Rob Kardashian wants to step up and donate one of his organs to help save Lamar Odom’s life, a new report claims, but HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned Lamar would never accept Rob’s kidney. Find out why.
Rob Kardashian, 28, may be ready to donate one of his kidneys in order to save Lamar Odom‘s life, but the former basketball player “doesn’t think he could ever take [Rob’s] kidney.” If something bad were to happen with Rob’s surgery, Lamar would never be able to forgive himself and that would be the “end” of him as we know it.

“First and foremost, Lamar loves Rob! Lam can’t express how much love he has for his little brother. Words can’t describe how overjoyed and gracious Lamar is after hearing that Rob wants to donate a kidney for him. That really touched Lam’s heart. While it’s the most generous offer anyone’s ever given Lamar, he doesn’t think he can take Rob’s kidney,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
We were shocked to hear Rob wanted to donate his kidney, but we think it’s incredibly sweet. He obviously still cares a lot about his brother-in-law. However, despite his generous offer, Lamar won’t accept it.
“He wouldn’t want to put Rob and the rest of the Kardashian family through all that stress. If something were to go wrong with Rob’s surgery, that would be the end of Lamar as we know it! He couldn’t live with himself. He could never look Khloe or any of the Kardashian/Jenner women in the face. The buck stops with Lamar! He really feels he’s brought a lot of unwanted energy, stress and negativity into the family and while Rob’s gesture is beyond magical, Lamar doesn’t think he could ever take his kidney,” our source adds.
The former NBA star reportedly needs a kidney transplant and could wait years on a list to receive one, so maybe he should reconsider. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Lamar has been on kidney dialysis since his reported drug overdose on Oct. 13. While in the hospital, Lamar suffered numerous strokes, as well as damage to his lungs and kidneys. And he now needs a kidney transplant.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Should Lamar accept Rob’s kidney?
