Khloe Kardashian, you have been Lamar’s guardian angel ever since he was raced to the hospital unconscious and barely breathing. But even though you are committed to being there for the ‘long haul’, don’t give up your entire future for him.
Khloe Kardashian, you have been the most loving wife to Lamar Odom that he could ever have. Not to mention that you were just a couple of months short of becoming his ex-spouse. Your divorce papers have already been signed and you’ve been just waiting for a judge to finalize them. Nevertheless, your continuing love for Lamar has compelled you and your family to do everything possible to save his life, and now to regain his health.
But Khloe, 31, as much as you’ve been totally and necessarily focused on pulling Lamar from the brink of death, you mustn’t forget what is right for you and your life. You are wonderful to remain by his side now in LA as he fights pneumonia and kidney failure. “Khloe is determined to heal Lamar all the way through,” an insider tells Hollywoodlife.com exclusively. “Doctors have told her Lamar’s going to need an extensive amount of rehabilitation…she’s in this to the very end…she’s told Lamar and her family that she wants to do this – that she needs to this – for Lamar and for herself. It’s her calling. Lamar needs her more than ever and at the same time, she needs him too.”
Khloe, that is incredibly selfless. Lamar has suffered from addiction issues for the past few years and he cheated on you multiple times while under the influence of those addictions. You tried to get him help for a long time before you separated, and even after you moved out, you gave him years to get his act together before you finally initiated the last stages of divorce. You did this because you loved Lamar so much. When you recited your wedding vows on Sept. 27, 2009, you took them fully to heart.
Khloe Kardashian Putting James Harden On The Back Burner?
Now, it’s so clear that you are still taking them to heart every single day, as you sit by Lamar’s bedside and consult with his doctors to get him the best possible medical care. You have been unrelenting in your devotion, flying in his dad, Joe Odom, ex-wife Liza Morales and children, Destiny, 17, and Lamar Jr., 13, to be by his side, in Las Vegas. Now, we hear through our insiders that you have put your romance with Houston Rockets NBA star James Harden, 26, on hold. “Her entire focus is on Lamar…Khloe simply can’t focus on James right now…She doesn’t want to break his heart, but Khloe’s already put that relationship on the back burner,” the insider tells us.
Khloe, that’s totally understandable. You are dealing with far too much to worry about a fledgling romance. But on the other hand, don’t put everything else in your life on an indefinite hold. Lamar’s recovery and physical rehabilitation could take months — maybe even a year. Plus, he probably will also need to go to rehab for his addictions at some point. You can’t forget what got him into this terribly life-threatening situation. He went on a huge bender. His addiction demon has not been tamed in the least. You don’t want to deal with that for the rest of your life, no matter how much you love the man.
Khloe Kardashian: Lamar Odom Can Never Be The Man You Need
Khloe, you can give and give and give, but until Lamar, 35, is ready to dedicate himself to being sober, he can never be the husband and man you ultimately need. So Khloe, continue to do all you can to help Lamar recover from his terrible near-death experience. He is so lucky to have you. But don’t rule out ever finding love with another man just yet, and don’t stop continuing to grow your career. Your own talk show, Kocktails with Khloe, is still due to debut on Dec. 9. Don’t cancel that. Just as Lamar needs to have a future, so do you.
Do you agree, Hollywoodlifers — should Khloe not give up everything else in her life as she nurses Lamar? Let me know.
