According to Life & Style (via a June 19 Hollywood Life report), "Lamar wants Khloe back. He does not want to end the marriage, and that’s why he won’t sign the divorce papers. He just won’t let her go. He’s sober and back on track now — and thinks he can get her back."
On December 13, Kardashian filed for divorce from the former LA Clipper. Rumors floated around that he had struggled with infidelity and drug use during their marriage. Odom was quick to own up to his mistakes. As he told Us Weekly in February, "we all have regrets, but the thing is to learn from life. There's no one in this room, no one in this world who can say, 'I'm mistake-free, I have made no mistakes.'"
The former LA Laker didn't seem ready to accept the fact that their marriage is over. As he explained, "I love my wife. She'll always be my wife, no matter what. Who knows? We don't know exactly if [the divorce is going through]. Only time will tell. I hope not. But even if we were divorced, she would always be my wife."
Last month, Kardashian was worried that her ex-husband could be stalking her. In May, Odom was denied entry into a club where she had been hanging out with her boyfriend, French Montana. According to TMZ, the club feared that Odom would try to start a fight with Montana.
Hollywood Life sources also suggested that Odom had known that his ex-wife and her new beau would be there, and that he had deliberately planned on crashing their date night. According to the insider, "she couldn't believe he was there. What a stalker – French Montana is well-known here and he and the club publicized he would be there — I’m certain Lamar knew that."
Odom really seems determined in his efforts to save their marriage. But what are his motives? According to a June 20 Contactmusic report, sister Kim Kardashian and stepfather Bruce Jenner suspect that he is using her to boost his public image. According to an insider, ''they are very skeptical of him. They think he's using Khloe for fame.'"
Why hasn't Lamar Odom signed the divorce papers yet? Is he still hung up on his ex-wife? Or is he trying to use the Kardashian brand to keep himself in the spotlight? Does Odom have any hope of saving his marriage? Or has Khloe Kardashian moved on for good?
