Khloe Kardashian doesn’t appear to be leaving Lamar Odom’s side anytime soon. The newly reconnected couple have called off their divorce, and the Kardashian sister is spending all of her time ensuring Odom receives the care that he needs. In fact, Khloe skipped out on sister Kim Kardashian’s 35th birthday party, which was held at Westlake Cinepolis theater in Los Angeles, to continue her watch over husband Lamar.
The Daily Mail reports that Khloe Kardashian was absent from Kim Kardashian’s 35th birthday party celebrations. Instead, the newly doting wife remained at Lamar Odom’s bedside. The absence from Kim’s party followed reports that Lamar “isn’t doing that well” since being moved to Cedars-Sinai hospital in West Hollywood. The former NBA player was taken by medical helicopter to the California hospital for rehabilitation following the Nevada brothel incident that left him unconscious and fighting for his life.
Odom was found unconscious in the Love Ranch brothel VIP suite by two prostitutes who had been servicing him during his four-day stay at the ranch. The girls say that Odom was found with a white substance coming from his mouth and blood coming from his nose. Emergency crews were called to the house, and it was determined by hospital staff in Nevada that the basketball great had suffered the side effects of drug and alcohol use. One report states that “every drug imaginable” was found in his system, and the 911 call received from the Love Ranch indicates that Odom had done cocaine the day before being found in his state of distress.
Initially, Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof claimed that the brothel was unaware of any drug use on its premises. However, he later recounted and says he was personally unaware of the drug use and that both prostitutes, Cherry Ryder and Monica Monroe, who had been servicing Odom were likely involved in the incident and are no longer with the ranch.
Despite the drug allegations and hospital stay, Khloe Kardashian is wanting to make it work with estranged husband Lamar Odom. The pair had filed for divorce back in 2013, but the papers were never finalized by a judge as the divorce proceedings had been drawn out. Now, following Lamar’s alleged commitment to seek help for his drug problems, Khloe has called off the divorce. However, it was noted that “the document was submitted without prejudice, which means it can be refiled at later date.”
While Khloe remains by Lamar, who is said to be suffering kidney issues and requiring daily dialysis, Kim Kardashian was celebrating her 35th birthday with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family. Kim’s husband, Kanye, rented out the entire Westlake Cinepolis movie theater in Los Angeles for a private showing of Steve Jobs in celebration of Kim’s birthday. He also surprised Kim by having guests put on “fake baby bumps” for the festivities. The birthday cake read “Happy pregnant birthday Kim,” and the theme centered on the fact that Kim was expecting. The theme may seem a bit strange, however, those who follow the Kardashian family know that Kim tried desperately to get pregnant a second time and struggled with conceiving. Therefore, when she found out she was pregnant with the couple’s second child, she was ecstatic.
Though Khloe Kardashian was not present at Kim’s party in person, she was there in spirit as she posted a sweet message to her sister on Facebook noting that she is “loved and dope.”
“Happy birthday Keeks!! I pray you know how loved and dope you are!!! You continuously amaze me by how you do it all. Thank you for always being there for everyone! Today is about you!!! Enjoy it Mrs West!!! I love you, My bestie, my sister, my rider!”
