Still legally married, Khloé’s making ALL medical decisions for Lamar


Despite parting ways with him in 2013 after four years of marriage, it's clear Khloé still has a huge place in her heart for Lamar Odom.

And with Lamar currently in a coma due to a suspected drug overdose, it's down to Khloé to make all of his medical decisions – as it turns out she is still legally his next of kin.

A backlog in LA's family law courts  mean Khloé and Lamar won't be officially divorced until the end of the year, even though they signed off on their divorce papers back in July.

The 35-year-old basketball star is thought to have just a 50/50 chance of surviving and his condition remains critical.

Khloé's mum Kris Jenner and brother Rob Kardashian have both taken to social media to ask fans for "prayers," with Kris calling Lamar "our fighter."


Please pray for Lamar #ourfighter

And last night his former sister-in-law Kendall Jenner, 19, tweeted her support from Shanghai, where she is currently working. Keeping her sentiments brief, she simply wrote: "please don't go". 

After being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday afternoon, Lamar was brought to a hospital in Las Vegas, where his condition remains critical.

The former LA Lakers player appears to have suffered an "ischemic stroke," which is caused by a clot preventing blood flow to the brain; it is often associated with a cocaine overdose.

"Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system," a source told E! News. "Likely there's brain damage."

TMZ, who broke the story on Tuesday morning, claim the 6ft10in NBA star had been taking opiates and cocaine days prior, as well as a large amount of a herbal Viagra substitute called Reload.
