From whirlwind wedding to a sad divorce - see the dramatic tale of Khloe and Lamar’s relationship
Our gallery charts their relationship in pictures, from the fairy tale wedding to Lamar’s struggles after their split.
As our pictures show, Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom look full of the joys of young love when they start dating in August 2009. They meet at a party for Lamar’s fellow NBA star and teammate Metta World Peace.
The couple hit the red carpet together for a film premiere in September and it’s clear that their romance is progressing quickly.
Just one month after getting together, Khloé marries Lamar in a loved-up ceremony and it’s all filmed for a special episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
They soon settle into married life and get a house in California.
On their first anniversary Lamar surprises Khloé by taking her back to where they got hitched so that they can renew their vows.
Khloe is over the moon about the unexpected ceremony and writes on her blog: ‘I have never been more obsessed with my husband.’
Soon the couple become stars of their own reality show, Khloé & Lamar. It runs for two series in 2011 and 2012 and documents the ups and downs of their marriage, from Lamar’s basketball career to Khloe’s struggle to get pregnant.
They decide not to film over the summer of 2012 though as Khloé says Lamar needs some time out from it.
‘We have a lot on our plate right now,’ she explains.
Sadly things start to go sour in 2013 when the Odoms are hit by rumours of marriage trouble. Rumours of cheating and drug use circulate about troubled Lamar and in August he’s arrested for driving under the influence.
He accepts a sentence of three years’ probation and three months alcohol abuse treatment.
In December 2013 it’s revealed that Khloé Kardashian has filed for divorce from Lamar Odom but the story is far from over.
They remain in contact despite their split and Khloé even admits in April 2015 that she still has strong feelings for her ex – and wishes they were still married.
‘I will never, ever not love Lamar,’ she tells E! ‘I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.’
Their divorce is finalised in July 2015 but Lamar’s private troubles continue.
In October the sports star is found unconscious at a brothel in Las Vegas after several days of partying and is rushed to hospital.
Khloé is said to be ‘inconsolable’ and sets off to be by her former husband’s side.
