Khloe Kardashian, trying to reconcile with Odom withdraws divorce filing

— -- LOS ANGELES -- Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have decided to stay married as the former NBA star continues his recovery a week after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

Kardashian's lawyer, Laura Wasser, went before a Los Angeles judge Wednesday to withdraw divorce papers filed in December 2013. The judge granted the request.

The one-page document signed by Odom and Kardashian was submitted without prejudice, which means it can be refiled at later date.

Kardashian has been by Odom's side since he was found in extremely critical condition Oct. 13 at the Love Ranch brothel in the rural community of Crystal, Nevada. He regained consciousness Friday and was transported to Los Angeles on Monday to recover.

Kardashian posted a separate statement to her website Tuesday saying Odom made "incredible strides'' at the Las Vegas hospital and thanking the doctors and nurses "for their kindness and diligent work.'' The family has received strength from the outpouring of support from Odom's fans, she said.

Kardashian and Odom met at a party in 2009 and, within four weeks, went from giddy lovers to newlyweds, with their wedding showcased in 2009 on "Keeping Up with the Kardashians."

Though the divorce proceedings plodded along, Kardashian never really let go. Odom and their failed relationship, and what she considers his failings, "will weigh on me for the rest of my life," she said on "Keeping Up" last season.

"That wasn't what I wanted, so for the rest of my life I'm going to deal with that and worry about him and think about him and want just to protect him," she said.
