Oh my goodness! Khloe Kardashian was an absolute wreck before Lamar Odom made his first public appearance at Kanye West’s NYFW show. Now we’re learning exactly how hard it was on her via a new clip from ‘KUWTK.’
What a trooper! Khloe Kardashian, 31, put on a brave face when she brought Lamar Odom, 36, to the Yeezy Season 3 show back in Feb, but she was way more stressed out about it than she let on. In a clip from May 8’s Keeping Up With The Kardashians, she reveals how she was an anxiety riddled mess about bringing him to New York for his first public appearance since his near fatal drug overdose!
Khloe and Lamar are seen on a private plane where she asks him how his therapy went and he gives a casual “good,” before going back to reading a newspaper. “You’re just chillin’, right? You don’t have anxiety. Only I do, great,” Khloe snaps at him, clearly trying to get him to open up more.
In a confessional she reveals, “I’ve decided to go to New York with Lamar because I think this is something he truly wants to do, and at the end of the day I want Lamar to be happy. I still feel a ton of anxiety and pressure, but if this makes him happy and I can keep him safe, then that’s a match made in heaven.”
“I’m nervous, this is nerve-racking. You haven’t been in public, ever!” she tells him, clearly referring to the fact that he hadn’t been out in public since he early died from a drug overdose in Oct. 2015 that left him comatose for days.
She pleads with him that, “I have more anxiety than you do I’m sure, but it’s because I don’t think you understand…” when Lamar jumps in and says “I can understand.” But Koko really wants to get her point across, telling him “I know you want to go and I know all that, but it’s a lot I’m saying. ” It’s so sweet how she worries and cares about Lamar like that after all they’ve been through.
As we all know, things went off without a hitch and Lamar made his grand entrance to Madison Square Garden alongside Kanye West, 38, for his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show. Ye even walked Lamar over to his seat among the Kardashian family and all was right with the world again!
HollywoodLifers, do you think Khloe had reasons to worry about Lamar’s first public appearance since his overdose? Or did he seem okay to you.
