The Kardashian family hasn’t told Lamar Odom why he’s in the hospital.

“We tell him that he had a brain injury, but we can’t tell him how that brain injury was caused, because that will set him back,” Khloe Kardashian said during an interview with Ellen DeGeneres that airs Monday.

“He’s never asked why he’s here. He’s really confused a lot — sometimes he knows who the president is and his birthday, and sometimes he thinks he’s 26, and I say ‘I bet you wish you were 26, so do I!'” (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: Brothel Owner Says Lamar Odom Wanted Transgender Prostitute)

“He’s able to smile and laugh at appropriate times, which is awesome.”

In another preview, Kardashian talks about her relationship with James Harden, who she called her “boyfriend.”

“I mean we have to communicate a lot. And he’s really supportive and great,” Kardashian said. “I think the press and everything they make it more complicated.” (RELATED: Family Gives Update On Lamar Odom’s Condition. It Doesn’t Sound Good.)

“I think inside our circle we know exactly what’s going on and I feel sometimes it’s crazy that, yes we live so much of our life in public, but that I have to explain every step when that’s kind of frustrating.”
