Kardashian, 31, has previously seemed to worship at the church of Gucci and Hermes. But she's penned a bizarre essay about how she has secretly "always been a very spiritual person," and claimed that her "relationship with God" helped her come to the difficult decision to divorce her husband Lamar Odom. She also said the Lord even helped her decide to stay in the marriage after Odom's cocaine- and booze-fueled overdose.

Opening up in Lena Dunham's Lenny Letter, she wrote about her broken marriage. "I've been blessed with a lot in my life, and I've also had challenges. It was a challenge for me when I decided to get divorced," she wrote. "At my core, I don't believe in divorce, but I came to a point in my marriage where I had to make the choice to take care of my own mental and emotional well-being in order to protect myself and my happiness."

"I am at peace with that decision, and do feel like I honored my vows to the very end," she said in a pointed message to Odom, who was plagued with drug abuse and cheating scandals during his marriage to the reality star. "I feel that I kept the serious vows I made in front of God with every inch of my heart."
Odom's overdose in a Las Vegas brothel in October 2015 changed everything, but Kardashian claimed it was her spirituality that has caused her to ask a judge to dismiss the divorce. "I am still honoring those vows today even though my relationship with my ex-husband is in a different place," she wrote. "I believe in caring for my partner — past or present — 'in sickness and in health,' and feel at peace with my relationship with God even after the fact."
Kardashian claimed that she looked to a higher power when life was most challenging. "I'm thankful that I can rely on my God, who, along with my family, has led me through some of the most difficult times of my life," she explained. For example, she was arrested for DUI in 2007, but said God was by her side even then. "Believing in a higher power is what guides me to make the right decisions," Kardashian wrote. "While I believe in heaven and hell and angels and spirits, I don't judge people for their beliefs. And I don't understand how others can sit around casting judgments on people because they have different religions and a certain point of view."
Kardashian she did show a little bit of self-awareness, though. "When you think Kardashian, devout probably isn't the first thing that crosses your mind," she admitted. "Believe it or not, I come from a very religious family." What do you think about religious Khloe? Sound off in comments below.
