Kim Kardashian Preparing to Say Goodbye to Lamar Odom Leads Today’s Star Sightings
The Kardashian family are rushing to Lamar Odom’s bedside during his time of need.
Soon after word got out that the basketball player had been hospitalized after he was found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel, Kim Kardashian joined sister Khloé Kardashian, who is still legally married to Lamar despite filing for divorce in late 2013, to see him.
Clad in head-to-toe black, Kim was seen arriving at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Wednesday (Oct. 14, 2015). The reality star was accompanied by mom Kris Jenner and siblings Kourtney Kardashian and Kendall Jenner for the daytime visit.
Khloé also reportedly flew Lamar’s two children from a previous relationship — Destiny Odom and Lamar Odom Jr. — and Lamar’s ex, Liza Morales, to Las Vegas.
According to People, Lamar’s family and friends are being gathered to prepare to say their final farewells.
“They’re pretty sure this is goodbye, but they’re praying for a miracle,” a source said. “They know that God has the power to heal him, but that’s really the last hope at this point. This is really bad.”
“He never signed a living will, so Khloé is making [medical] decisions for him,” the source added, explaining that it’s all “very stressful” for the TV star and that “she is lost.”
As Celebuzz previously reported, Khloé is “inconsolable” as Lamar lies comatose in a hospital bed and breathing through the aid of a machine. Lamar, who had a public screaming match with Khloé when he ambushed her outside of a SoulCycle in Los Angeles this August, is said to have likely suffered brain damage as a result of an “ischemic stroke.”
Though Dennis Hof, the owner of the cathouse where Lamar’s unconscious body was discovered, claims that the star athlete was only taking “herbal Viagra,” recent reports say that traces of “cocaine and opiates” were found in Lamar’s system and the hospital is treating him for an “overdose.” Track marks have also been found on Lamar’s arm.
Richard Hunter, the media director of Love Ranch South who made the 911 phone call, described to the emergency service operator that he and two other employees discovered a white substance running out of Lamar’s nose and mouth when they found him.
“Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system,” one source told E! News.
“He was doing crack cocaine all weekend and he choked on his mucus,” the source explained. “They’re now having to fix all the damage it has done.”
