Khloe Kardashian unlucky in love, from Lamar Odom to Tristan Thompson: Why smart women choose ‘bad boys’


Khloe Kardashian has a love timeline that reads like a romance novel with an unhappy ending. Why do smart women like the KUWTK star choose bad boys?

Khloe Kardashian just can’t seem to win when it comes to love.

First the Keeping Up With The Kardashians (KUWTK) star sought to have a happy marriage with Lamar Odom…but their life quickly went from bad (cheating and addiction rumors) to intolerable (Kardashian called it quits and filed for divorce).

Then Kardashian seemed to have found everything she wanted with Tristan Thompson, from love to a baby. But amid welcoming her long-desired first child, Khloe was heart-broken to hear rumors that he had cheated on her. Now, thanks to Jordyn Woods, Kardashian has called it quits with her baby daddy as well.

Why do smart women like Khloe Kardashian fall in love with bad boys?

Khloe isn’t the only wise woman to have fallen for a bad boy.

But Kardashian is one of the few celebrity women to have gone through not one but two public scandals about their love lives.

So what went wrong with Lamar Odom? Kardashian took it on herself to try to save him from his substance abuse issues, according to E News’ sources.

When he was arrested for a DUI, Lamar entered rehab but left after just a day.

Combined with all the rumors that he had cheated on Khloe, Kardashian was left with the decision that she was “not going to stay with someone who refuses to get help,” said one of the insiders.

Khloe Kardashian suffered through cheating scandals in two relationships: Why?

In addition to suffering through the cheating rumors surrounding Lamar, Khloe stuck by Tristan through multiple accusations of infidelity. Only the recent drama connected with Kylie Jenner’s best friend Jordyn Woods convinced Kardashian to end it for good.

Why would a smart woman like Khloe stay with not just one but two men who cheated on her, leaving them only after being hurt multiple times?

A study reported by Psychology Today showed that women may be attracted to “bad boys,” defined as those who show confidence and risk-taking.

Those qualities of confidence and risk-taking are key to success for athletes such as Lamar and Tristan. But unfortunately, they also are often found in men who cheat. Thompson showed the ultimate sense of risk-taking when he canoodled with Kylie Jenner’s best friend at a party.

Now “cool mom” Khloe Kardashian has decided that being single is the best choice at this time in her life.
