right mind to do so. So what can Khloe do?"
Despite the off-camera drama, Kardashian is nothing but smiles when the lens is focused on her. She posted a photo of herself wearing her wedding ring on Sept. 11 and another with her friends on Sept. 15.
We want to believe that this isn't the end for the couple; their wedding anniversary is less than two weeks away, on Sept. 27. But things seem to be getting worse day by day, and the pair don't appear to be on the same page in terms of where their relationship stands. If they're living apart, hopefully they're still getting together to work through their differences -- and, perhaps most importantly, get Odom the help he needs.
