Khloe Kardashian Meltdown: ‘Couldn’t Handle It’ Because Of Lamar Odom?
Khloe Kardashian reportedly experienced a mild meltdown at the Staples Center on Sunday.
The 30-year-old reality star was at the Staples Center to celebrate the birthday of her brother-in-law, rapper Kanye West.
As previously reported by the Inquisitr, an exclusive birthday bash was held at the Staples Center to honor the 38-year-old “All Day” rapper.

On the surface, it may have seemed like Khloe Kardashian was enjoying herself at the party. However, Hollywood Life reports that an inside source claims the 30-year-old reality star was actually struggling behind the scenes.
“Khloe did her best to keep it together, but she had to go into the locker room at one point during Kanye’s party. The environment reminded her way too much of Lamar and she couldn’t handle it.”
According to the insider, Khloe Kardashian went into the Staples Center locker room with assistants and friends for about 30 minutes to ensure that neither Kanye West nor her sister Kim Kardashian saw her crying. She was then reportedly able to regain her composure and “pull it together.”
The Staples Center is the home court of the Los Angeles Lakers — the NBA team that employed her now-estranged husband Lamar Odom for seven years of his professional career.

Kim Kardashian and Lamar Odom were married for the last two seasons that he spent wearing a Lakers jersey, so she was able to cheer for and support her husband at many of his home games within the Staples Center during that time.
However, according to the insider’s claims, Khloe and Lamar enjoyed many other memorable moments in the Staples Center, even after his games were over.
“There were times, after Lamar’s games, when he and Khloe would go onto the court when everyone had left the building to play horse or a game of one-on-one. Those were some of the most spontaneous and romantic times they had together, and being there reminded her of that. She couldn’t handle it.”
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian became husband and wife in September 2009 — one month after they first met.
