LOS ANGELES, Dec. 12 (UPI) -- Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom are days away from finalizing their divorce.

A Los Angeles judge granted the 32-year-old reality star and 37-year-old former NBA star a divorce Friday, with their marriage to officially be terminated Dec. 17, according to CNN.

Entertainment Tonight reports Kardashian's legal name will be restored to her maiden name of Khloe Kardashian. Neither the reality star nor Odom will receive spousal support, although Kardashian will get their home in Calabasas, Calif.

In addition, Kardashian and Odom will each pay their respective attorney's fees. The pair will both get a 50 percent interest in their joint company, Khlomar, LLC, but the business will be dissolved.

Kardashian initially filed for divorce in December 2013 after four years of marriage, but put proceedings on hold following Odom's hospitalization in October 2015. She filed for divorce again in May.

"I've been blessed with a lot in my life, and I've also had challenges. It was a challenge for me when I decided to get divorced. 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," the star wrote in an essay for Lenny Letter the same month.

"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," she said.

Kardashian is presently dating Cleveland Cavaliers power forward Tristan Thompson. She confirmed the romance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in November, revealing she's "very often" in Cleveland to visit the NBA star.
