Lamar Odom wants to do anything he can to save his marriage to Khloé Kardashian, Hollywood Life reported Friday. The only problem is that he keeps messing up.
He was supposed to meet her to reconcile, but instead partied in Las Vegas. “Lamar doesn’t want to lie to Khloé anymore. He’s recently acknowledged to her that he’s slipped recently and that he’s doing his best to make sure that doesn’t happen again,” an insider said.
Odom is “ashamed of his choices” and “doesn’t want to hurt her more than he already has,” the source said. The former Los Angeles Lakers star reportedly cheated on her with several women and his alleged drug use spiraled out of control. Kardashian, 30, has talked about his disappearing act on the family reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” and said she tried to do everything she could to save their marriage and keep their problems a secret.
But communication for the couple isn’t easy. During one episode, Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner said she wanted to call Odom to wish him a happy birthday, but Khloé said he doesn’t answer his phone.
After all that, Odom said he still wants his wife back. “He told her that he needs her love,” the source added.
The only problem is that Kardashian might have a crush on another guy. She’s had an on-again, off-again relationship with rapper French Montana, and now she reportedly has her eye on undefeated boxing champion Floyd Mayweather, Life & Style reported via Hollywood Life.
The rapper took Kardashian to an L.A. Clippers game where Mayweather also was in attendance, and she thought he was attractive. “At one point, Floyd sat next to Khloe, and she was feeling it,” an insider said. “She told a pal, ‘There’s definitely something about him that makes me want to know more!' ”
