Sources have come forward claiming the Season 10 finale of E!'s "Keeping Up With the Kardashians," which aired Sunday night, may have been linked to Lamar Odom's recent hospitalization. It has been reported that Odom, 35, seemed "chill" when he arrived at Love Ranch South, in Pahrump, Nevada, but all that changed after he received a phone call about the episode. This information has left many wondering what about "KUWTK" episode 17 could have set him off.
While a majority of the show centered around the end of Kourtney Kardashian and Scott Disick's 9 year relationship, Khloé Kardashian also made several appearances on camera. At one point during the episode she was shown standing in the kitchen of her mother Kris Jenner's home taking a phone call from Odom. Kim Kardashian stood nearby looking on in disapproval. After Khloé, 30, got off the phone with her ex-husband, Kim, 34, began questioning her about their relationship and accusing her of having been flirtatious. Later in the episode Khloé got yet another phone call from Odom, this time to deliver some tragic news. The former Los Angeles Lakers star shares with his former wife that his best friend Jamie Sangothai, who made several appearances on "KUWTK" and "Khloé and Lamar" throughout the years, had died. She offered as much support as she possibly could, revealing to viewers that she worried he may spiral out of control after losing his childhood friend.
"I'm always gonna be there for Lamar, especially when something as tragic as this happens," she said.
On Wednesday reports surfaced claiming the episode was the catalyst to Odom's hospitalization. He is said to have grown irritated after being called about the show and stayed that way until a Love Ranch South worker found him unresponsive. Although it has yet to be confirmed, stories have stated that he was unhappy with his portrayal on the series.
Odom was hospitalized Tuesday shortly after 3 p.m. He was reportedly staying at Love Ranch South for several days before an employee found him unconscious in his room. The woman recently revealed that upon turning Odom over she noticed a mucus-like substance coming from his nose and mouth. It has not yet been determined whether or not drugs or alcohol played a role in his current condition. It has been reported that he was taking an herbal form of Viagra during his time at the brothel. A partially empty bottle of cognac was also discovered in his room. He was rushed to Desert View hospital for further assessment and then transferred to Sunrise Hospital. It has been widely report that "it doesn't look good" for the former NBA player. He is currently surrounded by friends and family, including Khloé, Kim and Kris, 59.
