Lamar Odom Makes First Public Appearance Since Overdose

Former NBA player Lamar Odom appeared in public for the first time since an overdose left him in a coma in October, attending Kanye West’s launch of his new LP on Thursday in Madison Square Garden.

Odom is the estranged husband of Khloe Kardashian, whose sister Kim Kardashian is married to West. Khloe Kardashian, as well as most of the rest of the Kardashian clan, was also in attendance.

The former Los Angeles Laker was hospitalized on Oct. 12 after being found unconscious from a drug overdose at a Nevada brothel. He fell into a coma after his condition worsened, with problems with his heart, kidneys and lungs reported.

While his prognosis initially looked bleak, a few days later, on Oct. 16, Odom awakened from his coma and was able to breathe on his own. He went months, however, without making any public appearances and few updates.

West’s big event came after the rapper announced the name of his seventh album, “The Life of Pablo,” on Wednesday night. The live stream event is being streamed live to 700 theaters in 23 countries, as well as on music subscription service Tidal. Tickets to the listening party sold out within ten minutes of their release last week.
