So sweet. As Lamar Odom continues to fight for his life while in a coma, Kylie Jenner has broken her silence, and shared an adorable throwback photo with her former brother-in-law on Instagram with an emotional message. Read it here.
Kylie Jenner, 18, is begging fans to pray for Lamar Odom. The 35-year-old remains unconscious with his organs failing in a Nevada hospital, and Kylie, like the rest of her family, is distraught over his condition. Read her sweet message to Khloe Kardashian’s estranged husband here.
In an adorable Instagram snap, Lamar and a young Kylie throw their hands up while dancing in what appears to be a convertible. “Let’s dance together again soon,” she captioned the shot. “Prayers up for Lamar please.” So sad. Kylie and Khloe have always been very close, so we can imagine that she had a good relationship with Lamar while the two were married.
The 18-year-old was actually in the middle of doing a live stream on her website when she got the news that Lamar had been found unconscious at a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13. She, understandably, ended the video chat abruptly, and on Oct. 15, she was photographed heading to the hospital in Las Vegas to be with her family as they sit by L.O’s bedside. The former basketball player’s ex, Liza Morales, and two kids, Destiny and Lamar Jr., have also arrived at the hospital.
Kylie isn’t the first Kardashian family member to take to social media after this tragic turn of events. Rob Kardashian, who uses Twitter and Instagram very rarely, uploaded a cute photo of himself with Lamar, which he captioned, “Praying nonstop for my Brother!!” Rob lived with Khloe and Lamar while they were married, and he was super close to the former L.A. Lakers player, so we can only imagine how difficult this is for him. Kris Jenner, 59, also urged fans to keep Lamar in their thoughts. “Please pray for Lamar. Our fighter.”
As for the latest on Lamar, things are reportedly looking a little better. “There have been a few encouraging moments,” ET reports. “Including when Odom briefly fluttered his eyes and squeezed Kim’s hand.” Still, Lamar’s condition remans critical, and with some of his major organs failing, there’s definitely a long road ahead.
