Lamar Odom has traveled to New York City for Fashion Week with Khloe Kardashian.
Ahead of his brother-in-law Kanye West’s fashion show for Yeezy Season 3, the former NBA pro took a flight out of Los Angeles with the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, and a short time later, he was photographed walking around in the Big Apple. The public appearance marks the first time Lamar Odom was photographed walking since his October 2015 overdose in Nevada.

On February 11, Entertainment Tonight confirmed that Lamar Odom was in New York City with his wife and her family, and revealed photos of the couple entering the hotel where they were staying with the family.
Just prior to Lamar Odom’s arrival in New York City, Kardashian spoke to a couple of fans, via E! News, offering an update on his ongoing recovery.
“[Lamar Odom]’s good, he’s so good,” Kardashian gushed. “It’s just insane what the human body can do. We went on a hike the other day, Kim Kardashian, myself and [Lamar Odom]. It’s just crazy how quick things change and you never really know and that’s such a blessing. And I believe in God and praying and I’m so grateful.”
On Sunday, ahead of the Super Bowl, Kim shared a photo from their hike, and Lamar Odom appeared to be visible in the side of the photo, although it wasn’t clear if it was him, or someone else.

In October, over two years after separating from Kardashian, Lamar Odom traveled to a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada, where he partied for three days before being found unconscious after a drug overdose. For a few days, Lamar Odom was in a coma, and after he awoke, he was transferred to the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, where he remained for nearly three months.
Since being released from the hospital in January, Lamar Odom has been living in a home in Calabasas, California, nearby the home of his wife, and spending tons of time with Kardashian and her entire family.
“When [Lamar Odom] isn’t in physical therapy he is with Khloe. They continue to be closer than ever. No one really knows what will happen with them in the future,” a source told E! News, adding that Lamar Odom “has a very positive attitude, Khloe is so proud of him. She encourages and motivates him everyday.”
Although a Lamar Odom-Khloe Kardashian reconciliation has yet to occur, the E! News source seemed to hint that it was a possibility, which isn’t too surprising considering Kardashian recently split from her former boyfriend, James Harden, after a months-long relationship.
After Lamar Odom was hospitalized, Kardashian’s relationship with Harden was put on the back burner as she tended to his recovery, and while they remained together for a few months, and Kardashian traveled to Houston on occasion, the distance between them appears to have been to much to handle.
As for Lamar Odom’s recovery, the source added, “Right now, they have him focusing on lower body strength exercises. He makes a little bit of progress everyday, but it’s still baby steps. He went from not being able to even stand on his own, to now, he is almost power-walking.”
