Khloe Kardashian called off her divorce from Lamar Odom after he suffered a near-death drug overdose, but the decision wasn’t made so they could rekindle their relationship. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star revealed why she doesn’t plan to give her marriage another shot and how she felt when she received the devastating news.

“It's out in the media that we are back together, but I wish people understood that's not in our thought process right now," the 31-year-old told People. "There are too many other important things, too many medical things. It's not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now."

The reality star explained that their current relationship isn’t “sexual or intimate,” and that she wants to be “his support system.” She added, “Tragedy does make you reassess a lot of things, but when it comes to our relationship, it's the same, except I'm here supporting him fully."

Although Khloe is currently dating NBA player James Harden, she is in no rush to finalize her divorce from her estranged husband. "I'm not trying to get married tomorrow to anybody," she said. "It's just bad timing to proceed with that right now. And also for medical reasons, it's just smarter that gets on hold for a minute. But that does not mean I'm back with Lamar. That's a whole other thing that only time will tell. I can't tell you what tomorrow brings."

The E! star also opened up about the moment she heard her estranged husband was found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel. “All I knew was I had to get there," she said. "I had to get to him and make sure he was okay. I hate that he was in that situation. I wouldn't want anybody in that situation, especially someone I love and care about."

Although Lamar has miraculously recovered from the overdose, Khloe revealed that he isn’t out of the woods yet. “Every hour is different,” she said. “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.”

While Khloe has chosen to love Lamar “from afar,” she will continue to be supportive with his recovery. “There is a very long road ahead of Lamar,” she explained. “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."
