It looks like Lamar Odom is making significant progress towards his recovery.
The former NBA star was seen with his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, at Kanye West‘s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show and album release party at Madison Square Garden in New York City on February 11. This marks Odom’s first public appearance since he was hospitalized after being found unconscious at a brothel in Nevada in last October.
According to Us Weekly entertainment director, Ian Drew, the entire arena erupted in cheers as Kanye West walked Odom to his seat. He sat between Khloe and Kendall Jenner during the show.
As West played the new songs from his upcoming album, T.L.O.P, or The Life Of Pablo, Odom was clearly enjoying himself as he had a wide smile across his face the entire time. He was also seen nodding along to West’s new work.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Kris Jenner revealed why Odom wanted to attend West’s fashion show and album release party. She said, “Kanye invited him to come, and it’s a big deal for him to be able to come. …this is a milestone for him to be able to travel. This is a huge step for [Odom].”
Jenner also noted that Odom was particularly interested in traveling to New York for the show because West had been “instrumental” in his recovery.
Odom was released from the hospital last month. While his recovery will obviously take time, it is very apparent that the Kardashian-Jenner family is giving him the utmost support. That’s family.
