So amazing! It turns out that Kanye West’s new album is what helped Lamar Odom learn to speak again. His estranged wife Khloe Kardashian is sharing how that form of music therapy was a huge part of his major recovery breakthrough.
We’re all loving Kanye West‘s new album The Life of Pablo, but the person who it had the most impact on is none other than Lamar Odom, 36, – because it was instrumental in his gaining the ability to speak again! His estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, 31, has made the shocking revelation that Yeezy coming to the hospital and playing his new songs for Lammy is what helped him fight so hard to finally become verbal.
“Kanye was really instrumental in Lamar’s getting better. Kanye would come to the hospital and play his album for Lamar and Lamar couldn’t speak at this time, and music is definitely a form of therapy. But Lamar would say he could understand everything, but he couldn’t get the words out and he felt really trapped within his own body, which was terrifying and we were afraid he was going to stay like that,” Khloe explained to Ross Matthews on Hollywood Today Live Feb. 23.
“So when he was able to finally speak he would always say ‘Kanye really helped me,’ I loved that he would come and do that for him.” Get Khloe’s book “Strong Looks Better Naked” by clicking here.
As for the ex-NBA star’s first public appearance at Kanye’s Madison Square Garden fashion show, Khloe was totally not up for his attending, but knew how much it would mean for Lamar to be there to support Kanye. “I did not want him to go to New York. I’m so protective…is it too much stimulus for his brain? Everyone cleared him and he was good to go and it meant so much to him, to Lamar.”
“I thought it was so dope of Kanye to want to walk out with Lamar and just that feeling of feeling really good for Lamar to do that on his own. I was happy for him.” So are we Khloe, it was great to see how much progress Lamar has made after his near-fatal medical crisis!
