After stalling the legal dissolve of her marriage to Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian finally threw in the towel when she was reminded of her ex’s problems with substance abuse.
Khloe Kardashian, 31, was this close to giving Lamar Odom, 35, one more chance. In 2014, she reconsidered getting back together with the former NBA star, but quickly changed her mind when she came face to face with the troubling (and super sad) events of 2015. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY how the deaths of Lam-Lam’s two best buds (and his affinity for drugs and alcohol) contributed to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star calling it quits for good.
“[Finalizing the divorce] has reminded her of the days when Lamar faced his demons. The days where she was worried sick about him. The days when he cheated on her,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “The days she didn’t know where he was and feared he wasn’t alive. She doesn’t want to go through that pain and agony again. She doesn’t want to take that kind of chance on Lamar again.”
Okay, yeah — obvi, no one would ever want to relive that nightmare. While Khloe did everything in her power to console Lamar after his good pals Jamie Sangouthai and Bobby Heyward passed away within days of each other, it seemed he needed a lot more than a kiss and a hug to get over the grief. Unfortunately, he coped by drinking excessively and turning back to drugs. A painful recall for KoKo as to why she left him in the first place.
“The divorce is heartbreaking for both Khloe and Lamar because it’s the final straw in their marriage,” our insider explains. “Khloe wanted this to work — she really, really did but the death of Jamie and Bobby really pushed Khloe over the edge.”
The former couple signed legal documents that will make the split a done deal once and for all, according to court papers obtained by TMZ. At one point, a judge threatened to close out the case because so much time had passed without activity in the exes’ file. And now it’s all in the past, giving the blonde beauty time to dry her eyes and move on with her life!
