Lamar Odom feels that his near death experience following a reported drug overdose has been a ‘blessing in disguise,’ after his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian called off their divorce. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE details on why Lamar thinks the tragedy helped bring them back together.
Lamar Odom, 35 and Khloe Kardashian, 31 shocked the world on Oct. 21 when they agreed to withdraw their divorce papers and give their marriage another go. The reconciliation may never have happened without Lamar’s brush with death that resulted in his hospitalization. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop as to why Lamar sees the silver lining in this tragedy
“Lamar feels like this whole experience has been a blessing in disguise. He’s saying this is his rock bottom and that his new life started the day he woke up from the coma. He needed something drastic to happen to stop Khloe from divorcing him and it happened,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Lamar has a long road to recovery ahead of him and we’re so glad Khloe will be by his side!
Khloe and Lamar signed off on divorce papers back in July, but a court slowdown kept a judge from officially signing off on the paperwork. That snafu left Khloe as his legal next of kin when he was rushed from a Nevada brothel to a Las Vegas hospital on Oct. 13. Khloe is the person in charge of all of his medical decisions related to his care. She stepped up to the plate and never left his side during his hospitalization, and she’s still with him now that he’s recovering back in Los Angeles.
While Khloe may have agreed to call time out on their divorce, HollywoodLife.com told you EXCLUSIVELY that it’s for practical and not romantic reasons. “Yes, she still loves Lamar but its way too soon to think about them trying to be a loving married couple again. He would have to prove himself again and again for her to even trust him a little,” our source tells us. “Lamar is following his heart and hopes and prays Khloe will give him another chance. He’s feeding off of her strength right now.”
