In what’s likely an unsurprising development in the Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian… situation (?), they have apparently decided to call off their divorce and give their relationship another shot. Lamar went missing and wouldn’t sign the documents for well over a year after Khloe filed them, but he finally did… and then nothing else happened. Since their divorce wasn’t finalized, they’ve just withdrawn the paperwork, with one condition: Lamar has apparently vowed to stay away from drugs. Huh. Sounds familiar!
Khloe’s lawyer Laura Wasser went before a judge Wednesday morning, asking a judge to withdraw the papers they both signed to end their marriage. The file was sitting in a pile waiting to be processed and signed by a judge.
The judge granted Wasser’s request and the file is now dead.
Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013, but sat on it for a year and a half because she tried to save her marriage by trying to get Lamar into rehab. She finally gave up this summer.
As we reported, Khloe privately vowed to be by Lamar’s side during his recovery, which will take months, and a few days ago they both agreed to give their marriage another chance. They both signed the document Wasser presented to the judge, asking that the divorce case be dismissed.
Our sources tell us, Lamar told Khloe over the weekend he knew he cheated death, promising, “I am done with drugs.” He also thanked her profusely for coming to Vegas and supporting him. He repeatedly told her that he loved her, and that was enough.
We’re told made the decision right then to drop the divorce and nurse Lamar back to health.
Apparently not everyone in the Kardashian family is convinced, because as much as they care for Lamar, they’ve heard this song and dance before. The difference here is that the guy did almost die and was in a coma, and as I’ve said before, if that’s not enough to scare you straight, what will be?
I did always like Khloe and Lamar together (on TV), so who knows, maybe this will work out and Lamar will find a way to get his life together and get not only some rehab, but some SERIOUS therapy for all he’s been through that has likely exacerbated this type of behavior. He should know by now that it’s not as easy as saying “I won’t do drugs!” because if it was that easy, he would have quit ages ago. Drugs destroy lives, and I hope he gets that now. If he doesn’t, he never will.
