Khloé Kardashian “Was Screaming” When She Heard Lamar Odom Died In a Drug Overdose
Khloe Kardashian was told Lamar Odom died
Khloe Kardashian Lamar Odom's story was documented on "Keeping Up With The Kardashian."
The INSIDER Summery:
- Khloe Kardashian says she was initially told ex-Lamar Odom died after he overdosed in October 2015.
- Khloe's sister Kim was the first to hear and relay the misinformation.
- The reality star said she screamed when she first heard the news, and found the experience traumatic.
"Keeping Up With The Kardashians" has gifted fans with an inside look at the lives of the famous family, allowing them to witness good and bad times — like when Khloe Kardashian's ex-husband Lamar Odom overdosed in October 2015.
What fans didn't realize at the time, however, was that the experience was much more traumatic than it appeared.
People shared a clip from the upcoming 10 year anniversary special, in which the family members say they were initially told the former NBA star died. As Kendall Jenner explains in the clip, she received a text from her older sister, Kim Kardashian-West, with the news.
"It had said Lamar passed away," Kendall says. "And I immediately started sobbing on the plane."
Shortly after, however, she received another text saying that her former brother-in-law was not dead, but "not doing well."
So where did this false information come from? Kim says that someone made a fake account and sent her the wrong information, an act that sent the entire family on an emotional roller coaster ride.
"She fell [and] screamed on the plane," Kim says of her sister Khloe.
"To think and to go through the motions as if someone has passed away is the most traumatic thing to do and then to know they're really alive, it was too many emotions, I think, for any of us to handle," Khloe tells host Ryan Seacrest.

The story of Khloe and Lamar's relationship is made for TV; filled with love, betrayal, and heartbreak. According to ET, the two met in August 2009 and got married a month later — an event which was filmed for "Keeping Up With The Kardashians."
Though the couple shared many amazing moments as husband and wife, even earning their own spin-off show on E!, Khloe's rise to fame and eventually led to the couple's split in 2013. The divorce proceedings were put on hold, however, after Lamar suffered from an overdose in 2015, according to E!.
Khloe cared for Odom during his hospital stay and recovery process, showing that she still had love for her former husband. But that was not enough to keep them together.
"I will always like love Lamar and be his friend but it's time for me to start the next chapter of my life," Khloe said in an episode of "Keeping Up With The Kardashians," according to E!.
