The Kardashian and Jenner family was incorrectly told that Khloé Kardashian‘s ex-husband, Lamar Odom, had died the day of his Oct. 2015 overdose, the women reveal in an exclusive clip from the upcoming Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ 10th anniversary special.
“It had said Lamar passed away,” Kendall says. “And I immediately started sobbing on the plane. Then I got the next text came through, saying, ‘Actually he’s okay, he’s alive but he’s not doing well.’ So that’s why I was so upset, because I wanted to be there to be able to say goodbye.”
The miscommunication was not Kim’s fault, however: “Someone made a fake account and emailed me with the wrong information,” she says.
“I was screaming,” shares Khloé, adding, “To think and to go through the motions as if someone has passed away is the most traumatic thing to do and then to know they’re really alive, it was too many emotions, I think, for any of us to handle.”
Odom was rushed to the hospital after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13, 2015. Near death, he spent four days in a coma.
Though Odom and Kardashian had signed divorce papers in July 2015 – following the NBA star’s cheating scandal and drug relapse – the judgement had not yet been entered in court when the overdose occurred.

In late May 2016, Kardashian, 33, filed for divorce for a second time. The proceedings were finalized in December, and the stars have since gone their separate ways.
