Lamar Odom latest update: Lakers star to celebrate Christmas 2015 with his children
Lamar Odom seems to be in high spirit. Despite the controversies surrounding him and his wife, the embattled former Lakers star is looking forward to spend holiday with his family.
By family he doesnâ€™t mean his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian who is increasingly spending most of her free time with her boyfriend James Harden. She seems to be keeping distance with Lamar Odom, more so after reports appeared that she may well have to pay the huge hospital bills that Lamar Odom has incurred while in hospital.
Reports suggest that by the end of the year, Lamar Odom hospital bill may cross a million dollar mark while further treatment may cost much more. The NBA star is still far from being healthy. His memory problem hasnâ€™t been solved as yet and he is unable to walk and talk coherently. This may be the reason that not a single picture of Odom has been allowed to appear in the media thus far.
Nonetheless Lamar Odom is looking forward to spending time with his family. A family source was quoted by E! News as saying, â€œThe family is continuing to be optimistic about having him into a rehab center before Christmasâ€¦Either way his kids are flying out to be with him, whether it’s at Cedars or the new center in Calabasas that he will be relocated to.â€
For the last more than a month now Lamar Odom has been recuperating at Los Angeles’ Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. A source told us this week that the 6-foot-10 athlete is visibly “struggling” with his rehabilitation and still is not walking entirely on his own, switching between a walker and a wheelchair. Odom is dad to 13-year-old Lamar Jr. and 17-year-old Destiny with ex Liza Morales. They also flew to be by their dad’s side when he was first hospitalized in Vegas. Now they are going to be back during holidays.
