Khloe Kardashian Says Her Family Urged Her To Leave Lamar Odom’s Side During Health Crisis
Khloé Kardashian is ready to tell all. Us Weekly reports that the ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians” has been revealing more behind the scenes details. Fans have been curious about everything since Lamar Odom was found unconscious at The Love Ranch in October.
Khloé revealed that her famous family of reality TV stars actually encouraged her to leave Lamar Odom’s bedside during his ongoing health crisis. But, as Khloé recounts, their intentions were good. They wanted her to take care of herself.“Just recently I’ve been in the hospital for almost three-and-a-half weeks straight, and finally everyone was saying, ‘Khloe, you have to get out of the hospital and do something that’s for you,'” Khloe, 31, recently told the San Diego Union-Tribune.
“I had such anxiety going to the gym, but as soon as I left, I felt like, ‘Oh my God, I’m okay. I’m human again.’ I just felt so good. But for those three weeks, I didn’t think about the gym because I was thinking about other things, and I don’t beat myself up about it.”
Many people have lots of questions about Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom and whether her concern means that they will attempt getting back together. Khloé set the record straight during a recent interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
“I’m there helping him and I love him and I’ve always loved him,” Khloé said of her decision to halt divorce proceedings between herself and Lamar. “And that will never change. And I just feel like it’s a really insensitive thing to fast-forward a divorce.”
Khloé had been dating the Houston Rockets basketball star before Lamar Odom’s health ordeal began. Khloé Kardashian and James Harden are still romantically involved. So, it doesn’t look like Khloé and Lamar will be getting back together. They’re still just married in name only.
“You know, it’s definitely a very unique situation, to say the least,” Kardashian says of how Harden is handling things. “He’s fine with it. I mean, we have to communicate a lot. And he’s really supportive and great.”
Khloé also revealed that there’s one person who has no idea what really happened to Lamar Odom — and that’s Lamar Odom. She told Ellen that Lamar doesn’t exactly know why he’s been hospitalized and that’s for good reason.
“We tell him he had a brain injury. But I can’t tell him how that brain injury was caused because it will set him back,” Kim Kardashian’s younger sister told the comedian and talk show host. “Sometimes he knows who the president is. He thinks he’s 26. I say ‘I bet you wish you were 26, so do I.”
Khloé Kardashian is also promoting her new book, Strong Looks Better Naked, and has faced lots of criticism for marketing her book while Lamar Odom is recovering. But, according to People Magazine, Khloé says all of her book promotion events were pre-planned well in advance and that Lamar’s health crisis was an unfortunate coincidence.
“This was pre-planned forever, me having my book, and this was always my press time” Khloé told Ellen. “So it’s really awkward to be promoting a book but you know, my heart and mind are in the hospital with somebody else.”
Strong Looks Better Naked features advice and lifestyle tips from Khloé Kardashian on topics like health, fitness and relationships. It also details Khloé’s lifelong struggle’s with weight and her self-image. The book was published by Simon and Schuster.
