In October 2015, it was reported that Lamar Odom had overdosed on drugs at a brothel in Las Vegas. The Kardashians were immediately on their way to the hospital as Odom was near death. According to TMZ, Odom had track marks on his arms and drugs were found in his system. He was found unconscious and was reported to have suffered several strokes as a result of the drugs. A hospital MRI revealed that Odom was also on 3-5 hour dialysis for kidney failure.
Since the incident, Odom’s condition has greatly improved though a great deal of damage has been done to his body. On January 15, 2016 on Live! With Kelly and Michael, Khloe Kardashian revealed:
It was terrifying and scary. No one knew what was going to happen. And what’s crazy is because he’s an athlete, I really think having so many years of working out every single day — he wasn’t even walking three weeks ago, and now he’s walking … So I’m happy for him and how he’s trying, and he’s really making great strides. And that’s a testament to his own will and desire to get better.
Kardashian also revealed that her decision to chop off her locks was after spending so much time in the hospital with Odom. She said that:
I cut all my hair off because I was in the hospital ad I just felt like I needed — like once I got out of there for a minute, I was like, ‘I need to get rid of this negativity.’
Throughout the course of their marriage, Odom continued to cheat on Khloe Kardashian. Even so, she jumped to be right there at his side when he suffered this health crisis.
So, will we ever see the incident play out on Keeping Up With the Kardashians? Though the Kardashians are a very open family, this is something that viewers may never see. They may talk about it on the show, but it’s highly doubtful that any footage of the incident will be shown, which is quite understandable. After all, Khloe Kardashian has revealed in the past that Odom didn’t want the negative aspects of their relationship aired on the show. We would assume that this is definitely not a moment in his life that he’d like to relive.
Khloe Kardashian is currently reported to still be dating athlete boyfriend James Harden though she is legally married to Lamar Odom.
