The most recent Lamar Odom health update sees the divide between Odom’s recovery and estranged wife Khloe Kardashian’s seeming involvement in it continuing to widen. Khloe has received criticism from Lamar’s camp for what they’ve said is misinformation from the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star: namely, that Khloe has led observers to believe that she’s a part of Lamar’s day-to-day recovery, when, in fact, she’s continuing her ongoing publicity tour and prepping a brand-new KUWTK spinoff.
By contrast, one recent Lamar Odom health update saw the two-time NBA champion suffer a brief setback in his recovery at Los Angeles’ Cedars Sinai Medical Center. Odom had hoped to celebrate Christmas in a rehabilitation center, instead of in the hospital; while he’s still re-learning how to walk on his own, and wasn’t able to make it out in time for the holiday, Odom’s family did come to him–and oldest son Lamar Jr. posted to social media the first photograph of his dad since the Bunny Ranch incident.
In addition, Khloe remains committed to current boyfriend James Harden, the All-Star shooting guard for the NBA’s Houston Rockets. Khloe confused many fans (and enraged others) when she left Lamar’s bedside to attend Harden’s season opener last October; though their relationship was a bit rocky toward the end of last year, Khloe and James re-upped for 2016 with a sweet kiss at a Houston club on New Year’s Eve.
And, though Khloe has offered a handful of Lamar Odom health updates to this point in Odom’s recovery, she not long ago made it very clear that she intends to spend the coming year pulling away from her ailing husband. “I need to focus more on me” in 2016, said the 31-year-old reality television personality.
Part of that goal involves debuting the new trailer for her forthcoming reality spinoff Kocktails with Khloe, which Khloe says will involve “drinking games,” “the craziest stories,” and a wild “dinner party” at her house. KWK debuts on January 20th; its premiere was pushed back from December 9th following Lamar Odom’s hospitalization.
The newest Lamar Odom health update sees Lamar continuing to improve despite Khloe’s many outside commitments. It seems his children’s holiday visitation was a huge boost to Odom’s spirits: his kids attend school in New York City, and aren’t able to visit their father as often as they’d like. But, as Inquisitr reports, Odom “is doing way better” in the wake of their appearance. Said an insider, “He was so happy the kids were there with him for Christmas and they were so happy to be with him. The kids were happy…to bring him gifts, all of his favorite things that they wrapped up. They had so much fun. It was very emotional and very happy.”
