Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian call off divorce amid recovery

Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are getting back together — or at least they’re not continuing to stay apart.

The Associated Press reports that the couple has decided to stay married while the former NBA star continues his recovery a week after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

Kardashian’s lawyer, Laura Wasser, filed a petition Wednesday to dismiss the reality star’s divorce filing from December 2013. A clerk granted the request, which apparently allows for papers to be filed again at a later date.

The document doesn’t state a reason for the change, but it shows Odom signed off on dismissing the divorce Tuesday.

Kardashian has been by Odom’s side since he was found in critical condition Oct. 13 at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, and hospitalized in Las Vegas. He regained consciousness Friday and was taken to Los Angeles on Monday.

Kardashian posted a statement to her website Tuesday saying Odom made “incredible strides” at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center and thanking its doctors and nurses.

Odom’s prognosis has not been released, but the family has hinted at a long road ahead, saying they realize his “continued improvement” won’t be easy.

The brothel said workers saw him drink alcohol and take supplements sold as “herbal Viagra.”

Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof has said that Odom arrived Oct. 10 for a four-day stay and spent $75,000 on women who accompanied him in a VIP suite.

Meanwhile, the New York Post’s Page Six reports that Kardashian has a new self-help book coming out on Nov. 3. “Strong Looks Better Naked,” published by Regan Arts, is about how she mended her broken heart by working out and losing weight.
