Khloe Kardashian and Lamar are still married because a judge hasn’t signed off on the divorce yet, making her in charge of Lamar’s medical care. According to People, Khloe is “not doing well at all with the responsibilities of making medical decisions.” Since the experience is “overwhelming” for her, she is asking those around her for advice. “She realizes that these are literally decisions of life and death,” the insider said. “She wasn’t prepared to take on this responsibility.”

While reports claimed the reality star took cocaine prior to being found unconscious at the Love Ranch brothel, owner Dennis Hof confirmed to Wendy Williams that the claims are true. He explained how Lamar did take the drug, but not at the brothel. “He was very honest,” Dennis explained. “He said, ’I’ve been partying in Vegas. I had done some coke on Saturday. I didn’t bring any with me out of respect to Dennis and the business.” He also confirmed that Lamar spent $75,000 at the ranch.
