Lance Bass has applauded the Kardashian family for dropping everything to be by Lamar Odom's side following his hospitalisation.

N Sync star Lance is a close friend of the Kardashian-Jenner family and one of the few who has been to visit them at home since Lamar was found unresponsive at a Nevada brothel earlier this month.

According to People magazine, he told reporters at a recent event that he was proud of the Kardashian clan for putting family first.

Lance said: "I was just over at Kris's 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."

Lamar's estranged wife Khloe Kardashian was by his side the night of his collapse, while Kim, Kourtney, Kylie, Kendall and Kris all visited the hospital in Las Vegas.

Teenager Kylie cut a live broadcast on her app short to be with the family, while pregnant Kim rescheduled her baby shower and model Kendall flew home from Shanghai Fashion Week via London early.

Now, former basketball player Lamar is being treated at a hospital in Los Angeles, where he's said to be doing better but still has a long road to recovery ahead.

Lamar said of Khloe withdrawing divorce papers: "I think when anybody goes through some tragedy like that it's going to bring you closer, and you could always tell that she was so madly in love with him this whole time, but he had this problem."

Khloe is still legally Lamar's wife which means she's making the medical decisions for him.

She broke her silence on the situation last week, posting a statement to her official website saying: "I am so thankful to family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar. I also want to take a moment to thank everyone at Sunrise Hospital, including the amazing doctors and nurses for their kindness and diligent work."

"Under their amazing care, incredible strides have been made," Khloe continued. "You can never be prepared for an experience like this, but without the outpouring of love and endless prayers that Lamar has received and the strength I was given from my loved ones, it would have been difficult to endure. Thank you for your continued supper. God is great!"
