Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have had their fair share of ups and downs over the past two years. For those who haven’t noticed, Lamar has been a media magnet for months now. From cheating scandals to repeated drug abuse, the former NBA star has been spiraling downward for quite some time.
Then, Lamar sparked a media a firestorm when he hit rock bottom on October 13 when he was found unconscious inside a Las Vegas brothel due to an alleged drug overdose after ingesting a deadly concoction of drugs and alcohol. But, even with all of his downfalls, Khloe Kardashian has stood by his side. Shortly after he was rushed to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, it was reported that Khloe Kardashian was at his bedside. It has also been reported that Khloe is covering Lamar’s medical expenses as he fights to recover.
Despite halting their divorce proceedings, Khloe has set the record straight, making it quite clear that she plans to move forward with her life. She intends to support Lamar as he recovers, but that doesn’t necessarily mean she wants to do so as his wife. Khloe Kardashian believes she’s done everything she possibly could to make her marriage work. However, she feels Lamar Odom has not put forth the same effort, and she’s no longer interested in giving chances, according to InTouch Weekly.
“I still very much love Lamar but I need to move forward. I don’t feel you ever really have peace from walking away from any situation that you wish ended up differently. Do I know for a fact that I’ve done every single thing that I could to try to save that marriage? A hundred percent.”
However, Khloe’s mother Kris Jenner, may not have gotten that memo. On the most recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, which aired on Sunday, Dec. 20, the family matriarch found herself at odds with her three oldest daughters due to her repeated attempts to help Khloe and Lamar reconcile their marriage.
The episode, which documents a time prior to his brush with death in Las Vegas, touches on Kris Jenner’s repeated efforts to reach out to her estranged son-in-law, despite Khloe’s disapproval. In fact, Kris’ interventions with Lamar behind Khloe’s back may have led him to believe he and Khloe had a real chance of reconciling although they didn’t. Kris even went a step further by giving Lamar Khloe’s new number even after she’d changed her previous number in an effort to sever ties with her estranged husband.
Needless to say, Kris’ actions not only infuriated Khloe, but her sister’s weren’t very pleased either. Of course, the episode only captures the gist of the argument but shortly after it aired Khloe took to Twitter with details about the big argument, insisting it was much deeper than fans saw. The 32-year-old reality star wishes she could explain the extent of the argument, but refused to elaborate further.
Kris’ actions may have made it more difficult for Khloe to detach from Lamar. But, things definitely didn’t get any easier once he was found unconscious inside the Las Vegas brothel. At this point, it is still unclear how long it will take for Khloe Kardashian to divorce Lamar Odom, but she still adamantly insists the job will get done eventually.
The latest news follows Lamar’s miraculous step toward recovery. It has been reported that he finally walked on his own over the weekend. So, it looks like he’s headed in the right direction. For now, Khloe Kardashian will continue to stand by his side as they both fight to move on with their lives.
