This is so intense. Long before Lamar Odom fell into critical condition and was fighting for his life, Khloe Kardashian vowed she would take care of his children, if something were to happen to him. We have the heart wrenching details.
Khloe Kardashian, 31, told Lamar Odom, 35, that she would tend to his two children, if anything were to happen to their father. Lamar, who is currently in a coma in Nevada after being found unconscious inside a brothel, shares the kids, Destiny Odom, 17, and Lamar Odom Jr., 13, with his ex Liza Morales, 36. When Khloe and Lamar were still married, Khloe said of the children, “I got [them],” according to an old interview Lamar gave back in 2012. You can read the whole devastating interview inside.

“I think two to three weeks [into our relationship], [Khloe] said, ‘Lamar, you know what? Anything ever happens to you, I got your kids,'” Lamar told People in 2012. “They’re always going to be all right.’ That meant so much,” he added of his then-wife.
Wow, very heavy stuff. Lamar’s children are obviously a huge part of his life, especially given that he and Liza had another child, Jayden, who sadly died in 2006 at just one year old. Khloe, it seems, understood how important Lamar’s children were to him, and Lamar knew that.
Since being hospitalized, Destiny, Liza and Lamar Jr. have each arrived at the hospital to be by their father and ex’s side, respectively.
“She’s just thorough. If she has your back she’s going to follow you the whole way through,” Lamar said in that same interview. “There’s not a tough time or any situation that’s going to deter her or turn her off from what you going through. If she has your back and she’s down with you, she’s down with you. I’ve experienced that time after time after time.”
We are sending so much love and strength to Lamar, as well as his children and family.
