Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have endured one of the rockiest romances in celebrity relationship and reality TV history. A fairytale wedding didn’t compensate for rumors that Lamar was cheating and abusing drugs. Khloe then filed for divorce. But just as the drawn-out divorce process was almost completed, Kardashian learned that Odom had been discovered unconscious in a brothel.
After nursing Lamar back to health and spending weeks at his side in a hospital, Khloe has continued to support her estranged husband. And because Kardashian put the divorce on hold during his life-or-death crisis so that she could legally retain the role of his medical adviser, they remain technically married. When Odom made his first public appearance after leaving the hospital, Khloe was by his side as they attended Kanye’s fashion show together.
Now, there’s a new sign that Khloe and Lamar are rekindling their romance, as the couple were seen on a romantic dinner date, reported Us Weekly.
Cherishing their time together, Kardashian and Odom were seen dining on Good Friday. Their date took place at Ruth’s Chris Steak House in Woodland Hills, California, a popular restaurant close to the houses in Calabasas in which they reside, conveniently close to each other.
Flaunting her ever-slimmer revenge body, Khloe rocked an outfit in neutral shades. Compared to his always-chic 31-year-old dinner date, 36-year-old Lamar chose California casual in sneakers and camouflage jacket with slacks that matched.
But despite the evidence of that flirty date and the fact that she has been by his side throughout his hospitalization and post-hospital rehabilitation, Kardashian publicly claims that they are not romantic — yet.
However, after rumors swirled that Khloe and Odom were an item again when they appeared before flashing paparazzi at her brother-in-law Kanye’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show last month, Kardashian did confess that she has not stopped considering the possibility of marrying Lamar in the future.
“Technically I’m still f**king married,” pointed out the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star during an episode of her talk show, Kocktails With Khloé.
And when one of her guests questioned Khloe as to whether she wishes she could magically hit “control alt delete” and get a fresh start with Odom, she dropped a relationship bombshell.
“That would be like the best dream. Like, OK, I hope that first marriage could happen again, but it’s really hard to erase everything that happened. Just building a friendship back is what I’m doing now. It has nothing intimately, nothing at all, just pure love, and I want someone to learn how to love themselves again.”
But before wedding bells start ringing for Khloe and Lamar, is Kardashian going on one last fling with someone else? Khloe has a new “booty call,” according to Radar Online.
An insider revealed to Radar that Kardashian is hooking up with The Game.
“He’s been her go-to booty call ever since James Harden cheated on her,” claims that source.
The Game is 36, known as a “bad boy” rapper (real name: Jayceon Terrell Taylor). As to why the new relationship hasn’t come out in public before now, because Khloe remains legally wed to Lamar, hooking up with another guy has proved to be a potentially dangerous situation in terms of how her fans perceive her and how Odom handles it, noted the insider.
“The last thing she wants to do is hurt Lamar, but the truth is that she has needs and he’s in no position to help her right now. Lamar’s recovery is ongoing, but his sex drive is non-existent and he’s crashed out asleep as early as 6 p.m. every night.”
Prior to his almost deadly overdose last year, Odom caused Kardashian to steer clear. But that overdose and brush with death changed everything in their relationship.
“You need a break, so you can process everything, and you need to respect yourself and your own emotions,” explained Khloe.
