Khloe Kardashian certainly knows how to put on a brave face, after enduring months of reports that she and husband Lamar Odom are heading toward divorce. Amid allegations of Odom cheating and engaging in illicit drug use, Kardashian has remained silent, and she continues to wear her wedding ring.
The 29-year-old reality TV star has been using social media to some extent to express her feelings toward the situation, however. Last week on Instagram she posted a cryptic message, “I can’t explain and I won’t even try.” Two weeks ago she posted an even more-obvious message, “She smiles to mask the pain in her heart. She laughs to conceal the tears in her eyes.” The most-obvious statement came when she changed her name on both Twitter on Instagram. It used to read “Khloe Kardashian Odom,” but now simply states, “Khloe Kardashian.”
While she and Odom, who is 33, had their 4-year wedding anniversary last week, they reportedly didn't even see each another. Fans have been quick to show Kardashian support during this difficult time, and one wrote on Kardashian's official Facebook page Tuesday, “I think you’re so amazing and beautiful and love how you carry yourself through all of these hard times!!! You are such an inspiration to me!!!”
The reality star replied, and implied that the rumors regarding her marriage may be true. “I’m trying my best! Kisses,” she said.
If the couple splits, Odom could potentially lose millions of dollars in the divorce settlement.
When the couple married in 2009, they signed a prenup, which reportedly says that Kardashian is owed about $500,000 for every year the pair was married; spousal support totaling $25,000 each month; $5,000 a month for shopping expenses; and $1,000 for beauty care. In addition, their $500,000 Rolls Royce, a $140,000 Porsche Panamera, and Kardashian’s $850,000 engagement ring would be divided among them.
Kardashian's net worth is estimated at about $18 million, while Odom has earned a reported $56 million during his 14-year NBA career.
