Khloe Kardashian is not "made of steel" but she's "pretty damn close to it though." The reality star tweeted following her husband's DUI arrest and rumours of their marital strife. It seems Kardashian is telling the world she can handle whatever comes next regarding her marriage.
Khloe Kardashian tweeted in the wake of her husband's arrest on Friday 30th August. Lamar Odom's arrest for DUI has coincided with press coverage of their, alleged, marital difficulties and Odom's apparent substance abuse problem. Kardashian implied she is remaining strong despite the overwhelming media coverage of her relationship difficulties and her husband's legal problems.
One of the last times the couple were photographed together in June, leaving Kim Kardashian's baby shower.
Kardashian tweeted yesterday, Sunday 1st September, writing "As much as I wish I were made of steel. I'm not." Later posting another comment, attempting to make light of her previous text, the 29-year-old reality star added "I'm pretty damn close to it though".

Rumours speculating that Kardashian and Odom's relationship is under stress have been fuelled by allegations of Odom's infidelity and the couple appearing, separately, without their wedding rings. However, sources close to the couple speaking to People and Us Weekly claim the couple are remaining together and that their family is fully supporting Odom as he battles an alleged cocaine addiction.

The couple are believed to be residing in their Los Angeles home as they were spotted arriving separately on Friday. They have not been photographed together for a number of weeks however other sources claim, despite appearances, Kardashian is focussed on "getting Lamar better" (according to E!).
The couple in happier times, photographed together last year.
