Khloe — no one would have faulted you if you had taken a hands-off approach to Lamar’s life-threatening medical crisis. But instead, you have been his angel and have done everything impressively right.
Khloe Kardashian, you are truly Lamar Odom‘s guardian angel. Despite the fact that you are mere months away from officially divorcing the former NBA star, you rushed to his hospital bedside the moment that you heard he was unconscious and fighting for his life. You, your mom Kris Jenner and sister Kim Kardashian chartered a private plane to fly to Las Vegas so that you could reach him and do whatever it would take to save his life.
Once there, you didn’t hesitate to take on the responsibility of his medical care. As his still legal wife , you were his next of kin and therefore charged with making incredibly difficult medical decisions. But this is no doubt what you wanted to do, because you still cared so much about the man that you married on Sept. 27, 2009. You were “inconsolable” when you learned about the gravity of Lamar’s condition. His heart, lungs and kidneys were failing and he was in a coma from which he would possibly never wake up.
“She’s beside herself and absolutely doesn’t want this to end badly. She’s not left Lamar’s bedside since she arrived and doesn’t intend to. She’s there, standing over him…this is incredibly painful for her. It’s like she’s living in a nightmare,” a source close to the family told Hollywoodlife.com exclusively about you. Of course this has been a nightmare for you, but you have handled this terrible situation with fortitude and honor.
You have done everything right, from flying in expert doctors to consult on his condition to jetting in his father, Joe Odom, and his ex-wife Liza Morales with Lamar’s two children, Destiny, 17, and Lamar Jr., 13, so they could also be by his side. This was the right thing to do. You haven’t always been on the best of terms with either Joe or Liza, for many good reasons, but nevertheless, you welcomed them to the hospital with open arms.
Khloe Kardashian Made Amends With Lamar Odom’s Family
Khloe, you hugged Joe “and fell into his arms. All he could do was hug her as he trembled and cried himself”, an insider told Hollywoodlife.com. You made Liza, Destiny and Lamar Jr. so comfortable that you all formed a half circle around Lamar’s bed at one point and each told him how much you all loved him and wanted him to come back to you. That was a truly beautiful thing to do. Then you comforted both Destiny and Lamar Jr.
You have even used this terrible time to bond with Liza Morales, Lamar’s ex. It’s not unusual for a second wife to have some issues with the first, but in the agony of this situation, you and Liza both realized that any problems you ever had meant nothing. You two apologized to each other, according to an insider source, and you hugged it out. Khloe, you have been the most devoted friend and “wife” to Lamar, 35. You slept by his side on the hospital floor and have made his wellbeing and recovery your top and only priority.
During the 6 years that you’ve been married, you’ve always acted in Lamar’s best interests and have never stopped loving him, despite the terrible problems that he has had and the agonies he’s put you through. Khloe, 31, never have you demonstrated more what a strong, compassionate and honorable human being you are. When Lamar woke up from his coma, the first person he saw was you. He must have felt overjoyed. He told you, “Hey, babe,” and gave you a thumbs-up. It appears that your prayers and devotion have been answered. We all hope, along with you, that Lamar has a full and speedy recovery.
Hollywoodlifers — are you so impressed by how strong and compassionate Khloe has been? Let me know.
