Lamar Odom has awoken from his coma and spoken to his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, three days after he was found unconscious at a brothel.
According to E! when Lamar opened his eyes, he looked at Khloé and said “hey baby“, gave her a thumbs up and went back to sleep. At the moment, his ex-wife, kids as well as the Kardashians/Jenner are with him as he shows more signs of recovery.
He is also reportedly no longer using a breathing tube, a huge step in his road to recovery.
This follows similar reports from several other outlets that Odom had opened his eyes and asked to see his kids. A source at the hospital told Entertainment Tonight that Odom opened his eyes and was somehow able to communicate ‘yes’ when asked if he wanted to see his daughter Destiny and son Lamar Jr.
TMZ’s latest report is that Odom was able to breathe on his own when doctors took him off a ventilator. However, the sources said that Odom is ‘not out of the woods’ and it’s unclear if he will able to continue breathing on his own long-term.
The 35-year-old is believed to have suffered a stroke after overdosing on drugs during a four-day $75,000 bender at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch brothel in Pahrump, Nevada.
While his family’s prayers have been answered, it’s still uncertain what long term damage the former LA Laker faces.
