Los Angeles Lakers player Lamar Odom’s wife Khloé Kardashian is willing to relaunch divorce proceedings if Odom gives even the slightest hint of returning to drugs, TMZ reported Monday, citing sources. Khloé -- who attended her elder sister Kim’s baby shower on Sunday -- has been staying with the Lakers star at the Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles and the two also decided to dismiss their divorce last week.
The TMZ report added that Odom’s medical bills are in millions and he is on the health insurance policy of the Kardashians. Khloé, 31, and Odom, 35, tied the knot in 2009. The couple signed their divorce papers in July this year. At the time, Khloé was dating Houston Rockets player James Harden. However, amid Odom’s continuing medical crisis, she has ended that relationship too.
Meanwhile, Dennis Hof, the owner of Love Ranch brothel in Las Vegas, where Odom was found unconscious on Oct. 13, denied a TMZ report that claimed one of the prostitutes with a drug problem was sent to Khloé's husband.
Hof said he completes background checks for all his employees and he doesn’t hire people with drug problems, TMZ reported late Sunday. He also clarified that if Odom took drugs at the brothel, he must have brought them to the place himself. Odom is suspected to have overdosed on cocaine and other drugs before he was found unconscious at the brothel.
The Sunday report by TMZ alleged that when Odom arrived at the place, the girls were lined up so that he could choose his partners. The report cited one of the girls working at the Love Ranch as saying that the management pushed Odom to go for two particular girls who were known to tolerate drug use. The other girls standing there were apparently not happy with the decision of sending those who could take Odom down a wrong path, TMZ reported.
According to TMZ, many prostitutes at the brothel quit in protest, including one who believes that Odom would not have been in the current medical crisis had he chosen someone else. The two girls who were with Odom have been since suspended for lying to the management about drug use in Odom’s room.
