Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have decided not to get divorced. The couple have gone to court in order to dismiss the paperwork, filed in July, which would have effectively ended their marriage. Kardashian's lawyer went before a judge on Wednesday morning (21st October) and requested the divorce case be dismissed, according to reports in a U.S. website.

According to reports in TMZ, Kardashian's lawyer signed the dismissal document on her behalf and Odom signed from his hospital bed.
Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom in December 2013, after months of speculation about their marriage. Nothing went further with their divorce until July of this year when Kardashian filed the final paperwork. Now, with Odom's recent hospitalisation, the previously estranged couple have decided to put things on hold with their divorce.
Odom was hospitalised last week after being found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel. Kardashian, accompanied by her mother Kris Jenner, immediately rushed to Las Vegas to be by Odom's side and, whilst he was unconscious, she was making medical decisions on his behalf. Reports suggest Odom's recovery may take months if not years. Kardashian, with the new revelation about the divorce, appears to be standing by Odom as he recovers.
According to reports, Odom is recovering but he still has a long way to go. Sources, speaking to People, have said that Odom is still on dialysis and has been struggling to stand without assistance. He was transferred from a Las Vegas hospital to Cedar Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles earlier this week.
"Lamar is doing okay. There are still many questions about what will happen in the future," the source told People. "Lamar still can't stand up alone. He has to be helped to a chair right by his bed. He is receiving antibiotics for a respiratory infection. He is also still receiving dialysis."
