Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian will soon be officially divorced. After proceedings halted--because Lamar Odom wouldn't sign the papers--rumors swirled about a reconciliation between the former NBA player and the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star.

A judge insisted back in April that the divorce petition would be dismissed if Khloe Kardashian didn't request a default judgement or convince Lamar Odom to sign the papers

People magazine reported earlier on Tuesday that both Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have now signed the divorce papers, and once a judge signs them, too, their divorce will be final.

A recent teaser for the upcoming season of Keeping Up With the Kardashians hinted at Khloe and Lamar getting back together. Khloe, however, has been dating James Harden, an NBA shooting guard for the Houston Rockets.

Lamar Odom has gone through a very difficult time recently with the sudden, drug-related deaths of two of his close friends. Jamie Sangouthai and Bobby Heyward died within a week of one another back in June.

Hopefully finalizing his divorce won't send Lamar Odom spiraling. In light of all he's been through, he is no doubt struggling with his tendency toward substance abuse. Both Khloe Kardashian and her mom Kris Jenner reached out to him following the loss of his friends.

Are you surprised to learn that Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom will soon be officially divorced? Are you among those who expected the two might find their way back to one another?
