Oh boy. Lamar Odom is demanding a face to face meeting with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian’s new boyfriend James Harden, a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY on Nov. 18. The reason why might surprise you. We have the scoop.
This could spell trouble. Lamar Odom, 36, is insisting that he have an in-person talk with 31-year-old wife Khloe Kardashian‘s new boyfriend James Harden, 26. So why does he want the meeting? HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE answer. Here’s what we know.
Lamar has relied on Khloe heavily since his alleged overdose was reported by TMZ on Oct. 13, and it has built an even stronger love for her. “Lamar is fighting for his life and he’s also fighting for Khloe too,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVLEY on Nov. 18. “He loves her terribly and is scared that his health may ruin any chance of him being with her romantically again.” That is so sad! Khloe has become Lamar’s full-time caretaker, and pretty much only gets to feel normal when she’s with her boyfriend James. Lamar knows that, and he feels like he needs to talk to James about it.
“He loves her so much that he’s asked her to bring James [Harden] to see him,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He wants to look James in his eyes, man to man, and tell him that if he doesn’t fully recover or things take a turn for the worse, he wants James to promise him that he’ll take great care of his wife Khloe and treat her like the queen she is.” Absolutely heart wrenching. Lamar loves Khloe so much that he’s okay with someone else taking care of her!
But that doesn’t mean Khloe likes the idea of her husband sitting down for a chat with her other man. “Khloe doesn’t think that’s a good idea and neither do Lamar’s docs,” the source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “But it’s something he wants to get off his chest.” On top of the meeting being just plain awkward, it could also really upset Lamar. Khloe has been forced to keep things, like the reason for his brain injury, a secret so as not to upset him, and this could set him back. Best of luck in this sticky situation, Khloe!
