Khloe Kardashian and husband Lamar Odom may be adding real life drama to their often contrived reality shows after a seemingly credible report surfaced of tryst between Odom and a fetching Los Angeles lawyer by the name of Polina Polonsky.
The report contained in the not-always-reliable tabloid Star magazine claims the affair took place over the summer during a rough patch in Khloe and Lamar’s marriage.
Polonsky claims she met Odom at the Roosevelt Hotel in Los Angeles where the pro basketballer was staying after he’d moved out on Khloe during one of their marital spats. To double check her claims Star required Polonsky to take a lie detector test, which she passed.
“I was under the impression that he had left Khloe, and that’s why he was living at the Roosevelt. He acted completely available and we definitely had a mutual attraction,” she told the magazine.
Polonsky said the affair began on June 2 and lasted eight weeks. They me at the hotel and her apartment. She said Khloe and momager Kris Jenner got wind of the affair and tried to catch Lamar in the act by showing up unannounced at his hotel room door.
Polonsky wasn’t there, and Lamar shifted their dalliances to her apartment starting on June 22, she said. Khloe and Kris eventually showed up at her door three days later, but Lamar, who was there, refused to let them in, she says. The affair finally ended July 8.
Khloe’s marriage has been portrayed as rocky on the family’s reality show “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” starting with strife over Khloe’s inability to have children. But every time the marriage was supposedly heading for a divorce, the couple miraculously patched things up.
Even now, sources claim Khloe and Lamar are 100 percent in love. To her credit, she’s the only of three sisters who is married. But this time, Khloe may have had to swallow her pride to keep things together.
