Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce from Lamar Odom. The reality star and her NBA star husband have been on the outs for months following cheating and drug scandals that completely ruined their relationship. On Dec. 13, TMZ reported that Khloe filed paperwork in Los Angeles and cited the ever-popular "irreconcilable differences" as her reason for the legal split.
There shouldn't be any funny business as far as divorce proceedings go -- both Khloe and Lamar are protected thanks to a prenuptial agreement. This divorce is not a surprise by any means -- but it is curious that Khloe filed just 2 weeks before Christmas when this has been an ongoing problem.
Khloe Kardashian didn't divorce Lamar Odom right away because she tried to make her marriage work. She really loved Lamar and no one wants to admit that their marriage failed -- especially when people already expected it to. Khloe and Lamar have been on the outs for months but Khloe took her time and filed when she felt her marriage was beyond repair. And evidently that time is now.
As previously reported, Khloe was recently spotted out without her wedding ring -- a surefire sign that she and Lamar were through. Some believe that the removal of one's wedding ring is a sign of acceptance -- that it's really over.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom's divorce should be finalized in 6 months -- the standard for Calif. Khloe has also requested her name be changed back to "Khloe Kardashian," dropping Odom completely.
