Khlo Kardashian Reveals Why She ‘Paused’ Her Divorce From Lamar Odom! – Perez Hilton
Khloé Kardashian gets real about her split from ex-husband Lamar Odom.
After getting married in 2009, the KUWTK star initially filed for divorce from the basketball player in December 2013. However, after the NBA player was hospitalized following an overdose at a Nevada brothel, Kardashian withdrew her petition until their divorce was finalized in December 2016.
Per a clip of PodcastOne‘s Divorce Sucks With Laura Wasser obtained by E! News, the reality TV starlet explained her mentality during that time period.
The 34-year-old recalled:
“He OD’ed during the divorce and I was his next of kin, even though it was still, the divorce was still—it was on the judge’s desk… It was like two years, or like a year or two of us trying to get the divorce going and then this happened… And then we paused the divorce, not for any romantic reasons but I wanted to be able to help take care of him and make sure that he would be okay again.”
According to the Revenge Body host, when the athlete woke up from his coma, the first thing he said was, “Hey babe.”
“I was like, ‘Oh God. What year does he think this is?’ I remember I was like, ‘Oh no. What did I do?!’ Because I was like, ‘Does he know?… And then he went right back to sleep because he was in a coma, woke up, saw me and I might’ve put him back into a coma I don’t know, he probably was terrified.’”
As we reported earlier this week, Odom has deep regrets with how things turned out with his ex-wife, telling People:
“I wish I could have been more of a man. It still bothers me to this day. But regret is something we have to learn to live with.”
In an excerpt from his forthcoming memoir, Darkness to Light, he looks back on happier days and memories with Khloé, many of which were chronicled on KUWTK and Khloé and Lamar:
“For a while, being with her was bliss and I was the happiest I’ve ever been. We were one of the most famous couples in Hollywood and we made more money together than we had individually.”
In regards to his infidelity:
“At the start of our marriage I was faithful to her. I could not handle the lethal cocktail of the spotlight, addiction, a diminishing career and infidelity. Oh, did I mention the paranoia, anxiety, depression… I couldn’t keep my d**k in my pants or the coke out of my nose. Drug addicts are incredibly skilled at hiding their habit. I’d get defensive and Khloé would just drop it.”
As we reported, Khloé reportedly broke up with baby daddy, Tristan Thompson, for good after he allegedly had an affair with Jordyn Woods.
