As the one year anniversary of Khloe Kardashian filing for divorce from Lamar Odom approaches on December 13, the reality starlet is hardly any closer to ending her marriage once and for all. In fact, RadarOnline.com has learned that a judge recently warned the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star that her case is headed for automatic dismissal — because the proceedings have gone on so long with no action!
Court documents obtained by Radar reveal that on October 9, a notice of case review default was submitted by Judge Scott Gordon, notifying Kardashian that the divorce petition could be dismissed for failure to take any action in the case.
But that doesn't mean she's ready for a reconciliation.
"Becoming legally divorced would allow Khloe to move on, while lawyers for the former couple hash out a financial settlement," the source said. "However, Khloe has held off on taking that drastic step."
"She can never trust Lamar again, after being cheated on so many times, but she is becoming more and more despondent about her personal life," the source explained.
Odom's birthday was on November 7, and Kardashian posted a cryptic message on social media.
His estranged wife posted a quote to her Instagram page, which read, "Like time suspended, a wound unmended — you and I. We had no ending, no said goodbye. For all my life, I'll wonder why."
The former couple "do talk on the phone sometimes, but there is no chance that they will ever get back together," the source said. "Khloe can't go back to that dark place, but just seems paralyzed with fear to move forward."
