(Newser) – Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom called off their divorce—but not just because Lamar is undergoing a scary health crisis. Sources tell TMZ that Khloe decided to take Lamar back because he hit rock bottom when he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel, and when she came to his side, he told her, "I am done with drugs." (TMZ previously reported that Khloe held off on moving forward with divorce plans until just this summer, when she finally gave up on the idea that she'd be able to convince Lamar to go to rehab.) But some of the Kardashians don't believe Lamar, according to TMZ, because he's made similar statements before.

According to the gossip site's sources, Lamar also told Khloe (whose last name is still legally Odom, Fox News notes—she apparently never changed it) he loved her and thanked her for coming to be with him. A CNN source has a slightly less romantic take on the whole thing, saying, "This is a very delicate and difficult time for both Lamar and Khloe, and the most sensible thing to do at such a time is not make any big moves and put everything on hold." (The rest of the Kardashian clan is already back to partying.)
