Lamar Odom is still battling to recover, nearly a month after he was found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel. The news of the former NBA star’s health comes amid his involvement in a love triangle with his wife Khloé Kardashian and her boyfriend James Harden.
“Lamar is doing OK, but by no means is he back to his old self,” a source told Hollywood Life. “Standing and walking for long periods of time is a struggle,” the source added. “So is talking to some extent and his memory has been effected. To be honest, he may never fully recover.”
In a new interview with Extra, Kardashian said that her estranged husband is “doing better” and is off machines.
“Some days he’s really strong and some days he’s weaker,” the 31-year reportedly said. The reality TV star added that while “no machines are helping him,” it will still be a “long road” for Odom.
“He’s definitely doing better which is awesome, every day is better,” Kardashian told Extra’s Terri Seymour. “He’s off of all machines. He is alive on his own, and no machines are helping him, which is great. But he still has a lot of physical and cognitive therapy to go through, so it’s a long road for him.”
Kardashian called off her divorce with Odom following his hospitalization on Oct. 13. However, she has continued to date Houston Rockets guard.
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that Odom does not want to be the other man in Kardashian’s life. Odom reportedly wants to be out of the love triangle.
“Lamar doesn’t love Khloé spending time with James,” another source told Hollywood Life. “Lamar told her if she really wants to be with him then she should just leave him alone.”
An insider told People magazine that Odom “keeps asking everyone about Khloé's new guy James."
Meanwhile, some reports claimed that Kardashian is confused with both Odom and Harden in her life. But, on Monday night, the 31-year-old opened up about her marriage during a book-signing in Hollywood.
“I'm still married for a multitude reasons, but intimacy is not one of them," the reality TV star said, according NBC News. She said Odom is "doing better every day for sure -- which is a blessing -- but it's going to be a long road, and he has to walk that road. He has to walk that road, it's going to be a long time."
