It took more than a year and half for Khloe Kardashian to finalize her divorce from Lamar Odom. But Khloe was inspired to finally sign the papers while helping Kourtney through her messy split with Scott Disick, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Khloe Kardashian, 31, has been right by Kourtney Kardashian’s side through her shocking breakup with Scott Disick, 31. The soon-to-be Kocktails With Khloe host has been doing her best to support her older sister and according to our source, the heartbreaking ordeal influenced her decision to finally make her split with Lamar Odom, 35, official.
After finalizing her divorce on July 17, Khloe thanked her fans for their support on her “emotional day”. But instead of thinking about her own problems, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the KUWTK star has been all about her family. “Khloe is sad, but she’s feeling strong. Right now, her main focus is being there for Kourtney and the kids. Helping Kourtney through this breakup is giving her a lot of strength — she’s in mamma bear mode. It’s been a big factor in her finally signing the divorce papers.”
“She’s been giving Kourtney all this advice about how she needs to be tough with Scott and she realized she needed to take some of her own advice. Signing the paperwork was not easy, but she realized she had to do it.” As difficult as it was for Khloe to end things for good, it seems pretty clear that she’s made the right decision.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom: She Tried Everything To Save Marriage
It took so long for Khloe to file her divorce papers, it was starting to seem like she might never give up on Lamar. And it turns out, she was hoping she wouldn’t have to. A new report claims that she stalled her divorce for over a year because she was trying to work things out with her ex-husband. According to TMZ, she tried couples therapy, but Lamar skipped out on most of the sessions. Not only did he bail on the therapy, he also gave her a bunch of “lame excuses” and one time she found out he’d skipped a session for a pool party. Ouch — no wonder she decided it was time to get tough and end things once and for all.
