Khloe Kardashian Reportedly Forbids Lamar Odom's Dad From Visiting Him

Despite a stream of well-wishers filtering in and out of Cedars Sinai hospital in Los Angeles, it's being reported that Khloe Kardashian has banned Lamar Odom's dad from visiting his son.

Joe Odom ranted to TMZ about not being placed on the visitors list by Khloe, saying that he saw his son nearly every day while Lamar was living in Las Vegas, just before the overdose.

While it may seem cruel for Khloe to tell Joe he can't visit his child, who is currently fighting for his life in the hospital, there's a lot of backstory between the father and son. For many, many years, Lamar didn't have any sort of relationship with Joe, who has been reported to have his own substance abuse issues. It's entirely possible that either Lamar asked Khloe to keep Joe out of his hospital room, or that Khloe simply thinks Joe's presence would place too much stress on the situation.

Right now, Lamar needs strong and positive forces around him. Even if he has recently reconciled with his dad, which may be true, the stress of dealing with someone who is a bit unstable while you're trying to get your health back could be devastating. If you remember, Lamar was livid with Khloe when she reached out to Joe during their reality series Khloe & Lamar.

So before everyone jumps at Khloe for dropping the hammer on Joe's hospital visits, try to keep in mind that she has Lamar's best interests at heart. Our guess is she'll allow Joe to visit when the time is right.
