KHLOE KARDASHIAN has apparently booted LAMAR ODOM out of the house until he completes rehab. This comes after Odom was busted for DUI early Friday morning and she found out about it online. One source said...they're still at an impasse and the prospects of saving their marriage are "grim." It's also been revealed that about a week before his DUI bust, Odom was involved in a three-car pileup ala Kylie Jenner. Odom apparently caused the accident on an L.A. freeway, although damage to the cars was minor.

Police believe Odom was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol after they spotted him driving in a "serpentine manner."
