Lamar Odom has found himself between his rock, Khloe Kardashian and his family. As the former NBA star fights to save his life, he’s also fighting to to bring peace between his wife and his relatives. Read on for all the EXCLUSIVE details.
In addition to getting healthy, Lamar Odom, 35, can add one more task to his list of things to do. Confined to a hospital room, the former NBA great is now playing peacemaker between his family who have been butting heads with his wife, Khloe Kardashian, 31, HollywoodLife.com is EXCLUSIVELY reporting.
Things don’t seem to be getting easier for Lamar. As TMZ reports, his father, Joe Odom, says Khloe’s not letting him visit Lamar at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. And now, the former sixth man of the year is caught in the middle of his family’s issues with Khloe. “Lamar’s trying to play peacemaker,” a source close to him reveals to HollywoodLife.com. “Lam’s family doesn’t like how much influence and control Khloe’s got over certain situations. [Lamar’s] trying to convey to her things that his family’s telling him,” the source adds, “and all she’s doing is telling him to focus on his getting better. It’s like she doesn’t want to hear his family’s input. It’s frustrating.”
It appears as if some of the tension between Lamar’s family has driven a rift between he and Khloe. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Lam apparently tossed Khloe out of his hospital room! An insider revealed to Us Weekly that the reality television star allegedly kept Lamar’s children from seeing him, despite her being the one forked over the dough so they could visit. Lamar apparently got an ear full from his family about how Khloe had been treating them and that’s what led to him getting angry. “Lamar said he needed space and wanted to be alone,” the source Us. “He told her to get out.”
HollywoodLifers, should Lamar should be playing peacemaker from his hospital bed? O r should Khloe and his family work it out without bothering him?
