Khloe Kardashian Flew Lamar Odom’s Kids And Dad To Visit Hospital Bedside
Khloe Kardashian flew Lamar Odom’s two teenaged children, Lamar Jr. and Destiny, from New York to Nevada to be by his bedside as the former NBA player fights for his life in a Las Vegas hospital. Gossip Cop additionally hears that Kardashian also arranged for his dad Joe to come from Los Angeles.
Odom and ex-girlfriend Liza Morales were together for a decade before breaking up in 2008. While together, they had three children. The youngest, Jayden, died when he was only six months old from SIDS.
As Gossip Cop reported, Odom was found unresponsive on Tuesday in a Nevada brothel, where he had allegedly been doing crack cocaine and others drugs since Saturday. It’s believed his hard partying mixed with the use of an herbal substitute for Viagra is what caused Odom to become unconscious and suffer multiple strokes, which likely have resulted in irreparable brain damage. The former athlete is currently breathing via a ventilator.
We’re told Kardashian wanted Odom’s kids and father to be near him, both for themselves and for the basketball player, as he battles for his life. Kardashian, of course, extended an olive branch to Joe Odom, who trashed the Kardashians in the past when her husband’s drug problems first came to light in 2013. Joe said at the time, “They don’t give a [expletive] about my son… They brought him down. He’d be better off without them.”
Odom, for his part, later took to Twitter to defend the Kardashians. After tweeting his mostly absentee dad’s “own demons may be the ONLY thing he gave 2 me,” Lamar added of the Kardashians, “They are the ONLY ones that have been here consistently 4 me during this dark time… Say what you want about me but leave the ones who have done nothing but protect and love me out of this.”
