Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom may have split up last year, but the couple never finalized their divorce, leaving the door open for what inside sources say could be a reunion.
The pair split last year after very well publicized issues, including allegations of infidelity and an apparent refusal on Odom’s part to go to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction. But while they separated, Khloe and Lamar apparently never went through the legal steps necessary to finalize their divorce.
“It’s been nine months since Khloe filed for divorce from Lamar – yet the couple remains officially married,” a source told Star magazine. “Why? According to certified family and divorce attorney Kelly Chang Rickert, Lamar never responded, which could have been easily rectified had Khloe filed a default judgment. That basically means Khloe doesn’t need a response to get a divorce. Yet she hasn’t filed, Khloe could be letting the divorce sit in hopes of reconciliation.”
The source added that Khloe Kardashian still has feelings for Lamar Odom, leaving open the possibility of a reconciliation.
If Kris Jenner can do anything about it, Khoe and Lamar will remain apart. Sources say Khloe’s mother has been trying to keep her from getting back with the former NBA player.
“Kris always feared this would happen because she knew, as Khloe’s mother, that her daughter wasn’t over Lamar,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Kris feels that Khloe needs to stay single and just heal, something she never really did because she got so hot and heavy with French Montana, which Kris thinks was a total distraction. She always liked French but knew it was a rebound relationship that wouldn’t last.”
But Lamar Odom may already be making his move. This weekend Khloe Kardashian posted a picture on Instagram of a bouquet of roses she had received, though she did not say who they were from. But signs could point to Lamar, who sent Khloe roses back on Valentine’s Day.
