Lamar Odom, Khloe Kardashian

Lamar Odom Health Update! Plus, Khloe Kardashian And James Harden Have Not Split

Is Lamar Odom doing as well as reports claim? In recent weeks, there have been multiple reports regarding Lamar Odom’s positive progress at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, but while many have said he will soon be heading to a rehabilitation center in Calabasas, that has yet to happen. Instead, after two-and-a-half months, Lamar Odom remains hospitalized, with no confirmed end in sight.

As Reality TV World reported on December 30, Lamar Odom is recovering from a drug overdose he suffered in October.

After parting at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch in Pahrump, Nevada, Lamar Odom was found unconscious by two women working at the legal brothel, and right away, they called 911. For days after his drug overdose, Lamar Odom was in a coma, but eventually, with family and wife Khloe Kardashian at his side, he awoke and was transferred to Los Angeles, where he remains.

As for the relationship between Lamar Odom’s wife and Houston Rockets player James Harden, they are said to still be together, despite an OK! Magazine report claiming Harden dumped her over the holidays due to her family’s meddling in their relationship.

“She is with him now in Houston. She went to his game last night and bowling,” an insider told People Magazine on December 30. “They are still together and having fun.”

Khloe began dating Harden over the summer, but due to Lamar Odom’s hospitalization, they haven’t been able to spend much time together, especially considering Harden’s NBA schedule makes it difficult as it is.

“It hasn’t been easy. James obviously has wanted to see her more and be with her in [Texas] more, but she’s felt like she needed to stay in L.A. to be with her family and to deal with [Lamar Odom] stuff. That has put some strain on things.”

In November, Khloe spoke of Lamar Odom’s condition, claiming he wasn’t fully aware of what was going on around him.

“I don’t know if he fully understands everything, but I know he is grateful… and I’m not doing it for validation. I’m not doing it to get praise back,” she explained to Entertainment Tonight Online, adding that Lamar Odom did know about her relationship with Harden.

“He understands I’m dating James, but it’s not like — he’s not thinking about a relationship. Like, he can barely think about himself right now, if that makes sense.”

A second source spoke to the site, revealing, “[Lamar Odom] is speaking and is able to communicate, but it’s obvious confusion.”

On episodes of the currently airing 11th season of Keeping Up With The Kardashians, Lamar Odom has been mentioned a number of times due to his impending divorce from Khloe. During one particular episode of the show, seen earlier this month, Khloe feuded with her mother, Kris Jenner, after learning she gave her new cell phone number to Lamar Odom without asking Khloe first. Khloe’s sister, Kim, was also upset with Jenner over the incident, and bad parenting allegations were brought up.

Lamar Odom and Khloe got married in 2009 after just 30 days together, and their wedding and marriage was featured on Keeping Up With The Kardashians. The couple also starred in their own spinoff, Khloe & Lamar, which aired on the E! Network for two seasons before Khloe and Lamar Odom chose to end the show.

While Lamar Odom’s ongoing divorce from Khloe was recently called off, the reality star is still planning to end her marriage eventually.
