Lamar Odom became unresponsive, yesterday, after several days of partying at a Las Vegas brothel.
He is alleged to have taken a cocktail of substances and herbal viagra. He is currently in a coma, has possible brain damage from multiple strokes, his organs are failing and doctors are giving him a 50/50 chance of surviving.
His former team mates have rallied to support him. And so have the Kardashians.
Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner rushed to Lamar’s side hours after the news broke.
Some fans have wondered why Khloe is there at all (even without KUWTK cameras). Since many fans believed Khloe and Lamar got divorced in July. HOWEVER… turns out that’s not the case.
Are Khloe and Lamar still legally married? Yes.
Khloe and Lamar are husband and wife.
As Khloé Kardashian keeps vigil by Lamar Odom’s hospital bedside, she is still legally his wife, PEOPLE has learned.
Though Kardashian, 31, and Odom, 35, both signed divorce papers in July, a judgement has not yet been entered into court.
As of Wednesday afternoon, Odom is in a coma and remains unresponsive after doctors discovered cocaine and opiates in his system.
Following a whirlwind, month-long courtship, the stars tied the knot on national TV in September 2009. The marriage fell apart after the former basketball player’s cheating scandal and drug relapse, and Kardashian filed for divorce in 2009. The proceedings stalled when Odom wouldn’t sign the papers, and a judge threatened to dismiss the petition all together in April. [via PEOPLE]
UPDATE: TMZ confirms the pair is still married. As Lamar’s wife, Khloe is making medical decisions as Lamar lays in a coma. Why are they still married despite signing paperwork? “Although they signed the final divorce docs… there’s an extreme backlog in the family law courts… the divorce will not become final for at least 2 more months.”
Lamar’s best friend Jamie (featured on reality show Khloe & Lamar) passed away earlier this year.
