Lamar Odom is ready to sign his divorce papers.
The basketball star's wife, Khloe Kardashian, filed court documents to legally dissolve their four-year marriage in December, following months of rumors he was addicted to cocaine and cheated on her multiple times, and he has finally realized he won't be able to win her back.
"Lamar finally gets it, his marriage to Khloe is over," a source said.
The 34-year-old athlete is expected to formally submit a response to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star's divorce petition in the next few weeks, after hearing she "adores" her new beau, French Montana. "There was a time when Lamar said he would never give up on getting back together with Khloe, but he recognizes she has obviously moved on. He will tell his attorney to submit a response to Khloe's divorce petition. It isn't expected to be a long drawn out divorce, since there is an iron clad prenup in place," the source said.
Gwyneth Paltrow reportedly wanted to keep her marriage breakdown secret.
The Iron Man 3 actress - who announced last month she and Chris Martin were separating after 10 years of marriage - was said to have been keen to allow people to believe they had no problems, but the Coldplay frontman felt it was "wrong" to pretend everything was fine.
"It was his idea to announce the split. They had drifted apart, and there was no chance they'd get back together, so he felt it was wrong to keep pretending," a source told The New York Post.
The former couple - who have children Apple, nine, and Moses, eight, together - have been holidaying in the Bahamas since news of their separation was announced. They broke the news with a statement on Gwyneth's lifestyle website GOOP in a post titled "Conscious Uncoupling."
Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin had couples therapy before separating.
The couple - who are currently holidaying in the Bahamas with children Apple, nine, and Moses, seven - announced yesterday they were splitting, and friends say they brought in outside help to try and repair the cracks in their 11-year marriage.
"They really tried to make the marriage work, but sometimes it's best to not be married. They know that about each other now. They have worked really hard for a year or more, going to therapy, trying to make it work - and she's been more honest than ever about how hard marriage is - but they just decided it was best to not be together anymore as a couple," a source said.
Despite the news, the Iron Man star was seen out publicly with the Coldplay frontman several times earlier this year and they even sang together at a recent charity event in aid of their children's Los Angeles school, performing "Cruisin," her song with Huey Lewis in 2000 movie Duets. "She called the event chair to say she'd like to sing with Chris," a source said.
Another Hollywood couple has called it quits.
Gwyneth Paltrow took to lifestyle website GOOP to announce that she and her husband Chris Martin, who fronts British band Coldplay, have called time on their marriage of ten years:
"It is with hearts full of sadness that we have decided to separate. We have been working hard for well over a year, some of it together, some of it separated, to see what might have been possible between us, and we have come to the conclusion that while we love each other very much we will remain separate. We are, however, and always will be a family, and in many ways we are closer than we have ever been. We are parents first and foremost, to two incredibly wonderful children and we ask for their and our space and privacy to be respected at this difficult time. We have always conducted our relationship privately, and we hope that as we consciously uncouple and coparent, we will be able to continue in the same manner."
Paula Patton is still considering her future with Robin Thicke.
The Baggage Claim actress split from the "Blurred Lines" singer last month, and though she was reportedly having second thoughts about filing for divorce, insiders say she has yet to decide whether to give her spouse of eight years - with who she has three-year-old son Julian - another chance.
According to gossip website TMZ, Paula is "spending a lot of time thinking" about her marriage, but is yet to feel convinced by Robin's efforts to prove he can be a good husband.
It was recently claimed the 38-year-old actress had told Robin, 36, to stop trying to win her back with gifts. "She's insulted that he thinks he can win her back with pricey gifts. He knows what it's going to take, and it's nothing he can buy with money," a source said.
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have been talking constantly.
The reality star filed for divorce from her husband of four years in December following allegations of the basketball player's infidelity and drug abuse, but sources claim the pair haven't given up hope on their marriage just yet. "They're talking all the time. It's not over yet," an insider said.
The 29-year-old brunette has just moved into Justin Bieber's former Calabasas, California, mansion - which cost her a cool $7.2 million - and is said to be building an inside basketball court in her new home, which Lamar hopes could be a sign of a potential reconciliation. "Her installing a basketball court really says something. He thinks he could get Khloe back," another source added.
The 34-year-old sports star is currently back in the US after quitting Spanish basketball team Laboral Kutxa due to an injury.
Lamar Odom is determined to win back Khloe Kardashian.
The 34-year-old basketball player has opened up about his failed marriage to the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star and admits he isn't ready to give up on their relationship, despite her having filed for divorce over three months ago.
"I want to make it work with Khloe. I'm going to see see Khloe. I'm going to see her soon," he told InTouch.
The couple - who were married in 2009 - split list year after a number of women claimed to have had relationships with Lamar at the same time as he was also facing allegations of drug abuse, but after spending a short period of time playing basketball in Spain, he's now back in the US after suffering a back injury and is dedicated to cleaning up his act and winning back his wife. "I'm focusing on getting better," he added.
Khloe Kardashian is "not through" her marriage breakdown.
The 29-year-old star filed for divorce from Lamar Odom in December amid allegations he had cheated on her and used drugs, and she admits she finds it hard watching her reality show Keeping Up with the Kardashians at the moment because it is "really hard" to see her personal life laid bare.
Khloe's admission came on 2Day FM's Jules, Merrick and Sophie with Mel B show, when presenter Sophie Monk asked, "I watched all that stuff go down [on the show] and I cried, and you weren't even crying. Are you through that now? Do you feel better and is it all sorted?"
"It's definitely not anything I'm through. I'm going through it, but I'm not through it. It's really hard to watch yourself on TV too. It's definitely different in that the world has to watch too. It's definitely not the easiest thing to do but it's my life now I guess," Khloe replied.
Paula Patton is "open" to giving Robin Thicke another chance.
The Baggage Claim actress split from the "Blurred Lines" singer last month, and though she was reported to have insisted to him she wanted a divorce, insiders say she is now reconsidering her stance.
Sources told gossip website TMZ that the estranged couple - who have been married for eight years and have a three-year-old son, Julian, together - have been talking "constantly" and are now discussing what Robin needs to do to convince Paula they can make their marriage work. The 38-year-old actress is said to be particularly impressed with how much of a good dad Robin, 36, has continued to be since they separated, keeping in touch while on the road and seeing their little boy whenever he can.
According to the source, Paula hasn't yet hired a divorce lawyer and has no plans to do so. However, though their conversations have been "smooth and cordial," one thing the Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol star is unhappy with is Robin's public declarations of love for her.
Paula Patton felt "utterly disrespected" by Robin Thicke and Miley Cyrus' MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) performance.
The 38-year-old actress reportedly had a huge argument with the "Blurred Lines" singer following the show, saying the raunchy routine - which featured 21-year-old Miley twerking against her spouse - was insulting to her, particularly as it took place in front of a huge national TV audience. And according to TMZ, Paula was particularly "enraged" because Miley improvised the performance without warning, but her husband was happy to play along.
The couple - who announced their separation after eight years of marriage earlier this week - began arguing constantly after the ceremony in August, with the actress particularly furious with Robin's insistence on continuing to party at clubs and frequently being pictured with various women.
