Lamar Odom clearly has the support of his in-laws, the Kardashians, after his drug overdose left him on the brink of death, but one member of the family is said to be stepping up in a serious way. After news surfaced that Odom will need a kidney transplant, his brother-in-law, Rob Kardashian, reportedly offered the former NBA player one of his own.
Of course, there is no information on whether or not Rob is a compatible match with Lamar, but he is allegedly willing to help in any way possible. Odom is currently undergoing kidney dialysis treatments at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles after transferring from Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas.
Rob and Lamar have had a quite the friendship over the years during his marriage to Khloé Kardashian so this act of generosity, if true, comes as no surprise. On their reality TV show, Khloé & Lamar, viewers saw how much the two cared for each other, especially since Rob lived with the then-newlywed couple. After Odom's hospitalization, Rob even broke his Twitter silence to offer wishes for Lamar. He posted a sweet photo of the two-time champion leaning in for a kiss with the caption, “Praying nonstop for my Brother!!”
The entire Kardashian family has been supportive of Lamar during this difficult time, visiting him frequently at the hospital where his wife stayed by his side and made all his medical decisions. Khloé released a statement on her website on October 20, 2015, saying, “The past week has been so difficult. I am so thankful to family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar." Khloé and Lamar have since called off their divorce and his condition continues to improve.
