Lamar Odom has reportedly responded to his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian's filing for divorce. The Keeping up with the Kardashians star filed for divorce from her husband in May, citing irreconcilable differences in her petition.

Lamar has reportedly responded to Khloe's divorce petition

According to People Lamar has agreed with Khloé, however he has requested that the judge deny the reality TV star's request for spousal support.

The couple were married in 2009, just one month after meeting. Khloé initially filed for divorce in December 2013, amid reports that the NBA star had relapsed with substance abuse problems and had been unfaithful.

The divorce was yet to be finalised when in 2015 when Khloé decided to call off the proceedings, following Lamar's near-fatal overdose last October.  

"I just thought it was really insensitive to [expedite the divorce]," she admitted at the time in an interview with KIIS FM. "I get it, I get why it's confusing, I understand all of that."

Although the 32-year-old provided both emotional and financial support to Lamar in the months which followed his hospitalisation, it seems the star decided earlier this year that it was the right time to move on.

"This was always the plan," a source told People at the time. "The divorce has never been officially off. Khloé was waiting for the timing to be right."

Lamar has previously opened about his recovery following his drug overdose. The basketball player admitted that he was "scared half to death" while talking to Scott Disick during an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians.

In the clip, Scott asks Lamar: "You been sleeping all right?" to which Lamar replies: "Yeah, that's all I've been doing."

Scott continued to talk about Lamar's hospitalisation, saying: "I was super scared when I came and saw you in the hospital ... you remember everything?" with Lamar replying: "Yeah, I can remember being scared half to death. I was trapped in my body. I couldn't even say excuse me or thank you."

The father-of-three then admitted he was still "taking it day by day."
