NBA star Lamar Odom has reportedly been on the road to recovery ever since he was found unconscious on his brother room in Las Vegas.
However, despite his promising recovery, it was also reported that he is struggling with severe memory loss.
When Lamar was brought to the hospital, he was unconscious and was on life support. Fortunately, he regained consciousness and is still slowly recovering. He is now reportedly able to walk and converse with his family and close friends for a short period of time.
Sadly, new reports indicate that Lamar is now suffering from extreme memory loss. Apparently, the severity of his brain’s damage caused him to lose a lot of important memories – sometimes even his own name.
“He forgets a lot of people’s names, sometimes even his own. He definitely has some memory loss,” a source close to the athlete revealed to publication Entertainment Tonight.
The source also added that while he was initially able to walk, he is still having a hard time dealing with his basic motor activites. Still, they see progress in the 36-year-old basketball player so that’s something to look after.
On the other hand, Lamar’s estranged wife Khloe Kardashian still did not leave his side despite their plans to divorce. The ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians’ star reportedly put their divorce process on hold because she just wanted to focus on helping Lamar get better.
However, this does not go to say that they will be reuniting as a pair. Khloe, 34, is now dating another NBA star James Harden and plans to make their relationship despite everything that she’s going through right now.
Lamar was found unconscious in his brother room in Las Vegas last October. He reportedly collapsed due to sex drug and cocaine overdose. He was unconscious and was on life support for about a week before he finally regained consciousness.
