Khloe (29) had filed for divorce from her husband in 2013 but the pair delayed bringing proceedings forward until several weeks before Lamar was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel from an apparent drugs overdose. Her initial filing for divorce came amid claims that Lamar (35) had been abusing drugs and was unfaithful to her.

The sports star was rushed to hospital and there were fears he would die. His estranged wife Khloe rushed to the hospital in Las Vegas with her mother Kris Jenner and stayed by his side.

Lamar recovered and has been transferred to a facility in Los Angeles. Khloe, as his legal next of kin, initially made all decisions regarding his care.

It's been reported that he suffered several strokes and is undergoing rehabilitative treatment in Los Angeles.

Several days after the apparent overdose, Khloe and Lamar withdrew their divorce proceedings.

In the interview with 'People', Khloe said her husband does not have an extensive support network surrounding him.

"He's the first one to say that. He doesn't have a support system. He has no siblings and his mother passed away," she told the publication.

"I have basically ten brothers and sisters and strong parents. He has a different lifestyle. He doesn't have a ton of friends because most of them have passed away. It's just him. I want to be his support system."
