Reality TV star, Khloe Kardashian has opened up about estranged husband Lamar Odom’s first public appearance after his near fatal drug overdose late last year.
The 31-year-old beauty disclosed that brother-in-law Kanye West played an influential part in helping the athlete recover and be able to attend his Yeezy 3 presentation earlier this month.
Khloe was interviewed by hosts on Hollywood Today Live on Tuesday where she said that the rapper would play his music at Lamar’s bedside as he lay comatose in hospital.
‘Kanye was really instrumental in Lamar getting better,’ she said. Kanye would come to the hospital and play his album for Lamar, Lamar couldn’t speak at this time… but he would say he could understand everything, he just couldn’t get the words out and he felt really trapped in his own body which was terrifying,
‘When he was finally able to speak he would say “Man, Kanye really helped me, I love that he would come’
Khloe spoke of how amazed she was about the former NBA star’s miraculous recovery – considering he couldn’t walk only a month and a half ago – to be able to attend the Madison Square Garden event and show his support for the 38-year-old Gold Digger hitmaker.
But she wasn’t certain he was ready to be going to such a big public show.
‘I did not want him to go to New York, I had a ton of anxiety, like “Is it too much stimulus for his brain?”
‘I thought it was so dope of Kanye to want to walk out with Lamar’
Pictures from the February 11 event showed the athlete clad in sweater, beanie and camouflage jacket as he stood in the spotlight with the Only One rapper.
He also smiled as he posed backstage with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner clan.
She told her guests that she hadn’t ruled out remarrying Lamar, saying ‘I mean, that would be like the best dream.
‘But it’s really hard to erase everything that happened. Just building a friendship back is what I’m doing now, it has nothing intimately, nothing at all, just pure love and I want someone to learn how to love themselves again.’ she explained.
Following Lamar’s October collapse after a four-day bender at a Nevada brothel, Khloe has stayed close by his side despite filing for divorce in 2013.
