It's been almost three days since Lamar Odom was found unconscious in his suite at the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada.
It was reported yesterday that doctors have declared Odom brain dead, and despite showing occasional signs of life, they continue to believe that he has little chance of emerging from his coma.
Shortly after he was hospitalized, it was revealed that Odom is still married to Khloe Kardashian, despite the fact that they've been estranged for over two years.
This means that Khloe may soon be in the position of making difficult medical legal decisions on Lamar's behalf.
Radar Online reports that Khloe is the beneficiary of Lamar's $10 million life insurance policy. She will also receive a large portion of his estate which at one point was valued at $100 million.
(That number is probably significantly diminished now, as Lamar has not received any substantial income in nearly two years.)
“Khloe was to receive a majority of that," says one insider. "His kids were of course included in the will, but it’s understood they were to only receive a small portion compared to Khloe.”
The terms of Odom's will put Khloe in a strange predicament, as she's worth far more than he is, and Odom has two children to support.
The children's mother, Liza Morales, is reportedly already mounting a legal offensive in order to secure as much of Odom's estate for herself and her children as she can.
Khloe certainly doesn't need the money, but she and Morales are not exactly close friends (It's been widely reported that Odom cheated with Morales while before he and Khloe were separated.), so she may not be too keen on the idea of giving the woman a 9-figure gift.
Many expect that Khloe will give Liza a sizable enough chunk of Lamar's estate to effectively make her go away. But if Liza wants the whole thing, Khloe might have an ugly legal battle ahead of her.
