Source Defends Lamar Odom 'Weight Gain'

A source close to Lamar Odom has defended his reported weight gain saying it's all muscles. Online pictures surfaced showing Lamar looking a little "chubbier" than he used to be. The source said Lamar isn't packing on pounds, but instead, he is reportedly working out to get leaner and build more muscles in anticipation of his comeback in the National Basketball Association (NBA).
Basketball player Lamar Odom departs the New York state Supreme Court after a child custody hearing with his ex-girlfriend, Liza Morales, in Manhattan, March 5, 2013.
"He's not fat," the source told Hollywood Life. "He's been lifting weights and trying to get stronger and much healthier so that he can compete on the NBA level."
Several news outlets suggested Lamar's current and highly publicized divorce from Khloe Kardashian might be giving him so much pressure and anxiety. He apparently still wants to work things out with the reality TV star.
Even though Khloe has perfectly showed the general public that she has moved on from Lamar by going out with French Montana, the basketball athlete is still not losing hope that one day he will patch things up with Khloe. It is the main reason he won't sign the divorce papers that Khloe has filed five months ago in December.
"Lamar wants Khloe back," another insider told Life and Style via Hollywood Life.
"He does not want to end the marriage, and that's why he won't sign the divorce papers," the insider added.
Lamar thought Khloe will give him another chance now that he's sober and getting his life sorted out.
In February, Lamar told US Weekly that their divorce may not even push through. Even if it did, he said Khloe will always be his wife.
"We don't know exactly if divorce is going through, only time will tell, I hope not."
"But even if we were divorced, she would always be my wife."
