Lamar Odom Accompanies Kardashian Family To Kanye West’s Fashion Show, Album Release Event

Odom was making his first appearance since his hospitalization last year at the New York Fashion Week show. Though he’s supposedly not back with his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, Odom seemed as friendly as ever with the reality TV star and the rest of the family.
Following the show, Odom posed with all of the Kardashian-Jenner family members who made it out for the event, including Kris Jenner, Kendall Jenner, Kourtney Kardashian, Kim Kardashian, Kylie Jenner and Caitlyn Jenner. West, crouching in the foreground, was in the picture as well.
When Odom entered Madison Square Garden, he was met with cheers by those in attendance, and was led to his seat by none other than Kanye West.
Odom was hospitalized last October after he was found unresponsive at a Las Vegas brothel from an apparent drug overdose. The former NBA star spent four days in a coma, and endured a long recovery. Though Odom is not expected to make a full recovery for several months, his appearance Thursday shows he’s on the mend.
“Khloé and Lamar made the decision together to fly to N.Y.C. It’s a fun trip for Lamar. They both seemed excited. Khloé will make sure that he is taken care of,” a source told People magazine. “For Lamar, it’s very important that he keeps regaining his old life. This will motivate him so he is able to keep focusing and work hard. Think of it as a reward. Flying on private jets across the country was his life before.”
“Khloé is nothing but protective of Lamar. She would never jeopardize his health,” the source added. “It’s very exciting that Lamar is getting back into his old world. No one deserves it more.”
