Where is Lamar Odom? After leaving the hospital last week after a near-three month stay, the former professional NBA player has been the target of contradicting reports, some of which claim he is continuing to receive medical care at a live-in rehabilitation facility. Another report states that he is currently living with his soon-to-be ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian.
Although People Magazine claimed Lamar Odom would be moving into a live-in care facility earlier this month, around the time of his exit from the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, that has yet to be confirmed, and a separate report claims otherwise.
“The plan is for [Lamar Odom] to move in the next few days,” the insider told the magazine at the time. “At the center, [Lamar Odom] will continue to receive amazing therapy. He still has many challenges but is making progress. He is a fighter!”

However, one week later, Hollywood Life claimed Lamar Odom was living with Kardashian, a longtime star of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
“[Lamar Odom] is horrified after learning what he did to himself and the way he’s treated Khloe. The cheating, the lying and the deception. He’s embarrassed of his actions beyond belief. Now the reality in sinking about all the stunts he’s pulled on Khloe,” a source told Hollywood Life on January 13. “He can’t believe some of the things he’s done to the women he loves with all his heart.”
Although Lamar Odom hurt Kardashian repeatedly, both during their marriage and after, Kardashian remains supportive of her former partner and his ongoing recovery. In fact, added the source, she’s moved him into her Los Angeles home — and she’s even feeding and bathing him!
“She’s still there for [Lamar Odom]. He’s now living at her house as he goes through the rehabilitation process. She feeds him, helps bathe him. She never gave up on him. He’s grateful for her yet has a messed up feeling about what he’s put her through.”
Despite how Lamar Odom’s marriage to Kardashian ended (amid rumors of drug use and affairs with multiple women), Kardashian immediately boarded a private jet and flew to Las Vegas when she heard that he had been found unconscious at a legal brothel in the area. Even her sister, Kim Kardashian, and her mother, Kris Jenner, rushed to Lamar Odom’s side.

Meanwhile, on the currently airing 11th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, which premiered at the end of last year, Kardashian has been seen discussing Lamar Odom and their relationship on multiple occasions. While Kardashian has not yet mentioned his hospitalization, which is believed to have happened after production on the new episodes, she has talked about their impending divorce.
While Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar Odom in December 2013, their split has yet to be finalized. After Lamar Odom was taken to the hospital, both parties agreed to have the petition temporarily thrown out. Although news of their request led many to believe there was hope for a possible reconciliation, Kardashian has been clear on the show that she and Lamar Odom won’t be getting back together.
During conversations with her sisters, Kardashian revealed she was finally ready to move on from her marriage after months of questions. She also spoke to her mother, Kris Jenner, about giving her new cell phone number to Lamar Odom without asking, as did her sister, Kim, who was furious over the issue.
