On Thursday, Oct. 15, the New York Daily News reported that Jenner, 65, had arrived that evening at Sunrise Hospital to visit stepdaughter Khloe Kardashian‘s estranged husband as he remains in critical condition after being found unconscious in a brothel earlier this week.
Jenner’s rep tells Us, however, that the former Olympian is not in Sin City, and that the report is incorrect.
Meanwhile, other members of the Kardashian-Jenner family did visit Odom this past week. While some of the brood — including Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian, Kris Jenner, and others — have since returned home to L.A. on Thursday, Odom’s estranged wife, Khloe, opted to remain by his side.
As previously reported by Us Weekly, Khloe is legally responsible for making medical decisions for the former NBA player. “There’s still a lot of emotion there and she wouldn’t want to ever see him like this,” an insider told Us of Khloe, 31, who filed for divorce from Odom in December 2013, but is still technically married to him. “And to have to make decisions on top of it now is also very hard. It’s a lot on her shoulders and a lot weighing on her.”

As she struggles to make choices on behalf of her ex, Khloe had to face another battle this week — against Love Ranch South brothel owner Dennis Hof. The reality star’s reps released a statement to Us Weekly on Friday, Oct. 16, asking Hof to show some respect after he spoke to various media outlets this week about how much Odom spent during his time at Love Ranch, plus more details.
“We reached out to Dennis,” Khloe’s statement to Us read. “Politely asking him to respect Lamar’s (and Khloe’s) privacy during this difficult time, and refrain from talking to the press. This is a very painful situation, as I know you are aware, and the idea that anyone would use it to seek publicity is really sad.”
Odom remains in critical condition.
