Khloe Kardashian is expected to file for divorce today, fittingly on Friday the 13th, from her husband of four years Lamar Odom.
Khloe has apparently giving up on things in their marriage improving and has decided to call it quits.
The 29-year-old posted a self-empowering message to her Instagram account, writing, “I am strong because I’ve been weak. I am fearless because I’ve been afraid. I am wise because I’ve been foolish”.
Khloe is planning to cite irreconcilable differences as the reason behind the couple’s split when she delivers the legal documents to formally end their four-year marriage on Friday.
Lamar and Khloe should have a relatively easy job in dividing up their assets due to their ironclad prenuptial agreement.
Khloe and Lamar tied the knot in 2009, just four weeks after meeting.
There were obvious issues in their marriage, with reports of his infidelity and drug use making headlines the past few months.
Insiders say the final straw was when Lamar did a bizarre freestyle rap video, where he bragged about cheating on her.
A source said, “The end was a long time coming. Khloe had expressed dire concerns about the marriage ever since she learned about Lamar’s crack addiction earlier this year, but she forestalled divorce for fear he’d overdose or worse.”
Khloe’s impending divorce announcement comes just hours after her “momager” Kris Jenner declared her support for her daughter via a touching post on her website.
Kris wrote, “Perfection doesn’t exist. But I believe in someone being perfectly imperfect. Our imperfections make us all stronger individuals. You are our strength. You at times, think I’m mean to you, I’m not, I’m merely aware that you may be the strongest woman I know. Sometimes I like to test how strong you are and you always amaze me. I love you!”
Khloe, who had been spotted wearing her wedding ring in recent weeks, has now ditched the large rock. She stepped out without her wedding ring at the Hollywood Reporter’s Women In Entertainment breakfast with mom Kris Jenner and sister Kim at the Beverly Hills Hotel on Wednesday.
Lamr Odom has refused to seek treatment for his drug and alcohol problems.
Earlier this week he reportedly pleaded no contest to DUI charges stemming from his August 30 arrest. He was sentenced to three years probation for the misdemeanor in a Los Angeles court. He also agreed to undergo alcohol education courses in addition to paying $1,814 in court fees.
We guess Khloe not getting pregnant during her marriage was actually a blessing in disguise. Hopefully she can move on and settle down with someone in the future.
