Lamar Odom reportedly blames reality TV for basketball troubles, asks Khloe Kardashian for space
Lamar Odom’s unhappiness has been well-documented this season. Since the Lakers traded him to the Mavericks, Odom has not been the same. Rumors of his marital issues with Khloe Kardashian have added to the speculation that Odom is not a happy camper, and a couple of recent reports from gossip magazines and websites are adding to that speculation.
According to In Touch Weekly (via Reality Tea), Odom is blaming Khloe and their reality TV series for his basketball struggles this season. Sources told the magazine things are “really bad” for the couple and that filming “Khloe and Lamar” during the trade made things worse.
“He resents the show for taking his focus off the game,” a source close to Lamar reveals. The source adds that Lamar feels reality television and his association with the Kardashians has ruined his reputation! And Lamar is blaming the show for his trade to Dallas and the all the scrutiny over his personal life for his basketball woes.
As a result of his frustrations, Lamar is isolating Khloe and has even stopped being intimate with her! “He really shut down and told her to leave him alone for awhile,” the friend shares. Lamar is so upset he’s even stopped undergoing fertility treatments with his wife.
A separate report on HollywoodLife.com echoed the stories from In Touch Weekly, saying that Lamar wants to quit TV but that it “could come at the expense of his marriage to Khloe.” Last year it came out that Odom reportedly wanted to quit reality TV after three days of filming, so while we’re taking these reports with a grain of salt we wouldn’t be surprised if they’re true. Whether he quits the reality show or not, Lamar’s life will always be reality TV now he’s tied to the Kardashians.
