Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom struggled to make it work, but a combination of rumored infidelity and severe drug use on Odom's part let to the demise of their marriage and impending divorce. And it may have also led to the recent robbery in Kardashian's home.
TMZ reports that Odom owed his drug dealers upwards of $55,000 between two dealers — $15,000 to one and $40,000 to another.
The report alleges that Odom assured his dealers that he was rich and could afford to pay his debts, but that at times he would refuse payment and say that the drugs were poor quality, or "whack." (Uh, buddy? All crack is whack. Even Whitney Houston knew that.)
Sources say that Odom was receiving text messages threatening to break into his home for the cash if necessary. Odom since left to play basketball in Spain ... without paying up. You guys connecting the dots here?
This week, Kardashian and Odom were victims of a jewelry heist from their marital home, losing upwards of $250,000 worth of watches and gold chains. There was no sign of forced entry into the mansion, which neither of them was living in at the time: Kardashian had sold the property to Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco and only discovered the missing bling when she and her momager, Kris Jenner, went to clean it out for the move.
As of yet, police don't know who stole the jewelry, but they suspect it may be linked to another Kardashian theft: $50,000 in cash was stolen from Khloe's sister Kourtney's Tarzana, California mansion. Neither theft showed any signs of forced entry into either home, so police think they may have been inside jobs from someone with links to employees of the family properties.
Here's hoping everyone involved is brought to justice. And as for Odom? We're hoping he gets help ... and learns to show his receipts.
