There are still many questions surrounding the hospitalization and care of Lamar Odom that have yet to be answered, and they are adding to his confusion while he tries to recover from his catastrophic medical event. For now, Khloe Kardashian has thrown down the gauntlet to say that she is going forward with the divorce, and Lamar Odom is not moving in with her during his rehabilitation. But the bigger question remains: Will Khloe Kardashian continue to make all decisions for Lamar Odom while he is still unable to make them for himself, even after the divorce?
According to the Inquisitr, Lamar Odom’s care and decisions are being made by Khloe Kardashian and family, not by any members of Lamar Odom’s family. The tragedy surrounding his strokes and recovery will be front and center on Keeping Up with the Kardashians, and Odom is not in any condition to vote yay or nay on this important decision. Regardless of how the relationship was before all of the strokes and the overdose, it is hard to believe that anyone would want to be filmed for KUWTK such a vulnerable state, especially while being told you don’t have a place to live.
Radar Online is reporting that a conflict has arisen about the management and location of Odom’s continued recovery. It is complicated by the fact that he is still incontinent and does not want to wear adult diapers. Odom is a large man, even for the NBA, which means he cannot be cared for by a typical single-nurse situation.
“His associates really would like for him to have a home health-care type of situation, but that may not be possible.”
But whose home could and would accommodate this situation? Khloe Kardashian says it is not her.
“Khloe has flat our refused to let Lamar move into her house,” the source told Radar. “She doesn’t want her house to be a hospital. She has been very clear about that.”
Another problem is security. Odom needs to be in a place where he is secure and away from the press and, perhaps, away from the KUWTK cameras.
But according to Starcasm, as much as she cares for Odom, she is ready to move forward. But while recovering from her staph infection, Kardashian went on a Twitter rant to explain that she will not remain married to Odom.
“Shortly before Thanksgiving, Khloe, high on medication following a staph infection she caught from Lamar, ranted against her husband on Twitter, calling him “the man who went against all our vows” and reminding viewers ‘he wasn’t picking roses’ before telling detractors to ‘get off my d**k.’ And, in a move that’s been interpreted as the next stage of the Khloe Kardashian divorce, she’s since attempted to set firm post-hospital boundaries, reportedly telling Lamar that he can under no circumstances stay at her house to recover.”
Kardashian admitted that she still loves Odom, but she needs to move forward and not backward.
“I still very much love Lamar,” she explained, “but I need to move forward. I don’t feel you ever really have peace from walking away from any situation that you wish ended up differently.”
Only time will tell where Lamar Odom will go for recovery, if he is able to understand what is going on with his life, and if Kardashian will keep serving as the conservator of Odom’s estate.
Do you think someone else should be appointed to take over Lamar Odom’s affairs while he recovers?
