Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom: the divorce is now officially OFF

She broke up with her boyfriend of six months, James Harden, last week in light of her estranged husband's collapse and hospitalisation.

Now Khloe Kardashian, 31, is officially throwing herself back into her marriage: she and Lamar Odom have gone to court to dissolve the divorce paperwork they filed in July.

TMZ reports that Ms Kardashian's lawyer Laura Wasser went before a judge this morning asking that the documentation they both signed to end their marriage be withdrawn. 

Ms Wasser had with her a written statement from Mr Odom, which he had penned from his hospital bed, writes the New York Daily News.

The court has now granted the request and their file has been thrown out. This all means, of course, that the couple (they married in September 2009) very much plan on remaining husband and wife.

"This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloé, and the most sensible thing to do at such a time is not make any big moves and put everything on hold," a source also told PEOPLE.

"So that’s what she is doing." 

The duo had split in December 2013 but conflicting emotions meant they never actually got around to signing official divorce papers until earlier this year. 

Khloe’s rapper ex French Montana, whom she dated last year, has called her vigil at her estranged husband's bedside "a beautiful thing."

"I feel like once somebody's going through a critical condition, I feel like people should step up to the plate to help because once upon a time they had a real relationship when they was married, they still married," he told the New York Daily News.

It is believed that 35-year-old Lamar's recovery and rehabilitation will now take months. And certainly, he's lucky to be alive – a fact that evidently has made both him and his wife reevaluate their love for one another.
