The day after Lamar Odom was raced to the hospital for a drug overdose, his father Joe Odom was spotted at Destination XL a store in Las Vegas that sells clothing for big and tall men. Since Lamar is 6’10 it’s safe to assume this is for him and it could be that Joe is preparing for the worst.
Lamar Odom, 35, is fighting for his life and it appears his father, Joe Odom is doing everything he can to plan for the the horrific chance his son may not make it. Joe raced to be by Lamar’s bedside on Oct. 13 but the following day he was photographed buying a suit. It’s unclear who it was for but considering it’s in Las Vegas where Lamar’s hospital is located and given the timing, that it’s either for himself or Lamar.
When we spoke to someone at the store they wouldn’t confirm what Joe bought or who it was for. Our own source tell us that “Joe had no clothes” when he got to Vegas so that’s why he stopped by. What we do know is that Khloe Kardashian hasn’t left Lamar’s bedside in days and that she’s actually sleeping in a sleeping bag on the floor in the ICU. Kim Kardashian, Kris Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner left Vegas on Oct. 15 because Kim had an important doctor’s appointment but we are assuming they will head back.
We know that Lamar’s condition hasn’t improved very much and that several of his organs are failing, including his heart and kidneys. Lamar reportedly “fluttered” his eyes while in a coma and squeezed Khloe’s hand but it might have just been an involuntary movement. There have been reports that the family said their goodbyes and that’s also why Khloe flew his ex, Liza Morales and their two children, Destiny and Lamar Odom Jr. out to Vegas to see their dad. We are hoping for the best but preparing for the worst.
HollywoodLifers, our thoughts go out to Lamar’s family and friends.
