As Khloe Kardashian stayed by Lamar Odom’s bedside, Kendall Jenner was in the midst of a photo shoot in London, which had the supermodel wrecked with guilt before heading to Vegas, HollywoodLife.com can EXCLUSIVELY reveal.
As Lamar Odom, 35, fought for his life at Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas following his scary hospitalization on Oct. 13, Kendall Jenner, 19, had been working in London on a fashion shoot, which had had her feeling guilty for leaving her family during this difficult time, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned.
“She felt a bit guilty going to work, while Khloe kept vigil by Lamar’s bedside,” the insider tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But she was happy to hear that Lamar is doing better and kept in constant contact with her sisters on the phone while away.”
Kendall was spotted leaving her Oct. 16 shoot in London looking understandably glum, as her older sister Khloe Kardashian, 31, stayed by Lamar’s bedside as he continues to fight for his life. Kendall didn’t feel comfortable being thousands of miles away from home while her family is going through such a tragic ordeal and rushed back to Vegas as soon as she could.
Kendall’s Sweet 16
The source goes on to say that Kendall wouldn’t have left her family had she not already committed to working months before Lamar’s incident. “If she hadn’t made a prior work commitment, she would’ve never have left for London during this time,” the source continues. “She wanted to be there for her family and help out in any way she could.
That’s remarkably grown-up of Kendall, who appears to have taken Lamar’s awful situation to heart. Lamar was found unconscious on Oct. 13 in a Nevada brothel after an alleged overdose. After a few days of Lamar showing no signs of improvement, he woke up from his coma on Oct. 16. He has made remarkable strides, but he’s not out of the woods yet. There’s still a long road to a full recovery.
Meanwhile, a new report has surfaced claiming that Lamar was working hard in the gym and harbored hopes of returning to the NBA.
“I did an interview with a former coach of his, Gary Charles, and he said that Lamar approached him, he wanted to train with him, and he said he wanted to get back personally and professionally,” Ken Baker of E! revealed. The report also said that Lamar was trying to “be in a more healthy place” as he prepared to get back on the basketball court. Let’s hope he can get back on the court soon.
