Clearly devastated to learn of Lamar Odom’s worsening condition, Kendall Jenner cancelled her appearance at Shanghai fashion week in order to join her family at her brother-in-law’s bedside on Oct. 14.
Poor Kendall Jenner. The 19-year-old model was stuck halfway across the world working at Shanghai Fashion Week when she received news that her brother-in-law Lamar Odom, 35, was fighting for his life in a Nevada hospital. Clearly concerned for his recovery, Kendall reportedly cancelled her immediate commitments and jetted from Shanghai to Las Vegas on Oct. 14 to be at his bedside, along with the rest of the Kardashian family.
Kendall was spotted touching down in Las Vegas on Oct. 14, at which point she was escorted to black SUV presumably on its way to the Sunrise Hospital where Lamar remains intubated and in a coma. Having been stuck in Shanghai for work, Kendall was forced to deal with the news of Lamar’s tragic condition on her own while the rest of her family was able to come together by his bedside. Devastated, Kendall turned to Twitter to share a cryptic message seemingly begging her former brother-in-law to hold on and keep fighting. “Please don’t go,” read the heart-wrenching tweet, which in light of the situation, seems to be directed at Larmar, who is currently fighting for his life in the hospital.
Lamar is in very critical condition at this time, and is reportedly experiencing heart failure, as well as problems with several of his other organs, including his lungs and kidneys. Sadly, things aren’t looking good for the former NBA star, who doctors believed has just a 50/50 chance of survival after suffering several strokes since being admitted. In light of his worsening condition, Kourtney Kardashian, 36, and her family are now preparing to say their final goodbyes to Lamar.
“[The Kardashians are] pretty sure this is goodbye, but they’re praying for a miracle,” a source close to the Kardashian family tells People magazine. “They know that God has the power to heal him, but that’s really the last hope at this point. This is really bad.”
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Lamar was found unconscious in a brothel room in Nevada on Oct. 13. He was taking an herbal substitute for Viagara throughout his trip, according to reports, and when he was discovered, there was liquid running out of his mouth. Since then, it’s been reported that Lamar is suffering from a drug overdose.“Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system,” a source told E! News. The source went on to explain that doctors at Sunrise Hospital are treating the situation as an “overdose,” adding that there “likely is brain damage, but they’re not sure how much.” At this time, Lamar remains unconscious and breathing only with the help of a ventilator.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Lamar and his loved ones during this difficult time.
