The reality tv star (34) had planned a shower for her second child with husband Kanye West for this Saturday, but scrapped all ceberations in order to be by her sister Khloe's side while her estranged husband fights for his life.

It was revealed last night that Khloe (31) and Lamar (35) are still legally married. They split in 2013 after four years of marriage, but only signed divorce papers in June. Due to a backlog at the Los Angeles Superior County Court,, they would not be legally divorced until at least December.

And big sister Kim was among the first to fly out to Las Vegas, where Khloe has been glued to his side at Sunrise Hospital.

"She's totally focused on being there for Khloé right now," an insider told E! News.

The bash had a Troop Beverly Hills theme, based on the cult classic 1989 Shelley Long film, and was set to take place at her friend Allison Azoff's home in Beverly Hills. It's the same palatial estate where Khloe and Lamar exchanged vows in 2009.

Lamar was found unresponsive at Dennis Hof's Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada during the afternoon on Tuesday 13 October. It’s claimed he checked into the brothel on Saturday 10 October and has been using an herbal supplement throughout his stay.

Khloe has also flown out his father Joe, his ex-wife Liza Morales and their two children Destiny (17) and Lamar Jr (13) to be with their father at his bedside.

Her mother Kris Jenner and siblings Kim, Kourtney, Rob, Kendall and Kylie have all made their way to Nevada to be by his side, while Caitlyn Jenner is also en route.

The family are "praying for a miracle", according to sources, but are "pretty sure this is goodbye".

"They're pretty sure this is goodbye, but they're praying for a miracle," an insider told People. "They know that God has the power to heal him, but that's really the last hope at this point. This is really bad."

"Everyone has dropped everything to get there. There are a lot of calls and texts going back and forth as everyone is figuring out how they can help and be there for each other. The family has been told that this isn't just a minor thing; that it was extremely serious."

Odom's NBA pals have also joined in, with former LA Lakers teammate Kobe Bryant also flying out.

Earlier this year, Khloe told E! News she would always be in love with her ex-husband.

"I was so obsessed with him in a healthy way. He was my husband, and I still wish he was, and I don't think there's anything wrong with that," she said.
