Lamar Odom claims he dumped Khloe Kardashian before divorce

SOON TO DIVORCE: Khloe and Lamar in happier times in 2011 (PA)

BASKETBALL PLAYER Lamar Odom insists that he split up with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian despite not being the one to file for divorce.

Last Friday (Dec 13) Kardashian filed divorce papers after four years of marriage to Odom.

The 29-year-old, who is Kim Kardashian’s younger sister, married the former Los Angeles Lakers player in 2009 after the pair had dated for just one month.

The couple had been trying to start a family and several episodes of reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians showed their eagerness to conceive a baby.

But Odom, 34, has been accused of cheating and has reportedly been battling a drug addiction.

Though Kardashian initiated the divorce, friends of Odom claim he was ready to end their four-year union and just wants to focus on his basketball career.

News of the divorce comes just days after the anniversary of the death of Odom’s son, who died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome in June 2006.

His son would have turned eight this month.

Destiny, Odom’s 15-year-old daughter with reality star Liza Morales who once referred to Kardashian as “boo” on twitter, seems to be firmly behind her father's divorce.

She told fans: "No one thought they were going to last, so honestly, who [cares]."

The daughter added that she does not want her NBA star dad to make up with Kardashian: “I don’t want it to happen anyways.

"I have him all to myself now".
