Lamar Odom says Khloe Kardashian will “always be my wife, no matter what.”

The basketball player made the comments to "Us Weekly" following a press conference for his new Spanish team Laboral Kutxa.

Odom is quoted as saying, “I love my wife. She’ll always be my wife, no matter what.”

Kardashian filed to divorce him in December.

“Who knows? We don’t know exactly if [the divorce will be finalized],” Odom tells the outlet. “Only time will tell. I hope not. But even if we were divorced, she would always be my wife.”

He went on to say of his time with Kardashian, “Those were some of the best years of my life. Being married and being married to a woman I decided to marry was, besides having children, the most important thing in my life.”

Odom is quoted as saying of his past indiscretions, “We all have regrets, but the thing is to learn from life. There is no one in this room, no one in this world, who can say, ‘I’m mistake-free, I’ve made no mistakes.’”
