Reality television star Khloe Kardashian made it clear last month that she and Lamar Odom are not back together, despite rumors and hints that may look as if they have rekindled their old relationship. Now, Kardashian spoke about why she chooses to remain friends with her exes.
In her blog, she penned, “I want to feel like I can text a guy I’ve dated in the past to see how he’s doing without it being weird,” reported Entertainment Online.
However, this does not mean that one can immediately resume the friendship after the pain, she admitted. She highlighted how a person needs to pause to process the situation. The reality television star also explained why it is important for her to keep the communication open for those who had been a significant part of her life.
She added, “If it’s a relationship that served a purpose in my life, like Lamar, why wouldn’t I want them in my life afterwards? Just because you break up with someone doesn’t mean you lose that connection.”
As for Odom, even though it will still take some time for him to recover and get back to his old routines, his former wife has been his inspiration, revealed an insider to Hollywood Life.
Odom is currently practicing basketball and doing training with the hope to return and play in the NBA again, but the motivation and path he had to endure in being fit again is somewhat parallel to his road to fully winning back Kardashian.
The source continued, “Just like returning to the NBA may be a pipe dream, so is a reconciliation with Khloe, but both are dreams of his and keep him dedicated to work hard. If he can achieve either dream, NBA or get back with Khloe, it would be the ultimate comeback.”
Kardashian and Odom were on track to their divorce, but the former called it off when the latter was found unconscious in a brothel in Nevada last October due to drug overdose.
