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.
No Joke: Bill Cosby Is Back On Stage Doing Stand-Up
We are not trying to shame the elderly, but we are super confused why Bill Cosby is back on stage doing stand-up. He is after all 80-years old and going blind, but apparently that’s all apart of his routine.
Cosby did a set on Monday at LaRose Jazz Club in Philly and poked fun at his visual impairment amongst other personal anecdotes. He didn’t touch his pending trial, but many suspect his resurgence into the public eye is all a ploy to revitalize his image.
Just two weeks ago Cosby attended a dinner with friends and let reporters tag along to ask questions and take photos. This time around Cosby announced on his Facebook that he’d be doing a set a couple hours before. He wore a sweatshirt that said “hello friend” and also played the drums alongside the Tony Williams Jazz Quartet.
Folks in the audience are laughing … so maybe it’s working.
The disgraced comedian’s retrial on sexual assault charges is set to begin in April, and a new jury selection begins at the end of March. He averted a decision this past June when a jury couldn’t agree on a verdict … ending in a mistrial.
