Destiny Odom completely lost it when she saw Lamar laying unconscious in his hospital bed. Although she was upset, an insider EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com that the young girl tried her best to stay strong as she placed her special teddy bear into Lamar’s arms.
Lamar Odom, 35, has been visited by many people since he was admitted into the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas, Nevada on Oct. 13, but none of the visits were as heartbreaking as Destiny Odom‘s, 17. The young girl was in tears when she first saw her dad laying there and immediately ran to his bedside, an insider EXCLUSIVELY revealed to HollywoodLife.com.
“Upon seeing her dad laying in his bed, Destiny lost it. Her spirit broke. Tears ran all down her face and she kissed her dad’s cheeks and hugged him,” an insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “She was trying to hold it together for her little brothers sake but it didn’t happen.” The whole process has been really hard on the 17-year-old. She, her brother, and her mother looked absolutely exhausted when they arrived in Las Vegas early Oct. 15 to be by Lamar’s side.
Hugs and kisses weren’t the only things Destiny had for the two time NBA champion. She also brought him a gift that he had given to her many years ago. “Many Christmases ago, Lamar bought her a little teddy bear that said ‘Daddy’s Girl’ on it,” the insider continued to reveal. “She brought it with her and placed it in his arms.” The 35-year-old was found unconscious in a luxury brothel on Oct. 13 and has been in a coma for a couple of days. Hopefully Lamar will be able to pull through and get better.
Destiny Tries To Speak To Lamar Through Tweets
Before Destiny landed in Las Vegas, Nevada to be by her father’s side while he’s in a coma, she tried to communicate with him via Twitter. The 17-year-old wrote some heartbreaking tweets, pleading for her father to not leave his family. “Soon I’ll be by your side and I’ll never let go. I love you daddy💔💔,” she wrote. So sad.
Our thoughts continue to remain with Lamar and his family during this difficult time.
