Khloe & Lamar is just one of the many hit E! shows focusing on the Kardashian family, focusing on the marriage between Khloe Kardashian Odom and NBA basketball player Lamar Odom. However, according to a report, the series might end so Lamar can focus on his struggling career.
TMZ reported Monday that the couple will end the series. Sources for the site say that Lamar wants to make a comeback in the NBA and can only do that if he focuses on that goal without cameras following him. The former Dallas Mavericks player is going to live in Los Angeles full time to work with trainers.
Sources added that the couple will still make occasional appearances on Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The news comes less than a month after Lamar was cut by the Mavericks, notes Fox Sports. On April 9, the team announced that Lamar would be put on the inactive list. At the end of the season, the team will be able to trade the former Lakers star. He set career lows throughout the 2011-2012 season, playing in just 50 games.
Despite his reality star status, his decision to quit the show should be a sign to teams that he is ready to focus on basketball. “He’s a great athlete...He should stick with the NBA and he should forget about reality TV and focus on what he has a real talent for and what’s paying the bills,” CBS Sports host Lindsay McCormick told Hollywood Life.
