Khloé Kardashian Explains How Spirituality Played a Part in Her Divorce
Joan LeMay for Lenny Letter
You might not peg Khloé Kardashian as a regular churchgoer—and you’d be right—but the reality star has a very strong sense of spirituality, which she opens up about in Lena Dunham’s most recent edition of her Lenny Letter newsletter, describing how her faith has had an impact on her life, career, and relationships.
Kardashian explains that she was raised to be religious by her father—and even attended Catholic school at a time—but her faith was tested early on with his passing. Though his death led her to question her beliefs, the grieving experience ultimately helped guide her to her own form of devotion. Kardashian goes on to write that her spirituality also came into play during her decision to divorce ex-husband Lamar Odom.
In the letter she writes, “At my core, I don’t believe in divorce, but I came to a point in my marriage where I had to make the choice to take care of my own mental and emotional well-being in order to protect myself and my happiness. I am at peace with that decision and do feel like I honored my vows to the very end. I feel that I kept the serious vows I made in front of God with every inch of my heart, which is why I am still honoring them today even though my relationship with my ex-husband is in a different place.”
Though Kardashian struggled with ending her marriage, she says she is at peace with her relationship with God, and that she turns to her spirituality, along with her family, to help her through some of the most challenging times in her life.
