Khloé Kardashian is setting the record straight about her relationship status with ex Lamar Odom, who currently is recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after he was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada in October.
“People say, ‘Oh, I pulled back on the divorce.’ They think it’s something sexual or there was a relationship to be thought about when he can’t even fully understand what’s happening,” the 31-year-old explained to The Insider With Yahoo at a signing for her new book, Strong Looks Better Naked. “He understands I’m dating James [Harden, another NBA star] but he’s not thinking about a relationship. He can hardly think about himself right now.”
Former Lakers star Odom turned 36-years-old last week and though he remains hospitalized, Khloé wasn’t about to his birthday go uncelebrated. The reality star planned a small get-together at the hospital.
“I don’t know if he fully understands everything. But I know he’s grateful and I’m not doing it for validation. I’m not doing it to get praise back,” she explained.
