The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star was married to Lamar from 2009 until 2013 when she filed for divorce amid rumours he had been unfaithful and dabbling in drugs.
In October this year, he was found unresponsive at a brothel in Nevada and remained in a coma for several days. Now, he is recovering at hospital where he is learning to walk and feed himself again.
Appearing on Ryan Seacrest's radio show this week, Khloe said: "I love Lamar and this was always a huge fear of mine we would get to this place."
The 31-year-old recalled how the decision to divorce Lamar arose. "When I first filed for divorce it was one too many times of Lamar not following through with rehab or interventions. Everyone said I should use the divorce card and get him to make a decision. I did that," she explained.
Khloe said she went through with the divorce when Lamar's ways didn't change. But she called off their divorce, which she had been expediting, while he was in a coma, primarily so she could continue to make medical decisions for him in her capacity as his wife.
She has said that doesn't mean they are getting back together as she's happy with current boyfriend James Harden. Khloe says she will, however, remain in contact with Lamar on his road to recovery.
"I don't see how I could not be involved. I'm so invested and connected that I just feel like it's part of [me]. In my heart it feels that's where I need to be to help him and be supportive to him."
