Khloé Kardashian Still Has ‘A Great Deal of Love’ for Lamar Odom

Your new favorite author Khloé Kardashian has a few more things to say about her relationship status with Lamar Odom.

In the December/January issue of Redbook, the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star says after everything that’s happened, she has great aspirations Lamar.

“My biggest wish is for him to be happy,” she tells the magazine.

“I still have a great deal of love for him. That doesn’t mean I have to be by his side all the time.”

Elsewhere in the Redbook interview, Khloé also addresses the attention she’s received for dating NBA player James Harden. The couple have remained together throughout Lamar’s ordeal.

“Our family brings a different amount of — not fame — attention. Instead of just being known for his talent, he’s now known for being someone’s boyfriend. We’re used to it, but for a person new to this, I’m like, ‘Oh, God. I’m sorry.’”

Lamar, who just turned 36 last week, was hospitalized in Nevada in mid-October after being found unconscious at a brothel. He was transferred to a Los Angeles hospital after spending four days in a coma.

Earlier this week, Khloé revealed more details about Lamar’s recovery process to NBC News.

“[He’s doing better every day for sure — which is a blessing — but it’s going to be a long road. And he has to walk that road. He has to walk that road, it’s going to be a long time.”

According to the 31-year-old reality TV star, she’s been updating Lamar on things from the outside world as much as she can.

“He doesn’t have social media. He doesn’t have his cell phone, he doesn’t watch the news or anything like that, so he is aware from what I tell him or the messages that I give him — all positive and filtered things of course.”

Khloe also said that she’s “still married for a multitude of reasons. But intimacy is not one of them.”
