Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian

*It appears there’s trouble in the reconciliation of Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian.

Us Weekly’s new cover story claims that Odom, still recovering in L.A.’s Cedars-Sinai hospital after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13, told his wife to “get out” of his room – because she’s been too controlling.

According to the article, a family source claims Kardashian kept the former Lakers star’s kids from visiting their father, even though she was reportedly the one who paid for his family to fly to his bedside.

Things reportedly came to a head on Oct. 23. “Lamar said he needed space and wanted to be alone,” a source tells Us. “He told her to get out.”

A source close to Khloe denies that Odom ever told her to “get out” or that she has been controlling who visits her ex in the hospital.

The reality star, who put their divorce on hold and postponed her book tour once Lamar was hospitalized, did temporarily leave to spend some time with her sisters and reconnect with her boyfriend, James Harden, according to Us. But she returned soon after despite Odom’s supposed request.

Kardashian is “focused on making sure Lamar is stabilized,” a close source tells Us.
