By now, many people have heard that Lamar Odom has been accused of cheating on wife Khloe Kardashian and struggling with drugs. Divorce rumors have since plagued the couple, with everyone’s eyes on their left index fingers to see if the two are wearing their rings. But if the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star were to get divorced from Odom, a broken heart isn’t the only thing the youngest K sister would have to worry about. Most know that the Kardashians are all about business, and endorsements specifically, so if Odom and Kardashian were to get divorced, their joint projects could potentially dry out.
Attorney Steven Eisman, executive partner and director of the matrimonial law department at Abrams Fensterman, exclusively told the International Business Times that if the celebrity couple did go through with a divorce, the 29-year-old brunette beauty could claim there was a dissipation of a martial assets.
She wouldn’t have to worry about losing the shirt off her back, metaphorically speaking, because she and her husband are both in similar financial standings, however Eisman gave the example that if their shared income as a married couple was affected because of Odom’s inability to perform as a basketball player as a result of abusing drugs, then he could potentially have to pay her back for the loss.
“So much depends on the prenuptial agreement,” Eisman said. “What could be in play here is what the prenuptial agreement says about the money they earned together.”
Aside from appearing on “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Odom and the reality star were given their own spin-off “Khloe and Lamar,” which centered around their lives as newlyweds. They also famously made a unisex fragrance together, “Unbreakable Bond.”
Companies don’t want celebrity endorsers who are affiliated with drugs, which could hurt the Kardashian brand, if the companies who back them decide to pull out. Lance Armstrong lost practically all of his endorsements when he admitted to doping in professional cycling the the Tour de France’s he famously competed in, Eisman gave as an example.
“His drug use could cost her if someone pulls away from their joint projects,” the legal expert said. “For Kardashian, if she loses the product line that she was going to be a full partner than that’s money out of her pocket and she could lose all types of opportunities that generate revenue, as a result of his bad acts.”
