Could Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian be giving their marriage another shot? The two have been spending tons of time together since Lamar Odom’s tragic overdose in October, and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star is newly single after splitting from Houston Rockets player James Harden.
Although Lamar Odom and Kardashian have not yet confirmed any plans for a reconciliation, a source claims the former couple are closer than ever after she moved him close to her Calabasas, California, home to continue his recovery.
“When [Lamar Odom] isn’t in physical therapy he is with Khloe. They continue to be closer than ever. No one really knows what will happen with them in the future,” a source told E! News on February 8, adding Lamar Odom “has a very positive attitude, Khloe is so proud of him. She encourages and motivates him everyday.”
Lamar Odom suffered a drug overdose in October of last year. Right away, Kardashian, along with sister Kim and mother Kris Jenner, boarded a private jet and flew to be at his side, where she remained for three days straight as he laid in a coma. Once Lamar Odom awoke, he and Kardashian traveled to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center via medical helicopter, and for three months, Lamar Odom was treated at the facility until his January release.
“Right now, they have him focusing on lower body strength exercises. He makes a little bit of progress everyday, but it’s still baby steps,” the source explained of Lamar Odom’s progress. “He went from not being able to even stand on his own, to now, he is almost power-walking.”
Just days ago, prior to watching the Super Bowl with Kardashian and her family, the former couple, along with Kim, took a hike through Los Angeles. During their walk, Kim shared the photo below with fans.

Weeks ago, Kourtney Kardashian appeared on The Ellen Degeneres Show, and during her appearance, Khloe appeared on set via Skype and spoke of her husband.
“[Lamar Odom’s] long-term memory is great,” Khloe told Degeneres, according to E! News. “His short-term memory isn’t so good, but if I met someone earlier today, I probably wouldn’t remember either, so that’s understandable. But he’s great.”
Following a relationship with French Montana, Kardashian began dating Harden in early summer of last year, but after attempting to sustain their relationship throughout Lamar Odom’s recovery, the couple parted ways.

According to an E! News source, “nothing really [bad] happened” between Kardashian and Harden. “They just barely saw each other the past few months and it died out.”
As for Lamar Odom and Kardashian’s relationship, she filed for divorce in December 2013, but the divorce hadn’t been finalized by the time of his hospitalization, which left her in charge of key medical decisions. And rather than continue with the divorce as Lamar Odom recovered, the couple chose to have their divorce petition thrown out so that Kardashian could be fully active in his medical care.
Although Kardashian is expected to re-file at some point, she has yet to do so. And because she’s spending so much time with Lamar Odom, there appears to be at least a slight chance that they could ultimately stay together.
