It’s no secret Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom have a strained relationship. But, if the latest reports are true, things may get a lot worse before they get any better. According to Hollywood Life, Lamar Odom’s family is stepping up to the plate and demanding that she “step aside.” Although Khloe has been by Lamar’s side since he was rushed to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada, on October 16, his family feels she’s done enough, and it’s time for them to take over. The source also revealed many of Lamar’s close friends and family members aren’t very fond of Khloe.
“Lamar’s family and many of his friends do not like Khloe,” a source revealed. “They have their noses out of joint because she’s in control.”
The source went on to explain how Lamar’s family really feels about the entire situation. There’s reportedly no doubt that Khloe wants the best for Lamar, but they do have an issue with her level of control, according to the source.
“They worry that Lamar’s children aren’t getting their dad’s attention because of Khloe,” the source explained. “They appreciate what she did, but now think it’s time for her to step aside. Lamar loves his children and his family, but he knows he wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for Khloe. He is still leaning on her.”
Khloe Kardashian’s reported rift with Lamar Odom’s family has only caused more problems. In addition to battling medical complications, Lamar is reportedly stressed because he feels like he’s stuck in the middle.
“He’s really caught between a rock and a hard place trying to make everyone happy,” the source said.
The latest report follows yet another bombshell, where an inside source claimed Lamar Odom had kicked Khloe Kardashian out of his hospital room. According to Us Weekly, an insider said Lamar asked Khloe to leave because he “needed space.” If the latest report is true and Lamar is stressed, that would explain his desire to be alone.
“Lamar said he needed space and wanted to be alone,” a source said, according to Us Weekly. “He told her to get out.”
However, OK! Magazine recently reported a different reason for all of the chaos. It has been rumored that the former NBA star accused his estranged wife of using his downfall for publicity and fame to build anticipation for the upcoming season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians. The publication reports that Lamar has accused Khloe of exploiting him for the sake of personal gain. But, that’s not all. Lamar’s request reportedly came after a series of drama-filled events unfolded. Khloe has also been accused of isolating Lamar from his family. Due to the restricted visitation list, many of Lamar’s close friends and family members have been unable to see him since he was transferred to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Both reports could justify why Lamar’s family would be asking Khloe to leave the hospital and why his family would demand she step aside, but neither report has been confirmed. Each day, there’s something new in the world of Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom, but as for now, the reports are just rumors. Do you think Khloe Kardashian needs to step aside and let Lamar Odom’s family help him? Share your thoughts.
