The Kardashian family have been leaning on each for other support after learning of Lamar Odom's condition after he was found unconscious on the floor of a Nevada brothel; but despite the fact that four members of the family have been holding vigil by the basketball star's bedside, spurious untruths are circulating about their behavior.
One of the most scandalous untruths came from Radar Online, who wrote that the Kardashian clan had arrived with a camera crew in tow to exploit Lamar's condition for ratings, the story from a so-called source read:
"It’s [a] s**t show. The Kardashians are trying to run everything. They walked into the hospital with cameras rolling. It was shocking, but hardly a surprise...they are all crying and pretending like they care. The doctors have been working non-stop to make sure Lamar pulls through and the Kardashians are making everything a circus. It is ridiculous. They’re bossing people around. They are trying to take over the situation, so typical."
This callous rumor has now been totally put to bed by TMZ, who for once weren't stirring the pot when they wrote:
Keeping Up with the Kardashians is on a hiatus, so there’s no staff to shoot anything even if the family wanted it. We’re told none of the Kardashians want their hospital vigil public ... in no small part because Khloe is devastated.
There are reports the family walked in with cameras rolling — not true ... cameras did not accompany them.
To the contrary, we’re told the Kardashians have banned any photography in eyeshot of Lamar.
Currently, Khloé, Kim, Kourtney and Kris are all by Lamar's bedside and things are not looking hopeful for the star, who has reportedly been given a fifty percent chance of survival and was said to have been found with cocaine on his face at the scene. Below is a round up of how the Kardashian family are leaning on each other to get through these dark days.
Khloé and Lamar are separated and filing for divorce, but this hasn't stopped Khloé from flying to stand vigil at the critically ill former NBA star's bedside.
Although Khloé has been, understandably, silent on social media during this harrowing time, various reports about her actions during the crisis have surfaced in the media.
E! revealed that 31-year-old Khloé is still legally married to Lamar, which means she is in charge of the medical decisions over his care. MSN entertainment wrote that an insider source informed them that:
"He never signed a living will, so Khloé is making decisions for him. It's very stressful. She is lost."
Khloé has paid to fly Lamar's father, his two children, and his ex-wife, Liza Morales, to the Las Vegas hospital as he currently has a fifty/fifty chance of survival, according to MSN:
"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."
People Magazine printed a poignant quote from a source close to the Kardashian family about Khloé's thoughts on Lamar which reads:
[Khloé] wanted him, and still wants him, to pull it together and live a happy life. She doesn't wish him harm. Even though they are not together anymore, I know that she cares about him and is devastated by this.
Kim Kardashian has also flown to Las Vegas to support her sister and Lamar through these dark times, and she has been there at Khloé's side since yesterday. According to E!:
'She's totally focused on being there for Khloé right now.'
Kim has also reportedly cancelled her baby shower in order to remain in the hospital.
Kris Jenner flew to Las Vegas two hours after the news about Lamar's condition broke and she has been photographed looking visibly distraught as she tries to come to terms with her former son-in-law's condition.
The Kardashian matriarch was also the first member of the family to break their silence about Lamar with the post above asking fans to pray for Lamar.
Kourtney Kardashian flew to Las-Vegas later than Khloé, Kris and Kim as she was looking after her children and North in L.A. to try and maintain some normality and routine for the little ones.
She is now with her mother and sisters to lend her support after leaving the children with a babysitter.
Although Kendall Jenner hasn't flown to Las Vegas, she left this short but touching message on Twitter.
Kylie Jenner abruptly ended her planned live stream after the news of Lamar's condition reacher her. So far, we haven't heard any more from the youngest sister.
Rob Kardashian also broke the social media silence by posting a touching snap of him sharing a brotherly hug with Lamar.
