Lamar Odom Transported to L.A.
Former NBA star Lamar Odom left a Las Vegas hospital and is now in Los Angeles.
The pro athlete will continue his recovery after being found unconscious at a Nevada brothel last week, Associated Press reports.
Odom was transported via helicopter from Las Vegas’ Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center around 5 p.m. Monday, according to Alvina Alston, publicist for Odom’s aunt JaNean Mercer.
A statement released by Odom’s family thanked the hospital and Odom’s fans and said his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, his father and his two children are with him.
“He continues to make miraculous progress, taking a few steps in Los Angeles,” the statement said.
The former Lakers forward was found in extremely critical condition at the Love Ranch brothel in rural Nevada on Oct. 13. He regained consciousness and communicated for the first time Friday.
Workers at the brothel say he drank alcohol and took herbal Viagra supplements. Reportedly, he told one of the women at the establishment he had done cocaine, but the brothel says they did not see him take any drugs.
According to Love Ranch owner Dennis Hof, Odom arrived Oct. 10 for a four-day stay and spent $75,000 on two women who accompanied him in a VIP suite.
We are glad that Mr. Odom is making significant progress.
