In Recent Years
In late 2012, Simon Cowell invited Khloé to host The X Factor, a popular music competition series.
Also in recent news, Khloé found herself trying to prove that she is indeed Robert Kardashian's biological child, amidst her former stepmother's allegations that Robert claimed Kris said Khloé wasn't his. Rumors circulated that Khloé, whose physical appearance contrasts that of her sisters, was the product of an extramarital affair. A paternity test finally put the rumor to rest while the ordeal was recorded for an upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
In August of 2013, rumors began to develop in regards to Kardashian's relationship with Odom. After reports of infidelity were reported by TMZ, other reports of drug abuse began to surface as well. Not long after, it was stated through various media outlets that Kardashian reported Odom missing. Although Odom's location and whereabouts were revealed after 72 hours by an unnamed source via ESPN, it was also confirmed in the announcement that Odom was getting help from friends for an ongoing drug abuse problem. NBA agent Jeff Schwartz confirmed that Kardashian knew of Odom's whereabouts, telling ESPN, "Lamar is not missing. His wife knows exactly where he is."
A few days after it was confirmed that Odom wasn't missing, he was arrested on August 30, 2013, for suspicion of driving under the influence. Following his arrest, Odom checked into rehab under the persuasion of his Kardashian, but he left after having spent slightly more than 24 hours in the facility. The peculiar series of events has led to reports that the couple is separated. Although neither party has confirmed the rumor of their, Kardashian has been seen releasing cryptic messages on her Instagram and Twitter accounts, which has led some to believe that the rumors may be true.
