“He is off all the machines that help his organs but he has such a long way to go.”
Khloé Kardashian has told Ellen Degeneres of her estranged husband’s recovery from a coma after his supposed three day drink and drugs binge at a legal brothel in Nevada.
The 31-year old reality TV star, and recently published author, has also said that Lamar is not aware of why he was hospitalised. He has to learn to feed himself and speak again as he suffered a brain injury.
Khloé described her fear of telling Lamar how he came to be in such a serious condition as she is afraid it would “set him back” in his recovery.
“I can't tell him. We tell him he had a brain injury, I can't tell him how that brain injury was caused. It will set him back.”
She also explained that Lamar has never asked why he is in the hospital, and they are just taking his progress day by day.
“He's really confused a lot we have to remind him. Every day is different. Sometimes he knows who the president is, and his birthday, and other times he thinks he's 26, and I say: "I bet you wish you were 26, so do I."'
Khloé also described the timing of her promotional tour for her book Strong Looks Better Naked has come at a very awkward time. She told the talk show host that she would rather be with Lamar as he recovers than doing interviews.
She said that her “heart and mind are in the hospital with somebody else.”
Ellen also asked how she was coping with the fact that she and Lamar were in the process of getting a divorce when he was admitted to hospital:
“I’m there helping him and I love him and I’ve always loved him. And that will never change and I just feel like it’s a really insensitive thing to fast forward a divorce.”
“I love him and I always will and he’s a fantastic person who deserves support and love and for someone to be by his side, and for me, I’m that to him.”
The blonde also thanked her family for their support during the ordeal as well as the fans who offered their support. She recognised the “power of prayer” as something that she believes truly helped Lamar recover.
