Khloe Kardashian's husband Lamar Odom has been staying in an L.A hotel after a massive row caused the TV star to kick her NBA player partner out, it has emerged. Last Wednesday (21st Aug), things got so bad between the pair that the Kardashian sister booted out her husband of four years.

Khloe reportedly tried to stage and intervention to persuade Lamar to go back to rehab to tackle his destructive crack cocaine problems. After much pestering, the basketball star entered rehab last year but the experience was almost pointless when he chose to leave after just three weeks. Now, in the down-time when the basketball season has ended, Lamar is said to be back on crack.

With Khloe and Odom's face splattered all over the gossip media and swirling rumours of a divorce, the 29 year-old has taken to Twitter to show how much the situation is winding her up. "Really hard to sit here and listen to people talk shit about my family! Fuck you and shame on you! I'm too protective for this shit!" she tweeted as the internet began to fill with reports about her marriage not long after Lamar was pictured collecting suitcases from their Calabasas home.

She followed her foul-mouthed post with a picture of herself at roughly 4 years-old looking grumpy on the beach. Her fans have continually sent her messages of support but probably all Khloe wants is for her husband to be safe, whether they end up staying together or not.

Initially, it seemed as though Khloe didn't know where Lamar was and there were reports that the sports star was unreachable. However now Lamar's agent has stated that Odom was never missing and Khloe knew where he was the whole time. "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is," Jeff Schwartz told ESPN, as reported by Sky News.

The basketball player has been located in an L.A hotel with friends who are also trying to get him to seek help for his drug addiction. Khloe and Lamar have "effectively" separated, says TMZ, as the 33 year-old has child custody battles from a previous relationship to contend with as well as the pressures of being a free agent in the competitive world of sport.
