Khloe Kardashian‘s personal life is on pause at the moment. A source confirms to Us Weekly that the reality star is currently on a break with her boyfriend, James Harden, as she sees to the recovery of her estranged husband, Lamar Odom.
“Everything is on hold right now while she’s with Lamar,” the insider tells Us. TMZ was first to break the story early Tuesday morning.
Harden, 26, and Kardashian, 31, first stepped out together in Las Vegas in July. The following month, Kardashian made a huge gesture and threw a blowout 26th birthday bash for her NBA player beau. The star-studded yacht party was attended by celebs like Kanye West, all of the Kardashian-Jenner girls, and a roster of top NBA players.
As previously reported, Odom, 35, was upset about Kardashian’s relationship with the Houston Rockets player, who is currently rising among his NBA peers. When Odom reportedly ambushed Kardashian at a SoulCycle workout in August, the reality star jetted out of town to see Harden — and their first stop was Chipotle.
“Lamar has been hating that Khloe is with James,” an insider told Us at the time. “Lamar wants her back. That’s what stopped the communication on her end.”
On Oct. 13, Odom was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South, a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nev. He regained consciousness 72 hours later. Since then, Kardashian has barely left her estranged husband’s bedside, and even flew to L.A. with him as he was discharged from Sunrise Hospital via helicopter on Monday, Oct. 19.
The KUWTK star was initially “inconsolable” about Odom’s condition last week. “She hasn’t showered,” the second insider said on Monday. “She’s exhausted.”
However, she will be with him until he recovers. “Khloe is committed to staying with [Lamar],” a source previously told Us. “It’s a slow process, but Khloe is there every step of the way…It’s all been so draining and emotional.”
As reported by Us, Kardashian and Kris Jenner arranged for Odom to receive further care in L.A., in part, a source said, “so they can all be closer to him.”
“It’s all baby steps, very slow. Everything is going very slow,” the insider added. “He’s talking more. He’s very slowly improving. It’s going to be a struggle.”
