Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are reportedly living separate lives after allegations that the NBA player has been cheating on his reality star wife. After dating for a month, the couple were married in 2009.
On Friday, Kardashian visited Odom at the Garden Inn Hilton in Calabasas, Calif., where he has been staying as of late. Despite persistent divorce rumors, the 29-year-old’s mother and manager Kris Jenner has insisted that the couple isn't splitting up.
“Khloe and Lamar are absolutely not getting divorced," Jenner told E! News. "There’s been no talk of divorce.”
The couple hasn't been seen together this summer since the cheating allegations. Kardashian attended her half-sister Kylie Jenner’s Sweet 16 celebrations on Aug. 10 without her husband, causing more speculation that there's indeed trouble in paradise.
Two women have come forward in the past month, claiming to have been with the 33-year-old athlete. Polina Polonsky, 33, a lawyer in Sherman Oaks, Calif., told Star magazine this month that she was intimate with Odom for six weeks earlier this summer. She even passed a polygraph test backing her claims. “I was under the impression that he had left Khloe and that’s why he was living at the Roosevelt,” she said. “He acted completely available and we definitely had mutual attraction.”
Prior to her, another woman, Jennifer Richardson, 29, told the magazine that she had a tryst with the Los Angeles Clippers forward in January 2012 after meeting him at a strip club in Dallas. At the time, Odom was playing for the Mavericks and Richardson said she often traveled with him to road games, adding that they would sleep together before he returned to Los Angeles and reunited with his wife. Richardson also claims Odom even told her that he loved her on a number of occasions.
The alleged mistress says she ended the affair in March because she didn't want to remain a secret. In her interview, she apologized for the yearlong affair and said she didn't know Odom’s marriage was “real.”
