Few celebrity breakups were more heartbreaking and public than Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s drawn out split. Understandably, both stars took the divorce hard and let their broken hearts spill out into the tabloids and the Internet. But while it seems like Khloe has been moving on — and possibly dating other celebrities — it appears that Odom is having a harder time letting go of both Khloe and his wedding ring.
In an interview with “Access Hollywood,” Odom talked about his recent move to Spain to play basketball with the Spanish franchise Laboral Kutxa and explained that the Kardashians are still a big part of his life and his move.
“Bruce is … he means a lot to me. Bruce is one of the reasons why I am going to do this,” Odom said about his move.
“And of course my family,” he added. “They stood by me.”
While chatting with “Access Hollywood,” Odom was spotted wearing his gargantuan wedding ring, and he still referred to Khloe as his “wife.”
“I always speak to Khloe. She’s my wife,” Odom said, when asked if he still speaks with Khloe.
Odom explained that he also keeps in touch with Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner.
“I left Kris [Jenner] a message today. [I’m] always texting back and forth with Bruce. Hopefully, they’ll be able to come see me soon,” he said.
Well, it’s clear that the Kardashians are still the biggest support system in Odom’s life. It’s sad, though, that he and Khloe’s marriage couldn’t stand as a pivotal part of that support system. Check out some other stars who had trouble letting go of their exes after the cut. –nicholas robinson
