Reality star Khloe Kardashian was dating Houston Rockets player James Harden when her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, was hospitalized last week. But now, just over one week after the basketball player suffered an overdose at a Las Vegas brothel, the reality star has taken him back and cut ties with Harden just a few months into their relationship.

Following the news, Harden took to Instagram, where he may have had a telling message for the reality star. According to a Hollywood Life report on October 21, the professional athlete shared a video clip of himself singing Future’s song “Jersey.”
“You do what you want when you poppin’, yeah, you do what you want when you poppin’.”
In another Instagram post, Harden let fans know he wasn’t focused on his split from the reality star, but rather his ongoing preseason games with the Houston Rockets, as well as their regular 2015-2016 season, which begins next Wednesday night when they take on the Denver Nuggets.
On October 21, Hollywood Life revealed how Harden discovered news of his reality star girlfriend’s decision to stay married.
“James found out about Khloe taking Lamar back from friends texting him and Twitter. After that, Khloe got to him and they talked. He is OK with it because he is focused specifically on a NBA Championship, MVP of the league and how to spend his $200 million from Adidas. His life is alright. He is not going to let heartbreak ruin all the good he has in his life. He lives by the code — everything happens for a reason. So don’t feel bad for him.”
Reality star Khloe Kardashian had been estranged from her husband since 2013, but after flying to his side last Tuesday, their relationship took a positive turn. As TMZ revealed at the time, Odom was found unconscious on the afternoon of October 13 by two women working at the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, where Odom has been partying in his VIP suite since the previous Saturday.
Immediately after hearing news of her then-estranged husband’s hospitalization, the reality star boarded a private jet with her mother, Kris Jenner, and sister Kim Kardashian at her side. Once they arrived in Las Vegas, the family discovered news that Odom, who was in a coma at the time, was suffering from multiple failing organs, including his heart, lungs, and kidneys.
While Odom’s prognosis was not good in the days that followed his hospitalization, he took a turn for the better last Friday, when he came out of his coma and began communicating with the reality star and other members of his family who had flown to Las Vegas to be with him, including his children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., their mother, Liza Morales, and his aunt, JaNean Mercer.

At first, Kardashian’s support of Odom was presumed to be nothing more than friendly, but then, on October 21, eight days after Odom suffered an overdose, he and the reality star signed documents to have their divorce petition thrown out. On Wednesday, as TMZ revealed, Kardashian’s attorney appeared before a judge, asking that their request to end their marriage be dismissed, which it was. As for what changed Kardashian’s mind, a separate TMZ report claimed it was Odom’s promise to stay off drugs from here on out.
