Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom To Divorce

Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce from former NBA basketball player Lamar Odom after four years of marriage.

The 29-year-old reality television star cited irreconcilable differences in documents filed on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The couple's relationship has been under strain in recent months after Odom, an NBA free agent who does not belong to any team, displayed increasingly erratic behaviour in public.

In August, the basketball player, 34, was arrested on suspicion of drink driving.

Neither Kardashian nor Odom, who formerly played for the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks, has commented publicly on the status of their marriage.

The couple married in September 2009 after a whirlwind romance and the ceremony featured on the family's show, Keeping Up With The Kardashians.

The pair, who had no children together, also had their own spin-off series.

The divorce filing asks that the wife's formal name be restored to Khloe Kardashian from Khloe Kardashian Odom.

Kardashian is a younger sister of the better-known TV celebrity Kim Kardashian, who is engaged to rapper Kanye West.
