Us Magazine wrote that Khloé actually moved Lamar Odom without telling Odom’s family that the move was going to be happening. Khloé and Lamar are in LA, while his family is in New York. Last Wednesday, he moved out of Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles and into the rehab facility.

Lamar was able to spend Christmas with his kids. Lamar’s son even posted a pic of them on his Instagram page (which is private). Khloé Kardashian was not present. The former married couple are not planning to reconcile, even though she’s been helping him through this hard time. A source close to Lamar was able to share what happened over the holidays.
“Lamar is doing way better. He was so happy the kids were there with him for Christmas and they were so happy to be with him. The kids were happy … to bring him gifts, all of his favorite things that they wrapped up. They had so much fun. It was very emotional and very happy.”
Khloé Kardashian shared that when Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel, she was told that he only had four hours left to live. Khloé rushed to be by his side and she is still helping him out. The rehab facility is reportedly close to Khloé’s home; she didn’t let Lamar actually move in with her while he is healing. Four months after the accident, Lamar is still doing well and Khloé hasn’t seemed to turn her back on him yet.

Hollywood Life shared that Khloé Kardashian is actually using Lamar Odom as an example for her brother, Rob Kardashian, by telling him that if Lamar can get better, then he can do it, too. Rob Kardashian was rushed to the hospital and diagnosed with diabetes. Rumors stated he returned to living with Khloé Kardashian after the incident. Regardless, she has always helped take care of him. Using Lamar to get to Rob could be a really smart move for Khloé Kardashian. Here is what a source had to say about what Khloé is telling Rob.
“Instead of putting Rob on blast and coming down incredibly hard on him and his issues, Khloe’s using a softer approach. She’s in his head and mentally trying to change the way he thinks about his life. She hates using comparisons but she had no choice but to [do so] in this situation.”
There has been no word on if Lamar Odom’s family was upset that Khloé Kardashian didn’t tell them about the big move. Based on their regular visitation, it is clear that they would want to know where he is being treated. Taking Lamar Odom outside was reportedly hard to do and they were able to pull it off without paparazzi popping up everywhere. Avoiding the media may be a reason why Khloé Kardashian didn’t want anyone to know they were moving Lamar. It seems she was able to keep it quiet. It is also a secret where Lamar is staying now. The only reported detail is it a rehab center close to Khloé Kardashian’s house.
