Los Angeles - Khloé Kardashian wants to be Lamar Odom's "support system".
The Keeping Up With The Kardashians star has defended her decision to call off her divorce with the basketball star following his hospitalisation after a drink and drug binge, insisting he has lost a lot of his close friends and family.
She told PEOPLE magazine: "He's the first one to say that. He doesn't have a support system. He has no siblings and his mother passed away.
"I have basically ten brothers and sisters and strong parents. He has a different lifestyle. He doesn't have a ton of friends because most of them have passed away. It's just him. I want to be his support system."
Meanwhile, the 31-year-old television personality recently took to Twitter to blast her critics for their negative energy.
She wrote: "I want to make this VERY clear.... My people cover, I shot and interviewed for PRIOR to all the events that happened.
"It was contracted press for my book that I wrote months and months ago. Timing is what it is.
"Shame on you all for thinking the worst of me. It's been a tough few weeks. I don't need your f***ed up energy! (sic)"
