Despite months of treatment since his drug overdose in October, former Los Angeles Lakers star Lamar Odom may never be the same again, Radar Online reported Tuesday, citing sources. Khloé Kardashian’s estranged husband was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas in October and is currently admitted at the Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles.
“The most difficult aspect of Lamar’s recovery, apart from learning to walk, has been dealing with the ongoing incontinence. He has been unable to control his bladder muscles and the urge to go. He refuses to wear an adult diaper, and is going through numerous pairs of underwear daily,” a source said, according to Radar Online, adding: “Doctors are hopeful that as Lamar continues to recover, the incontinence won’t be an issue.”
The source also reportedly said that he “has tried to hide the incontinence from visitors as it’s obviously very embarrassing for him. Everyone has been very supportive and no one has joked about it. It’s just terribly humbling and sad to see Lamar struggling.”
Since his medical crisis began, Kardashian is said to have been by Odom’s bedside. But over the past few weeks, she has only been visiting Odom at the hospital from time to time. The former couple had initially dismissed their divorce due to Odom’s impending health condition, but Kardashian said late last month that the divorce was still going forward.
Kardashian has since been slammed by Odom’s friends and family for not getting back together with him. A report last week also said that Rob Kardashian was “disgusted” with Kardashian for letting Odom believe that she would get back together with him, yet continuing to date Houston Rockets player James Harden.
“Rob hates how she’s strung Lamar along and believes that’s why he went even further off the rails than he would have had she just set him free,” a source said, according to the report last week, adding: “She [Khloé] led him to believe there was a chance of a reunion for so long that he put everyone on hold and had to sit there while she was wined and dined by all these other guys.”
Odom’s former wife Liza Morales also reportedly took a dig at Khloé through her message for Thanksgiving last week by saying: “I can’t forget to thank the people that knew my children since toddler age, that turned their backs, and prioritized business relationships,” adding: "You see, it’s not about who was there cheering in the stands at basketball games. No, this is real life. What matters is who was with you when you were at your lowest.”
