Since wife Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce 10 months ago, Lamar Odom has still refused to sign the divorce papers. Odom is reportedly still hoping to reconcile with his reality TV star wife, but Kardashian is afraid to return to his infidelity and drug use.
“He refuses to sign the divorce papers,” a family source told the Boston Herald about Odom. Another source close to Odom told the publication that the former basketball star was still hoping for a reconciliation with Kardashian. The family source said that Kardashian feels she has no closure without a divorce from Odom, but also can’t completely let go. “She still loves Lamar. It’s a sad situation," the source said.

Odom has reportedly been dodging Kardashian so he could avoid signing papers. Kardashian has legal options available to her, though, since it has been weeks since she has seen Odom. According to papers filed on October 9 by a Los Angeles Superior Court Family judge, she can either file a Request For Dismissal or file a Request To Enter Default.
While a Request For Dismissal entails calling the divorce off, a Request To Enter Default is filed if a spouse hasn’t responded in 30 days or can’t be found. If Kardashian is granted a default, she can go through divorce proceedings without the participation of Odom. Divorce proceedings may take place even if one of the parties doesn’t show up, as long as there are no properties or children between the two parties.
Kardashian’s new show, Kourtney & Khloe Take The Hamptons begins on November 2, Sunday. The question of whether Odom will be featured on the show looms. A source close to the show said Odom won’t be on the show.
“He has not even been filmed so he’s not in any scenes, but there is one mention of Lamar in the season,” said the source to HollywoodLife.com. Unlike last season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, where Odom and Kardashian’s divorce was a central storyline, the new show won’t feature it in depth.
