Khloe Kardashian seems surrounded by drama these days. From the shocking discovery of her estranged husband Lamar Odom at a brothel after an overdose to what some are calling a miracle recovery to the very public split she just endured with ex-boyfriend James Harden, Khloe has survived months of chaos. Now Kardashian is dishing up more details of both her recent past as well as insights into the drama that occurred when her deceased father, Robert Kardashian, was involved in the O.J. Simpson trial.
Although Kardashian defended Simpson, Khloe shared that her father did not tell family members any insights about the case, reported Hollywood Life.
But the 31-year-old reality TV star now feels that the stress of that case killed her father.
“What I do respect is that [regardless of] what my dad did or didn’t know, my dad would never betray his friend’s trust,” revealed Khloe. “He never spoke about it. My dad also died of throat cancer which does not run in my family. My dad doesn’t smoke, doesn’t drink. I think holding in secrets [and] stress kills you! I feel like you manifest things, you have to think — I’m into symbolic situations.”
When it comes to symbolism, fans are fluttering over what it means that her brother Rob Kardashian, who has riled the family including Khloe by dating Blac Chyna, has now popped up with Khloe’s ex boyfriend French Montana. Is it a symbolic slam to Khloe, or is her brother just having some fun?
With objections from Kardashian family members about his relationship with Blac Chyna, the 28-year-old seemed to hint that he was publicizing his meetup with French as a diss, reported Radar Online.
“Khloe feels so betrayed by Rob, because he’s told her to back off since moving in with Blac,” an insider revealed to Radar. “She doesn’t like this relationship one bit, knowing just how much he wears his heart on his sleeve.”
Kardashian was living in Khloe’s house until his hook-up with Blac Chyna caused a backlash among his sisters, reported People.
Rob then moved in with Blac Chyna prior to getting help from momager Kris Jenner to purchased his own $2.285 million, four-bedroom, 4,256-square-foot mansion in Calabasas, California. The couple plan to live together there.
As for Khloe’s own relationships right now? They’re complicated, with a recent split from James Harden and a continuation of her support for Lamar Odom.
Kardashian recently shared the details of what caused her breakup with Harden, reported the Daily Mail.
Going through it in public made it much more challenging, Khloe wrote on her website.
“It’s almost like you have to go through it twice: privately and publicly. I’ve been there, for sure, and it’s hard,” admitted Kardashian. “It’s humiliating. It’s like pouring salt into an open wound. It definitely makes it hard to close that chapter of your life.”
Although Khloe noted that sometimes relationships simply don’t work and that results in a split rather than cheating, Kardashian also revealed that Harden had been unfaithful.
With that romance over, does it mean that Khloe might rekindle the spark with Lamar? After his brush with death following the drug overdose in the Nevada brothel, Odom has received ongoing support from Kardashian. Although Khloe had filed for divorce, it had not been finalized. Kardashian put the divorce on hold so that as his legal wife, she could make Lamar’s medical decisions for him.
Now that Odom has been released from the hospital, the possibility that they could rekindle their romance has come up. Kardashian addressed the subject while appearing on The Talk, according to the Vine Report.
Khloe shared that she continues to love Lamar and believe in her wedding vows.
“I love him with every fiber of my being,” emphasized Kardashian. “We were married and I shared that union with him. I didn’t want for our divorce to happen, but it happened for many reasons and that doesn’t mean I just forget about this person.”
Moreover, although she denied that they’re romantic at this point, Khloe admitted that she continues to care deeply for Odom.
“I still believe in my vows of being there for him. I know it’s confusing. it’s very confusing. It’s not a romantic place. It’s coming from a place of real care and concern and love,” she added.
