Lamar Odom is out and about! For the first time since leaving the hospital, the former NBA star has been photographed out in public — and he’s looking pretty good. Check out the pics right here!
He’s on the mend! Lamar Odom, 36, is recovering from his drug overdose in a rehab facility, and it looks like his life is slowly getting back to normal. He was even photographed being chauffeured around Los Angeles on Jan. 8…just like any old regular day!
In the pics, the 36-year-old can be seen in the front seat of a car through the windshield. He’s sporting a somewhat serious expression, but overall, it’s just good to see he’s able to get outside and take part in everyday tasks like driving around. It’s unclear who was driving the vehicle, or where he was headed, but the outing comes two days after he was transferred from a Los Angeles hospital to a rehab facility on Jan. 6.

Khloe Kardashian, 31, orchestrated the transfer, which was top secret. Lamar nearly died after his drug overdose at a brothel in Nevada back on Oct. 13, and had been recovering in the hospital for almost three months before he was finally deemed well enough to continue his treatment in a rehab center.
The former Lakers star is clearly well enough to take small trips like this one, but he also still has a long road ahead of him. Although he’s reportedly able to walk without assistance, he’s continued to have trouble with speech and memory, so it will be an ongoing recovery for many months to come. But we’re pulling for him, of course!
We haven’t seen much of LamLam since he’s been in the hospital, although his son, Lamar Jr., took to Instagram after the holidays to share a photo of himself with his dad and sister, Destiny. Lamar obviously doesn’t look completely like his old self, but just the fact that he survived this near-fatal incident is a miracle.
“I’m so proud of the strength that he has to fight this battle,” Khloe said at a TCA panel on Jan. 6. “That’s his battle and I’m so grateful for everybody’s love and concern, because I think it’s coming from a good place.” She added that Lamar is “doing amazing,” and it definitely looks like it from these new pics. Phew!
