Khloe Kardashian has made one thing clear for Lamar Odom as he recovers from his highly publicized drug overdose inside a Las Vegas brothel. Apparently, he won’t be staying with her after he’s discharged from Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, CA. According to Radar Online, an inside source close to Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom has revealed the former NBA star has a long road to recovery ahead even after he’s discharged from the hospital.
“Lamar can’t stay at Cedars forever,” an insider reportedly told Radar. “He needs long-term care.”
In fact, the possibility of a full recovery for Lamar Odom is so grim that he may require long-term care for years to come. By now, everyone is probably aware of the fact that Lamar has been hospitalized since October 13.
Initially, he was admitted to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, but later transferred to Cedars-Sinai a couple weeks before Thanksgiving. But, of course, since hospitals don’t offer long-term care, it’s only a matter of time before he has to be taken elsewhere. However, the insider has revealed that Khloe Kardashian adamantly insists Lamar Odom won’t be receiving that long-term care at her home.
“His associates really would like for him to have a home health-care type of situation, but that may not be possible,” the insider said. “Khloe has flat our refused to let Lamar move into her house. She doesn’t want her house to be a hospital. She has been very clear about that.”
At this point, it is unclear where Lamar Odom will end up. Although his children and other family members live on the east coast, there are reportedly no claims that he will be transported there either. His family reportedly wants him to be placed in a long-term care facility but have made no plans as of yet.
“Lamar’s people want him to be in a quality care facility. But they are having trouble finding one that is secure and will provide him with the treatment he needs.”
If the latest claims are true, it’s very likely Khloe Kardashian will be criticized via social media for abandoning Lamar Odom and this wouldn’t be the first time. Less than two weeks ago, Twitter users criticized Khloe for dating James Harden during such a traumatic experience in Lamar’s life. She was also ridiculed for dating the Houston Rockets star because she is still legally married to Lamar.
For those who missed it, KhloeKardashian and Lamar Odom opted to halt their divorce proceedings in the wake of his hospitalization. Although most news outlets assumed Lamar Odom’s near-death experience inspired them to reconcile their marriage, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star made it clear that the decision was only due to bad timing and had nothing to do with love.
According to Us Weekly, she also fired back at critics via Twitter by reminding them that Lamar cheated on her and that she did take her vows seriously. Khloe’s colorful tweets caught the attention of fans, social media users, and news outlets everywhere.
“You should have said those to the man who went against all our vows,” Khloe tweeted.
