Khloe Kardashian Says Lamar Odom Doesn't Know What Caused His Brain Injury

Pin It
Khloe Kardashian has been by Lamar Odom's side since he was hospitalized on October 13 after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel and while we've been hearing some conflicting reports about his health status, Khloe sets the record straight in this new interview on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, set to air November 16.

As expected, there have been a lot of ups and downs...

"He is off of all machines that help his organs, but he still has such a long way to go," she revealed. "He's learning how to walk again and feed himself again and put sentences together and cognitively there's a lot...there's's a long, long road ahead." A long road that Khloe has vowed to be by his side and support him on.

He's able to understand things and sometimes he's able to talk and put words together, sometimes he's not.

As far as what he's been told: He doesn't know what happened to his brain - they just tell him he's had a brain injury, but they won't tell him HOW that brain injury occurred as they're afraid that it will set him back. Fortunately, he hasn't asked.

Still, he's very confused and he has good days where he knows his birthday and who the President is and then he has bad days where he doesn't know how old he is. "Sometimes he thinks he's 26 [he's 36]," she explained. "And I say I bet you wish you were 26, so do I!"

Khloe explained that the stroke affected part of the brain that handles emotions, but he's been able to smile and laugh at appropriate times, which is encouraging. One of the first times they saw him laugh was when he was watching Ellen's show.

We continue to wish Lamar all the best in his recovery.
