Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom in December of 2013, after a troubling video him obviously on drugs surface. It was the final straw for the reality star after months of cheating allegations and drug abuse.
But Odom first ignored the divorce petition and continues to ignore it because, according to Hollywood Life, he loves her too much to let her go. So, for over the past year and a half he has ignored the petition even though the couple sold the house they owned. TMZ reports the home sold for $5.5 million, but the money is just sitting there because their divorce is unsettled.
A source close to the Karsashians told TMZ that Khloe just doesn’t want to deal with the divorce, but, in reality, isn’t why you enlist a divorce law firm? So, they can handle the legal aspects. Surely, a couple of meetings with a divorce attorney could have settled Khloe’s divorce a long time ago.
TMZ reports that if Khloe doesn’t do something her divorce case will be dismissed by the end of April and she’ll remain married to Odom. Maybe she doesn’t really want to divorce Odom.
But if she does it is still possible though it can be complicated to settle a divorce without your spouse’s signature. With the right legal assistance, though, it can be a relatively painless process. Most courts will allow a divorce to proceed uncontested and settle issues of property division and child custody according to your original petitions.
Other couples don’t have the same issues as Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, and are absolutely certain they want a divorce.
