Khloé Kardashian has admitted that she still loves her troubled ex-husband Lamar Odom with every fibre of her being.
The 31-year-old reality TV star has been caring for the former basketball star after his collapse from a drugs and alcohol binge at a brothel in Nevada last year, but she insists it is not romantic.
“We’re not back together. We’re not at all,” she told the hosts of The Talk. “I love him with every fiber of my being…but we were married and I shared that union with him.”
It’s that union that fuels her devotion to her ex-husband during his difficult recovery, she said.
“I still believe in my vows of being there for him. I know it’s confusing. It’s very confusing,” she said. “It’s not a romantic place. It’s coming from a place of real care and concern and love.”
Khloé also had her say on meddlers who are romantically linking her with Lamar: “I don’t think love just because we’re not romantically involved means I can’t care about someone. I find that so simple-minded.”
