Lamar Odom is reportedly upset over Khloe Kardashian’s recent string of interviews, in which she has spoken candidly about Lamar Odom’s October 2015 drug overdose, her thoughts on his time at a Nevada brothel, and his cheating.
As the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star promotes her new book, the series, and other projects around the country, she has often spoke of Lamar Odom, and she hasn’t held back. Instead, Kardashian has chronicled Lamar Odom’s journey back to health, which recently entered its third month, and he isn’t happy.

“Lamar heard the entire interview Khloe did with Howard and was very unhappy about it,” a source alleged to Radar Online on January 15. “Didn’t she just go out on another media tour for her book and take credit for saving [Lamar Odom]’s life?”
In addition to making Lamar Odom promise he’d never go to a brothel again, Kardashian recommended him to pay for sex in the privacy of a hotel room, and revealed he had often cheated on her during their four-year marriage. She even went as far as to detail his alleged cheating, claiming Lamar Odom used his assistant’s phone to commit adultery.
“[Lamar Odom] called Khloe and asked her to stop talking about him,” the source said. “He is trying to get on with his life and all Khloe wants to do is dredge up the past.”
While Kardashian moved on from her marriage to Lamar Odom in 2013, following reports of his drug use and multiple affairs, she has kept in touch with the former professional athlete in the years since, and immediately flew to his side after he was found unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch months ago.
As for the possibility of staying silent on the issue, Kardashian has reportedly informed Lamar Odom that she will continue to answer the questions she’s asked.
“Khloe told [Lamar Odom] there was nothing she could do about it because she continues to be asked about how he is doing,” the source continued. “[Lamar Odom] pointed out that she isn’t going out and going into detail about Rob’s issues. And bringing Lamar’s assistant into the whole thing by claiming he set up the rendezvous was just a low blow.”
Following Lamar Odom’s health crisis, Kardashian’s younger brother, Rob, who has lived with her for years, was diagnosed with diabetes after falling ill over the holidays.
Now, the source said, “[Lamar Odom] is ready to get out of Los Angeles and go back to Las Vegas, away from Khloe. Khloe just wants to look like a saint to the rest of the world, but behind close doors she has given Lamar hell, and he’s not going to let her use him for PR any more.”

In her latest interview on Live! with Kelly & Michael, Kardashian offered an update on Lamar Odom’s health.
“He’s doing good. I’m very happy to report he’s doing great,” Khloe said, according to a report by Just Jared on January 15. “He’s out of the hospital. It’s such a relief. It was terrifying and scary and no one knew what was going to happen.”
“[Lamar Odom] wasn’t even walking three weeks ago and he was able to walk out of the hospital,” she added.
During recent episodes of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Lamar Odom has been spoken of but not seen, and so far, there’s been no confirmation that his medical ordeal will serve as a storyline on the show.
