Color us wrong. Earlier I said that the Kardashians weren’t technically Lamar Odom’s family any longer, but it turns out they are, legally anyway. Khloe Kardashian and Lamar are still very much married, sort of – at least for a few more months. And it has changed things a bit as far as Lamar’s medical decisions since Khloe is in charge.
TMZ claims that even though Lamar and Khloe finally signed their divorce papers back in July (despite initially filing back in December 2013), the divorce still isn’t official because of a backlog in cases. So technically they are still married and Khloe swooped in to make medical decisions for Lamar while he’s in a coma and unable to make his own.
TMZ revealed, “Although they signed the final divorce docs, we’ve learned there’s an extreme backlog in the family law courts and the divorce will not become final for at least 2 more months. Since they are still husband and wife, Khloe is in a position to make medical decisions for her husband, and we’re told she has already made several of them.”
Khloe is currently still dating NBA player James Harden, but a source told People magazine that if it weren’t for Lamar’s addiction struggles, Khloe would still be with him. “She’s never gotten over it. They’ve always been in touch, she’s very worried about him.”
I’m trying hard to keep the Kardashians out of this story, but this one couldn’t be avoided. I do think they love Lamar and tried like hell to help him and Khloe put up with a hell of a lot as far as the cheating, drugs, etc. That said, I still think it’s gross that they used his phone calls, etc for part of Khloe’s storylines these past few seasons and the “setup” involving him showing up at the same club and all that crap. Anyway, let’s just focus on prayers for Lamar and not his inlaws’ issues… Let’s hope that he pulls through this and really turns things around once and for all.
TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED THESE TWO ARE STILL TECHNICALLY MARRIED?
