Newly divorced Lamar Odom reveals he wants ex-wife Khloé Kardashian back

Lamar Odom still has hopes to rebuild his marriage with his ex-wife Khloé Kardashian. The former basketball star has revealed his intention to win back Khloé, just weeks after the couple's divorce was finalised.

During an appearance on The Doctors, host Travis Lane Stork asked: "Going forward, when you look at your life ahead of you, what are you looking forward to?"

Lamar, 37, replied: "Um, honestly? I want my wife back," prompting cheers from the audience.

The sportsman and the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star split in 2013, although their divorce wasn't finalised for another three years.

Khloé filed for divorce twice, amid rumours of infidelity on her husband's part. She called off the divorce in October 2015 when Lamar suffered a suspected overdose in Las Vegas, and helped nurse him back to health. However Khloé, 32, filed for divorce again in May last year and the split was finalised in December.

The reality TV star has put her troubled past behind her and is now dating basketball player Tristan Thompson. Khloé's personal life seems to be on a high, as she recently revealed on her blog that she is the happiest she's been in a long time.

"At this moment, a few days into 2017, I feel incredibly clear and probably the happiest I've been in years," Kim Kardashian's younger sister wrote.

And when asked by Extra's Terri Seymour if Tristan is The One earlier this week, Khloé admitted: "I think that's why we all are in relationships, to find The One. I am in love with him, I think he's the best. So I hope so. Only time will tell."
