Khloe Kardashian files for divorce from husband Lamar Odom

The news of the split comes hot on the heels of the speculation that Odom’s recent substance-abuse issues are to blame for the strain on the couple’s marriage.


Lamar Odom pleads no contest to DUI, gets probation

Former NBA player Lamar Odom, husband of Khloé Kardashian, pleaded no contest Monday to a drunken driving charge and accepted a sentence of three years’ probation and three months of alcohol abuse treatment.

In a deal with prosecutors, Odom entered the plea to one misdemeanor count of driving under the influence and was also ordered to pay $1,814 in fines and penalties, Los Angeles city attorney’s spokesman Frank Mateljan said. Odom had faced a maximum sentence of six months in jail.

The status of his suspended driver’s license will be determined at a separate hearing in front of the Department of Motor Vehicles.

Odom’s attorney, Richard Hutton, appeared in court to enter the plea for him. A phone message left with Hutton was not immediately returned.

The 34-year-old power forward and husband of reality TV star Khloé Kardashian is currently out of the NBA, going unsigned as a free-agent after averaging a career-low 4 points and 5.9 rebounds last season with the Los Angeles Clippers.

Lamar Odom charged with DUI

Basketball star Lamar Odom has been charged with a misdemeanor count of driving under the influence, nearly two weeks after his Mercedes-Benz was pulled over on a Southern California freeway.

The Los Angeles city attorney’s office said Friday that the charges stem from Odom’s Aug. 30 arrest in the San Fernando Valley. The husband of reality TV star Khloé Kardashian was taken into custody after a sobriety test.

The California Highway Patrol said Odom’s car was observed traveling in a “serpentine manner.” The 33-year-old Odom could face six months in jail and a $1,000 fine if convicted.

A call to Odom’s agent for comment was not immediately returned.

After spending the 2012 season with the Dallas Mavericks, Odom returned to the Clippers last year. He is now a free agent.
