While Lamar Odom allegedly called his drug dealer to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he is recovering from his ongoing medical crisis, his wife Khloé Kardashian is said to have reduced her trips to the hospital, reports said. In fact, Kardashian was spotted shopping in Los Angeles Monday, according to Us Weekly, as Odom is now stabilized and is out of the intensive care unit (ICU).
"Since Lamar stabilized and moved from the ICU to the inpatient rehabilitation unit, Khloé has visited less," a source told People magazine. "After being by his side 24/7 during his stay in the ICU, it's not strange that she is visiting less. Khloé has behaved like most people do."
Kardashian, who dismissed her divorce with Odom due to his medical condition, was believed to have not left Odom’s bedside until now. Odom was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas on Oct. 13 and is said to have overdosed on cocaine and other drugs.
"It's extremely emotionally draining to have a loved one in the ICU. She gave up her life to make sure that Lamar had everything that he needed," the source also said. "Now when he is better, she is smart to allow herself a break."
Although earlier reports had also suggested that the Los Angeles Lakers star may need a kidney transplant due to failure, doctors reportedly called off the plan, TMZ had reported Friday.
"Lamar continues to fight and does very well with his therapies," People quoted the source as saying. "He is making slow progress and sometimes is frustrated. Khloé always seem to cheer him up. She made a few short visits over the weekend."
Meanwhile, a Hollywood Life report said that Kardashian was thinking whether she should give their relationship another try but she lost all hopes when Odom called his drug dealer to the hospital.
“It became clear to Khloe very quickly after Lamar woke up, and the days went on, that he wasn’t going to be changing any time soon,” a source said, according to the Inquisitr. “Calling his drug dealer to the hospital was the final straw for Khloe.”
Kardashian, who was also reportedly slammed by Odom's friends for dating Houston Rockets player James Harden, had denied reports suggesting that she was getting back together with Odom. According to Hollywood Life, Odom is currently pleading his estranged wife to stay with him and not date Harden.
However, Kardashian has reportedly stopped attending calls from Odom when she is with Harden, with whom she spent time in Houston recently. The report said, citing a source that Kardashian is “checking in with Lamar’s doctors daily, but she is now ignoring Lamar’s calls and texts.”
