LOS ANGELES – According to multiple reports, Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have called off their divorce while he continues to get better at a Los Angeles hospital.
Khloe’s lawyer appeared in court Wednesday morning, according to TMZ. She asked that the divorce papers that Khloe and Lamar signed be dismissed.
Khloe had filed for divorce in December 2013, but waited to sign for over a year while attempting to get Lamar into rehab. She ended up filing the papers this summer.
Khloe and Lamar both signed the paper to dismiss the divorce on Wednesday. Lamar signed from the hospital.
Little is known about what left Odom unresponsive at the brothel. Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof recently said Odom was “in a good frame of mind” when he was taken to the brothel, and that he ate and slept well there.
“He picked a couple of girls, and he had the time of his life,” Hof said.
In three days at the brothel, Odom spent $75,000, which guaranteed two women would “take care of any of his needs,” Hof told CNN’s sister network HLN.
Employees told 911 dispatchers that Odom used cocaine on Saturday — his first day at the brothel — though Hof said Saturday that any drug use happened when Odom was partying early that morning in Las Vegas but before he’d arrived at the Love Ranch.
“I’m going to protect my business, and I’m not going to let the world say that Lamar was doing a lot of drugs in my place,” he told CNN’s Michael Smerconish, saying his brothel has “zero tolerance” for illicit drugs. “Because it makes him look bad, and he wasn’t doing that.”
A woman said she also saw Odom take 10 herbal supplement tablets over three days.
The brothel’s employees said when they found him, Odom was lying in bed on his side with a pinkish fluid coming from his mouth and nose.
‘More hopeful now’
Harrick said Monday that he’d been in touch every day with Kardashian, who had rushed to Odom’s bedside.
The former NBA star is breathing on his own, Harrick said.
“We’re more hopeful now” that Odom will recover, Harrick said. “We’ve been on pins and needles for days.”
Odom and Kardashian got married in 2009 and filed for divorce four years later, citing irreconcilable differences.
In addition to appearing on “Keeping Up With the Kardashians,” the couple had their own reality show, “Khloe & Lamar.” It lasted for two seasons and 20 episodes.
The two signed divorce papers this year, but the divorce has not been finalized, a source told CNN.
Trouble off the court
Odom won two NBA championships as a forward for the Los Angeles Lakers.
He played for four teams during his 14 seasons in the NBA and won the Sixth Man of the Year Award during the 2010-11 season.
Two years ago, he made headlines off the court when he was charged with drunk driving. He pleaded no contest and received three years’ probation.
Harrick, who coached Odom in college, said he believes the episode at the brothel is a “turning point” for Odom.
The athlete has a strong support system, Harrick said, and “prayers from everybody.”
