Khloe Kardashian discusses her husband and boyfriend: "I’m a Polygamist"

Khloe Kardashian is dating James Harden while not yet divorced from husband Lamar Odom, who is recovering following a recent health scare. "I’m just gonna say I’m like part of Polygamy now. I have a husband. I have a boyfriend. That’s a way easier thing to say. Right?"

Khloe Kardashian discussed Lamar Odom's ongoing recovery during a visit to "The Ellen Show." It airs Monday.

Khloe and Lamar had decided to end their marriage some time ago, but pumped the brakes after his recent medical emergency. She rushed to his side after was found in extremely critical condition Oct. 13 at the Love Ranch brothel in the rural community of Crystal, Nevada, and hospitalized in Las Vegas. He later regained consciousness and was transported to Los Angeles on Monday.

Lamar still faces a long road to recovery and Khloe says she'll remain supportive. For now, they're still officially married and she says it would be insensitive to rush divorce proceedings given his condition.

"I love him and I always will and he’s a fantastic person who deserves support and love and for someone to be by his side and for me I’m that to him," she said during a visit to "The Ellen Show." "And thank God I have a fantastic family who loves me and loves him just as much. And they’re so supportive and they’re with me and I have a great boyfriend who’s understanding."
