Khloe Kardashian, you should be called St. Khloe — at least by Lamar Odom and his family. But after sacrificing so much to save his life, it is time for you to now focus on making your own dreams happen.
Khloe Kardashian, good for you for finally filing for divorce again from Lamar Odom on May 26. You deserve the full opportunity to move on with your life after putting absolutely everything on hold when Lamar almost died after nearly overdosing at the Love Ranch outside of Las Vegas on Oct. 13, 2015. Lamar has to remain forever grateful to you for dropping absolutely everything and racing to the intensive care unit of his Las Vegas hospital, after you heard that he had overdosed and then suffered twelve strokes.
Lamar, Khloe stayed by your side at the hospital for a month, barely sleeping, showering or changing her clothes, while you hovered between life and death. She flew in your children, Destiny and Lamar Odom Jr., and your father Joe, to be by your bedside. She took over your care, consulted with your doctors, called specialists to get second, third and fourth opinions, and made sure that you got the very best treatment possible.
Then on Oct. 21, she withdrew her divorce petition so she could continue to legally remain your wife and ensure that she could make necessary health care decisions, while you could not. Against high odds, you survived — no doubt as a result of exceptional care and Khloe’s love. Khloe literally gave you the gift of life. Now, Lamar, you need to give her the same gift and let her move on with love.
Khloe clearly has concluded that she has done all that she can for you. You are healthy again but you have not stayed on the wagon. You’ve been photographed and videotaped in bars drinking again. That can’t have made her happy. And it can’t have given her confidence that she could ever have a secure romantic future with you again. How could she possibly recommit if she didn’t have total trust that you wouldn’t end up in a terrible, life-threatening situation again — or even that you wouldn’t relapse into heavy drinking and drug use?
As she has said on Instagram, “Not everyone can be fixed — or even wants to be fixed. People need to heal themselves on their own timeline, and the sad thing is, sometimes we do have to ‘cut ourselves’ on someone else to see that. Just because someone is broken doesn’t mean it’s our responsibility to glue them back together.” So true Khloe. You can only do so much and you more than tried to fix Lamar. You may have ended up fixing him physically, but mentally, there was no more to do. He has to do it for himself now.
We hear that you want to have children, and you can’t do that until you find another soulmate. “Khloe sat Lamar down recently and explained [that] she wanted a family and wouldn’t even start the process of looking until she was single again,” an insider told TMZ. Lamar understood how you felt, Khloe, but he hasn’t given up on trying to change your mind about ending the marriage, an insider told Hollywoodlife.com exclusively. “He’s got six months [until the divorce is final] to win her back and that’s exactly what he’s planning to do,” reveals the insider. “He’s really going to work hard on himself…and clean up his act majorly so she can see him in a better light.” In his mind, Khloe, he loves you and you’ll always be his wife.
That’s great, but Khloe, you’re wise not to wait another second to begin a new life. You deserve to have a mate that you can depend on and you deserve to have your own children. You’re a wonderful auntie to Kim and Kourtney‘s kids. You’ll be a fantastic mom. So congrats, Khloe, on taking that big, brave step and welcome to the rest of your life.
