VIDEO & FULL AUDIO: Khloé Kardashian talks about Lamar Odom, Caitlyn Jenner and Tristan Thompson on Divorce Sucks!
More than three years ago, Khloé Kardashian‘s world was rocked to its core when she nearly lost her ex-husband, Lamar Odom.
In October 2015, Odom, 39, had a near-fatal overdose while at the Love Ranch brothel in Las Vegas. Although he and Kardashian were in the process of divorcing at the time, the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star remained by his side in the hospital as he fought to survive.
He OD’ed during the divorce and I was his next of kin, even though it was still, the divorce was still — it was on the judge’s desk, It was like two years, or like a year or two of us trying to get the divorce going and then this happened. And then we paused the divorce, not for any romantic reasons but I wanted to be able to help take care of him and make sure that he would be okay again.
I remember he woke up and the first thing he said was, ‘Hey babe,’ ” said Kardashian. “I was like, ‘Oh God. What year does he think this is?’ I remember I was like, ‘Oh no. What did I do?!’ Because I was like, ‘Does he know?’ And then he went right back to sleep because he was in a coma, woke up, saw me and I might’ve put him back into a coma I don’t know, he probably was terrified.
Every now and then. There’s no issues. There’s no bad blood. There’s no anything. It just didn’t work out and I think he’s an incredible person and I just want the best for him. But there’s no negative anything
“I’m fine with Caitlyn. I saw Caitlyn recently, but yeah when I see Caitlyn, it’s fine. I think we’ve really come a long way. It was a struggle for all of us, at first the transition, not because she was transitioning. I think from how it was all handled.
I also think when your emotions die down, you’re able to really look at everything and be like, we’re all humans and we’re all trying to figure this out. I could only imagine how difficult it had to be to tell your children something like that, but at the time, information was withheld from us and we had to find out through other media channels and I think we all, our feelings were hurt. We’re in a really good place and we want everyone to be happy with whoever they are.
Wasser then asked Khloe if her former stepparent was dating a woman now, a reference to Caitlyn’s “business partner” Sophia Hutchins.
“Yes, I believe that she is a transgendered woman as well,” said Kardashian. “She’s really, really sweet too. She’s really sweet. She’s younger, but like, she’s not bothering anyone. She’s super sweet.”
“I will say, my mom is like superwoman,” said Khloe. “I remember during the initial couple months, it’s traumatic and her emotions are really high and that’s expected, if they weren’t, that’d be weird. How she’s handled it and still how she’s never involved Kendall and Kylie in any of her stuff, how she feels, she might vent to me and my other sisters because we’re older and we’re less emotionally attached than Kendall and Kylie might be”
“It does f*king suck because our personal emotions are still in there.”
She continued, “So those emotions can be heightened at times, but I do everything in my power — True is one and, like, a month old — so she doesn’t really know what’s happening, but to me she does know and she feels energy and I’m a big believer of that.
“I do everything in my power to not put just any sort of heavy energy around her. Maybe that sounds are a little too bohemian to some people.”
Khloe also spoke about her reasons for inviting Tristan to True’s first birthday party back in April.
I didn’t do it because I thought she was going to remember this first party… but I know she’s going to want to look back at all of her childhood memories like we all do… and I want to give her the same thing
Khloe said that Tristan is a “great person”, and she knows he loves and cares about baby True.
