Khloe Kardashian Opens Up About The Moment She Was Told Lamar Odom Had Died
"I was screaming..."
Khloe Kardashian and her sisters have opened up about the horrifying moment that they heard her ex-husband, basketball star Lamar Odom, had died.
The family revealed that they were actually tricked by some cruel false information about his condition, which was sent to them after Lamar was rushed to hospital in 2015.
Here's the full timeline of Khloe and Lamar's roller coaster relationship...
Speaking to Ryan Seacrest for the 10th anniversary of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, the Kardashian-Jenner gals were quizzed on what they consider to be the hardest moment that they’ve had while filming the show.
Giving her answer straight away, Kendall remembered: “I landed from Hong Kong to London.
“I landed and the first text to pop up on my phone was from Kim saying that Lamar had passed away. And I like, immediately started sobbing on the plane.”
Explaining how the crisis became even more confusing, Kendall went on: “Then I got the next text coming through saying ‘Okay actually he’s okay, but he’s not doing well’.
“That’s why I was so upset because I wanted to be there to be able to say goodbye.”
Explaining how the awful mix up had actually happened, Kim said: “On the plane they said he’d died. Someone had made a fake account and emailed me with the wrong information.
Kim went on to describe how she’d watched her sister crumble when she heard the news. “Seeing Khloe…,” Kim shared. “She fell, screamed on the plane.”
Khloe herself also opened up about how she’d reacted in the traumatic moment, before hearing that Lamar was actually still holding on.
“I was screaming,” Khloe admitted. “To think and to go through the motions as if someone has passed away, is the most traumatic thing to do.
“And then to know that they’re really alive… It was too many emotions for us to handle.”
Lamar was rushed to hospital in an emergency state after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel in October 2015. He spent four days in a coma and his condition seemed to rapidly deteriorate, before making a miracle recovery.
Khloe spent the entire ordeal by his side in hospital – despite the ex-couple signing divorce papers just a few months earlier in the year.
She temporarily called off the divorce to help make Lamar’s medical decisions as his legal spouse, before re-filing the proceedings in May 2016.
