Khloé Kardashian is withdrawing from the limelight this summer, and she says that taking care of her marriage is a big motivator behind the decision, according to PEOPLE.
The couple announced they are putting their show Khloé & Lamar on hold until Lamar’s basketball career is back on track. The 32-year-old athlete is currently sitting out the season after a difficult trade to Dallas. Khloé , 27, says that now that they will no longer be on public display, there will be less pressure on the couple.
“I’m a modern girl, but you should put your husband first,” Khloé says. “I like to think divorce is not an option.”
The couple is used to being in the public eye, especially since they famously got engaged just 9 days after their first date in 2009 and exchanged vows within the following month. More recently, there was been speculation that the couple has been dealing with marital problems.
“We just wanted a little pause. Part of being married is knowing when your husband needs your support,” Khloé explains.
Khloé ‘s sister Kim is in the midst of a divorce battle with ex Kris Humphries after a 72-day marriage.
Although Khloé and Lamar will be taking a hiatus from their show, they will continue to make appearances on Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“We just want to take a little time off for Lamar to be with family, kids, basketball, Olympics, you never know,” Kardashian says. Odom is training in Los Angeles and hopes to play in the summer Olympics.
