“She’s totally focused on being there for Khloé right now,” a source told E! News. The whole family was supposed to come together to celebrate the impending birth of Kim’s second child this weekend. But there was no way this was going to happen with Lamar being in the hospital. The theme was going to be Troop Beverly Hills and was going to be held by Kim’s friend Allison Azoff at her family’s Beverly Hills’ estate, which is where Khloe and Lamar got married in 2009.
Lamar was found unconscious in his room at the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, on Oct. 13. After a chilling 911 call was placed from the brothel, Lamar was rushed to the hospital. He allegedly used crack cocaine during a four-day bender before his hospitalization. He reportedly cried to hookers over his “broken” life and losing Khloe during his stay.
Khloe, Kim, Caitlyn Jenner, 65, Kourtney Kardashian, 36, Kris Jenner, 59, Lamar’s kids and ex Liza Morales, 36, are all by Lamar’s side in the Vegas hospital. Since being hospitalized, Lamar has reportedly had multiple strokes and his vital organs, including his heart and kidneys, are failing. Khloe is making all the medical decisions for Lamar since they are still legally married. Look back on their happier times now.
Lamar’s family and friends are holding out hope that he’ll pull through, but they understand what could lie ahead. “[The Kardashians are] pretty sure this is goodbye, but they’re praying for a miracle,” a source told 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.”
Lamar’s father, Joe Odom, has also arrived to the hospital. HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY that Khloe burst into tears and fell into Joe’s arms upon his arrivals. “She hugged him and fell into his arms. All he could do was hug her as he trembled and cried himself. It was very emotional, especially for Joe,” a source told us.
Our thoughts are with Lamar’s family and friends during this troubling time. We are praying for his full recovery.
