Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are still husband and wife, and they filed the docs to prove it! It’s official: Khloe and Lamar are giving marriage a second chance, submitting the papers to cancel their divorce. How exciting!
Khloe Kardashian‘s lawyer, Laura Wasser, went before a judge on October 21 and asked, on the behalf of her client and Lamar Odom, that their divorce papers be withdrawn from court. Translation: the divorce is off! Khloe and Lamar are still married, everyone!
Khloe and Lamar’s divorce dissolution documents were obtained by TMZ (click here to read them!), and apparently Khloe’s lawyer showed up at the Los Angeles-based judge’s chambers just in the nick of time. Their divorce agreement was sitting in a pile of documents waiting to be filed and signed by the judge! Whew, that was a close one!
Judge B. Scott Silverman, according to the documents, had the honor of calling the whole thing off. It was signed by Lamar, and Khloe’s lawyer on her behalf. The request for divorce was dismissed “without prejudice,” and went into effect as of October 21. Congrats, Khloe and Lamar!
Love has prevailed! Khloe and Lamar were able to stop the proceedings before their marriage was dissolved. Though Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013, something was making them drag their feet. With Lamar in such dire straights after being hospitalized, it’s thought that they agreed to give their marriage another shot so that Khloe could retain control of his medical decisions as his wife.
Khloe has vowed to be by Lamar’s side throughout his entire recovery — which could take months — and this is a definite sign that she’s in it for the long haul. Khloe has been nothing but dedicated and loving since Lamar became comatose on October 13 after a drug overdose. Unwilling to leave his side, she slept on the hospital floor every night.
Lamar is going to heal peacefully knowing that he has Khloe’s love and support without fear of divorce. But is there a romantic component to their decision? It’s unclear if this means round 2 for their actual marriage, or the move is just a practical decision for Lamar’s healthcare. Either way, it’s clear that they care about each other deeply!
