Khloe Kardashian is by Lamar Odom’s side this morning as the former Lakers player fights for his life at a Las Vegas hospital.
According to reports, Kardashian was “inconsolable” after learning that Odom was found unresponsive and that the reality star, who was apparently already in Vegas, was rushed to be by his side.
Khloe, who filed for divorce from Odom in December 2013, has always been concerned about her ex-husband’s well being.
During a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, the 31-year-old can be seen checking on Odom to make sure he is ok. “Lamar and I loved each other deeply and I don’t believe in just acting like that relationship never existed,” Kardashian said in the episode. “Things happened but that doesn’t just stop me from caring about him or loving him. So if I feel the need to check on Lamar, that’s my prerogative and I’m going to do it.”
The Nye County Sheriff’s department confirmed in a statement that around 3:15 p.m. on Tuesday, an ambulance was requested “for an unresponsive male experiencing a medical emergency at the Love Ranch in Crystal, Nevada.” Identified as Lamar Odom, the athlete was “stabilized and transported to Desert View Hospital arriving at 4:16 pm.”
According to officials, “After being treated by the physicians, arrangements were made to transport him by Mercy Air helicopter. However, Mr. Odom was unable to be transported by air due to his stature. He was immediately transported by Pahrump Valley Fire and Rescue Ambulance to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada for further treatment.”
Odom is said to have been partying at the Love Ranch since Saturday and apparently had been taking a herbal substitute for Viagra. But the athlete’s rep did release a statement through Us Weekly suggesting that many reports hitting the Web are false.
“Family and friends are extremely concerned for Lamar,” the statement read. “Please don’t listen to the false information being circulated unofficially. Please respect the family’s privacy during this difficult time.”
The former Lakers player’s medical emergency comes after a string of personal woes, including his arrest in August 2013 for suspicion of driving under the influence of alcohol and or drugs. Odom, who recently resurfaced on Instagram, has also been dealing with the loss of two very close friends; one to a flesh eating disease (due to dirty needles) and one to a drug overdose.
Our thoughts are with the 35-year-old.
Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves
To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.
But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.
“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”
In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.
When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”
Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”
Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
