Khloé Kardashian ‘scraps book tour to care for Lamar Odom’
Khloé Kardashian has reportedly cancelled plans to embark on a promotional tour for her upcoming book so she can remain by ailing husband Lamar Odom's side.
The Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star had been due to hit the road to support the release of her self-help guide, Strong Looks Better Naked, on 3 November (15), but she has since pulled the plug on the trip, reports UsMagazine.com.
Khloé has been a constant presence by Lamar's bedside ever since he was hospitalised in Las Vegas on 13 October (15), after he was found unconscious at a brothel in nearby Crystal, Nevada. He woke up from a coma last week (ends16Oct15), and he has since been transferred to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for further treatment.
The former Los Angeles Lakers basketball player is said to be recovering after undergoing emergency surgery on Thursday (22Oct15) to treat issues reportedly related to a bout of pneumonia.
"Lamar is in a very fragile state," a source told People.com. "The infection, that is being aggressively treated with strong intravenous antibiotics, is unfortunately not getting better. There are many concerns about his health."
The latest crisis to his wellbeing occurred a day after the couple formally called off its divorce, after a Los Angeles judge granted the stars' request to dismiss their signed divorce papers.
Khloé had originally filed to end their four-year union in December 2013, but they didn't move forward with the court action until this summer (15), when they both finally signed the documents. However, the papers had not yet been finalised by a judge, allowing them to pull the petition and give their marriage another chance.
Khloé details her split from Lamar in the new book and opens up about her recent weight loss, which was inspired by her love struggles.
