Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom Call Off Divorce
The Debrief: Because who doesn't love a happy ending?
A lot can happen in a week. It was only last Wednesday that Lamar Odom – former NBA player and Khloe Kardashian’s husband – was found ‘unresponsive’ in a brothel in Nevada with cocaine and opiates in his system. Fast forward a week and he’s en route to recovery AND staying married to Khloe.
Yup, in the wake of this little miracle, they’ve decided to call off their divorce and give marriage a second try.
Upon receiving the news last week, Khloe reportedly immediately rushed to Lamar’s bedside and has been a constant presence ever since, making medical decisions for him. Now, reports say that her lawyer Laura Wasser went to the courts yesterday to ask the judge to withdraw the divorce papers, which had been signed by both Khloe and Lamar in July, but not yet processed by the court.
The judge granted the request and the divorce is now dead, although it can be refiled at a later date.
The document doesn’t state a reason for the change, but it does show that Lamar signed off on dismissing the divorce on Tuesday, just days after he embarked on his recovery. A source told CNN: ‘This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloe, and the most sensible thing to do at such a time is not make any big moves and put everything on hold. So that’s what she is doing.’
While the rest of the Kardahians were living it up for Kim’s 35th birthday party last night (a surprise orchestrated by hubby Kanye West in which all the guests were asked to come dressed in their favourite ‘pregnant Kim’ looks), Khloe stayed by Lamar’s side amidst reports that the basketball player still isn’t doing too well.
‘He can’t stand up by himself. She is still very worried about him and uncomfortable with leaving him,’ an insider said.
Taking an uncustomary (and completely understandable!) break from social media, Khloe this week broke her silence in a message posted on her app and website. ‘The past week has been incredibly difficult. I’m so thankful for family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work.’
There are a whole bunch of rumours flying around about what’s going to happen next, including one that says Khloe is turning her house into a rehab center where she’ll be helping nurse Lamar back to health. One thing’s for sure, there’s a whooole lot of love here.
