This Is How Lamar Odom Is Celebrating His 36th Birthday
According to People, the basketball player’s estranged wife has arranged a small get-together at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center where Odom is currently seeking treatment. Complete with balloons, party hats, and a cake, the low-key bash is said to have been orchestrated by Kardashian, 31, as a way for Odom to connect with friends as he continues to recover from the multiple strokes he suffered after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel on Oct. 13.
“It’s something very small and very short but will make him feel amazing,” a source tells the publication. “Then Khloé will be with him for the rest of the day.”
Kardashian has reportedly reached out to Odom’s former teammates and two of his best friends to make an appearance at the small celebration. Though the Los Angeles Lakers are currently on the road, the insider says NBA star Kobe Bryant, who personally visited Odom when he was staying at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, will send a present and chat with Odom via FaceTime. A few Los Angeles Clippers players are also said to have been invited to pop by after their practice. Kardashian is also rumored to have gotten Odom’s former NBA trainer of 15 years to pay him a visit.
“It’s just a very small group of people because Lamar cannot handle too much stimulus, but the doctors are allowing a small group for a short time on his birthday,” the source says, adding that Kardashian has gotten approval for the small shindig from Odom’s doctors.
However, Friday will be quite the busy day for Kardashian. According to the invitation on Kris Jenner’s lavish, The Great Gastby themed birthday party, the reality star is also expected to appear at her mother’s 60th birthday party in West Hollywood that same night.
