Khloe Kardashian files for divorce from husband Lamar Odom
Just days after Lamar Odom was sentenced to three year’s probation for DUI charges, his wife Khloe Kardashian has filed for divorce.
According to TMZ, the ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ star cited irreconcilable difference when she filed on Friday December 13 – with the website reporting that the couple had signed a prenuptial agreement.
The news doesn’t come as much of a surprise, with talk of the couple’s rocky relationship circulating for months following reports that the NBA star was battling drug problems.
The most recent Kardashian Christmas card also fuelled speculation, as Lamar was noticeably absent from the annual family holiday photo release.
E! News reports that Odom is “deeply saddened” by the divorce, with a source telling the website: “He knew it was coming and it was only a matter of time. He felt like he gave his all to try and save the marriage but ultimately he wasn’t able to.”
The pair had reportedly been living apart for a few months while also going to counselling.
It was as recently as June this year that Khloe spoke to MTV News of her love for her husband.
“I met him on August 27 and I married him on September 27, so it was 30 days. That's the first time I ever met him, so I completely understand everyone's criticism,” she said.
“If I wasn't me, I would have been judging too. I would have been like ‘You're crazy and you're insane and you don't even know this person.’ But I just felt something. We both did and I went with it and it's fun. I love our story too. I'm not sure I would recommend it for everyone, but I love that I could say this is our story.”
