Khloe wrote about how she's "at peace" with her decision to divorce husband Lamar Odom in a new essay.
Despite her ongoing divorce proceedings with her husband Lamar Odom being tangled up in the courts for nearly three years, Khloe Kardashian has explained that she’ll continue to support him in accordance with her wedding vows.
The 31 year old reality star wrote an essay for Lena Dunham’s newsletter ‘Lenny’ on Tuesday (May 17th) about her Christian faith. In it, she addressed the current situation regarding her divorce from NBA player Odom, the proceedings of which stalled in autumn 2015 when he was hospitalised.
“I've been blessed with a lot in my life, and I've also had challenges,” she wrote. “It was a challenge for me when I decided to get divorced.”
Khloe Kardashian doesn't believe in divorce at her "core".
The 31-year-old reality star split from husband Lamar Odom in December 2013, with divorce papers then signed by both parties in July 2015. However, a judge hadn't signed off on their documents, and when Lamar was hospitalised last October (15) after being found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel, Khloe was by his side as he recovered.
The pair has remained close, with many speculating that they could get back together. But in an essay on her connection with spirituality for Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter, Khloe insisted her relationship with Lamar has fundamentally changed.
"I've been blessed with a lot in my life, and I've also had challenges. It was a challenge for me when I decided to get divorced," she wrote. "At my core, I don't believe in divorce, but I came to a point in my marriage where I had to make the choice to take care of my own mental and emotional well-being in order to protect myself and my happiness."
