Last night, terrifying news concerning the health of 2-time NBA Champion Lamar Odom indicated that the former Heat, Clipper and Laker forward was fighting for his life in a Nevada hospital after he was found unconscious on the floor of a brothel by two of its employees.
Today, the former 6th Man of the Year is still fighting to regain his health, and his ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian, star of Keeping Up With The Kardashians–reportedly rushed to his side, as did two important figures from Odom’s playing career, Kobe Bryant and Lakers GM Mitch Kupchak–among other friends and family, both famous and not so famous.
However, an interesting, and somewhat disheartening–though not surprising–tidbit about Kardashian’s visit surfaced via Radar Online, claiming that the reality TV star had showed up to the hospital to visit her ex-husband flanked with rolling cameras, presumably looking to capture dramatic footage of whatever transpired for a future episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the E! television show from which the Jenner-Kardashian empire emanated.
Here’s an excerpt from Radar’s report:
Khloe, 30, sister Kim Kardashian and “Momager” Kris Jenner hopped on a private jet to Sin City with cameras rolling as soon as they learned about Odom’s overdose after a three-day booze and pill bender that culminated in him being found unconscious at the Bunny Ranch.
“It’s [a] s**t show,” a source close to the situation told Radar. “The Kardashians are trying to run everything. They walked into the hospital with cameras rolling. It was shocking, but hardly a surprise.”
This could have an adverse effect on Odom’s recovery, especially if this TMZ report–claiming that seeing an episode involving a phone conversation between him and Khloe on Sunday night interrupted Odom’s alleged tranquil state–has any validity to it.
