Lamar Odom has reportedly been discharged from hospital in Las Vegas and airlifted home to Los Angeles to continue his recovery.
The basketball star has been recovering at the Sunrise Hospital for nearly a week, after he was found unconscious at the Love Ranch South brothel in nearby Pahrump, Nevada, last Tuesday. It's reported he suffered a drug overdose after taking cocaine and a herbal pill similar to Viagra, and subsequently suffered a series of strokes and organ failure.
Following claims Lamar woke up from a coma on Friday and is breathing on his own, it has now been reported the sportsman left the hospital in Las Vegas on Monday. TMZ reports Lamar was flown by medical helicopter back to LA, where he will carry on with treatment for numerous unresolved medical issues.
The outlet also says he was accompanied by his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian, who has apparently been by his bedside the entire time. The reality star filed for divorce in 2013 but the pair remain close, with Lamar's first words after waking up from a coma said to be: "Hey baby".
Joining Khloé at the hospital was her mother Kris Jenner and sisters Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner. Her relatives briefly headed back to LA before returning to Las Vegas over the weekend, but Khloé is believed to have remained put until his move.
Kim and Kris have been positive about Lamar's recovery via social media over the last few days, with Kim being one of the first to reveal he's doing better. Alongside a photo of herself and Lamar, 35, on Instagram, the brunette beauty wrote: "I have faith in you. I believe in the power of prayer and positive energy! Thank you all for your prayers! Lammy- I'm so happy Kendall & I could make you smile today! God is good!"
