Our hearts.

Original story, 10/14: Khloé Kardashian's love for ex-husband Lamar Odom, after his spiral into addiction and their subsequent divorce, has really never wavered. And now that he's in a coma, she's flying to Vegas (opens in new tab) to be by his side.

Following a night at the Bunny Ranch brothel, where he was reportedly taking "herbal Viagra," the basketball player was found unconscious yesterday and rushed to a local hospital. Odom's condition is said to be "very serious", and, according to TMZ (opens in new tab), he's in a coma, breathing with the assistance of machines, and fighting potential heart failure.

It's a shocking development for fans, but, sadly, maybe less so for Kardashian herself. On a recent episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, after hearing that a friend of Odom's was dying, she said: "I'm really on high alert for Lamar because I mean, anything I think will set him to spiral, and that's kind of the last thing I want for him."

"This is all just really upsetting," she added. "He's distraught and devastated. Lamar has suffered so much loss in his life. I'm always going to be there for Lamar, especially when something as tragic as this happens."
