Side-Eye: Are the Kardashians Exploiting Lamar?

Find out what the family's being accused of.

Published May 9, 2016

While Lamar Odom was on life support, fighting for his life, his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian shot a bunch of photos and videos of him. Now that they're being shown on the new season of the family's reality show, Keeping Up With the Kardashians, some are accusing them of exploiting the fallen NBA star, but according to TMZ, Lamar's OK with it.

Lamar reportedly gave full clearance for the photos and videos to be used on the show. Sources close to the KUWTK production team say Khloé only recorded the footage of Lamar in his hospital bed so she could "share with him his progress when he got better."

TMZ reports once Lamar regained full consciousness, Khloé showed him the images and he decided on his own that he wanted them on the show.

This has some scratching their heads as Kim said last year that no TV cameras were in the facility while Lamar was hospitalized. According to reports, this is true — the images and videos were all taken on Khloé's smartphone.
