Khloé Kardashian proved that family is everything when she showed up to Kanye West’s show with Lamar Odom, but some people can’t understand this basic concept.
Kardashian has stuck by Odom’s side through thick and thin, even after making a legal move to end their marriage — when the poop hit the fan and Odom OD’d in Vegas, his almost-ex-wife was one of the first by his side. She has stayed there ever since.
Now, hot on the heels of her relationship with basketball star James Harden officially ending after months of speculation, Kardashian and Odom are spotted looking super chill and happy together at West’s New York Fashion Week showing — and people absolutely cannot handle it.
Commentary ran the gamut from speculation that the pair is rekindling their romance to the whole thing being nothing more than another Kardashian publicity stunt to keep their name in the papers.
And guess what? Girlfriend is not having it.
Kardashian went off on social media today, criticizing those who would question that there is any motive besides love and friendship behind the pair’s obvious amity.
Kardashian’s true fans totally backed her up, echoing the sentiment that putting your differences aside for the greater good — especially when that person you care so much about almost died — is always an admirable thing.
But honestly, this tweet really got to the heart of why people are talking about her appearance with Odom in the first place.
For real. People just really loved this pair together. Odom’s addiction led him down a very dark path, for sure, and we can’t imagine the pain Kardashian went through while dealing with the cheating and the lying. But Odom was always presented as a happy-go-lucky, loving character on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and the love they shared — even if it was presented on television — was obviously very real. Kardashian never seemed as wildly happy as she did when things were good between her and Odom, and people just want her to have the happy ending she deserves — they just think it should be with Odom.
But at the end of the day, only she can decide what’s best for her, and only Odom can get himself right.
