It’s all over for Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom. The former couple both finally signed their divorce papers this week, nearly two years after they first separated. "Such a crazy day!! Very emotional!" Khloé, 31, tweeted on Tuesday evening, thanking her fans for all their support.
Khloé first filed for divorce back in December 2013 but proceedings were stalled because Lamar would not sign the papers. Then in April this year, a judge threatened to dismiss their petition unless Khloé requested a default judgement and refiled, or got Lamar's signature.

Now all that remains is for a judge to sign off the paperwork, and their divorce could be finalised within a matter of days.
Khloé and 35-year-old Lamar’s whirlwind romance began at a LA Lakers party, and they married in a televised wedding ceremony in September 2009 – just one month after meeting. The Odoms were happy for a few years, before their high-profile marriage was hit by allegations of his infidelity and substance abuse problems. Eventually, Khloé called time on the relationship in December 2013.
The reality star has been open about the heartache she endured over the split. As recently as April, she spoke candidly about her ex. "I will never, ever not love Lamar," she told E! News. "I was obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband and I still wish he was, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that."
She added: "There's nothing I can do. Lamar has to do things in order to change that aspect, but yeah, if I have my way I'd be married to Lamar in two seconds."
Since then, Khloé has started a new romance with another basketball player, James Harden. But that hasn't changed her estranged husband's feelings for her. "It's no secret Lamar regrets a lot of things," a friend told People last month. "He'd still love to be married to Khloé. And there’s a part of her that wished it worked out too."
