Khloé Kardashian can’t bring herself to tell estranged husband Lamar Odom why he is in hospital, as she believes it will set him back in his recovery.
The former LA Lakers player was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel in October (15) after he reportedly suffered a drug overdose and several mini strokes. Khloé has remained by his bedside ever since and while he is showing signs of improvement, learning to walk and feed himself again, the reality star fears the sportsman doesn’t know why he is in hospital.
“We tell him he had a brain injury, (but) I can’t tell him how that brain injury was caused, because it will set him back,” she said in a preview of her visit to the Ellen DeGeneres Show which is set to air on Monday (16Nov15). “He’s never asked why he’s here.”
The 36-year-old was moved to Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles when his condition stabilized but Khloé added there is still a “long, long road ahead”.
“He’s really confused a lot … every day is different,” she continued. “Sometimes he knows who the President is, or his birthday, and then other times he thinks he’s 26. I said, ‘I bet you wish you were 26! So do I!'”
As well as the mini strokes, Lamar also reportedly suffered pneumonia and kidney damage. Khloé has had to make a number of medical decisions on his behalf. The couple has also put its divorce on hold but the star insists that doesn’t mean they are getting back together and she is still happy with boyfriend James Harden.
“We have to communicate a lot, and he’s really supportive and great,” she added. “I just feel like it’s a really insensitive thing to fast-forward a divorce. But I love (Lamar) and I always will.
“I’m just gonna say I’m, like, part of polygamy now,” she laughed. “I have a husband. I have a boyfriend. That’s a way easier thing to say. Right?”
