Lamar Odom Spotted for the First Time Since Leaving Hospital
Lamar Odom is back to his normal life.
Just days after moving to a rehab facility, the NBA star was spotted outside of the hospital for the first time in nearly three months. In photos obtained by TMZ, he was seen being driven around in Los Angeles, Calif. on Friday afternoon (Jan. 8, 2016), keeping his head down as he rode in the car.
Odom has been recovering at LA hospital Cedars-Sinai after suffering a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel in October. He reportedly cannot yet walk on his own and has suffered from cognitive impairment, speech problems, and kidney damage since the health scare.
His estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian – who has visited him throughout his time in the hospital – has high hopes for his full recovery. “He’s definitely doing better and better every day which I’m so grateful for,” she told ET. “And I can attest that the hospital has been superb with keeping his privacy but also his will and fight to want to get better.
The rehab facility is located near to the reality star’s home in Calabasas, so she’ll be able to visit and keep an eye on his ongoing care.
