We knew this day would come. A year and 7 months after Khloe filed for divorce from Lamar on Dec. 13, 2013, the couple are officially parting ways. This is so sad!
Khloe Kardashian, 31, is officially a single woman again. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and former NBA player Lamar Odom, 35, who were married for four years, took the last step toward finalizing their divorce on July 17.
Both Khloe and Lamar finally signed legal documents that will make the split official, according to court documents obtained by TMZ. The decision to finally get moving on this has obviously been a long time coming, as Khloe filed for divorce in Dec. 2013. But, at one point, a judge even threatened to dismiss the case because so much time had passed without activity in the exes’ file.
What started out as a whirlwind love affair and strong, passionate marriage took a turn for the tumultuous when Lamar succumbed to his alleged drug and alcohol issues in the summer of 2013. Poor Khloe did everything in her power to help save the man she loved — and still loves to this day — but in the end she had to do what was best for her.
After having second thoughts about divorcing Lamar as recently as Dec. 2014, Khloe finally seems ready to move forward with her life. As sad as this is, we know she will one day find the true love and happiness she deserves.
Since the 2013 split, Lamar has mostly been M.I.A., but Khloe has remained in the spotlight more than ever. Just months after filing for divorce, she began dating French Montana, although, the relationship eventually fizzled out. This summer, the reality star has been linked to NBA player James Harden, 25, although a July 20 report claims he cheated on her with model Rochelle Reif, 23..
Meanwhile, things have been pretty difficult for Lamar over the last several weeks — his best friend Jamie Sangouthai, 37, who appeared on Khloe & Lamar, tragically died on June 14, and another pal, Bobby Heyward, suffered a similar fate just one week later. Khloe stood by her ex’s side throughout the sad time.
