Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom reportedly spent Valentine’s Day together this Sunday, giving rise to the speculation that the two former flames are finally back together.
But are they, really? Let’s spot the signs.
According to E! News, Khloe and Lamar did spend a “quiet and low-key holiday together” this Sunday, but that it was “more of a day of friendship than romantic love.” Lamar Odom even gave the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star beautiful flowers “for being the woman and friend he will always love.”
“Lamar appreciates Khloe so much for everything she has done for him these past few months,” the source added.
The platonic date between Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian occurred just days after the two were seen together at the Yeezy Season 3 show last week. It was also Lamar Odom’s first official public appearance since he was found unconscious due to a drug overdose in a Nevada brothel back in October. Khloe and Lamar were spotted sitting next to each other and acted like really close friends during the entire show.
While the relationship between the two may be platonic, the thing that crosses many people’s minds is whether they are now on the verge of getting back together. There are indeed many signs that point to that possibility. For one, Khloe didn’t travel with her Kardashian-Jenner family on her way to New York, as per her usual; she went on board a private jet with Lamar instead. OK! News revealed that the two seemed to be in good spirits when they boarded the plane, so one can assume that sparks were flying at that particular moment.
Lamar Odom was also included in the Kardashian-Jenner family photo taken at the Yeezus Season 3 show in New York last week. Along with Lamar and Khloe, other members included in the photo were Kourtney, Kim, Kanye West, Kendall, Kylie, Caitlyn, and queen momager Kris Jenner. Rob Kardashian wasn’t included, but that’s another story.
Even Khloe’s mother, Kris Jenner, has made it known that she wants Odom and her daughter to get back together, even saying that she considers the retired basketball player as “one of her kids.”
“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.”
It’s also worth noting that Khloe Kardashian just broke up with James Harden weeks ago, as reported in the Hollywood Life. Khloe said that Harden has been “very supportive about everything.” She, however, chose to stay mum about the specific reason for the break-up. Of course, the seemingly convenient timing only added to the speculation that she may have done so to pave the way for a reconciliation with Odom.
On Valentine’s Day, the Strong Looks Better Naked author shared a cryptic Instagram post about “spending your time on those who love unconditionally” and not wasting it on “those who only love you when the conditions are right for them.”
Here’s what she said in the caption.
“We have to learn to accept the love we AREN’T given. Believe them when they show you their true colors.
“Stop trying to repaint that person into a shade they are not. To realize, that although we put someone on a pedestal, that does not mean that their judgment defines who we are.
“We must learn to love ourselves first unconditionally. So we have the strength to not let others love us on their conditions.”
We have to learn to accept the love we AREN'T given. Believe them when they show you their true colors. Stop trying to repaint that person into a shade they are not. To realize, that although we put someone on a pedestal, that does not mean that their judgment defines who we are. We must learn to love ourselves first unconditionally. So we have the strength to not let others love us on their conditions. In conditional love: love is 'earned' on the basis of conscious or unconscious conditions. Conditional love is purely based off of how one can benefit. You, in a sense are paying for another's love. Constantly auditioning for a spot in their lives. Whereas in unconditional love, love is given freely no matter what. With acceptance and purity. Loving is primary. Conditional love requires some kind of finite exchange, whereas unconditional love is seen as infinite and measureless. I think that, at any given point, we are faced with the choice of whether to move on with what the universe gives and takes or to hold on and bury ourselves in our own misery. The choice is yours. Choose your happy over anything else. Love is different for us all. Be strong enough to Accept only unconditional love.
Was Khloe referring to Lamar Odom? Many fans feel so. After all, why would she contradict her very own words? Again, this is another sign that Khloe may have her eyes set on getting back with her husband. Khloe also suspended the proceedings of her divorce with Lamar, which points fans to another sign that the two are on the verge of rekindling their old romance.
