Khloe Kardashian: Lamar Odom Didn’t Know About Caitlyn Jenner’s Transition Until Recovering From His Overdose

Apparently, there is one person in the world who is not keeping up with the Kardashians — and he’s one of their own! In Kocktails With Khloé‘s Wednesday, March 29, episode, Khloé Kardashian reveals that Lamar Odom found out much later than most people did about Caitlyn Jenner‘s transition.

In the FYI series’ preview clip, the host, 31, says that she was unsure of what to do when her stepdad, 66, asked to visit Odom, 36, in the hospital following the former NBA star’s October 2015 overdose. Kardashian points out that prior to his hospitalization, her estranged husband still just knew of her parent as Bruce Jenner. The former Olympian came out as transgender in an April 2015 interview with 20/20s Diane Sawyer.

“Lamar was in a coma, and Lamar was in the hospital for four months, and I kept Lamar very sheltered,” she explains. “During that time was when Caitlyn was transitioning, but also, prior to Lamar’s accident, Lamar was not in the best state.”

The Strong Looks Better Naked author adds that Odom’s lifestyle before his health scare “wasn’t healthy, and I don’t think he was sitting laying in bed, relaxing, watching TV.”
