KHLOE & LAMAR

KHLOE & LAMAR

Khloé Kardashian married NBA player Lamar Odom Sept. 27, 2009, in L.A. after only a one-month courtship. "It may seem like it's a quickie wedding to everyone else, but Khloé knows what she wants," a source told PEOPLE. "She and Lamar started talking about getting married really soon after they met."

Relationship status: It's complicated
It's becoming increasingly tricky to keep up with Khloé and Lamar Odom's ups and downs, which came under scrutiny in August (on the heels of cheating rumors) when sources claimed the basketball star's drug abuse is hurting their four-year marriage. But the reality star's mixed signals – she removed the Odom from her Twitter and Instagram profiles but kept her wedding ring on – are perhaps best summarized by one of her many recent Tweets nodding to the couple's woes: "Not all love can be explained," she wrote Tuesday. "The deepest love is also the hardest to express." Later that day, she reunited with her husband at their Tarzana, Calif., home, after her mom announced her separation from Bruce.

SUMMER DRAMA

SUMMER DRAMA

From cheating rumors to drug abuse, the duo encounters the biggest obstacle in their four-year marriage. In August, sources reveal the basketball star's substance problems have created a major divide between the couple. "It's a really hard time for Khloé," the source told PEOPLE. "She's kept this secret for almost two years trying to save Lamar and their marriage." Following his arrest for a DUI, Odom checks himself into a rehabilitation center. "He realized he needs help," a second source said to PEOPLE. One day later, however, he checks out.

Things get even rockier for the pair in 2013: In addition to being rarely seen together at events (they were last spotted at Kim's June 2 baby shower), a scathing ESPN investigation claims their charity organization Cathy's Kids – founded in 2004 after Lamar's mother passed away from cancer – "promises money for cancer research [but] has not given a dime in grant money to any cancer entity in its eight-year history." In a statement on her blog, Khloé defended their foundation, writing: "It is unfortunate that my husband has been the target of an attack on athletes’ charities, although he has personally contributed approximately $2.2 million to his foundation, Cathy’s Kids, to fulfill its charitable purposes that include helping underprivileged inner-city youth."

While Lamar strives to find a rhythm with the L.A. Clippers, 2012 also finishes on a sad note for Khloé, who gives up her cohosting duties on The X Factor, blaming "a busy schedule" for her departure. "I've never hosted anything in my life," she said. "So, to go from nothing to being thrown into live TV, it was really hard," she revealed on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, adding there's "no bad blood" between her and the singing competition's head honcho, Simon Cowell.

The Odoms look to start a family of their own but encounter difficulties, sparking rumors of fertility issues, which Khloé has vehemently denied. "It's so hard. I never knew about ovulation and the limited amount of time you have to get pregnant. I never knew about that. No one ever taught me that," she confessed to Hoda Kotb during a 2011 hosting gig on the Today show.

Walking down the aisle in a Vera Wang gown, the reality starlet ties the knot with Odom in front of family and friends on Sept. 27, 2009, in Beverly Hills, Calif. The lavish ceremony was featured during a record-breaking episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and boasted a celeb-studded guest list – Ryan Seacrest, Kelly Osbourne, Chelsea Handler and Odom's Laker teammate Kobe Bryant. "Khloé and Lamar's wedding was one of the most magical nights of my life," sister Kourtney said of the extravagant affair. It's the first marriage for the E! star and her NBA player hubby, who has two children (Destiny, 13, and Lamar Jr., 10) with ex-girlfriend Liza Morales. In 2006 Morales and Odom sadly lost their third child, Jayden, to Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
