Khloe Kardashian revealed on Nov. 12 that her loving family begged her to take a break from caring for Lamar Odom. After watching her sit diligently by his side for nearly a month, the Kardashian Klan feared for her mental health and pushed her to leave. We have the details.
Poor Khloe Kardashian! Her endless doting on estranged husband Lamar Odom, 36, has the 31-year-old’s family concerned. Now, she admitted on Nov. 12 that the whole Kardashian fam had to beg her to leave the former baller’s hospital bedside, and it was no easy feat to get her back into the world. Here’s what we know.
When Lamar allegedly overdosed in a Nevada brothel and ended up fighting for his life in the hospital, Khloe selflessly vowed to stay by his side no matter what. She put her entire life on hold, including her divorce, relationship with James Harden, and her book tour, to be with Lamar. However, her tight-knit family began to fear for her own well-being. “Just recently I’ve been in the hospital for almost three-and-a-half weeks straight,” said Khloe to the San Diego Union-Tribune. “And finally everyone was saying, ‘Khloe, you have to get out of the hospital and do something that’s for you.’”
Though leaving her disabled husband’s side was a major struggle for Khloe, her family’s insistence worked wonders for her. “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,'” said Khloe. “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.” We’re so glad that Khloe finally found time for herself, and that she isn’t feeling guilty about it. We’re glad to see that she’s been getting back to normal life, with a visit to The Ellen DeGeneres Show and a date night with James. Hopefully things will just keep getting better for her!
