Not So Fast: Khloé and Lamar's Postponed Divorce Doesn't Mean They're a Couple Again

"That's not in our thought process right now," the reality star said in a statement.

Ever since Lamar Odom's been hospitalized for his reported drug episode, his estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian, has been by his side. Soon after the NBA champ started making some progress, word surfaced the reality star called off their divorce, but that doesn't mean they're back to being "Khlomar" just yet.


"It's out in the media that we are back together, but I wish people understood that's not in our thought process right now," she told People in a statement. "There are too many 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."

Though their divorce is on hold, Khloé makes it clear there's no hanky panky in their relationship either — according to her, they have bigger fish to fry: "It's not anything sexual or intimate," she said. "I want to be his support system. Tragedy does make you reassess a lot of things, but when it comes to our relationship, it's the same, except I'm here supporting him fully."

Speaking specifically about the divorce, Khloé said, "There is no rush. I'm not trying to get married tomorrow to anybody," she said. "It's just bad timing to proceed with that right now. And also for medical reasons, it's just smarter that gets on hold for a minute. But that does not mean I'm back with Lamar."
