Khloe Kardashian is batting down rumors that she's back with Lamar Odom in her first interview since his hospitalization. She tells People the pair called off their divorce "because there is no rush for it. But that doesn't mean I'm back with Lamar," per Hollywood Life. "I will always love him," she adds, but "I believe when you love someone, you are allowed to love from afar. You don't have to be with that person in order to love him. It's not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now."
People reports Kardashian gave the mag an interview hours before Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13. "All I knew was I had to get there … and make sure he was okay," she says. "Every hour is different. It goes up and it goes down, but he's awake. He's alive and that's all I wanted, was for him to be okay." He still has "a very long road ahead," she adds. "He has to walk that road by himself, and, most importantly, he has to want to walk that road. I will be there supporting him every step of the way." (Sources said earlier that Kardashian gave Odom an ultimatum.)
