Khloe, you confessed on ‘KUWTK’ that you weren’t ready to remove the LO (Lamar Odom) tattoo on your hand. While you gave a lame excuse for sticking with the letters, we understand the real reason it’s still there — it’s hard to stop loving your estranged husband.
Khloe Kardashian, it’s been almost five years since you said your wedding vows with Lamar Odom on Sept. 27, 2009. You and Lamar, then a star player on the LA Lakers basketball team, tied the knot after a whirlwind, four-week romance.
Khloe Kardashian: We Understand Why You Still Love Lamar Odom
People said it wouldn’t last and they were right — it didn’t. But it didn’t end for the reasons they expected.
Many of your marriage critics believed that the wedding was just a Kardashian publicity stunt, or that you were simply marrying Lamar for money. None of that was the case. You and Lamar proved that. You truly were deeply and madly in love and you, Khloe, were deeply committed to your marriage.
When times got really tough and Lamar fell into an alleged addiction, you remained as devoted to your marriage and to helping him as any wife possibly could.
It was only after two years of heartrendering attempts to get him help had failed, that you threw in the towel, realizing that you had to save yourself. But just because you finally gathered the strength to leave Lamar, doesn’t mean that you stopped loving him. Neither did he stop loving you.
Khloe Kardashan: Remove Your Lamar Odom Tattoo When You’re Ready
Khloe, it’s completely normal to still love someone unconditionally, even if you can no longer live with them, or if you don’t agree with the destructive decisions they’ve made. That’s why it’s totally understandable that you’re not ready to remove your LO tattoo.
In time, your feelings for Lamar will not be as strong as they are today. In time, you’ll fall deeply in love with French or another man. In time, it will feel right to remove the LO from your hand, or to transform it into another word.
But don’t feel pressured. And there’s no need to make any more lame excuses, like how you just “like tattoos on my hands.”
So remove it when you’re ready — or don’t. But in any case, it’s OK to still have feelings of love for Lamar. You cared for him truly and dearly, and there’s no need to be ashamed of that.
Do you agree, HollywoodLifers? Is it OK for Khloe to still love Lamar? Let me know.
