Rapper Tyga is reportedly helping his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, deal with her brother-in-law Lamar Odom’s current health crisis.
On October 13, Odom was found unconscious at a brothel in Las Vegas, where he had reportedly been partying since the previous Saturday. According to a TMZ report at the time, Odom was found by two women, who noted that mucus was coming out of his nose and mouth before calling 911. Once Odom was taken to a nearby hospital, doctors intubated and stabilized the athlete before transporting him to a second hospital, the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, where he remained until Monday.
Currently, Odom is being treated at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where both rapper Tyga and his girlfriend, Kylie Jenner, reside. Also living in Los Angeles is Odom’s wife and Jenner’s older half-sister, Khloe Kardashian, who has been at Odom’s side since last Tuesday (Kardashian immediately boarded a private jet to Las Vegas after hearing news of Odom being found at the brothel).

Now that Odom is back in Los Angeles, rapper Tyga and the Jenner/Kardashian family will surely be more hands-on when it comes to his recovery. In fact, rapper Tyga has also been extremely helpful to his girlfriend as she continues to struggle with news of Odom’s situation.
Below is what a source revealed to Hollywood Life on October 19.
“[Rapper Tyga]’s very much part of the Kardashian family and he feels just as much pain as Kylie does for Lamar. Kylie’s been very sad, crying, and very emotional as her brother-in-law has been fighting extremely hard to save his life.”
Following news of Odom being found unconscious, rapper Tyga shared a photo of Odom on Instagram, along with the caption, “Stay strong bro. We all praying for you champ. God got a plan for you.”
A number of members of the Jenner/Kardashian family also shared messages for Odom online, including Kylie, Kendall, and Kris Jenner, and Kourtney, Rob, and Kim Kardashian.
“She’s also a nervous wreck and feels broken seeing Khloe go through so much pain and agony. [Rapper Tyga]’s been nothing but supportive to Kylie. He has been her shoulder to cry on. Her confidant. Her strength. He’s been telling Kylie ‘don’t worry, I got you, everything’s going to be all right with Lamar.’ “
The Hollywood Life source went on to reveal that rapper Tyga has been an “at home husband” for Kylie Jenner, “answering her phone, taking her messages and basically being her assistant when she flew out of town to comfort Khloe at Lamar’s beside.”
Although rapper Tyga and Jenner had been linked to one another since last summer, they only went public a few months ago, after Jenner turned 18.

In a second Hollywood Life report, it was revealed that Odom was facing a life-threatening lung infection due to the aspiration pneumonia he is currently suffering from. According to a description by Drugs.com, the illness could lead to an infection, which could prove fatal.
“Your lungs may slowly fail to pump enough oxygen into your blood. You could develop a blood infection called sepsis, or a lung abscess. This means part of your lung tissue begins to die. Any of the risks of aspiration pneumonia can be life-threatening.”
Odom is also said to be suffering from failing kidneys.
Since sharing his Instagram message for Odom last week, rapper Tyga has stayed silent in regard to the former professional athlete’s health and prognosis.
