Khloe Kardashian can't make up her mind over Lamar Odom's Turkey offer

   Mar 13, 2:06 pm

London, Mar 13 (ANI): Lamar Odom was getting so bored during the NBA lockout that he resorted to playing Hangman and baking, so that when he received an offer to play basketball in Turkey, his wife Khloe Kardashian was very happy and supportive.

But after some serious criticism from her family members, the 27-year-old reality star quickly changed her tune.

Though she admits that she'd miss her family immensely if she and Odom were to move overseas, she notes: "Finding out that Turkey is the country is so much worse to me because of my family history."

"The Armenian Genocide is such a controversial and very sensitive issue because the Turkish and Armenian people disagree about the facts of what actually happened," the Daily Mail quoted her as saying.

She quickly adds that she's taken a progressive stance on the struggles between both countries.

"I know how strongly Armenians feel about the Genocide, and how it's never been recognised. At the same time, I do not hold today's generation of people accountable," she said.

While discussing about the possibility with younger brother Rob, he expresses his doubts.

"Imagine what it's going to be like," he urges.

Offscreen, he elaborates on his opinion, saying: "It would just be a very uncomfortable situation for our family."

"I feel like my dad would tell me to support my husband," Khloe said offscreen.

She and Rob call their uncle, who ultimately has this piece of advice: I would probably stay away from it.'

While chatting with older sister Kim during a ladies trip to Las Vegas, her sister adds more fuel to Khloe's worried fire.

"Just be careful. I don't think you understand," Kim said.

"When I did the cover of Cosmo International, Turkey picked it up and I got a lot of backlash for it .

"Obviously, you'd be there to support your husband. You need to make a choice here," she said.

Finally, a hesitant Khloe broaches the subject with her husband while taking a windy, cold winter walk.

"I've been having a lot of thoughts about Turkey. I mean, because I'm Armenian," Khloe said.

Lamar is confused. "What does that mean?"

"You know about the Genocide. I didn't want to bother you with this and stress you out more. I know how much you've missed playing," she said.

It looks like Lamar might love Khloe more than he loves basketball though, because the two have a truly tender and heartfelt moment.

"You know, these decisions, we'll make them together, as a team. One-two punch. Just be honest with me, all the time," he said.

"That's what I was trying to do, but it's hard!" Khloe said.

She's clearly pleased that her husband isn't expecting her to move to Turkey, and that he values their relationship enough to make decisions as 'a team'.

The couple also learns that the lockout is finally over. (ANI)
