Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are giving their marriage a second chance.
Khloe and Lamar got married in 2009. They split because of Lamar’s drug use and cheating (that he bragged about in a mock “rap video” he made with friends).
Khloe filed for divorce in December 2013. She stalled for 18 months and tried to save their marriage. Due to a backlog in the court system files from July 2015 were not processed. So Khloe and Lamar never got divorced.
Lamar was recently found unconscious in a brothel after a suspected drug binge. Khloe was at Lamar’s side through his hospital stay. She vowed to stay by his side through rehabilitation.
Khloe admitted on previous seasons of KUWTK that she didn’t want to divorce Lamar. Khloe filed for divorce in 2009 because Lamar’s problems caused Khloe problems (for example Khloe became depressed and withdrawn).
Khloe and Lamar jointly filed court documents this week to call off their divorce (so the paperwork that is currently in the backlog/system can be ignored).
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.
They both signed the document Wasser presented to the judge, asking that the divorce case be dismissed. [via TMZ]
UPDATE Us sources add: “This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloe, and the most sensible thing to do at such a time is not make any big moves and put everything on hold. So that’s what she is doing.”
