Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – Khloe Kardashian graced the cover of the latest issue of Shape magazine and in it she revealed how the health scare of her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, and breaking up with him affected her health.
She shared, "When Lamar and I broke up, I had all these emotions that I didn't know what to do with. Some people suggested therapy, but instead I joined my local Equinox gym, where I'd get on an elliptical and watch bad reality TV. As a result, I started losing weight."
The 31-year-old reality star indeed showed improvement with her weight and body image in the past months. She has been flaunting the body she has worked for in different covers, photoshoots , and red carpet appearances.
The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star added that once she realized she could shed some pounds, she began working out regularly with her trainer, Gunnar Peterson. She then committed to get healthier and credited that her trainer taught her that the trick to staying motivated is to find what one really loves to do.
However, the workouts of the “Strong Looks Better Naked” author had to stop last fall after Odom overdosed in a Las Vegas brother. She noted that she was told by doctors the former NBA player had only for hours to live. Kardashian has then since spent being his primary caregiver even going to the extent of renting a home for him close to where she lives so she can keep an eye on her estranged husband.
She added, "I know it was very confusing to the world. Because I was with him, everyone thought we were getting back together. But there was no one else to make the important medical decisions. I had to be there to make sure he would survive. I learned that strength is how you handle the good and the bad, and the situation with Lamar was where I found my strength."
As for Odom, Kardashian recently posted cryptic messages on Instagram amid the reports that he reverted back to his old ways and started partying again. Accordingly, Odom is not scared that Kardashian will push through with their divorce.
An insider shared, “Lamar‘s back to his old self and his confidence level is through the roof! Khloe’s cryptic and subliminal messages don’t work on him anymore. He’s always been sure of himself and doesn’t believe for a second Khloe will leave him.”
The people involved in these reports are yet to comment.
