Breaking up is always hard to do, and in Khloe Kardashian's case, it may be not only hard, but a drawn-out, exhaustive process involving lawyers and unfiled divorce papers. Apparently, despite contradicting reports that seem to surface every 15 minutes, Khloe has actually been working on putting the formal kibosh on her troubled marriage, a source with "intimate knowledge of the situation" tells Radar Online.
“Within the last two weeks, Khloe instructed her lawyer to have divorce papers drawn up. All she needs to do is tell the lawyer to file the petition. She has even signed the divorce papers, in anticipation,” the source says. Whoa. So despite all the wishy-washy seeming vague Instagramming and tweeting, maybe Khloe really does mean business?
I can't help but be heartened by the idea that this could be true. Because, as sad as it is that her marriage may be thisclose to an end, it also shows she's doing what she needs to do to protect herself legally. And emotionally, she's proving she's no doormat who is going to stand idly by while her husband cheats and refuses to get help for his alleged drug addiction.
Given some of the reports out there about Lamar's behavior, it's a wonder she hasn't filed the petition yet. But the source says Khloe's holding off, because she's not ready to "pull the trigger." However, "she feels she has no other options at this point because Lamar is unwilling to go to rehab. ... There is hope that if Khloe does file, Lamar will realize he must get help.”
Oh man, I really hope she doesn't plan to file as a threat? When she does it, it has to be for real, not as a final attempt to push Lamar into rehab. She owes it to herself to put her foot down for real, once and for all, and walk away from what continues to look like a more and more toxic situation.
Do you think/hope if Khloe files for divorce, she'll actually go through with it?
