Back when they first got together, the reality star had promised her then-husband that she would take care of his kids if anything were to happen to him.
In an interview from 2012 — before the two had filed for divorce — the NBA forward explained that the 31-year-old swore to look after the children he shares with ex Liza Morales, saying:
"I think two to three weeks [into our relationship], she said, 'Lamar, you know what? Anything ever happens to you, I got your kids. They're always going to be all right.' That meant so much. She's a serious person and when she's down for you she's down for you."
But it looks like Khloé is sticking to her word, since she supposedly flew the basketball player's kids out to Las Vegas to be by their dad's side at Sunrise Hospital.
