Khloe and Lamar tied the knot after just four weeks of knowing one another. Though family and friends had their doubts about the marriage lasting, Kardashian walked down the aisle and said her ‘I do’s’ in the backyard of parents Kris and Bruce Jenner’sCalabasas, California home. Khloe and Lamar quickly became the couple everyone wanted to be. They were best friends; so happy and in love – at least, they seemed to be.
Unfortunately, what we saw play out on the family’s hit reality TV series and what went on behind the closed doors of their sprawling mansion were two very different things. Lamar battled with an alleged substance abuse problem and serious depression, while Khloe struggled to be there for her man and keep their issues under lock and key.
It wasn’t long before rumors began swirling about the severity of Lamar’s addictions and potential infidelity. Things came to a head when Lamar was pulled over and arrested for suspicion of DUI after he was seen “driving in a serpentine manner.
Because they’ll always be one of our favorite Hollywood couples, we’re taking a trip down memory lane and reliving their entire relationship with this timeline of events.

The following month, Khloe and Lamar welcomed their first baby! Well, sort of. The happy couple adopted an adorable boxer puppy named Bernard Hopkins, B or BHop for short.
Things were all quiet on the Kardashian-Odom front until rumors of drug addiction began swirling. In late August, sources claimed that Lamar had gotten hooked on prescription drugs, as well as cocaine.
Just days after drug abuse rumors hit the World Wide Web, Lamar was pulled over and arrested on suspicion of DUI. While no substances were found on Odom, TMZ’s sources claim Lamar’s behavior and driving were consistent with drugs.
Months pass and neither Khloe nor Lamar address the alleged cheating scandal, drug allegations or rumored divorce. On October 3, sources close to the couple told TMZ that though they had not yet taken the necessary steps, divorce was imminent for the troubled duo. That same day, Khloe was photographed shopping with her youngest sister Kylie Jenner, still sporting her wedding ring.
A few days later, Khloe reportedly booted Lamar from their Tarzana, California mansion. She then allegedly hired someone to come in and do a sweep of the property to ensure that Lamar did not leave any drugs or paraphernalia behind. Those reports came after Kardashian addressed her issues with Lamar on an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
After quite some time out of the spotlight, Lamar Odom resurfaces on Instagram on October 16. Lamar’s barber, Enzo, shared a photo of a much healthier looking Odom after receiving a fresh cut. The caption suggested that Lamar was headed to the L.A. Clippers to talk with team execs about getting his spot on the team back.
Lamar’s schedule was all clear when it came time to attend the Yeezus tour stop in L.A., though. He was seen kickin’ it with the Kardashians at the concert on the night of October 28, though sources told TMZ there was most definitely not a Khlomar reconciliation on the horizon.
On December 1, the Kardashian klan – sans Lamar – gathered to recount their year, give gifts to one another and show off the photo they’d be sending out to friends and family. During the hour and a half special, Khloe touches on her marital issues multiple times.
