Lamar Odom is said to have accepted the fact there's no chance Khloe Kardashian will ever reconcile with him, especially now that their divorce has been finalized, it has been reported.
Khloe distanced herself from Lamar completely after learning about the former athlete's relapse — she had invested so much time in helping him recover from his shocking overdose last October, so to hear that Odom was back to heading down a dark path simply infuriated her.
And while there may have still been a chance that the twosome would get back together, once Khloe learned about Lamar Odom's drinking habits, she supposedly cut all ties with the former Lakers player before she would go on to fall in love with Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson.
According to Hollywood Life, Lamar Odom's recent decision to check himself into rehab isn't so much for the sake of trying to win Khloe back, knowing very well that he has lost his chance in doing so. Instead, he's just focused on getting himself back on track and consequently living a healthier lifestyle.
It goes without saying, however, that Lamar Odom is distraught by the fact that he will never have Khloe in his life again — as a friend, maybe, but never as a wife.
As seen on the family's reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, all of the TV star's siblings agreed with one another, stressing that Khloe needed to move on from Lamar, E! Online recalls from the episode.
She had done all she could to help him but his stubbornness to seek professional help at a rehab clinic was evidently up to him — there wasn't anything else the 32-year-old could have done for him.
Lamar Odom completely understands that, a source tells the outlet, adding that Lamar has lost the biggest treasure he has had for the past seven years. His substance and alcohol abuse had gotten the better of him and ended up ruining his marriage with Khloe — someone he'll never be able to win back from the way things are currently looking.
"Lamar [Odom] takes things really hard, whether it is something serious or something very little and minuscule," the insider reveals. "So when it comes to his divorce being finalized he is thinking of all the good times, all the help Khloe [Kardashian] gave him when he was in the hospital, and knows he blew it."
"He had a great girl and he will eventually move on, but it is a sad time for Lamar Odom because he knows he let the right girl get away. He is very emotional about it ending officially. Lamar never, ever thought the day would come where Khloe wouldn't be an Odom."
The insider concluded by saying that Odom will eventually move on from the fact that Khloe will never get back with him, but as it currently stands, he's still hurting over it.
His decision to check himself into rehab is Odom's first move in getting his life back on track, having spent almost four years away from the NBA. It's unclear whether Lamar ever plans on making a comeback in the near future, but as of right now, his health is his main priority.
News of Lamar Odom's struggle to accept the ending of his marriage to Khloe Kardashian comes just weeks after reports claimed that the reality star had discussed plans to start a family and get married to Thompson.
It certainly doesn't seem as if Khloe Kardashian would return to Lamar Odom, but what do you think? Can things still change between the twosome, or is it officially over?
