As NBA star Lamar Odom fights for his life in a coma after a suspected drug overdose, some are saying that Khloe Kardashian, his estranged wife, and her family have blood on their hands. Odom had apparently begged Khloe to stop filming their phone calls for the reality show Keeping Up With The Kardashians, that Khloe is a part of. Employees at the brothel where Odom was found unconscious say that he was in good spirits until viewing an episode of the show that left him distraught over the way he was portrayed during phone calls he had with Khloe over his drug use and the recent death of a close friend.
An insider spoke with Radar, stating that he had “pleaded with Khloe to stop having the production crew from KUWTK film their phone conversations. He wanted them to remain private. But he was powerless to stop it because Lamar had previously signed off on having phone calls recorded when he was married to Khloe, and part of the show.”
The source went on to report that, “Khloe would either ignore the texts and voice mail messages asking her to stop, or she would tell him ‘You owe me this after you humiliated me by cheating with other women.’ Lamar had no idea that he was going to be Khloe’s storyline during the past season. She is always talking about how much she loves the guy, but has no problem exploiting Lamar for her gain. How low can Khloe go? Lamar would call her sobbing about losing his best friend this past summer, and the first thing she thinks is to document it?”
The source expressed what many others, including some of Odom’s family members, feel, stating, “The Kardashians all have Lamar’s blood on their hands,” going on to insist that the family “demonized and exploited him for their stupid show.”
Odom remains in a medically induced coma and is on dialysis because his kidneys are failing. Doctors are also saying that he has brain damage from suffering multiple strokes. There have been recent reports that Odom fluttered his eyelids and squeezed his former sister-in law Kim Kardashian’s hand, giving the family some semblance of hope that a recovery may be possible.
