The divorce is off, but that doesn’t mean Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are back together. In a new interview, the reality star opens up about the reconciliation for the first time, and insists that romance is the farthest thing from her and Lamar’s minds right now.
Having judge sign papers to terminate their divorce wasn’t necessarily the first step on the road to a relationship reconciliation for Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom. In fact, the 31-year-old claims she and her husband aren’t even really getting back together!

For the first time since calling off the divorce on Oct. 21, the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is opening up about her relationship with the former NBA player. “I pulled back on the divorce because there is no rush for it,” she told People magazine. “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.”
Still, retracting the papers means Khloe has chosen to stay loyal to the vows she made to Lamar during their 2009 wedding — that she’ll be there for him during sickness and health. And, clearly, that’s exactly what she’s doing. The reality star flew to his side as soon as she could when he was rushed to the hospital, unconscious, on Oct. 13, and she’s been supporting him ever since.
“I love him always, and I will always love him,” she explained. “I don’t believe love is fickle. I believe when you love someone, you are allowed to love from afar. You don’t have to be with that person in order to love him.” Khloe filed for divorce from Lamar in Dec. 2013, and no matter what’s happened now, she’ll obviously never forget the difficult time he put her through — which involved cheating and alleged drug use — that led her to finally end things.
With his kidneys still giving him major trouble, Lamar still has a long road ahead of him. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, the ex-Lakers star has urged his wife to spend some time outside his hospital room now that he’s in more stable condition, and she’s started to take him up on that. Over the weekend, she attended Kim Kardashian’s baby shower and also found some time to freshen up her look by cutting her long locks into a cute bob.
HollywoodLifers, do you think Khloe and Lamar will end up back together romantically?
