Lamar Odom Brain Damage Update: Khloe Kardashian’s Husband Doesn’t Recognize Friends or Family, Only Speaks A Few Words
Is Lamar Odom braindead after his October 13th drug overdose at a brothel in Las Vegas? Lamar’s wife Khloe Kardashian (who insists there is nothing romantic about their relationship – and is still dating her boyfriend James Holden), had Lamar transported back to a hospital in Los Angeles after he was found unconscious and couldn’t breathe on his own.
The Kardashian Family has been very optimistic in interviews and on social media about Lamar’s condition – but according to a report from TMZ, it looks like the former NBA player is doing much worse than anyone is willing to admit. Not only will Lamar most likely never be back to his old self, but TMZ is saying that Odom might be braindead.
TMZ reported, “Our sources tell us Lamar has made little progression in the last couple weeks. We’re told he’s only able to speak a word here and there, and at times he seems “empty.” The scariest part … Lamar can’t recognize longtime friends and even family members when they come to visit. We’re told docs believe he’s suffered significant brain damage.”
It is not unusual for someone to be unconscious for a lengthy time, without getting sufficient oxygen to their brain, to wind up with severe brain damage. We knew that Lamar would probably never be the same person we used to see on Keeping Up With The Kardashians – but it’s horrible to think that he might not even know who Khloe Kardashian is.
