"We tell him he had a brain injury, but I can't tell him about how that brain injury was caused because it will set him back," Khloe, 31, explained, noting that Lamar has yet to specifically ask about it.

"He's really confused a lot so we have to remind him," she continued. "Every day is different."

Lamar was found unresponsive at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada in October, and was later placed in a medically induced coma after suffering a heart attack and organ failure. He is currently recovering at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Throughout the health scare, Khloe has been by Lamar's side and even called off her divorce from him so that she can help make medical decisions on his behalf.

"I'm there helping him and I love him and I've always loved him," she explained. "And that will never change, and I just feel like it's a really insensitive thing to fast forward a divorce."

Meanwhile, Khloe is in a relationship with NBA star James Harden.

The Strong Looks Better Naked author shared that it's "definitely a very unique situation" but she's "fine with it."
