Could Khloe Kardahian and Lamar Odom be getting a sequel? In the wake of Lamar’s near-death experience, Khloe has put her budding relationship with Houston Rockets player James Harden on hold. According to TMZ sources, Khloe put the breaks on James so that she can be with her ex during his long recuperation process.
As we shared earlier, Lamar is out of his coma with Khloe by his side. Doctors are hopeful that he’ll have a recovery with months of therapy.
The couple officially filed for divorce this summer but due to delays in the process, they are technically still married. Khloe has always expressed her love for Lamar—much to the chagrin of her family—and stayed in touch with him throughout his battle with drug addiction. “I love Lamar to death," she said in an interview around the time of her divorce. "He is the love of my life. We had a fantastic marriage. Do I wish he had tried harder? Yes. Do I think that he maybe didn’t have the energy to fight because he was fighting so many other things? Yeah.”
Khloe and James began dating this summer. They were spotted everywhere from yacht parties to the line at Chipotle. The 26-year-old bearded ball player has been romantically linked to celebrities including Amber Rose and Trina.
Stay tuned to see how this love triangle plays out.
Update: Khloe has issued a statement on the issue for the first time on her official website:
“The past week has been incredibly difficult. I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!”
