Since Lamar Odom was admitted to the hospital after an alleged overdose on Oct. 13, Khloe Kardashian has not left his side. As he continues to fight for his life, HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Lamar thinks Khloe’s love has been his saving grace.
After Lamar Odom, 35, was given a 50/50 chance to live after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, things looked bleak. But with the support of his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, 31, who has been by his side the whole time, he pulled through. While Lamar is still fighting, Lamar believes it has been Khloe’s love that has kept him alive.
“Lamar knows Khloe’s right there by his side. Every time he wakes up, open his eyes or even moves, she’s right there and he‘s forever grateful. Lamar’s always been in love with Khloe but it is super apparent on his face as he lay in the hospital,” an insider revealed to HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “Even the doctors have witnessed this. Khloe’s love is keeping him alive and while Lamar can’t speak this, the possibility of him reuniting with Khloe is on his mind. It just is. It has to be. He‘s fighting not only for his life, but for his wife and marriage.”
Just before Lamar woke from his coma on Oct. 16, Khloe told him “I love you,” which was reportedly what sparked a response from him. Since waking, Lamar’s organs have continued to fail and he is struggling to walk. Khloe helped move Lamar from Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital to Cedar-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, where doctors have started him on dialysis for his failing kidneys. While his condition still isn’t incredibly promising, Khloe has yet to give up on him.
Although Lamar can’t completely express his love to Khloe, apparently the time they have spent together during his crisis has convinced her to reconcile things with him — on Oct. 21, TMZ reported that Khloe and Lamar requested to call their divorce off. Khloe and Lamar initially filed for divorce nearly two years ago, but clearly love is still there between them.
It is truly amazing to see the amount of love Khloe has shown for Lamar through such a difficult time. She has promised to remain by Lamar’s side through his recovery, and considering where she has gotten him thus far, we certainly hope her love will continue to keep him alive.
