It's Official: Khloe Kardashian Files for Divorce From Lamar Odom

This Just In 21

Khloe KardashianSad news today for Khloe Kardashian. Or maybe it's good news. Depends on how you look at it. TMZ reports that Khloe has filed for divorce from her husband of four years, Lamar Odom. TMZ had reported earlier that today was the day (say what you like but TMZ seems to have a lot of sources in their backpockets) and it appears they were right.

The documents were filed by Khloe's famous lawyer, Laura Wasser, who also represented many celebrities, including Heidi Klum and Ashton Kutcher and even sister Kim, in their divorce petitions. Khloe cited "irreconcilable differences."

Khloe is not asking for any spousal support from Lamar, and she is asking the judge to block any requests for spousal support for him. The two reportedly had an iron-clad pre-nup which means neither one will owe the other one anything. Certainly Khloe has the financial leg up on Lamar, but I hope he does the right thing and walks away.

She has also asked Odom legally be removed from her last name.

The last straw for Khloe was reportedly when Lamar rapped with his friend Jamie about cheating on Khloe. That was so stupid and disrespectful that it's almost like was begging Khloe to file.

No one gets married thinking they will get divorced, so no matter what the other party has done, or how much he or she has hurt you, it's always devastating. Even when you are the one to file -- in fact, the other party may not be as devastated and just willing to drag things along eternally, since he or she is the one wreaking all of the havoc.

It's sad that this comes so close to Christmas, but considering they wouldn't have spent it together anyway, might as well get it over with.

Khloe must have finally realized that you can't rescue anyone who doesn't want to be rescued. People have to help themselves. And if they are unwilling to do that, then you have to do a cost-benefit analysis on your marriage, and your emotional, financial, and spiritual health.

Obviously, Khloe has decided that it wasn't worth it. I have no doubt she did everything she could not to get to this point.

Some people will say you stick with a marriage no matter what, but it takes two to be in a marriage. When one abandons it, it's just masochistic to stay in it yourself.

Perhaps Khloe's fertility issues were the universe's way of letting her know this wasn't the marriage for her. I wish her the best and have no doubt better things are coming.

Are you glad it's finally over?

I saw It coming when they announced they were getting Married . He didn't treat his first lady well at all, and she probably just stuck around since he made the money . You can certainly tell right off the bat whatever her problems were with him more than likely get transfered to you. I bet his ex is singing I told you so in her head.

Unfortunately, I never saw them lasting. Maybe thats because most reality tv couples or celebrity couples dont, but there was something else that just said no, they wont last. Its too bad he turned out to be such a total loser, but if they had dated more than 2 weeks maybe shed found that out too before they married. Im sure shes happy they didnt have kids to drag thru this too. I do like her, I hope she finds someone else, whose actually nice to her

I am glad its finally over.  Lamar hopefully cleans up his act in time and Khloe should explore why she was so desperate to marry a man she hardly knew in the first place.  Its a time of growth for both of them.  Like anyone else, good luck.  Shit happens.
