Unfortunately, this Khloe Kardashian story may not have a happy ending. The reality starlet cut off contact with her estranged-husband Lamar Odom over the summer, and it sounds like she’s regretting it now. E! Online is reporting that Khloe has met up with the rest of the Kardashian clan at mom Kris’ home following the news that her estranged-husband was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel.
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star is even now on her way to her estranged ex’s side. Source have reported that she’d be going to him, following the breaking news of his condition. So far, Odom is rumored to still be in a coma and in critical condition in a Nevada hospital since being found on October 10.
Khloe Kardashian has been very forthright about her devotion to her ex-husband. She’s publicly stated that she’d prefer to be with him than without him, but she has also cited his need to work through personal issues. Reportedly, the young reality star is devastated over the news of Odom’s condition.
“I will never, ever not love Lamar. I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that.”
Khloe Kardashian and her husband had a relatively brief cohabitation/marriage. Odom has a history of substance abuse problems; he plead guilty to DUI back in 2013, which was the last time he played professional basketball with NBA. Despite his personal issues with drugs/alcohol, he rose to fame as the husband of the famed Kardashian sister. According to a report by Hollywood Life, Odom was in good spirits prior to being found face down and unresponsive at the Love Ranch in Nevada. He’d been out with some friends and sexy ladies before reportedly indulging in a large amount of what’s been referred to only as “herbal Viagra.”
Hollywood Life is also reporting that Khloe Kardashian, her mother Kris Jenner, and her notorious sister Kim Kardashian have dispatched via private plane to be at Odom’s bedside.
Unfortunately, at this time, Odom’s condition is not good. He is still listed as “critical” and is being ventilated via a tube. While the Kardashiand/Odom divorce was filed back in late 2013, the pair are still legally married. This could spark some unique legal issues in the days to come, depending upon Lamar’s prognosis and medical progress.
Khloe Kardashian is understandably distraught this morning, both because of her estranged husband’s condition and where he was found, as well.
The situation is even more heartbreaking as Odom recently lost his long-time friend, Jamie Sangouthai. Jamie lost his battle with colon cancer at the young age of 37 in June. Khloe, along with the rest of the famous Kardashian clan, publicly consoled Odom on their reality TV show. Jamie was Odom’s best man at his wedding to Khloe Kardashian, and rumor has it that the ex-NBA star was still deeply in mourning for his friend. It’s difficult to tell how much Odom’s emotional devastation over the loss of his good friend (the pair had been best friends since high school) contributed to the tragedy that led Khloe Kardashian to his side this morning.
Social media has been abuzz with speculation about the well-being of Lamar Odom, whose unfortunate hospitalization comes just weeks after the entertainment world officially lost Bobbi Kristina Brown. The Kardashian family has circled its considerable wagons around Khloe, but all of the support in the world may not be enough to protect her from the potential heartache to come. There are rumors circulating that Odom might be brain dead, which would put Khloe Kardashian in a difficult position. Despite not officially being divorced, the pair are definitely and publicly estranged.
The coming days and hours will be telling for both Odom and his Kardashian wife. Well wishers should send both Odom and Khloe Kardashian the best of vibes; the couple will need all of the love they can get during this difficult time.
