Lamar Odom is staying in a private home in Calabasas receiving outpatient rehab treatment, having checked out of the hospital on January 8 in significantly improved health. Rumor has it James Harden is now pushing Khloe Kardashian to proceed with divorcing Lamar Odom now that he is in better condition.

Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom this past summer, but just a couple of days after he nearly died from an accidental overdose at a Nevada brothel, she withdrew the divorce petition, even though she had no intention of reconciling with Lamar.

James Harden and Khloe Kardashian were an item long before Lamar overdosed. In fact, Harden was likely the reason Khloe finally filed for divorce from Lamar Odom. Now James Harden allegedly wants Khloe to file for divorce again.

“James has been pressuring Khloé to put the divorce back in motion,” a source tells Life & Style Weekly.

“He doesn’t like that Khloé is still married to Lamar. It’s awkward for him.”

“James recently stayed at Khloé’s when his team [the Houston Rockets] was in LA to play the LA Clippers and the Lakers. It was supposed to be a very happy time, but instead, he spent it complaining to Khloé about Lamar,” the source adds.

The home where Lamar Odom is doing his rehab is very close to Khloe Kardashian's home.

Khloe, however, is torn.

“She loves James,” the source says. “But she feels like she needs to give Lamar more time to recover before she makes a decision on the divorce.”

Will Khloe risk losing James Harden because she's not yet ready to file for divorce from Lamar Odom?

Is Harden at the point where he's thinking of issuing an ultimatum?
