Lamar Odom Arrested for DUI: Is This the Breaking Point for His Marriage to Khloe Kardashian?

The NBA star was arrested and charged with DUI early Friday morning in Los Angeles. Can their marriage survive this latest scandal?

It's getting really hard to "keep up" with Lamar Odom.

The basketball player was arrested and charged with a DUI in the San Fernando Valley on Friday, Aug. 30 at 3:54 a.m. after failing numerous sobriety tests, TMZ reports.

According to the California Highway Patrol, Odom "showed objective signs of intoxication" after he was pulled over for driving 50 mph on a freeway with a speed limit of 65 mph. He was taken to Van Nuys Jail where he refused to take all chemical tests. He was released on $15,000 bail.

The bust comes just days after People and TMZ first reported that Odom has been battling a serious drug addiction for two years.

According to TMZ, he went to rehab last August for crack cocaine, but continued using the drug after basketball season ended.

The site also reported that the Keeping Up with The Kardashians star allegedly went missing after his wife of almost four years, Khloe Kardashian, staged an intervention and kicked him out of their home.

"It's a really hard time for Khloe," a source told People. "She's kept this secret for almost two years trying to save Lamar and their marriage."

Their relationship has also been plagued with infertility issues and cheating scandals.

In July, Star reported that Odom had been cheating on Kardashian with Jennifer Richardson, carrying on a year-long affair with the woman he met at a strip club. A month later, lawyer Polina Polonsky came forward and claimed that she also had an affair with the NBA star.

Back in May, Kardashian put her E! spinoff Khloe and Lamar on hold to work on her marriage and provide support for her husband. "I like to think divorce is not an option," she told People.

But can Odom's latest blunder be an exception?

The New York Daily News reports that Kris Jenner has allegedly contacted a divorce laywer because Khloe is "too emotional" to see things clearly. Hopefully it doesn't come to that -- and Odom gets the help he needs.
