Khloé Kardashian says that Lamar Odom has absolutely no idea what happened to him or why he is in the hospital.
During an appearance on Ellen, Kardashian revealed that while the rest of the world knows all the sordid details of Odom’s debauched weekend at a legal brothel in Nevada, culminating in a drug overdose that left him in critical condition, Odom himself has no clue what happened.
“We tell him he had a brain injury, but I can’t tell him about how that brain injury was caused because it will set him back,” she said, adding that Odom has not actually asked for the specifics yet. “He’s really confused a lot so we have to remind him,” she continued. “Every day is different.”
In addition to a brain injury, Odom also suffered a heart attack and organ failure. Kardashian previously revealed that her ex is learning how to walk again. Despite rumors he kicked her out of his hospital room, she has remained by his side both in Las Vegas and at Cedars-Sinai in Los Angeles, and spends time with him daily despite her ongoing relationship with boyfriend James Harden.
“I’m there helping him and I love him and I’ve always loved him,” she explained. “And that will never change, and I just feel like it’s a really insensitive thing to fast-forward a divorce.
“I’m just gonna say I’m like part of polygamy now,” she joked. “I have a husband. I have a boyfriend. That’s a way easier thing to say.”
Kardashian’s episode of Ellen will air Nov. 16.
