Khloe Kardashian made a very important relationship promise to Lamar Odom while he was comatose and fighting for his life in the hospital — and her refusal to go back on her word is the reason she called off the divorce, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
Lamar Odom’s health scare has put things into a new perspective for Khloe Kardashian. Nearly two years after she filed for divorce, the reality star has had a change of heart, and it’s all because he woke up after she made him a special promise about their relationship. HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE scoop.
“Khloe made her decision to call off the divorce when Lamar was hooked up to tall those machines, lying there, nearly dead,” an insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She was in the depths of grief. She told him that if he pulled through she would call off the divorce. She would never go back on her word to him, especially because she feels like it’s giving him strength to fight his battle.”
Indeed, as we previously reported, Lamar feels Khloe’s love is what’s kept him alive during this ordeal. Her words have clearly had a very powerful effect on him — he reportedly woke up after the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star said “I love you.”
Not one to go back on her word, Khloe had her lawyer go to court on Oct. 21 to get the divorce papers dropped. But the 35-year-old made a big promise himself — to stay off drugs. The ex-basketball star was comatose for nearly four days after an alleged drug overdose, and knows how lucky he was to survive, so he’s prepared to prove himself to Khloe. Still, he’ll definitely need rehab if he wants to be successful at conquering his addictions.
As far as Lamar’s health is concerned, he still has a long way to go, but he’s made vast improvements. “He is beginning to gradually flourish both mentally and physically,” his aunt said in a statement on Oct. 22. “His use of speech has increased and he’s more cognitively responsive. His medical team has executed an aggressive therapy regimen to aid in his process.”
