Khloé Kardashian desperately wants to move her estranged husband Lamar Odom to Los Angeles as the former NBA player remains in coma in a hospital in Las Vegas. Odom was found unconscious and bleeding from the mouth and nose at Love Ranch South, a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada, on Tuesday.
Khloé, who is in charge of Odom’s medical care despite signing divorce papers in July, remained by his side at Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital & Medical Center, while her mother Kris Jenner and sister Kim Kardashian flew back home to Los Angeles Thursday.
“Khloé wants Lamar in Los Angeles because she wants to get him into the city he loves with the amazing doctors that are at Cedars Sinai,” a source told Hollywood Life. “She loves everything that Sunrise has done for him already but feels that if he is in LA, he will get amazing care and his family and friends will be near to visit him at all times.”
Odom’s condition has not improved since his hospitalization and he continues to be on life support, with some reports saying he is brain dead.
"It's hard for Khloé. He is on his last leg," another source told People magazine. "Everyone wanted to hope for the best, but nothing has changed. Now they are preparing for the worst.”
Meanwhile, Entertainment Tonight reported Thursday that Odom showed slight improvement as he squeezed Kim’s hand during her visit to the hospital. However, the Kardashians and the Odoms have not issued any statement on Odom’s current health condition.
Odom’s two children with his ex-girlfriend, Liza Morales, issued a statement Thursday. "Thanks for your outpouring of prayers and support for our dad. We are here with our family and friends. We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy at this time. We ask for your continued prayers,” Destiny, 17, and Lamar Jr., 13, said in a joint statement to CNN.
Odom, who reportedly has a net worth of $30 million and a life insurance policy of $10 million, took cocaine and as many as 10 sexual-performance pills, according to reports Wednesday. He used cocaine just days before he was found unconscious.
"Khloé has been getting advice from Kris [Jenner] and Caitlyn [Jenner] nonstop. She’s getting lots of love and support from both of them. Kris has also had Khloe consult with their family attorney as well as getting second opinions from their family doctor. Everyone is supporting her,” another source told Hollywood Life.
