The LA Lakers and Lamar Odom's are up 2-1 in the NBA finals. Yes, the Lakers are on a hot-hot streak, and it looks like a smooth ride for Lamar and team from here on out. It's off the court, however, that Lamar is perhaps hitting a bump in the road.

Sources close to the couple suggest that Lamar and his celebutante wifey, Khloe Kardashian are heading for splitsville USA. Rumors are swirling that the baller has been "playin' ball" in numerous cities, on and off the court.

The two stars were married last September in a whirl-wind marriage, chronicled by Ms Kardashian's reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians .

What appeared to many to be simply a publicity stunt to promote the show, had even the gossipy skeptics fascinated.

Glam Girls caught up with the two at the Kitson launch for Lamar's clothing line Rich Soil , just weeks after their wedding. When we spoke to the famous twosome, they couldn't have appeared more in love. Lamar told us that Khloe cooks him dinner every night, and he's never been "this happy." So how and what is changing his fancy tone?

Infidelity? Perhaps. Sources close to the couple tell Glam Girls that he's been seeing other women, one of which, his ex-girlfriend, and mother of his children, Liza Morales. Also, we've been told that Khloe, who may be concealing her pregnancy, was in a mad-dash to get preggers in hopes of salvaging their marriage.

Kardashian, who has been courtside cheering along her husband throughout the playoffs, appears to be keeping close to her man. Might this all be a publicity stunt to promote the new season of her show, set to debut on Sunday? According to our sources, it isn't so.

What we can tell you for sure... The Celtics fans are doing everything they can to exploit the situation. Boston fans are chanting the the reality-star to be "the ugly sister."

Khloe, who has spent the last few months in Miami filming her spin-off reality show, Khloe and Kourtney Take Miami , wasn't physically in Beantown, however, she was seen in Boston Tuesday night, thousands of times... Tauntr.com passed out 5,000 Khloe masks to fans to taunt the basketball star. Unfazed by the masks, or the Boston fans remarks, Lamar posted his best stats thus far in the series.

We truly hope for the sake of what appears to be a very happy couple, that these rumors, are just that. We'll say one thing, we're a fan of Lamar, on the hardwood and in his marriage. We definitely remain in the couple's cheering section...
