Khloe Kardashian And Lamar Odom Divorce Delayed, As Bruce Jenner Offers Insights And Khloe Pens Self-Help Book

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are permanently split – or sort of back together? Just days after Bruce Jenner revealed how his stepdaughter struggled to accept his transgender announcement and commented on Lamar, sources are saying that the supposedly divorcing duo are actually not ready to formalize their separation, reported the Daily Mail.

But Lamar and Khloe both still hold onto grudges against each other, say insiders.

“There’s bad blood on both sides. It’s not as if he’s begging her to reconcile… he feels betrayed by Khloe as well,” said a source of Lamar’s emotional state.

As for Khloe, she wants Lamar to do something significant to show that he values her. And thus far, those close to Odom say that he’s not at that point to be the one to make the extravagant gesture.

But Khloe recently shared a photo on social media in which she flaunted her tattoo. Showcasing only Lamar’s initials, LO, the tattoo initially symbolized her love for Lamar.

However, while she debates whether to divorce or reunite, Kardashian is focused on promoting her career as a reality TV star, frequently using social media to encourage her fans to tune into Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Although Khloe may seem like the most upbeat member of the Kardashian sisters, she actually was the one who struggled most to accept Bruce Jenner’s transgender announcement, as the Inquisitr reported.

And Jenner listed Lamar as one of the reasons for Khloe’s battle to accept the change.

“You would think out of all of the kids, Khloe was like, the most fun, open-minded, ‘yeah let’s go party.’ That’s not the case with Khloe,” revealed Bruce during his interview with Diane Sawyer.

Showing his insight into Khloe’s life and losses, Bruce emphasized that she has gone through some major challenges in her young life, from father Robert Kardashian to ex Lamar Odom.

“She’s had the toughest time with it, because she’s had a lot of losses in her life. She lost her father at a young age. He died suddenly — cancer. And Lamar had his issues.”

But Khloe made it clear that she supports her step-father and takes pride in his decision to become honest about his authentic self and transgender journey by sharing on social media.

“Just finished watching the #BruceJennerInterview with the family. Bruzer, I’m soooo proud of you! Dads really are heroes.”

What does the future hold for Khloe and Lamar? Although they’re not romantic, Khloe worries about hurting him by divorcing him formally, according to TMZ.

But the famous tattoo photo isn’t as significant as everyone assumed. She’s just fond of her car and wanted to show it off by positioning her hand on the stick shift.

In addition to her debate over Lamar and reality TV promotional work, Khloe is expanding her career by becoming an author, as the Inquisitr revealed.

Khloe’s book will provide women with lifestyle and how-to tips designed to help them become more beautiful and empowered. Regan Arts will publish it on November 3, 2015.

“I am so excited about sharing my philosophy on how I live and the power of strength,” declared Khloe. “I hope to be an inspiration to readers everywhere on how they can create their own true strength and beauty inside and out.”
