The world is abuzz over a comment that Khloe Kardashian made to People magazine concerning her relationship with Lamar Odom. When Khloe and Lamar called off their divorce after his oversdose and subsequent hospitalization, there was a Pollyanna sort of feeling that washed over a lot of us. We were pulling for everything to be okay, we wanted the rom-com movie ending where love conquers all and everyone lives happily ever after. Lamar would fully recover as a new man who would never do another drug and would be a faithful husband to Khloe. They’d get back together and move into one of those big fancy California houses and Khloe would finally get pregnant and have the baby she always wanted. It was a beautiful picture.
But today we had some sense knocked into us with a dose of reality from Khloe. Here is what she said to People:
“The fact that he woke up was definitely a sigh of relief for everybody, Every hour is different. It goes up and it goes down but he’s awake. He’s alive and that’s all I wanted, was for him to be okay. There is a very long road ahead of [Lamar], she He has to walk that road by himself, and, most importantly, he has to want to walk that road. I will be there supporting him every step of the way.”
So far so good. But in the hard copy of the magazine on stands today, Khloe said she was still with James Harden.
“ James has been great with me and I’m just allowing everything to unfold. If it’s ever too overwhelming, [for him] then I understand that as well. I pulled back on the divorce because there is no rush for it. For medical decisions and a ton of other things, it’s just smarter that it’s put on hold. But that doesn’t mean I’m back with Lamar. It’s not even in our brains to think about us having a relationship.”
And the crowd went wild. And not in a good way. Her twitter is blowing up with people who are apparently mad at her for doing the interview with People at all and not promising to be with Lamar forever in general. In fact, she seems to be saying just the opposite!
Khloe was pissed and quickly set the record straight on Twitter, “Shame on you all for thinking the worst of me. It’s been a tough few weeks. I don’t need your fucked up energy! Know the facts before you throw stones. I had to do a follow up 5 minute phoner after the events only because I was contracted to. I cancelled my book tour to avoid this attention.”
Khloe’s book, Strong Looks Better Naked , a fitness book about how she lost 35 pounds and her struggles with weight comes out on November, 3.
So, what do you think about Khloe still dating James? Are you devastated? Or is it the best thing for her?
