Is Lamar Odom brain damaged? Lamar Odom is still lying in a hospital bed – where he has been since his October 13 drug overdose in Las Vegas. Various reports have hit the Internet, since his hospitalization. Some outlets have flooded the media with misinformed reports, implying that Lamar Odom is on the mend and making amazing process. Those reports couldn’t be any more inaccurate and Odom is actually believed to have serious brain damage since his overdose.
A new TMZ report reveals that Lamar Odom is spaced out the majority of the time, and doctors are concerned because half of the time he doesn’t even recognize people in his hospital room. The website dishes, “Lamar Odom’s in rough shape — having a tough time with communication and mobility — and we’re told it’s so bad, he can’t recognize some close friends and family. Our sources tell us Lamar has made little progression in the last couple weeks. We’re told he’s only able to speak a word here and there, and at times he seems “empty.” The scariest part … Lamar can’t recognize longtime friends and even family members when they come to visit. We’re told docs believe he’s suffered significant brain damage.”
It’s interesting that Lamar Odom is believed to have brain damage – seeing as how he signed legal documents to have his divorce to Khloe Kardashian called off. Obviously, if Lamar can’t even recognize some of his family members – any legal papers he signs are not legitimate.
But, if the reports are true and Lamar is in this bad of shape, then that explains why Khloe wanted to call of the divorce so that she could make medical and financial decisions for her soon-to-be ex-husband.
What do you guys think? Will Lamar Odom ever live a normal life again? Was it wrong for Khloe to have him signing documents regarding their divorce if he obviously isn’t in his right mind? Let us know what you think in the comments below!
