Kim Kardashian won’t leave her brother-in-law Lamar Odom’s side, even for her own baby shower. The 34-year-old reportedly cancelled the event to continue the vigil for the NBA player, who has been in critical condition. Kim is expecting her second child with husband Kanye West.
Sources have confirmed to E! News that Kim was set to celebrate her upcoming arrival with a party inspired by 1998 feel-good film Troop Beverly Hills, to be hosted by her friend Allison Azoff at the family’s Beverly Hills Estate on Saturday. However Kim has cancelled the shower in the light of Lamar’s condition.
“She’s totally focused on being there for Khloé right now,” a source told E!
The mum-to-be has been supporting her younger sister along with mum Kris Jenner at the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas, where Lamar remains in a coma following a suspected drug overdose. Kim relied on sister Kourtney to take her daughter North to her regular ballet lesson on Wednesday as she stayed by Lamar’s bedside with other family members.
Kim is yet to break her silence on Lamar’s condition, but younger sister Kendall Jenner expressed her concerns with a tweet saying: “Please don’t go.” The model flew back to Las Vegas from China where she was taking part in Shanghai Fashion Week, while brother Rob Kardashian is also reported to have travelled to the hospital.
Rob also returned to Instagram to share a touching photo of himself and Lamar hugging, writing alongside: “Praying nonstop for my Brother!!” Meanwhile Kris Jenner asked fans to “Please pray for Lamar #ourfighter.”
Lamar was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday afternoon. He was taken to a local hospital where he was intubated, before being taken to Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas where he remains in a coma.
“Inconsolable” Khloé is reportedly making medical decisions for Lamar as he continues to fight for his life, because the couple’s divorce has not yet been finalised.
“He never signed a living will, so Khloé is making decisions for him,” a source close to the family told People. “It’s very stressful. She is lost.
“They’re pretty sure this is goodbye, but they’re praying for a miracle. They know that God has the power to heal him, but that’s really the last hope at this point. This is really bad.”
