Lamar Odom received a special visit earlier this week. Following the birth of Saint West, the son of Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, the rapper went to see the ailing husband of his sister-in-law, Khloe Kardashian. During his visit, he let Lamar Odom hear his whole album.
On December 8, the Source revealed news of West’s visit to Lamar Odom, noting a TeamKanyeDaily report that claimed Lamar Odom “loved” the album. The site also revealed Kim had stopped by to see Lamar Odom, as well.
Lamar Odom was hospitalized in October after suffering what has been reported as a drug overdose at a legal brothel in Pahrump, Nevada. After being discovered by women working at the facility, Lamar Odom was taken to a nearby hospital and said to be in a coma. Right away, Khloe rushed to his side and didn’t leave him until over a week later, when he was transferred from Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital to Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center, where he remains under medical care.

Lamar Odom married Khloe Kardashian in 2009, after knowing her for just 30 days. During their marriage, the couple filmed their own Keeping Up with the Kardashians spinoff, Khloe & Lamar, which aired on the E! Network for two seasons. Then, in 2013, rumors began swirling, claiming Lamar Odom had cheated on his wife and had been using drugs behind her back.
Although Khloe attempted to make her marriage to Lamar Odom work for the next several months after the rumors, she ultimately filed for divorce in December of 2013. However, despite Khloe’s filing, the paperwork wasn’t immediately finalized, and at the time Lamar Odom fell ill, she was still his wife, which left her in charge of calling the shots for his medical care.
During Sunday’s new episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe spoke of her relationship with Lamar Odom, announcing her plans to go through with their divorce. Below is what she told the cameras during a confessional, according to a Life & Style report on December 7.
“I think filing for divorce is the worst thing in the world — you feel like you’re hurting everybody, but I need to live my life the best that I know how and do what I feel is best. I still very much love [Lamar Odom], but I need to move forward. I don’t feel you ever really have peace from walking away from any situation that you wish ended up differently.”
After Lamar Odom was hospitalized, Khloe and her husband filed paperwork to have their divorce proceedings terminated, but at this time, it is still believed they will eventually divorce.

As Lamar Odom continues to recover from his alleged overdose, the Kardashian family, including his wife, is in the midst of production on Keeping Up with the Kardashians Season 11, which is currently airing on the E! Network. But when it comes to his role on the show, Lamar Odom doesn’t appear to be a part of the new season — at least not yet.
While the former professional athlete has been mentioned on the show, despite Khloe’s relationship with James Harden, he has not yet been seen and isn’t expected to be seen this year due to his ongoing hospitalization.
It has not yet been revealed when Lamar Odom will come home from the hospital, but according to a recent report by Radar Online, he will not be moving in with his wife.
