Kris Jenner shocked by Lamar Odom's plane removal drama
Reality star Kris Jenner is stunned by reports suggesting her son-in-law Lamar Odom was removed from a plane this week (begs11Jul16).
The former professional basketball player is said to have been escorted off a New York-bound aircraft by flight attendants on Monday (11Jul16) after becoming drunk and vomiting on himself, in addition to puking in the plane bathroom.
Lamar has yet to address the incident in public, and Kris, who is the mother of his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, admits she really feels for her son-in-law.
"I don't know what happened. It was a big surprise to me," the 60-year-old Keeping Up with the Kardashians star revealed during an interview on Australia's Kyle and Jackie O radio show on Friday (15Jul16). "All I can say is I just want the very best for him because he's like my son. He's a part of my family and I adore him. He's the best. He's the best! He's the greatest guy in the world and anybody that knows him will tell you the same thing."
Odom's reported plane removal incident occurred just months after he overdosed on drugs and nearly died last October (15). Although he and wife Khloe were separated at the time of his health scare, she stepped up to care for him and put their divorce on hold, so she could use legal privileges as his spouse to make medical decisions for him while he was comatose.
In light of all of his struggles, Kris still has profound compassion for him and others who may be struggling with addiction.
"You just want the best for anyone that you love," she added. "I think that what I have learned through all of this is that anybody who's struggled with addiction, it's a disease and I've learned a lot... you can't judge somebody else unless you're really walking in their shoes..."
Khloe has since moved forward with her divorce from Lamar, and the couple is currently processing the end of its marriage in court.
