On October 10, 2015, Odom, who had been served divorce papers by his wife of 7 years, Khloé Kardashian, was partying at the Love Ranch, a Las Vegas brothel.

Throughout his ordeal, Khloé, who withdrew her divorce petition while he was ill, was by his side, sleeping in hospital chairs.

“Khloé never left my side. She didn’t shower for days. Kim’s resiliency was incredible too. They put chairs together for her to sleep across at night,” Odom said.
