Khloé Kardashian wants you to know that she’s not trying to get more press out of Lamar Odom’s hospitalization.

After appearing on the cover of this week’s People magazine to discuss the true status of her relationship with her estranged husband, Kardashian, 31, received plenty of public backlash for allegedly using the 35-year-old basketball player’s recent health problems to gain more attention.

Naturally, Kardashian took to Twitter to defend herself, lashing at at those accusing her of being hungry for fame and clarifying that the interview and photo shoot was done before Odom was found unconscious as a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13.

In her lengthy rant, Kardashian explained that the quotes about Odom were added into the initial interview after a follow-up with the publication. The reality star, who recently announced that she was canceling her book tour for Strong Looks Better Naked to be with Odom as he continues to undergo treatment in Los Angeles, said that she only took the interview because she was contactually obligated to.

In the much talked-about article, Kardashian revealed her relationship of Odom is “not anything sexual or intimate” at the moment despite the fact that the former couple have recently called off their divorce.

“There are too many other important things, too many medical things. It’s not even in our brains thinking about us as a couple or having a relationship right now,” she said. “I want to be his support system. Tragedy does make you reassess a lot of things, but when it comes to our relationship, it’s the same, except I’m here supporting him fully.”

According to recent reports, Odom was tested positive for cocaine after he was rushed to the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas. The former NBA star reportedly suffered as many as 12 strokes during the medical crisis, which were said to have affected his communication skills and his mobility as well as shut down his kidneys.
