Even before Lamar Odom nearly died, Khloe Kardashian wasn’t ready to let go of her relationship with him. In a preview clip for the Dec. 13 episode of ‘KUWTK,’ she gets emotional while talking about her ex, and admits to Kim Kardashian that she’ll never be able to cut him out of her life completely.
Khloe Kardashian has moved on from Lamar Odom romantically, but that doesn’t mean he’s not going to be in her life — and it’s not just because he’s in the hospital with months of recovery ahead of him. Even before Lamar’s tragic alleged drug overdose, Khloe was unable to let the former NBA star go…and she’s not afraid to admit it. Watch the Keeping Up With The Kardashians clip here!
While chatting with her sister, Kim Kardashian, Khloe can’t avoid the topic of her impending divorce finalization, and the conversation takes place weeks before Lamar was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. But while the 35-year-old says she finally feels like Khloe is close to being “over it,” her little sis has an explanation for why she’s continued to appear so attached.
“You mistake my kindness for me going back with someone,” the 31-year-old says. “You don’t marry someone and then cut them out of your life that easily. I care about Lamar, so I want the best for him. I just want the best for his well-being.” Hmm…does anyone else find the whole statement a liiiiiittle bit awkward since Kim totally cut Kris Humphries out of her life after their divorce?!
Of course, this conversation is clearly leading up to the tragic events that are soon to unfold in Khloe and Lamar’s life — the reality star wound up calling off their divorce in order to make Lamar’s medical decisions after he was comatose for days in October. Luckily, he’s recovering now, albeit still in the hospital, and there’s months of rehab ahead.
Khloe still plans on being there for Lamar throughout his recovery, but don’t forget — she’s still in a relationship with James Harden. “It’s been a weird situation,” she’s admitted, adding, “We make it work.” It’s gotta be tough juggling it all, but we know if anyone can handle it, it’s Khloe.
