Khloe Kardashian files for divorce

Khloe Kardashian‘s struggling relationship with troubled NBA star Lamar Odom has finally come to a head – according to TMZ and several other popular gossip outlets. The reality star filed court papers in Los Angeles yesterday and cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason for the split

The television personality is not asking for spousal support and splitting any assets should be clean as they have a prenup and have kept their property separate.

News of the divorce comes after months of speculation surrounding the couple with Lamar’s alleged drug abuse putting a strain on the marriage.

In August this year the sportsman was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence and had a spell in rehab soon after.

In September, reports claiming the couple had been living apart surfaced after the pair had not been seen together in weeks.

And Khloe, who was pictured without her wedding ring at The Hollywood Reporter’s 22nd annual Women In Entertainment Breakfast Honoring Oprah Winfrey on Wednesday, was said to have been left distraught when a video of Lamar emerged in November featuring a rap in which he claims he cheated on his television star wife while she was out of town.

The video is said to have been the final straw for Khloe despite she and Lamar reportedly attempting to repair their relationship by attending couple’s therapy.

Khloe has posted a number of cryptic messages online in recent months which appeared to relate to her turbulent personal life.

Just the day before she filed the divorce papers, Khloe posted an image on photo sharing website Instagram which contained such a message.

It read: “I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise because I’ve been foolish.”
