Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom Are Reportedly Still Married Even Though Divorce Papers Were Filed
After it was announced on Tuesday evening that Lamar Odom was hospitalized after being found unconscious, more shocking news has come forward. An E! News report claims that Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom are still legally married. As you might recall, they signed their divorce papers in July 2015, but E! claims a judge has not signed the paperwork, which would make their divorce officially official. If true, this means the two are still technically married. Bustle has reached out to Kardashian and Odom's reps for comment, but has yet to hear back.
The paperwork's delay is due to a "file backlog," according to the courthouse where the papers were filed, claims E! News. Reportedly, the courthouse is just getting to the divorces filed in June. So, what does this mean for Kardashian and Odom's divorce? Well, the courthouse reportedly estimates their divorce will be finalized sometime later this year. See? I told you this all was quite surprising.
Odom is currently in a Las Vegas hospital after being found unconscious on Tuesday afternoon. According to reports by E!, TMZ, and People, drugs were allegedly found in his system. Kardashian is reportedly by Odom's side through what is most definitely a difficult time for the former couple. This just proves that despite all of their struggles, Kardashian will be there for her ex through even the hardest of times.
Even Kris Jenner visited Odom, in addition to Kim Kardashian showing up. There's no doubt family is important to the Kardashians and they will be there to support one another during any and all situations.
