Lamar Odom is determined to win back Khloé Kardashian.
The reality TV star filed for divorce from the basketball player in December, following months of allegations of drug abuse and infidelity on his part.
Lamar is currently in New York City where he is undergoing physical therapy for a back injury which caused the end of his contract with Spanish team Saski Baskonia (also known as Laboral Kutxa). He has spoken of his hopes for the future, including his damaged marriage.
“I want to make it work with Khloé,” he told In Touch magazine.
“I’m going to see Khloé. I’m going to see her soon.”
The sportsman explained his focus at the moment is recovering from his injury.
Lamar, 34, and his 29-year-old estranged wife have reportedly been in touch of late. It’s claimed Khloé is considering giving him another chance, even though those around her are worried about the plan.
“He confessed his feelings and cried his heart out to her on the phone,” a source explained. “She’d been avoiding his texts and calls for weeks, but when she heard him pleading with her to take him back, she melted.”
The conversation is said to have taken place earlier this month.
The news comes after Khloé posted a cryptic message on her Instagram page, which some thought could be a reference to Lamar as it was shortly after his injury was announced.
“I declare that I will live as a healer,” it read. “I will lift the fallen, restore the broken and encourage the discouraged. I am full of compassion and kindness. I won’t just look for a miracle; I will become someone’s miracle.”
On Tuesday, Khloé told an Australian TV show that she was far from being over her divorce and was still trying to come to terms with all she’d been through.
The reality TV star married Lamar in 2009, a month after they met.
