Khloé Kardashian said her Lamar Odom divorce ‘had to happen’ – Why did she say that?
Khloé Kardashian was married to former NBA Champion Lamar Odom from 2009 to 2016. Odom, a two-time NBA champion with LA Lakers, was introduced to Khloé at a party where the two instantly clicked and decided to get engaged and married within a month of their first meeting.
The two admitted to being happy and blissful in the early days of their marriage, earning more money together than they had been doing separately. But, as it would turn out, maybe they had gone ahead of themselves and gotten married so quickly, without leaving every stone unturned.
After a few months of marriage, Lamar Odom started to show signs of drug addiction. Facing all the stardom and the spotlights after marriage to Khloé Kardashian, which he hadn’t faced even when he won the NBA, Odom had lost his head and went berzerk with his cocaine addiction.
Not only that, Lamar Odom was openly cheating on Khloé with prostitutes. It would be too much for any woman to handle the fact that their husband was out cheating on them, and it becomes all the more difficult to take when you’re a celebrity, and there’s the media and the public constantly scrutinizing you.
He was then arrested for driving under the influence and was placed on three years probation from the NBA for abusing drugs. Khloé had by now realized that she had made a mistake and was now looking to separate from Odom. Kardashian filed for a divorce which both parties signed in June of 2015. The final judgment was yet to be given by the preceding court.
Water went over the head once again, when in mid-October, Lamar Odom went missing from his home for three days. Then, with social media in a gasp, he was discovered unconscious on October 13, 2015, in a brothel in Nevada, where he was passed out, overdosed on cocaine. Quickly rushed to the hospital, Odom suffered kidney failure and six heart attacks along with 12 strokes while comatose. Nevertheless, his doctors stated that it was a ‘miracle’ that he was still alive.
Considering his health condition and Odom’s trauma, Khloé Kardashian decided to withdraw her divorce filing and help Odom recover in the following days. In early 2016, Khloe said in an interview that she was looking forward to seeing him recover, and rekindling their marriage would be a huge deal. “I’m just there to support and care for him. But he is doing amazing”, Khloé said. Odom, too, had made promises that he would never retake drugs.
But it all went down the drain, when soon after months of recovery, Lamar Odom was spotted again drinking, which made Khloé furious, and she again filed for a divorce in May of 2016, this time settling things once and for all.
“Love is blind. Lamar was so great at making me feel like I was the only one and I was his princess. I never speculated cheating I knew nothing until his first DUI case surfaced in 2013.”, Kardashian said in an interview.
In a more recent interview, she said that she still missed him and cherished the time two spent together. “I miss what we had; things we got to do together are just memories. I like looking back and holding on to that stuff. “, stated Kardashian. She also said that she didn’t want to run away from the past but try to learn from it and answer why everything went down the way it did. “I definitely miss it, and there are times I’ll get so sentimental and so sad, but this had to happen for some reason. I’ll figure it out over time; someone will give me that answer eventually.”, she reminisced.
On the other hand, Odom, too, is not happy how their relationship went downhill because of his addiction and infidelity.
“I had 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 habits. I’d get defensive, and Khloé would just drop it.”, he recalled.
“I hope we can be friends. I miss the family. And I hope we can all be reacquainted one day.” he said, wishing he could turn back time and set things right.
Lamar Odom was recently seen posting a comment and series of emojis on Khloé Kardashian’s Instagram post, in which she was seen wearing a bikini. Giving air to the hype on social media could still be a chance that the two could get back together.
This comes after the fact that Khloé recently stated that things were never going to work out for the couple, and she thinks that Lamar is an incredible person, and she wants the best for him in days to come.
