Pray for Lamar
Lamar Odom has had one tough year, but thankfully, he has survived it all. The former NBA player was hospitalized late last year after he was found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada due to an alleged drug overdose. After going into a coma, many medical experts believed that he would never be the same, let alone even possibly walk or talk again. Fortunately, he was able to overcome all of that within a few months, and earned a second chance at life. Now, the baller may have fell off the wagon once again, and his family is doing all they can to intervene.
Lamar Odom was released from the hospital earlier this year
After overcoming internal damages from an alleged drug overdose in 2015, the former NBA player made his first public appearance at Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show in New York City. Thousands of people were in attendance, and were ecstatic to see the athlete back in better spirits and health.
He kept himself surrounded by loved ones
Odom was spotted attending Kobe Bryant’s final basketball game at the end of the NBA season, as the superstar had previously visited him in the hospital. Lamar was given a ton of support from the Kardashian family, as well as his kids and ex-wife. Unfortunately, not long after, he was spotted out drinking at bars, and allegedly found with drugs at his home in Los Angeles.
His family set up an intervention for him this week
His aunt, JaNean Mercer, his kids, and his ex-wife Liza Morales all came together to try and give the baller a spontaneous intervention in New York City. According to reports, the baller entered the building where they were holding it, but quickly walked out when he realized what was going on. Sources say he is still in the city.
