Their impending divorce has already dragged on for far too long as it is, which is why it really doesn't make any sense for Khloe Kardashian to talk to Lamar Odom on her birthday.
According to Hollywood Life, she definitely plans on answering the phone if he calls her to wish her well when she turns 30 on June 27th -- and you aren't going to believe her reasoning.
A source claims, "It's her birthday, and the last thing she wants to do is be mean or hateful. If Lamar calls or sends something, that's great. If not, that’s great too. She wants him to be well and live a good life but understand that he must respect her and her family's boundaries."
Huh. Am I the only one who is a bit puzzled by this?
Khloe has been making every effort to move on with her life since she filed for divorce from Lamar, and he's done nothing but make things more difficult for her by refusing to sign the divorce papers. How can he expect her to be all friendly and civil when he refuses to give her the one thing she needs to be truly happy?
Call me crazy, but it almost sounds like she's hoping Lamar will call her, if what this source says is true. But if Khloe does pick up the phone and agree to let him wish her a happy birthday, she's only going to wind up hurting herself even more -- which is the last thing she needs on one of the biggest celebration days of her life.
If anything, turning 30 should mark the start of a new chapter instead of dredging up the past and reminding her of how crappy her 29th year was.
I know she means well and all, but she's really going to regret giving in even the tiniest bit. Lamar strikes me as the type who takes a mile once you offer an inch, so Khloe is really playing with fire by letting him back into her world ... even if it's only for a few moments. Supposedly he's been holding off on moving forward with the divorce in the hopes that Khloe will reconsider, and she'll only give him more reason to believe a reconciliation is possible by allowing him to have contact with her again.
Do you think Lamar calling Khloe will do more harm than good?
