Lamar Odom & Khloe Kardashian Rush To Be With His ‘Gravely Ill’ Father

Khloe Kardashian is not in hospital according to her representative, but her husband Lamar Odom’s father Joe is.

The former heroin addict is “gravely ill” in hospital according to RadarOnline, and the Dallas Mavericks player is now spending time with him.

“Lamar’s dad is gravely ill, and he wanted time off to be with him,” a source said.

It was firstly reported that Khloe, 27, had been ill which is why Lamar asked for time off from the basketball team but it turns out that he’s taken leave from the team to look after his father.

Both stars are now rumoured to have cleared their diary to be with Joe, who recently reunited with his estranged father, because of Khloe.

On Wednesday night, Lamar missed the game against his old team LA Lakers, and his coach Rick Carlisle said: “He has been excused to tend to a family matter. He will rejoin us after the [All-Star] break.”

Meanwhile a source has said: “Khloe and Lamar were really upset about the news about Joe. They’re putting their schedules on hold right now to be there for him.”

The severity of the Joe’s condition has been highlighted by Lamar’s decision to take a step back from the team.

“It’s a really serious medical condition,” the insider explained. “This is the peak of the season, the Mavs really needed Lamar because the team depends on him, but they totally understand that family comes first.”

Before adding: “It was really serious for Lamar to take the break right now and last night proved it, but no one is holding it against him.”
