Khloe Kardashian breaks silence over Lamar Odom
Khloe Kardashian has spoken out for the first time since her estranged husband Lamar Odom's hospitalisation last week to thank everyone for their support.
Lamar Odom was discharged from the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas on Monday, and has been transferred to a Los Angeles medical facility, a week after he was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. Law enforcement reports suggest the former Los Angeles Lakers star had illegal substances in his system when he was admitted for emergency treatment, and subsequently suffered a series of strokes and organ failure. He was placed on a ventilator to assist with his breathing, but he woke up from a coma on Friday.
Khloe has reportedly been at his bedside throughout the ordeal and is now breaking her silence. "The past week has been incredibly difficult,"she wrote on her website. "I am so thankful to family, friends, and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work. Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made."
She adds, "You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued support. God is great!!!"
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom wed in 2009, she filed for divorce from the athlete in 2013. Their divorce was reportedly finalised earlier this year, but a judge has yet to sign off on the documentation to make it official.
Khloe Kardashian is currently dating basketball player James Harden.
