Khloe Kardashian Trigger for Divorce ... She Wants Kids

5/27/2016 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0526-khloe-lamar-tmz-02Khloe Kardashian told Lamar Odom she needed to end their marriage once and for all ... because the clock is ticking and she wants kids ... sources connected to the former couple tell TMZ.

Our sources say Khloe sat Lamar down recently and explained she wanted a family, and couldn't even start the process of looking until she was single again.

We're told Khloe made it clear to Lamar from the time he almost died last year ... she was dropping the divorce because she wanted to help him get better. She vowed not to re-file until he was able to run his own life day-to-day, and she believes he's at that point right now.

Khloe has made it clear to friends and family ... there has never been a romantic relationship since she filed for divorce the first time around in December 2013

Lamar, we're told, completely understood, and the 2 vow to remain friends, and Khloe has promised she'll help him whenever he needs it.

Lamar Odom Huge Step In Recovery

12/20/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

1217-lamar-odom-tmz-04Lamar Odom made a huge stride in his recovery this week ... taking steps for the first time without assistance.

Sources close to Lamar tell us he hadn't been able to move without a walker. We're told Thursday Lamar ditched the walker and took three steps, shocking the docs.

Lamar has had limited range of motion in his hands, but during a recent visit from Khloe he was able to reach above his head to put his hood on ... a BIG step. 

And that's not all ... his brain function is slowly improving. He was able to recognize a hospital staff member, which is significant considering at one point he couldn't even recognize family.

We're told Lamar will soon be moved to a rehab facility.

Lamar Odom's Friend Died From Flesh-Eating Disease Caused by Drug Use

6/18/2015 6:06 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
Breaking News

0617-jamie-lamar-odom-tmz-instagramJamie Sangouthai --  Lamar Odom's best friend -- did not die from an OD, but it was drug related ... a flesh-eating disease caused by dirty needles. 

The exact terms are necrotizing fasciitis -- bacterial skin infection -- and chronic intravenous narcotism -- IV drug abuse ... according to the L.A. County Coroner. 

The Coroner says Sangouthai went to the hospital for the infected arm, but the disease spreads quickly and often becomes life-threatening.

Sangouthai -- who appeared with Lamar and Khloe Kardashian on their reality show -- died Sunday at a hospital in Los Angeles. He was 37 years old.

Lamar Odom Kardashians Worried Best Friend's OD Could Trigger Drug Binge

6/16/2015 12:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0615-lamar-odom-jamie-bestfriend-heroin-TMZ-INSTAGRAM-01Lamar Odom is taking the death of his best friend hard, and we're told the Kardashian family is worried it could push him back into the dark world of drugs.

We broke the story, Jamie Sangouthai -- who appeared on Lamar and Khloe's reality show -- died Sunday of an apparent OD. Jamie was with Lamar when the basketball star went on a crack binge 2 years ago, and it was common knowledge among their friends Jamie was fueling Lamar's addiction.

Friends of the Kardashians tell TMZ, the family -- and especially Khloe -- are hoping Lamar views Jamie's death as a wake up call so he'll swear off drugs forever. But our sources say the family knows the reality -- that Lamar has had trouble kicking his habit in the long term, and they think that Jamie's death could actually do significant damage to Lamar's psyche.

Khloe has taken no steps to move her divorce case forward with Lamar ... it's been dormant for more than a year, and the judge has threatened to dismiss the case outright. We're told they talk from time to time, although it's unclear if a reconciliation is in the cards.

Lamar Odom Best Friend Jamie Dies of Apparent Heroin OD

EXCLUSIVE

0614_lamar_odom_jamie-sangouthai_tmz_instagramLamar Odom's best friend, Jamie Sangouthai -- the man Khloe and others claimed fueled Lamar's disastrous crack binge 2 years ago -- has died, and we're told authorities believe it was a heroin OD.  

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ, Jamie died Sunday in a hospital in downtown L.A.  He was taken to the hospital after someone called 911.

Jamie was featured on Khloe and Lamar's reality show and they highlighted Jamie's problems on the program.

You may recall a crazy video of an obviously high Lamar and Jamie rapping about Khloe.

Khloe just tweeted, "When does it stop? RIP Jamie Sangouthai."

Jamie was 37 years old. 

Khloe and Lamar Not Ready for Divorce The Door's Open a Crack

4/27/2015 1:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0424-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are NOT ready to divorce ... in fact, they're secretly talking.

Sources connected to both Khloe and Lamar tell TMZ, the 2 of them are not romantic and are not talking reconciliation, but they don't want to close the door on the marriage either. That explains why Khloe's divorce has been laying dormant in the courts for more than a year ... the judge has even said if she doesn't s*** or get off the pot, he'll dismiss it.

Our Lamar sources says there's bad blood on both sides.  It's not as if he's begging her to reconcile ... he feels betrayed by Khloe as well. The Lamar sources say she's told him he has to make some sort of "grand gesture" before they can go the next step, and so far he's not willing to do it.

For her part, we're told she has "a big heart" and doesn't want to hurt him by sealing the deal on the divorce.  But it's more than just mercy ... we're told she still has feelings for him.

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-01As for the pic Khloe posted showing her "LO" tattoo on a gearshift ... we're told it's not a sign she's going back with Lamar ... she just digs her new Bentley.

Khloe Kardashian Flaunting Lamar Odom Tattoo ... With Love

4/22/2015 3:11 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0422-khloe-kardashian-lo-tattoo-instagram-02Another sign Khloe Kardashian isn't over Lamar Odom -- she Instagrammed a photo of her L.O. tattoo ... and punctuated it with a heart emoji in the caption.  

The pic shows Khloe gripping her Bentley shift knob ... and showcasing the tat she got for Odom right after they got married in 2009. 

Despite the fact they separated in 2013, Khloe has dragged her feet with the divorce -- and we're told she's still conflicted on whether she truly wants to end her marriage to the ex-NBA star. 

This picture seems to support the theory that there's still hope for a reconciliation. 

Stay tuned ...

Khloe Kardashian Divorce Case To Be Dismissed

4/10/2015 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

0410-khloe-lamar-tmz-01

Khloe Kardashian has been told to get off her ass in her divorce from Lamar Odom, or the case will be dismissed, and it looks like that's exactly what's about to happen.

A document was just filed by the court in Khloe's divorce, saying she has not gotten off the dime and unless she files paperwork to seal the deal in the divorce case or the whole case will be thrown out.

Khloe filed in December 2013 and Lamar never responded. She had a right to go to court and get a default divorce judgment, but she hasn't done it. In fact, sources connected to the Kardashian family tell us she just doesn't want to deal with the divorce and won't take any action.

It's become a problem, because our sources say the house Khloe and Lamar owned was sold more than a year ago for $5.5 million and the business people don't know what to do with the money because the divorce is in limbo.

So now the court has made it clear ... if Khloe doesn't file papers to make the divorce final, she will stay married to Lamar and the divorce case will be dismissed ... as early as the end of April.

Khloe Kardashian Tells the World ... I'm Still an Odom

4/10/2015 6:27 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0409-khloe-kardashian-odom-instagramKhloe Kardashian got a present from the Armenian people -- a certificate giving them a plot of land  -- and it's interesting that she's referred to as "Odom" yet she had no problem displaying it to the world. 

It appears the certificate was created by residents of a high-end housing community in the country, where Khloe and Kim are touring. It appears the residents gave the Kardashians a piece of earth.

The certificate refers to Kim as Kimberly Kardashian West and Khloe as Khloe Kardashian Odom.

As you know, Khloe filed for divorce a year-and-a-half ago. No big deal the certificate reads "Odom," but it got our attention that she posted a photo of the certificate on her Instagram and wrote, "Kourt and Rob we got you a souvenir!!!!!! Land in Armenia!!!"

She had to know she was referred to as Odom, and apparently she cared, because Khloe deleted the post.

Khloe's divorce has been stalled for months.  There's been no activity and no explanation.

Khloe Kardashian I Want Nothing to Do with Lamar, But ...

2/14/2015 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE

Khloe Kardashian Back With Lamar OdomKhloe Kardashian is NOT back with Lamar Odom ... she hasn't seen him or even spoken with him in months ... but she still will NOT get off the dime and make her divorce official.

Our Kardashian sources say stories that she's back with Lamar are bogus. She wants nothing to do with Lamar anymore and she's been steadfast about it.

That said ... there has been no activity in her divorce. As we reported, she filed in December, 2013, but we've reviewed the docket and nothing has been filed ... there's no movement. Sources tell us Khloe doesn't want to deal with it, but until there's a property settlement it will be hard to move on.

If she waits too long, the judge will have the power to throw the divorce petition out because of the lack of activity, but so far that hasn't happened.  

Khloe Kardashian I'd Still Divorce Lamar Odom ... If I Could Find Him

12/29/2014 12:50 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF
EXCLUSIVE
1228-khloe-kardashian-lamar-odom-tmz-01Khloe Kardashian isn't bailing on her divorce -- she fully intends to follow through one year after filing -- the problem is she can't schedule a sit down with Lamar Odom.

Sources close to the Kardashian's tell us Khloe has been unable to meet with her estranged husband to finalize terms of the divorce with their lawyers ... despite numerous attempts.

We're told the ex-basketball star isn't responding to calls from Khloe or her attorney -- and he's very rarely popped up in public. Certainly not long enough to make things official. Our camera guys spotted LO 3 weeks ago ... and he seemed more than fine leaving the divorce/marriage in limbo.

Remember, Lamar once said he wasn't convinced Khloe would see the divorce through.

However, KK definitely wants to cut the cord for good. We're told her best case scenario is meeting Lamar to settle up -- but worst case ... she will file a default judgment if he doesn't respond soon.
