Khloe Kardashian files for divorce from Lamar Odom

Reality television star cited irreconcilable differences in court documents

Reality television personality Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce from her husband of four years, NBA basketball player Lamar Odom, following months of reports the couple's relationship was becoming increasingly turbulent.

Kardashian, 29, cited irreconcilable differences in seeking to end her marriage in court documents on Friday in Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The filing comes days after Odom pleaded no contest on Monday to a misdemeanor drunken driving charge.

The 34-year-old athlete was arrested last August after his Mercedes-Benz SUV was seen weaving on an LA freeway.

Neither Kardashian or Odom, who do not have children together, have commented publicly on their marriage status.

Kardashian, 29, is best known for starring with her sisters Kim and Kourtney, and her mother, Kris Jenner, in the long-running reality TV series Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

She also runs an upscale clothing store with her sisters and was featured in the short-lived reality series with Odom, called Khloe & Lamar.

Basketball forward Odom has played with the Los Angeles Lakers and Dallas Mavericks.

The two were married in 2009 in a large ceremony filmed for the E! network, following a whirlwind engagement.

Her older sister Kim recently announced her engagement to rapper Kanye West.
