Khloe Kardashian’s latest display photo on her Twitter account does not feature her husband, sparking rumors that Lamar Odom might be finally out of the picture.
For a long time, Kardashian’s display picture was an intimate photograph of the couple wearing similar hats with the message “Best Friends.” Now, that has given way to the latest photograph featuring her standing on top of two parked Mercedes Benz SUVs, leading a HollywoodLife report to speculate that the photo swap might have been influenced by her mother, Kris Jenner, who wants Kardashian to divorce Odom.
“Kris is desperate for Khloe to divorce Lamar,” an insider told HollywoodLife. “She thinks he is bad news and that Khloe can do much better.”
“Another reason Kris wants Khloe to dump Lamar is because he has absolutely nothing to offer her or the family. He isn’t officially signed with any team. He won’t go to rehab, and he is a bad influence on Rob [Kardashian]. Kris thinks that Lamar has tarnished the family name with philandering and drug use,” the source added.
Odom, who checked in to a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center after Kardashian gave him an ultimatum, is reportedly out after only one day as he was not ready to seek treatment for his addiction, another HollywoodLife report said.
“Lamar checked into Robert Shapiro’s rehab center, Pickford Lofts, in West LA and pulled a AMA–Against Medical Advice. He left a day later,” a source told HollywoodLife.
“This is common for a lot of users entering rehab against their will,” the source added. “Lamar isn’t ready — he hasn’t hit rock bottom yet. The only reason he checked in is because Robert Shapiro gave him an ultimatum: 'Check into my rehab and I will help you with your legal problems…but ONLY if you check in!'”
Odom was arrested on Aug. 30 for driving under the influence after he failed multiple sobriety tests.
