Lamar Odom recovery update: Will KhloÃ© Kardashian really pay his massive hospital bill
Will KhloÃ© Kardashian pay the hefty medical bill of Lamar Odom? There are rumors doing the rounds that Khloe, who would have received a major part of his $50 million estate in case of his death may well have to take responsibility for his huge hospital bill.
There is no denying the fact that the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star is facing a big challenge in Lamar Odomâ€™s condition. For the last two and half months she is trying to ward off attack from Lamar Odomâ€™s fans who continue to accuse her of ditching him and enjoying with his boyfriend James Harden.
She has replied many such fans in kind and later went on to apologize for her ranting.
Nonetheless when it comes to massive hospital bill of Lamar Odom mere apology is not going to work. As he is facing memory issues, it is still going a long time when he is in a condition where he can take care of his finances and make necessary payments.
Former Lakers star Lamar Odom is recuperating for two and half months at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after he was found unresponsive due to a drug overdose at a Las Vegas brothel in October.
Recent reports suggest that his hospital bill might have run in millions. A report by Entertainment Tonight (ET) said that Odomâ€™s medical bills have so far reached $750,000 this year and are still increasing. The Radar Online report also said that by the end of the year, Odom may have spent about $10 million from his $55 million fortune.
In the meantime Ryan Stearns, a family law expert says, “Since [the two are] still married and these bills relating to his treatment are [considered] debt, they are going to be presumed as a family obligationâ€¦However, there are some [legal] exceptions â€¦ which provide that debts incurred while married, but for non-necessaries of life, should be the separate responsibility of the spouse that incurs the debtâ€¦If I were representing Khloe, and [knew that] later she was going to divorce Lamar, I would argue that he’s going through this treatment as a consequence of his ‘whoring’ around”.
On the other hand there are reports doing the rounds that Khloe may visit his estranged husband in the hospital during the Christmas holidays.
