Khloe Kardashian scraps book tour to care for Lamar Odom

Khloe Kardashian has canceled plans to embark on a promotional tour for her upcoming book so she can remain by ailing husband Lamar Odom's side.

The Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star was scheduled to hit the road to support the release of her self-help guide, Strong Looks Better Naked, on 3 November (15), but she has since pulled the plug on the trip, reports UsMagazine.com.

Khloe has been a constant presence by Lamar's bedside ever since he was hospitalized in Las Vegas on 13 October (15), after he was found unconscious at a brothel in nearby Crystal, Nevada. He woke up from a coma last week (ends16Oct15), and he has since been transferred to Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center for further treatment.

The former Los Angeles Lakers basketball player is said to be recovering after undergoing emergency surgery on Thursday (22Oct15) to treat issues reportedly related to a bout of pneumonia.

"Lamar is in a very fragile state," a source told People.com. "The infection, that is being aggressively treated with strong intravenous antibiotics, is unfortunately not getting better. There are many concerns about his health."

The latest health crisis occurred a day after the couple formally called off its divorce, after a Los Angeles judge granted the stars' request to dismiss their signed divorce papers.

Khloe had originally filed to end their four-year union in December, 2013, but they didn't move forward with the court action until this summer (15), when they both finally signed the documents. However, the papers had not been finalized by a judge, allowing them to pull the petition and reportedly give their marriage another chance.

Khloe details her split from Lamar in the new book.
