After Khloe Kardashian shocked fans with her decision to call off her divorce to Lamar Odom, her reasoning for doing so hasn’t entirely been determined. While promoting her book on Nov. 9, though, she did clarify that it wasn’t for intimate reasons!
As Khloe Kardashian, 31, has helped Lamar Odom, 36, through his medical crisis since he was hospitalized on Oct. 13, she made it clear that she still has lots of love for him. This led to her calling off her divorce to Lamar on Oct. 21, which was immediately speculated as the estranged couple had filed for divorce just a few months earlier. Did she miss being intimate with Lamar? Khloe wants to declare that was definitely not the driving force for calling things off!
“I’m still married for a multitude reasons, but intimacy is not one of them,” Khloe told NBC News at her book signing in Hollywood on Nov. 9. Although Khloe still didn’t give any specific reasons for why she did decide to call off their divorce, evidently it had nothing to do with getting intimate with him again — no matter how affectionate she has been to him while he has been in the hospital!
While Khloe insists that intimacy isn’t why she wanted to remain married to Lamar, a source mentioned to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that Khloe and Lamar were interlocking hands in the hospital. Considering that’s about as intimate as they could get while Lamar recovered, it sounds like that’s as intimate as they’ll be getting despite their marital status!
Plus, Khloe mentioned to NBC that Lamar is aware she is still dating NBA star James Harden, so clearly her motive for remaining married to Lamar really isn’t intimacy. Khloe also clarified in an interview with People that she pulled back on the divorce because “there is no rush for it,” and with Lamar’s current situation, it’s “smarter to put it on hold.”
Khloe said Lamar is improving day by day, as he has been taken off dialysis and is reportedly now able to speak in full sentences and eat on his own. According to reports, Lamar is telling Khloe “I love you” when he has enough energy to say it as his wife has been a major reason for his miraculous recovery. Khloe may not be looking to get intimate with Lamar, but she has certainly been an amazing source of love to her husband through all of this!
