Khloe Kardashian: ‘I Have Not Reunited With Lamar Odom’
Reality TV star Khloe Kardashian put her divorce from Lamar Odom on hold due to his medical crisis, but insists they are not reuniting.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star flew to her estranged husband’s side after he was hospitalized in Las Vegas on October 13 following his collapse in a brothel, and she has been supporting him while he recuperates.
During the crisis, it emerged that the couple’s divorce case had been dropped, sparking reports they had decided to give their marriage another try.
However, Kardashian has now spoken out to insist they are not back together, and she has simply postponed the legal proceedings until Odom is well enough to cope.
“I pulled back on the divorce because there is no rush for it,” she told People magazine. “For medical reasons and a ton of other things, it’s just smarter that it’s put on hold. But that does not mean I’m back with Lamar. It’s not even in our brains to think about us having a relationship. Only time will tell.”
The sports star reportedly suffered a series of debilitating strokes and faces a lengthy recovery process, and Kardashian insists she will continue to support him even if they are not a couple.
“There is a very long road ahead of him, and he has to walk that road by himself… I’ll be there supporting him every step of the way. I love Lamar, and I’ll be there for him like I promised.”
Kardashian goes on to reveal Odom’s condition is still serious, but she is hopeful that he will make a good recovery: “You never know what to expect in life. I had to get there (to support him). All I wanted was for him to be OK… Every hour is different. It goes up and it goes down. Things are progressing, but it’s a very serious situation.”
