Khloe Kardashian’s ex Lamar Odom has more hospitalization drama to deal with. Odom’s father was admitted to New York Veteran’s Hospital after suffering severe and painful breathing problems.
Lamar Odom can’t seem to catch a break. His father, Joe, was taken to the hospital in New York, according to Radar Online.
Lamar Odom has reportedly been in contact with his 61-year-old father after learning about his failing health. Radar spoke with Joe Odom, who told them about his contact with his son.
“Lamar’s been worried about me and wanted to know how I am.”
Joe has apparently been rather low on cash and was seen rummaging through bins on the street outside of a charity store shortly before being admitted to the hospital.
Joe revealed that he had been having a hard time since being cut off financially from Lamar’s funds following his overdose crisis at a Nevada brothel last year.
“I’m feeling a little bit better now I’m in hospital. I’m still having trouble breathing though.”
Khloe Kardashian’s former father-in-law is being given medication and will remain in the hospital for now.
Radar obtained photographs of the NBA player’s father while he was in a hospital bed.
“I don’t want to relapse and I’m taking lots of antibiotics. It’s comfortable in hospital. They’re looking after me.”
Odom’s father does not want his son to have to worry about him as Lamar has all of his own health problems to worry about.
“I don’t want Lamar to be worried about me.”
Lamar Odom had previously been paying the $4,000-a-month rent for his father’s waterfront apartment in Los Angeles.
However, Joe was in for a rude awakening after Khloe Kardashian put a stop to the handouts and high rent payments following Lamar’s overdose. Kardashian had taken control of her estranged husband’s finances while he was incapacitated.
Khloe’s decision caused Lamar’s father, Joe, and his wife, Cecelia, to move into a smaller, much cheaper apartment in Brooklyn, New York.

After months of silence on Lamar Odom’s end following his split with Khloe Kardashian, Odom finally spoke with ET about his failed marriage to Kardashian.
Last April, after watching Kobe Bryant play his final game at the Staples center, the former LA Laker gave an exclusive interview.
Lamar was asked about photos that were taken of him entering a pub accompanied by two male friends and rumors regarding his sobriety.
“I mean, it gets tough, especially if so much gets speculated. Only select few people know the truth, and I just keep that close to my heart.”
Meanwhile, according to TMZ, Dennis Hof, the owner of the Love Ranch, the brothel where Lamar Odom overdosed, is extending an offer to the entire Raiders NFL organization.
Hof is offering 50 percent “sex parties” at the Love Ranch for “all Raiders players and staff” as part of the “Home Team Advantage Sex Package.”
The offering is intended to sweeten the idea of the team potentially moving to Nevada after spending more than 20 years in Oakland.
Given the brothel’s history, the players should probably stay away, but the deal to move the Raiders is not final yet, and anything could happen.
