Khloé Kardashian is staying bedside Lamar Odom’s hospital bed and is still making medical deciions for him.

She is still legally his wife, PEOPLE has learned.

Though Kardashian, 31, and Odom, 35, both signed divorce papers in July, a judgement has not yet been entered into court. As of Wednesday afternoon, Odom is in a coma and remains unresponsive after doctors discovered cocaine and opiates in his system, a source told PEOPLE.

TMZ also reported that Kardashian has “already made several” medical decisions on Odom’s behalf.

TMZ reported Tuesday night that Odom, 35, had suffered multiple strokes and organ failure, and that he was comatose and breathing with the assistance of a machine.

The Nye County Sheriff’s office held a news conference on Wednesday, during which time Sheriff Sharon Wehrly confirmed Odom is on life support.

Following a whirlwind, month-long courtship, the stars tied the knot on national TV in September 2009. The marriage fell apart after the former basketball player’s cheating scandal and drug relapse, and Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013. The proceedings stalled when Odom wouldn’t sign the papers, and a judge threatened to dismiss the petition all together in April.

TMZ reported Wednesday that the delay in the granting of divorce is due to “an extreme backlog in the family law courts,” and that the divorce is not expected to be finalized for two more months.
