Khloe decided to call off her divorce to Lamar because “she thinks that the vultures will pick him apart in his condition,” an insider close to the couple EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com. Khloe’s choice is “a practical decision, rather than a romantic one,” the source added, noting that Lamar still has to prove himself to Khloe before she ever opens her heart all the way to him again.
“This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloe,” another source close to the couple EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com “The most sensible thing to do at such a time is not make any big moves and put everything on hold. So that’s what she is doing.”
Her goal right now “is to protect him,” and she’s been handling this crisis like a boss. She made all his medical decisions when he was comatose in Las Vegas, and while he recovers at Cedars Mount Sinai in California, Khloe is ensuring no one takes his photo. She’s even ready to turn her home into a rehab facility for Lamar when he gets out of the hospital.
Khloe’s take-charge attitude may have rubbed some of Lamar’s family the wrong way, as a few members have “butted heads” with her, the source tells HollywoodLife.com. However, Lamar’s ex, Liza Morales, and his father, Joe Odom, both know “who’s running the show.”
“She thinks that the vultures will pick him apart,” if the divorce went through, the source tells HollywoodLife.com, and that’s one reason why she ultimately called it off. “People have to go to her if they want some money from Lamar now.”
Khloe was clear in her dedication to Lamar during this ordeal, but her sister, Kim Kardashian, was not expecting her to call off the divorce! “On one hand, Kim is happy for Khloe,” a source EXCLUSIVELY tells HollywoodLife.com, “but she’s still apprehensive about Lamar. She just doesn’t think he’s right for Khloe.”
What do you think about Khloe protecting Lamar from “vultures,” HollywoodLifers? Do you think calling off the divorce was the right decision?
