After Lamar Odom was yanked around over the weekend, being traded from the Lakers to the Hornets to the Mavericks, his wife, Khloe Kardashian, has stood by his side. The Kardashian sister is leaving Hollywood for Texas, all in the name of love:
“Life is not always fair,” Khloe Tweeted. “Sometimes you get a splinter even sliding down a rainbow.”
Awe, come on, Texas ain’t that bad, is it?
Khloe says she’s “excited” about the move to Dallas, and added that “everything happens for a reason.”
I’m not sure what the reason is, but I guess they’ll find out. Khloe certainly isn’t the first celebrity to move away from spotlight-central Los Angeles or NYC for a significant other. Here are five other celebs who relocated for love.
Gwyneth Paltrow: Gwyneth Paltrow is the ultimate groupie. She met Chris Martin backstage at a Coldplay concert, won him over, and got him to put a ring on it. A couple of kids later, the two live in north London, on Chris’ turf. “I am so not moving back to New York. We are all very happy in London – it’s a great place to live and work and raise a family," Paltrow said.
Demi Moore: In 1996, on the heels of a happy marriage, Bruce and Demi moved to Hailey, Idaho, where they weren’t bombarded by paparazzi on a daily basis. Sure, neither of them grew up or was born in Hailey, but they wanted a town where they could be in love and raise a family in peace. After that didn’t work out, and she moved on to Ashton, Demi spent most of her time in Los Angeles. But she still has her residence in Hailey.
Johnny Depp: Johnny Depp likes to pretend he moved to France because of political reasons: "America is dumb, it's like a dumb puppy that has big teeth that can bite and hurt you, aggressive…Investigate it a little, check it out, get this feeling and then get out." Yeah, yeah, we get it Johnny Depp. You’re an intellectual who once sat “cross-legged on the floor” with gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson. But let’s be real, man. You moved to France because of your super hot French girlfriend, Vanessa Paradis.
Kristen Stewart: Kristen moved out of her Los Angeles home to rent a four bedroom property with boyfriend Robert Pattinson in his native London. The $22,500 per month property is complete with a spa, pool, and gazebo.
Madonna: Before she met her now ex-husband Guy Ritchie, Madonna admits she hated London: "I moved here for love. No other reason. I never thought in a million years I'd live in London. In fact I quite disliked the place for a while. This was always a city I'd get in and out of as quickly as possible. Then I met my husband. I realized that if I didn't live here, I wouldn't get to see him very much." True to form, after they divorced, Madonna moved back to NYC. She kept her British accent, however.
