Lamar Odom Update: Christmas with the Kids
We’ve been following the unfortunate case of Lamar Odom since the beginning in October. As you surely remember, the former basketball star and reality TV personality was found unresponsive in a room of a Las Vegas brothel after an overdose of cocaine and herbal Viagra. Since then he has suffered multiple strokes and brain damage, but has shown improvement since awaking from his coma.
Now things are look at least a little brighter for the star. According to eOnline, the father of two will be able to spend Christmas with his children at his side. While his estranged wife Khloe and other family members continue to urge him to enter rehab and hope he will be in treatment by Christmas Day, his 13 year old son and 17 year old daughter will fly to California to spend the holiday with their father no matter where he is.
Reports of Lamar’s true condition vary, with some sources reporting his progress is steady and positive, and others stating that his brain damage is extensive and that he will never be fully independent again.
Wife Khloe Kardashian continues to be criticized by those closely monitoring this story. Regardless, she is a constant presence by Lamar’s side, even dividing her attention while her sister, Kim Kardashian-West, gave birth in a room in the same hospital. Some people continue to place blame for Lamar’s unfortunate circumstances on the fame and frenzy which surrounds the reality TV family at all times. Reportedly his trip to the brothel all stemmed from an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians in which they spoke ill of him and a recently deceased friend.
Do you think Lamar will recover enough to lead an independent life? Let us know what you think in the comments!
