KoKo and Lam-Lam, together again. Kardashian family matriarch Kris Jenner reacted to her daughter Khloe Kardashian calling off her divorce from Lamar Odom on Wednesday, Oct. 21, as the athlete remains hospitalized.
Jenner, 59, directly confirmed the news about her daughter and Odom giving their marriage a second chance to her longtime pal Billy Bush. "Nothing but love," Jenner told the Access Hollywood host.
Us Weekly confirmed that Kardashian family lawyer Laura Wasser — affectionately referred to as the "Disso Queen" by her admirers — went before a judge on Wednesday morning and asked to withdraw the couple's divorce filing, which was signed by both Kardashian and Odom this past July. As confirmed by Us last week, their divorce, first filed by Kardashian in December 2013, had yet to be finalized as the judge hadn't signed off on the papers.
"This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloe," one insider told Us on Wednesday of the situation. "And the most sensible thing to do at such a time is not make any big moves and put everything on hold. So that’s what [Khloe] is doing."
Odom, 35, was found unconscious last Tuesday, Oct. 13, at the Love Ranch South, a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nev. He remained unconscious and in critical condition for 72 hours. During that time, Odom's then-estranged wife rushed to his bedside at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where she barely left his side and made medical decisions on his behalf.
"It has been very hard on her," an insider previously told Us of the reality star, adding that Khloe was "like a shell of a person" as Odom remained unconscious.
Luckily, she found support in her family members, and especially in her mom. "Making these decisions is very hard. Kris came and was very helpful and supportive," the source told Us. "Most people have been waiting in a waiting room outside the room and will go in one at a time. Khloe has really been the only one in the room 24/7, sleeping by his bedside and keeping vigil."
This past Monday, Odom was discharged from Sunrise Hospital and transported via helicopter from Las Vegas to Cedars-Sinai Hospital in L.A. Joining the athlete on his journey back to L.A. was his wife, who released her first official statement on Tuesday, Oct. 20.
"The past week has been incredibly difficult," Khloe wrote on her website. "I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made. You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!"
Us Weekly also confirmed on Tuesday that Kardashian had put her relationship with her boyfriend James Harden "on hold" as she tends to Odom's recovery.
