File this one under things we saw coming. Khloe Kardasian’s divorce lawyer Laura Wasser was in an L.A. courtroom this morning petitioning the court to withdraw the motion to file divorce from Lamar Odom. Reports indicate both Khloe and Lamar signed the document. This indicates that someone believes that Lamar is competent to sign legal documents, right?
The court granted the request and the filing has been removed from the backlog and dismissed. This means that in the future should they choose to divorce again, they will have to begin the entire process over.
I believe the main reason this is being done is so that Khloe can continue to be considered next of kin and have access to all of Lamar’s medical records and participate in his health care decisions. For that reason, I suppose it was the right thing to do.
Lamar’s aunt has given a statement to the media claiming he has walked a few steps, “”As Lamar begins a new chapter in his road to recovery, PLEASE continue to uplift him and the family in prayer. He continues to make miraculous progress, taking a few steps in Los Angeles. We couldn’t be more overjoyed! We realize Lamar’s continued improvement will not be easy, however his unrelenting strength and faith in GOD will pull him through.”
Forgive me if I am a bit skeptical of the statements by family members who come out of the woodwork in times like this after the conflicting stories from Bobbi Kristina’s relatives. Some reports indicate that Lamar has said “I love you!” to Khloe while others report is speech is severely impaired.
It looks like Khloe is going to put her entire life on hold for this long journey with Lamar. I hope for a happy ending. I hope that Lamar is able to conquer his demons. I hope that Khloe is able to protect herself in the process. Once Lamar is able to be released from the hospital, he will likely go right into a long term drug facility. It’s going to be a long hard road not just for Lamar but for Khloe as well. I hope she gets some sort of professional support as well.
