Playing Khloe Kardashian: Meeting James Harden Pushed Me to Expedite Lamar Odom Divorce

When Khloe Kardashian postponed her divorce from Lamar Odom, it wasn't an end to things between her and James Harden.

The reality star appeared on L.A.'s 102.7 KIIS FM radio show, On Air With Ryan Seacrest, on Monday, where she explained that meeting James is why she first tried to expedite her divorce with the ailing NBA star.

"When I met James," she said, "I just felt like I needed to finish with the divorce, and I expedited it."

However, Lamar's hospitalization after he was found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel led Khloe to rethink that decision.

"I just thought it was really insensitive to [expedite the divorce]," she said. "I get it, I get why it's confusing, I understand all of that. James has been great. He's been very supportive with everything."

"There's of course times where I'm sure he was really uncomfortable about some of the things," she admitted. "But I'm a very honest person and I have nothing to hide and I was very open with how I feel like I had to handle everything with Lamar. I really, really appreciate how supportive James has been, and it wasn't just another layer of stress on me."

As of right now, Lamar's recovery is slowly but surely under way.

"All of his organs are pretty much recovered," she said. "It's more his brain that is affected."

Even so, the reality star said she plans to be in contact with Lamar throughout his entire recovery process, which she cautioned could take "a year, at least."

"I love Lamar, and this was always a fear of mine that we'd get to this place," Khloe admitted. "So, I don't see how I couldn't be involved."

Meanwhile, Khloe said on Monday's The Ellen DeGeneres Show that her ability to deal with the Lamar situation is completely tied to the balance in her life that she's found to this point.

"If [Lamar's hospitalization] would have happened, I think, two years ago, I don't know if I would have been strong enough to even have the tools to deal with what I'm dealing with now or be able to balance everything," she said. "So it's just really ironic that I'm promoting this book, but I'm actually like living what I wrote about."
