Khloe and Lamar divorce finalized by LA judge

Reality TV celebrity Khloe Kardashian and former Lakers star Lamar Odom will be officially single after a judge finalized their divorce papers on December 9, an article of NBC Los Angeles reported.

Though divorce details were scant, Kardashian, 32, and Odom, 37, can consider themselves single beginning December 17. Khloe filed for divorce from Lamar twice before it was officially finalized. She revoked the first divorce she filed in 2013, feeling a need to attend to Lamar’s medical condition after the basketball player was found unconscious in Nevada in 2015.

$58K child support being sought from NBA star Iguodala

Professional basketball player for the Golden State Warriors Andre Iguodala is facing an increase in monthly child support payments if the mother of his daughter is successful. Reports have said the 31-year-old Warriors shooting guard is currently paying $18,000 each month, but his 6-year-old daughter’s mother, Clayanna Warthen, is seeking to raise that amount to $58,000.

According to reports, Warthen is demanding the increase in monthly payments in order to better accommodate the educational needs of their exceptionally intelligent child. In what many have seen as an attempt to attack Iguodala’s personal character, Warthen claims that he seldom spends time with his daughter.

Yolanda and David Foster Announce Divorce After Trial Separation

The reality stars of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills announced the end of their marriage after months of separation on Tuesday, Dec. 1. Yolanda and David Foster “knew it wouldn’t work” for months before finally making the decision to divorce. The causes for the split stem from Yolanda’s battle with Lyme disease, which pulled the couple apart as she was recovering, and David’s continued traveling for work and charity.

Reports indicate that Yolanda felt as if her husband was not there for her in her time of need. In addition, the couple led separate lives as Grammy-winner David continued to work towards his music career and former Dutch model Yolanda was on bed rest. Yolanda was diagnosed with Lyme disease shortly after her marriage to David in Nov. 2011.

Hours after announcing her divorce, Yolanda blogged about her health struggle with Lyme disease, citing her hopes that a cure for the chronic condition will be discovered soon and sharing her personal experience with the illness. The couple is amicable in their separation, noting that they tried their best and their love has not changed.
