This is truly shocking. Khloe Kardashian has revealed that Lamar Odom still doesn’t know exactly what caused him to be bedridden in a hospital. Not only that but Khloe doesn’t want to tell him and crush his spirits. We have all of the heart wrenching details.
Another Lamar Odom health shocker was revealed by Khloe Kardashian, 31, on Nov. 13. While she has been nursing the 36-year-old back to health, staying by his side while doctors teach him to walk and form sentences, she’s been forced to carry a terrible secret. Lamar still doesn’t know what caused the traumatic brain injury that has turned his world upside down, and she can’t tell him. Here’s what we know.
Khloe stopped by for a chat with Ellen DeGeneres on Nov. 13 to promote her book Strong Looks Better Naked, but it wasn’t long before the conversation turned to her embattled husband Lamar. The information that she shared was truly heart breaking. “He has such a long way to go. He’s learning how to walk again and feed himself again and put sentences together, and cognitively there’s a lot. It’s a long, long road ahead.” This is the first time Khloe has really acknowledged just how extreme Lamar’s injuries are and how much rehabilitation he needs. But what’s sadder than that is the secret Khloe has been forced to keep.
Ellen asked Khloe if Lamar is frustrated, or if he knows what happened to him, to which she said “well I can’t tell him. We tell him he has a brain injury, we can’t tell him how that injury was caused because it’ll set him back. He’s never asked why he’s here, yeah, he doesn’t ask.” Honestly, at this point, Khloe is a saint. She originally asked for a divorce because of his drug problems and cheating on her, but when Lamar allegedly overdosed on drugs in a brothel, she ran to his side to care for him. Furthermore, she can’t even talk to him about it, or really be upset because he supposedly doesn’t know what he did. For her to just put all of that aside and just love and care for him unconditionally is just a truly beautiful, selfless act, and we have nothing but respect for her strength.
