Lamar Odom left Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles on Wednesday, January 6. His estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, secretly moved him, avoiding any unwanted attention. Odom, 36, was moved to a private facility that has been set up as a rehab near Kardashian’s home. The move was made quickly and without notifying even Odom’s family.
Family spokeswoman Alvina Alston confirmed Friday that Odom was released from the hospital earlier in the week. Alston says Odom’s family is proud of what’s termed his "miraculous and continued improvement" but isn’t providing details of his condition.
It’s been a long recovery process for Odom. Authorities said the former NBA player was on life support after consuming alcohol and a substance described as "herbal Viagra" during a $75,000 visit to the Love Ranch brothel in Nevada. Investigators believe he overdosed on cocaine and other drugs during a three-day stay.
Odom regained consciousness a few days later and was said to have begun communicating with family. The 36-year-old then began a regiment of "aggressive" therapy to try to repair his speech and reportedly was making steady progress.
US Weekly also reports that Odom is now walking without a walker. In December, it was reported that he could "barely walk on his own."
