 Lance Bass believes the Kardashians “saved” Lamar Odom's life after the basketball star was found unconscious after a four-day binge at a Nevada brothel.

 Lance Bass claims the Kardashians “saved” Lamar Odom's life.

 The former * NSYNC star - who is a close pal of the famous family - says they have rallied round to support Khloé Kardashian's estranged husband after he was found unconscious following a four-day drink and drug fuelled binge at a Nevada brothel.

 He said: “They're doing good. I was just over at Kris' house the other day and - I mean, they put their lives on hold. I give it up to those girls. Love them or hate them, they really stepped up to the plate and saved his life.”

 And the 36-year-old singer says the family have “high hopes” that the basketball star, 35, will make a full recovery.

 He told Us Weekly magazine: “It's devastating. This is like [Kris'] son and it's really sad. He's improving daily, which is great. They have high hopes.”

 Meanwhile, the 31-year-old television personality has reportedly given Lamar an “ultimatum” to sort himself out or she will file for divorce once again.

 A source said: “Khloé is annoyed by people on social media who are calling her a naive for dropping the divorce. She knows better than anyone about Lamar's battle with drugs.

 “Feelings aside, she's game to drop the divorce party because Lamar has no one else in his life to help him. Lamar is on the Kardashian health insurance policy and he needs to stay on.”
