Khloe Kardashian-Lamar Odom reunion: He says they’re ‘unbreakable’

Another week, another batch of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom breakup-reconciliation rumors.

The latest in the saga is that the reality TV star and her basketball star husband reunited at a Kanye West concert Monday at Staples Center -- the same place where Odom has played for both the L.A. Clippers and Lakers.

Odom, 33, was notably absent from the latest headline-making family affair: sister-in-law Kim Kardashian’s surprise wedding proposal from rapper West in San Francisco on Oct. 21.

But on Monday, Odom joined several Kardashian clan members -- Khloe, Kim, Kris Jenner, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Bruce’s kids, Brody and Brandon -- at the concert. TMZ reports that the reunion was orchestrated by Khloe’s older sis Kim.

The embattled basketball player was invited and showed up alone, but joined his wife of four years inside for the concert. Odom, who has been embroiled in cheating rumors brought on by his alleged struggle with a drug addiction, is said to have been clean and sober for several weeks and the Kardashians are “supporting his recovery and wanted him to have a good time,” TMZ reported.

However, despite the reunion, the pair is reportedly not back together, the site said.

But that seems to be a contradictory account from the one Odom gave to Us Weekly on Wednesday.

“We’re wonderful. We’re unbreakable,” he told the mag at Inside Jokes Comedy Club in L.A.. “That’s why I wear my wedding ring.”

“It is a beautiful ring,” the b-baller noted. “From a beautiful wife.”

The Kardashians’ E! reality show has been frustratingly skating around the whole breakup issue, with the latest episode showing Khloe taking a concerted interest in women struggling with addiction at the Downtown Women’s Center in Los Angeles.

Odom is also on board with taking random drug tests when his wife requests them, Radar Online reports, in order to save his troubled union.

Though they aren’t officially back together, they’re said to be “on a path that will likely end up in a reconciliation,” an insider told the site.

“Lamar has volunteered to undergo random drug tests anytime that Khloe requests. The drastic maneuver impressed Khloe, but she is still is very concerned that Lamar has refused to go to rehab,” the source said.


“Lamar has also stopped hanging out with his shady drug friends, and has cut off all contact with them. There was a time when Khloe would call Lamar and he wouldn’t call her back for hours, or even days, as he would disappear on drug binges.”

But now he’s reportedly taking every call from her or calling her right back

“Lamar is doing everything possible to try and get his marriage back on track,” the source added.

Kardashian and Odom have reportedly been going on secret dates to the movies and “low-key dinners in the Valley” away from the prying lenses of the paparazzi, Radar and E! News said.

“Khloe is often dropped off by her assistant because they are truly trying to work on their marriage out of the spotlight. Lamar has spent the night with Khloe in their Tarzana mansion, but he hasn’t moved back in, yet,” the source continued.

As for how Khloe’s actually doing, sister Kim Kardashian told Jay Leno on Wednesday that “she’s doing good, she’s doing really good, and I think as a family all you want for anyone and for your friends is just to be happy. That’s all you can ask for.”

On Thursday, Khloe Kardashian took to Twitter to take aim at no apparent target.

“Act as if you trust people.... But know you can only trust yourself,” she wrote. “I control my destiny.”


“Delusions make me dizzy,” she continued, adding, “Scary when people believe their own lies.”
