Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are giving their marriage another try! As the former NBA player slowly recovers from his reported drug incident, he and Khloe made a mutual decision to call off their divorce.
Khloe Kardashian, 31, and Lamar Odom, 35, have made the decision to stay married to each other and give their marriage a second chance. The couple, who signed the papers to finalize their divorce over the summer, have now asked a judge to dismiss their divorce case.
The reality star’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, went before a judge on the morning of Oct. 21, requesting to withdraw the papers that Khloe and Lamar had signed to end their marriage, TMZ reports. Thankfully the judge obliged with the request and the divorce has been dismissed. Reportedly, Lamar made the decision to call off the divorce from his hospital bed. This move comes two years after Khloe first filed for divorce in Dec. 2013.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star refrained from finalizing the split for a year and a half while she desperately tried to save her marriage to the former NBA player. It wasn’t until Lamar reportedly ambushed Khloe outside of her SoulCycle class on Aug. 12 that she decided to take matters into her own hands and try to expedite the divorce process. Roughly two months after their run in, Lamar was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel and was immediately transported to a medical center where he was fighting for his life. After seeing Lamar close to death, Khloe decided she wanted to do anything and everything to help her estranged husband recover his health.
Khloe Plans On Turning Home Into Rehab Center For Lamar
Khloe is so committed to helping Lamar get better that she’s planning on turning her home into a rehab center with all around the clock care! “While Lamar is doing great and showing all the best possible signs of improvement, Khloe knows the hard work is ahead,” the insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Doctors have told her Lamar’s going to need an extensive amount of rehabilitation and she’s preparing for that by turning her home into a rehabilitation center.”
Days after Lamar woke up from his coma, the 31-year-old released a statement thanking fans for their prayers. She wrote on her website, “The past week has been incredibly difficult. I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!”
