Khloe KardashianLamar Odom has had some difficulty letting his soon-to-be-ex-wife Khloe Kardashian go. The reality star filed for divorce last December from the basketball player, but it's taken this long for Odom to accept the reality that his four-year marriage is really over.

A source close to the Kardashians claims that he's finally going to formally submit a response to Khloe's petition for divorce "in the next several weeks. “Lamar finally gets it, his marriage to Khloé is over,” the source told RadarOnline.com.

They also said, “There was a time when Lamar said he would never give up on getting back together with Khloe, but he recognizes she has obviously moved on. He will tell his attorney to submit a response to Khloe’s divorce petition. It isn’t expected to be a long drawn out divorce, since there is an iron clad prenup in place."

Lamar has apparently not been happy to see Khloe out partying with other guys, including her frequent outings with rapper French Montana. Reports say he's been "blowing up her phone" with "desperate calls," but Khloe's been refusing to answer.

“Khloe is out in public with new guys all over them and it is killing Lamar,” the snitch said. “Yeah, he was totally with other women [first], but he doesn’t want Khloe to shove it in his face that she is moving on. Lamar is jealous and gets mad when she refuses to talk to him.”

Wowza, talk about your double standards. It was OK for Lamar to cheat during the marriage because he couldn't help it (his admission), but now that they're officially separated, he's upset she's moving on? Sorry dude, it doesn't work that way.

Khloe gave Lamar more than enough chances during the marriage to figure his crap out and deal with his issues with drugs and women. I'm glad that it seems he's finally wised up to the fact that his marriage is really over instead of holding onto it with an iron fist of undeserved self-righteousness.

Are you surprised it took this long for Lamar Odom to let it go?
