Lamar Odom underwent two emergency surgeries Thursday, and doctors are banning all visitors from his hospital room except Khloe Kardashian.

The two procedures involved “chest issues,” TMZ reports, but it’s unclear if it’s lung or heart related. A source said Odom is in a “fragile mental state” because of his health.

Doctors have also banned all visitors with the exception of Khloe Kardashian. (RELATED: Lamar Odom Has Huge Revelation: ‘I Am Done’)
