Rumors of a rekindled Khloe Kardashian-Lamar Odom relationship have floated around, well, basically since they filed for divorce in 2013, and there’s no wonder why. Khloe has routinely made it known that she still cares deeply for Lamlam, and despite the separation, Kardashian still calls the former NBA player her soulmate.
Turns out, Khloe Kardashian isn’t the only one who still thinks of a relationship with Odom. In a recent interview with Entertainment Tonight, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians matriarch, Kris Jenner, said that “it’s no secret” that she would like to see Khloe and Lamar get back together.
“I mean, I always want my kids to have a happy ending. All of them. And I consider Lamar [as] one of my kids. So, I fall in love with anybody my kids, you know, bring to me and we have as part of our family. They’ll always be family, so I always want there to be a happy ending.”
Despite filing divorce paperwork in 2013, Khloe and Lamar are still legally married, though they aren’t currently romantically involved. The couple married in 2009 and filed for divorce in 2013 amid allegations of cheating and drug use, but the divorce was never finalized.
Khloe opted to withdraw paperwork in October of 2015 after Lamar was discovered unconscious in a Las Vegas-area brothel after reportedly taking a dangerous mixture of cocaine and a sexual-performance-enhancing drug. The former Los Angeles Laker was rushed to the hospital where he stayed for an extended period of time. Throughout the entire ordeal, Khloe Kardashian was at Odom’s side.

Eventually, the Kocktails with Khloe host moved Odom to a Los Angeles hospital for continued care, and ultimately, Odom was released to continue rehabilitation. Early rumors indicated that Lamar may have been living with Kardashian as he continued rehab, but more recent reports indicated that Odom has since leased a house near Khloe.
Regardless of whether Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom get back together or not, one thing is obvious: Khloe and her family are in it with Odom for the long haul. On Superbowl Sunday, Lamar reportedly went for a hike with Khloe and her sister, Kim Kardashian.
On Thursday, he was with the Kardashian-Jenner clan again when he made his first public appearance at Kanye West’s fashion show for Yeezy Season 3. Kim Kardashian’s husband went so far as to walk Odom to his seat, where he sat with Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, North West, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, and Caitlyn Jenner.

In her ET interview, momager Kris Jenner also talked about Odom’s first public appearance since his hospitalization four months ago, saying that the fashion show outing — which required a plane ride from L.A. to New York — was a “big deal” and “huge step” for Odom.
“Kanye invited [Lamar] to come, and it’s a big deal for him to be able to come. I think it’s a great thing for him to be with the family, and come out and do something that we’re all a part of, and he really wanted to support Kanye. He really wanted to be here for him because Kanye was very instrumental in part of his recovery.”
In the same interview, Jenner said that Kanye was able to help reach Odom through music when few others were able to do so. In fact, Jenner said, Odom began rapping again before he began talking.
In many ways, it seems as if Lamar is still very much a part of the Kardashian-Jenner clan. What do you think of the possibility of Khloe and Lamar getting back together? Do you think that would be a good thing? Why or why not?
