Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom Have Signed Divorce Papers, But Is It Really Happening This Time?

Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom have proved to be a couple that is more on-again, off-again than a faulty iPhone charger. One minute things seem to be improving, the next they're in shambles. But finally, Kardashian and Odom have have officially signed off on their divorce, and now all they need to make it absolutely done is a judge's signature, according to TMZ.

The duo have come a long way since their first encounter seven years ago. According to People, Kardashian and Odom met in 2009 at a birthday party for the basketball player's Los Angeles Lakers teammate Ron Artest and were married a month later. Then, four years later in 2013, Kardashian filed for divorce due to "irreconcilable differences," and rumors of infidelity and Odom's reported drug issues were hinted at on Keeping Up with the Kardashians . After that filing, though, the divorce proceedings were slow-going, with Kardashian going back and forth about trying to make the relationship work out. Then, in 2015, Odom overdosed and almost died, and Kardashian rushed to his side, calling off the divorce for the time being. But Kardashian quickly informed everyone, via an interview with People, that she and Odom weren't going to get back together right away, saying that “there are too many other important things, too many medical things. It’s not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now."

Clearly, Kardashian felt strongly about being a "support system" for Odom but nothing more. And yet, still, many of us had hope — even when Kardashian re-filed for divorce in May 2016. Now, those hopes are gone with the TMZ report that the former married couple have reached a property settlement and each has now signed legal docs that were filed Friday, Oct. 21. But never say never, right? The exes do still have to wait until a judge gives his signature, and according to California law, that signature can't happen until it's been six months since the initial filing date. So December is when the divorce will likely become official, and Odom and Kardashian will be over for good.
