Lamar Odom: 'Everything is up for discussion with Khloe'
Lamar Odom's relationship with Khloe Kardashian "won't ever stop".
The basketball player and reality star Khloe wed in 2009 and announced their split in 2013. After Lamar was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel last October (15), Khloe put divorce proceedings on hold to care for her ailing spouse. But now Lamar is back to full health, and was even seen apparently drinking and partying in recent weeks, Khloe is said to be moving forward with ending their marriage.
Speaking about his relationship while at Kobe Bryant's final game for The Los Angeles Lakers on Wednesday night (13Apr16), Lamar insisted nothing is set in stone.
"We did talk, you know, everything is (up for) discussion," Lamar told Entertainment Tonight. “We talk about anything. We’ve been through a lot. It won’t ever stop. I still got it."
Lamar also addressed rumours that he is drinking again, after he was photographed boozing before an Easter church service last month (Mar16).
"I mean, it gets tough, especially if so much gets speculated," he said of the pictures. "Only a few people know the truth, and I just keep that close to my heart."
It was reported on Wednesday (13Apr16) that Khloe is "ready to move on" from the relationship. According to sources, Khloe had urged Lamar to seek help in rehab after the drinking pictures emerged but Lamar, who has a history of addiction issues, has refused.
"She doesn't agree with some of Lamar's choices in the past few weeks," a source told People. "She plans on refiling for divorce soon. She and Lamar are just figuring out the finances first."
These claims come after Khloe shared a philosophical quote with her fans on Instagram on Sunday (10Apr16) before detailing her personal struggle in a lengthy accompanying caption.
"Letting go doesn't mean that you don't care about someone anymore," the 31-year-old wrote. "It's just realizing that the only person you really have control over is yourself.
"Letting go with love takes great strength. We have to learn to stop taking on peoples (sic) problems as if they are our own. Loving people does not mean we have to carry their burdens and confusions on our back."
Khloe went on to explain she believes "timing is everything", and that you have to realise when it's time to move on for your own good.
"Stop shattering your own heart by trying to make a relationship (friend, family, partner) work that clearly isn't meant to work...," she continued. "Sometimes the person you want most is the person you're best without."
