Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom were on the brink of ending their marriage. A week after he suffered an overdose that landed him in the hospital, the reality star had a change of heart.

On Wednesday, two days after the former NBA star was flown to a Los Angeles medical center from Nevada, where he had spent almost three days in a coma, her lawyer asked a judge to withdraw their divorce petition. It was signed and had been pending since July due to a backlog.

Check out seven other celebrity couples who called off their divorces.

1. Kobe Bryant and Vanessa Bryant:

In 2003, the Los Angeles Lakers star and Odom's former teammate, who shares two daughters with his wife, admitted to infidelity after he was charged with sexually assaulting a woman in Colorado. The case was dismissed when the 19-year-old accuser dropped the charges. Kobe reportedly dropped $4 million on a make-up ring for Vanessa. Two years later, he spent $50,000 on a re-commitment ceremony.

In December 2011, Vanessa filed for divorce to end their 10-year marriage. In January 2013, she and Kobe announced they had reconciled and had dropped the divorce proceedings.
