Khloe Kardashian may have called off her divorce from Lamar Odom, but she isn’t letting him off the hook that easy. An insider close to the couple revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com that Lamar is going to have to prove himself to Khloe before she can even trust him again.
Lamar Odom, 35, has to put in a lot of effort if he wants his marriage to Khloe Kardashian, 31, to work the second time around. Even though he and Khloe made the joint decision to call off their divorce, an insider EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com that Lamar will have to work really hard to gain his wife’s trust back.
“For the time being this is a practical decision by Khloe rather than a romantic one. Yes, she still loves Lamar but it’s way to soon to think about them trying to be a loving married couple again,” the insider revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “He would have to prove himself again and again for her to even trust him a little. It’s only been a few days since he was in a coma after spending $75,000 on drugs and hookers in a brothel. Khloe isn’t blind to that.” The former NBA player has a lot to do before he can get his old life back.
Not only will he have to work hard to gain Khloe’s trust, he also has to go through extensive rehab to get better. Thankfully, the 31-year-old is willing to do all she can to make sure Lamar gets the best care in rehabilitation. “She’s already in the process of talking to nurses and rehab practitioners who specialize in Lamar’s condition,” an insider close to the reality star told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s told Lamar and her family that she wants to do this — that she needs to do this — for Lamar and for herself. They’ve come this far together and for Khloe, she’s determined to see him heal all the way through.” Lamar’s health is slowly getting better, but he isn’t out of the woods just yet.
Lamar’s Family Hopes Health Crisis Is A Wake Up Call For Him
She and Lamar’s family hope his near death scare is a wake up call for the former NBA player. With Lamar reportedly improving, though, those close to him are looking towards his future. “Everyone is hoping that this will be a reality check for him,” the source told People, “and that he will make a change in his life and be the man he was created to be.”
Tell us, HollywoodLifers! Do you think it’ll take a while for Khloe to start trusting Lamar again?
