Los Angeles, CA-Lamar Odom is starting a new chapter in his life and is moving back to New York after inking a deal with the Knicks. But he has yet to close the book on his marriage to Khloe Kardashian even though the couple split in December. Now almost five months later he’s ready to sign the divorce papers.
“Lamar finally gets it, his [four-year] marriage to Khloe is over,” a source told Radar Online.
Odom told the source he was going to sign divorce papers within in the next several weeks
The source also said, “There was a time when Lamar said he would never give up on getting back together with Khloe, but he recognizes she has obviously moved on. He will tell his attorney to submit a response to Khloe’s divorce petition. It isn’t expected to be a long drawn out divorce, since there is an iron clad prenup in place.”
Seems like reality has finally set in for the pro-baller, and now that Khloe has been dating other men—she’s recently been spotted cozying up to rapper French Montana.
“Khloe is out in public with new guys all over them and it is killing Lamar,” the source said. “Yeah, he was totally with other women [first], but he doesn’t want Khloe to shove it in his face that she is moving on. Lamar is jealous and gets mad when she refuses to talk to him.”
That’s a bit hypocritical of Lamar especially for a man who destroyed his own marriage by cheating with multiple women.
If the cheating wasn’t bad enough, Lamar started smoking crack, got busted for driving under the influence and became a general embarrassment. The final straw for Khloe was a rap video Lamar made in which he supposedly says, “And when Khloe’s out of town / I still be on the DL.” He allegedly talks about using drugs, money and cheating, and appears to be in the stupor of a drug haze.
Khloe asked him repeatedly to go to rehab, a move that might have saved his marriage, but he refused. Guess the drugs were more important at the time, but he’s clean and sober these days and just signed a sweet deal with the New York Knicks. He’ll hit the court next season. With his basketball career back on track, he needs to tie other lose ends which means it’s time to put the divorce behind him.
Even when Lamar signs the divorce papers, there won’t be a long-drawn out battle since the couple signed a prenuptial agreement which kept their money separate. He is worth significantly more than Khloe but there is no indication either Khloe or Lamar will contest the pre-nuptial. The couple allegedly had a divorce attorney add an infidelity clause to the agreement which mean if Khloe wanted to getter a better settlement she might be able to as long as she can prove Lamar cheated on her.
