It’s hard to a imagine a marriage that has received more public attention than that of Khloe Kardashian and former professional basketball player Lamar Odom. Their relationship has had many ups and downs over the years, which the media have ceaselessly reported on. In fact, Ms. Kardashian had actually filed for divorce in 2013, only to change her mind when Mr. Odom suffered a drug overdose.
The couple stayed together, but the drama continued. Ms. Kardashian began a relationship with NBA player James Harden, and Mr. Odom had yet another overdose. But recently, this tempestuous seven-year union was brought to an end. But for all the theatrics generated by their marriage, the couple is having a relatively sedate divorce.
According to reports, the pair has agreed to follow the conditions of a prenuptial agreement they signed in 2009. Additionally, they will be dissolving Khlomar, their jointly-held company. Ms. Kardashian will have the name Odom removed from her legal name. And neither party will be making claims for spousal support.
A source revealed that the two are still on friendly terms, but that the divorce marks a change in the course of both of their lives.
When taken as a whole, it’s easy to see how this famous couple’s divorce could have been a far more complex affair. Not only do both parties likely have a great deal of wealth, but they even had a shared business venture. Thus, they are extremely fortunate to have parted ways without protracted negotiations.
If you are in a high-value divorce situation, even one that is playing out amicably, it is imperative to have an experienced legal advocate on your side. A knowledgeable family law attorney can help you assess your marital assets and act on your behalf in an effort to ensure a fair settlement.
