Lamar Odom is reportedly worried about coming across as a “schmuck” in Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
The sportsman is in the midst of a divorce from his wife of four years, Khloé Kardashian, who cited “irreconcilable differences” as the cause of the split.
Their marriage began to crumble last year after reports emerged he cheated on her and abused drugs, including crack cocaine.
Now Khloé has referred to the troubles in her family’s reality show, Lamar is said to be wary of how he will be depicted in upcoming season nine.
“The last thing Lamar needs in his life is to be portrayed as a schmuck. Khloé has assured him that it won’t be bad, but how can it not be?” a source told RadarOnline.
“The end of the marriage is going to be Khloé’s main storyline next season and Lamar is afraid that his drug use and cheating will be addressed on the show. At the same time, he is trying to make a career comeback and he thinks this is going to hinder and hurt those efforts. He feels he’s going to be used to get ratings for the Kardashians.”
It was recently reported the estranged couple are still in regular contact. However, this is allegedly down to the 29-year-old star checking her former spouse is getting himself back on track.
“She is making sure he is taking care of responsibilities with his DUI and meeting with his trainer. It’s definitely a mother-son type of relationship. There will always be a lot of love there between the two, but Khloé has definitely moved on,” an insider explained.
“There are zero plans for the former couple to reconcile and both are very amicable right now, which is a good sign for the divorce. It should be quick, with no drama.”
Khloé has been open about her plans to turn her life around this year. In an interview conducted at the end of December she insisted she is feeling more positive.
“I need a good fresh start. I’m excited for this year to be over with. I don’t regret anything about my life,” she told British magazine Cosmopolitan.
