Khloe Kardashian Odom and her NBA pro husband, Lamar Odom, have definitely had a rather tricky and trying past few months. While sister Kim Kardashian has been in the spotlight for her divorce from Kris Humphries and her new current fling with Kanye West, Khloe and Lamar have been likewise battling rumors of marital discord, that pesky pregnancy talk and pressure, not to mention the issues surrounding Odom's basketball career and his father's health problems. So is he cracking under the pressure, outside what is seen on their dramatic and probably scripted reality TV show? One body language expert thinks he might just be.
After analyzing a photo of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom exiting the Spice Market restaurant in New York City last weekend, expert Lillian Glass has a few strong declarations she's putting out there, and they all point to the assumption that this basketball star is feeling the blues.
"Lamar appears to be very vulnerable and literally leaning on Khloe who is 'carrying him' at least as far as his public image goes now that he is no longer with a team," she said, as Hollywood Life reports. "She is his literal shoulder to lean on. She is the strong one, who is now holding him up."
In the picture in question, Odom does seem like he could be a bit troubled and depressed, just judging by the expression on his face, not his body language. That said, the photo could have just caught him at a bad time. Plus, perhaps he was just tired after hitting the gym! Recent reports have also alluded to the fact that he may be filming Keeping up with the Kardashians, and that might make anyone a bit weary trying to keep up with the familyÂ—no pun intendedÂ—and with even more cameras than usual in his face. He's a basketball star not a reality star, although he does seem to handle the shows better than Kim Kardashian's ex, NBA player Kris Humphries.
As well, rather than his body language pointing to a rather defeatist, depressed attitude, it could be likened to something more romantic. The towering Lamar Odom has to kind of lean down to sweetly put his arm around Khloe Kardashian anyway. She may be tall, but she's not that tall!
