They might not be getting back together, but as Khloe Kardashian has said time and time again: She’ll always love Lamar Odom. In a new interview, the reality star reveals exactly what it is about the ex-NBA star that made her fall head over heels.
A lot went wrong in Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s relationship but that doesn’t mean she’s forgotten about the very best parts of her husband. As the 31-year-old stands strong by the former Lakers star’s side in the hospital, she’s reflecting on what she loves most about the man she married in 2009.
“Lamar loved me for who I was,” the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star told People in her revealing new interview. “He never talked about my weight. That didn’t matter to him. That’s what gave me so much confidence. There are pictures where I’m in a bodycon dress and it isn’t the most flattering, but I’m holding his hand I’m smiling from ear to ear. I was content in my world, and that was enough for me.”
Khloe and Lamar called off their divorce on Oct. 21, but it wasn’t because they were getting back together. “There is no rush for it,” Khloe explained to the mag. “For medical decisions and a ton of other things, it’s just smarter that it’s put on hold. But that doesn’t mean I’m back with Lamar. It’s not even in our brains to think about us having a relationship.”
As she’s said time and time again, Khloe added that she will “always love” her husband, and she doesn’t feel she has to be with him to be in love with him. Plus, People also confirmed that the reality star is still dating James Harden — “He’s been great with me and I’m just allowing everything to unfold,” Khloe revealed — so in terms of romance, her mind is clearly in another place.
