Khloe Kardashian files for divorce from Lamar Odom for the second time


Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom the first time back in December 2013. It feels like it was so long ago. Lamar never responded to Khloe’s divorce petition, and he actively avoided being served with the paperwork, which meant that the divorce was in limbo for more than a year and a half. When Lamar overdosed last year, Khloe asked the court to suspend the divorce filing so she could still legally take care of Lamar (and make his medical decisions) as his wife. Nowadays, Lamar is doing better. I believe that Khloe is paying for Lamar’s ongoing treatment, and she’s rented a house for him close to her own house. But she’s still done. She still wants the divorce. So she’s re-filed.

Khloe Kardashian has just gone to court a second time to end her marriage to Lamar Odom … TMZ has learned. Khloe, with the help of attorney Laura Wasser, filed for divorce Thursday, claiming — as she did the first time — irreconcilable differences. Our sources say there is a prenup and the 2 worked out a property settlement the first time around, so now it’s just a waiting game. In California, a divorce cannot become final until 6 months after it’s filed. We’re told the divorce is amicable … Khloe and Lamar are on good terms and he was given a heads-up she was filing.

TMZ broke the story … Khloe filed for divorce the first time in December 2013, and the paperwork just sat in the courthouse as she tried to salvage her marriage. When Lamar OD’d at a Nevada brothel last October Khloe dismissed her divorce petition … just weeks before the divorce was to become final. She says it was never about getting back with Lamar … she just didn’t want to upset him while he was recovering. But the final straw came in March when Khloe saw pics on TMZ that Lamar was drinking again.

I know a lot of people believed that Khloe and Lamar’s situation during his hospitalization and recovery was shady, but I sort of believed that she was genuinely trying to do right by him. Maybe that makes me a Khloe Apologist, but I think she loved him, she wanted to take care of him and she was just trying to do her best. But she’s done being married to him. People Magazine had a lengthy story about what was going on behind the scenes, with sources saying:

“This was always the plan. The divorce has never been officially off. Khloé was waiting for the timing to be right…She was loyal for a long time and taking care of him, but she’s not a babysitter and needs to move on with her life. She’s honestly fine and it’s more of a formality at this point. She’s there for him and they’re in regular contact and she wishes him well. She’ll always be there for him. But as far as their marriage is concerned, that’s over and has been for quite some time. It was time to make it official. Khloé told Lamar. He wasn’t blindsided. He knew it was coming. It was amicable. Khloé cares about Lamar and he’ll always be in her life. But there is only so much you can do for a person. You can’t help or fix someone who won’t fix themselves.”

I believe all of that too. She probably will still take care of him, as much as she can, but at this point, she wants to be done with all of this.

Here are some photos of the K-Klan out last night in LA to celebrate Scott Disick’s birthday. Khloe looks absurd here.

    I thought that was an afghan hound at first!

  2. Kitten says:

    And here we have the OPPOSITE of Rihanna. That outfit is just..NO. She is not pulling it off and she looks ridiculous.

    • C says:

      Is it cold or hot? Kim is almost naked and she is wearing a fur coat. Ridiculous.

      • Honey says:

        It doesn’t matter how the weather is, it’s all about the fashion baby! Somewhere in the world (not Monaco though), Kelly Rutherford is nodding her head in approval at these head to toe white outfits.

  3. Honey says:

    Wow, that headband and fur coat look at the end…no words!

  4. saras says:

    Unless he almost dies again and she can milk more press and money…

  5. swak says:

    I’m sorry, but you do not exploit a person at the lowest point in their life by putting it on your reality show. Also, a big NO to both Khloe and Kim’s outfits.

    • Jwoolman says:

      I’m willing to believe she has had mixed motives. But her behavior at the hospital strongly suggests to me that she was also worried about what secrets Lamar might spill if she left him alone with anybody other than the Kardashian Klan. He said he would just a few days before it all happened if they continued to use him and misrepresent him on their show – which they did. The episode aired while he was at the brothel and he got a phone call about it, that’s when he went over the edge. Hence her pushing his family and friends away rather than welcoming their help, always staying in the room, and filling up the visitor schedule with the K Klan. She relaxed when it became apparent that his memory was not working very well and so he was no longer a threat.

      Khloe may feel some residual affection for the guy, but she may be driven by other feelings as well. The help she’s providing may be damage control, to make sure he thinks kindly of her and the K’s and none of the other memories surface. Or maybe she’s actually feeling guilty about her part in the harassment, as she should.

      But obviously no long-term lessons have been learned. They are right back to exploiting him for their stupid show.

  6. Blahhh says:

    j. Lo wore it best 16 years ago.

  7. who says:

    Well, they already milked his near death experience as far as they could. Time to toss him out again.

    • mary simon says:

      Maybe he’ll do something stupid and self destructive again and end up back on the show.

  8. Honey says:

    Lol I didn’t even see Kim standing next to her wearing an equally hideous outfit!!

  9. Lilacflowers says:

    Well, she can’t let Amber get all the divorce coverage.

    How do people who come into contact with that clan in those get-ups not laugh in their faces?

    • Jwoolman says:

      I’ve actually seen the look on bystanders faces that weren’t cropped out of photos. People outside their circle do find them ridiculous.

  10. ItDoesntReallyMatter says:

    They both look awful! So funny to be so rich and yet look so tacky/ugly. Like you raided the Salvation Army sale rack.

    And both their little whittled down noses crack me up. I am constantly shocked how so many pretty women look so ugly after getting work done.

    I do love the freak show however! Makes me feel really good that I can’t afford to get work done. 😉

  11. Bridget says:

    So what you’re saying is, she’s wrung everything she can from this. Didn’t Lamar end up telling her to go away?

    • Boo says:

      Yes. She’s spinning this in a way that’s demeaning to him. I used to like her but no more. I’m glad Lamar told her to get lost. Her effect on his life was tragic.

  12. paolanqar says:

    omg what the hell is she wearing! A bigger headband would be good, big enough to cover her face.
    she thinks she is so hip but is is just a big fat NOPE.

  13. artpunk44 says:

    Kim’s ‘outfit’ – Budget Victorian Lingerie Eaten by Moths, which looks to be curated from a castaway lingerie bin.

    Khloe’s outfit is beyond absurd, but I’m too distracted by her purchased posterior.

    All that money, and it still can’t buy them class.

  14. FingerBinger says:

    Is the weather in LA hot or cold? Kim is practically naked but Khloe has on coat. I’m so confused.

    • AnnaKist says:

      In the days when she was always in the too-long-too-big coats, in the warm weather, didn’t she say she was always cold, hence the coats? She also said they were to hide her fat arms, as I recall. Is it the white lace-curtain dress or lack of Photoshop, because her hips look much wider than last week in the mould dress. And again, little North is in the scraggy denim shorts…

      • Dr. Funkenstein says:

        Kim’s hips also look like they’re migrating south. Is it just me? Her center of gravity looks a lot lower these days.

      • me says:

        She probably couldn’t wear her usual 2 pairs of spanx under that see thru dress.

  15. guest says:

    I said this on another site, but that’s Kid Rock, cosplaying as Khloe Kardashian.

  16. Margo S. says:

    Kim looks more absurd if you ask me! Wtf?!

  17. Lauren says:

    Didn’t she say a few days ago that she doesn’t believe in divorce? What? Lamar is not needed anymore for some plot on her reality? Say what you want, but between all the sisters she’s the worst.

    • swak says:

      From TMZ today re Khloe’s divorce: “Our sources say Khloe sat Lamar down recently and explained she wanted a family, and couldn’t even start the process of looking until she was single again.”

      Yet she was out and about with French Montana and James Hardin. Guess they were father material.

  18. MzzFariM says:

    Yeti fab fug…… o_O

  19. Net says:

    What in grandma’s knickers did that woman do to her head??? Pigtails on top? FAB. Headband over it? GLAM.


  20. me says:

    Those are the clothes you wear to a birthday party? E cameras were there so that tells you something.

  21. lassie says:

    Kim has armpit cleavage in that table cloth.

  22. ReineDidon says:

    I actually love Kim’s dress. Which is surprising me.

    I think Khloe went Krazy and nasty a long time ago.

  23. The Original G says:

    FWIW, I believe that Khloe loved/loves Lamar and everyone hoped that this would work out.

    I also think that Khloe looks like the hostess for the Tribble Lounge at the Intergalactic Casino.

  24. Lady Amalthea says:

    Call me a Khloe apologist, but I really do believe that she loves Lamar and feels like he’s part of her family, especially since he has no real other family. It seems like she desperately wanted things to work out, and even when she realized that they wouldn’t, that didn’t mean she stopped caring about Lamar. Who else did he have who would have taken care of him when he was so sick? He didn’t exactly have friends and family crawling out of the woodwork to cover his medical bills and help him learn how to walk again.

    People can be superficial and fame-hungry and still be good-hearted and compassionate. Khloe always struck me as a sweet lady.
