Khloe Kardashian may be in a relationship with French Montana, but something is getting in the way of it growing into something truly serious:
The pesky problem of her still being legally married to Lamar Odom.
Over the weekend, friends say Khloe was gushing over Montana while they partied in Las Vegas, saying the rapper "treats her like a queen."
HOWEVER, "she isn’t fully able to enjoy it because Lamar still hasn’t submitted a response in their divorce proceedings," an insider tells Radar Online.
It's been five months since Khloe filed to end her marriage, yet Odom continues to drag his athletic feet.
The couple signed a pre-nuptial agreement, so the process should be relatively simple.
But this source says Lamar "hasn’t been returning phone calls and text messages from Khloé regarding the divorce. He is disappearing for days at a time again, and hanging out with ‘shady’ people."
Uh-oh. Let's hope this failed relationship doesn't send Odom back off the sober wagon.
Radar actually says Odom has been "blowing up [Khloe's] phone” with “desperate calls” and still believes a reconciliation is possible.
But Kardashian has just started to make her dalliance with Montana public and is giving no one a reason to believe she wants anything to do with Lamar again.
Here is another insider's take on the situation:
"Lamar knows the marriage is over, but it just isn’t a priority to him, filing the response, and going thru the court proceedings. He just wants to live his life in New York and be left alone.
"The fact it’s pissing Khloe off that Lamar is holding out, does give him some satisfaction. His ego has taken a huge hit because she is publicly rebounding with French."
