Don’t expect a Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom reconciliation just yet. In Us Weekly’s new cover story, the tense ins and outs of the estranged spouses’ current relationship are uncovered.
Odom, 35, who is still recovering in L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai hospital after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13, has been hearing some negative things about his famous ex from those closest to him. One Odom family source asserts to Us that Kardashian, 31, kept the former Lakers star’s kids from visiting their father. As previously reported, the reality star was the one who paid for his family to fly to his hospital bedside.
Though Odom’s estranged wife has stuck with him throughout, reports of her using his condition to elevate her own fame and keeping his family away from him reached a head on Oct. 23.
“Lamar said he needed space and wanted to be alone,” a source tells Us. “He told her to get out.”
A source close to the Strong Looks Better Naked author denies that Odom ever told her to “get out” or that she has been controlling who visits her ex in the hospital.
The reality star, who put their divorce on hold and postponed her book tour once her the basketball pro was hospitalized, did temporarily leave to spend some time with her sisters and reconnect with her boyfriend, James Harden. But she returned soon after despite Odom’s supposed request.
Kardashian is “focused on making sure Lamar is stabilized,” a close source tells Us.
