Former NBA star Lamar Odom is laying down all of his cards in a hope to win back his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian. The 36-year old former Los Angeles Clippers forward made his first public appearance in the reality television show “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” wherein he thanked Kanye West for saving his life.
His appearance marked his first since he was hospitalized after a near death experience back in October 2015 wherein he was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas. Odom told Khloe that West saved his life and that it is but proper that he would give support to Kanye West and his Yeezy Season 3 fashion show.
In the episode as reported by ET, Kourtney Kardashian asked if Lamar had visited heaven when he was in coma and in life support. Odom responded that he “real in-depth dreams with people who passed on,” to which Khloe added, “I think he went to heaven from the conversations he has with me.”
Despite Odom’s experience, Khloe stressed his concern for her estranged husband and hope that Odom would take the next step so that he would go smoothly towards the road to recovery. Odom in return tried wooing Khloe, but she reminded him that he needs to take care of his health more than anything else.
“I kinda want him to be a little more afraid. Bad things can happen if you go back to that life. This is, like, a second chance. [Our marriage has] been a little tainted … we need to cut our ties, and we can figure it back out,” she said.

Khloe has explained time and again that she has reconciled with Odom but has only withdrawn the divorce she filed so that she might assist him in making medical decisions during his recovery. But this road to recovery has taken many humps along the road as Odom was caught drinking inside an Irish pub the night before he went to Church with the Kardashian to celebrate Easter Sunday.
Then again this Sunday as Odom broke again his promise to Khloe that he would not drink again as he was spotted drinking at the Beverly Center as reported by TMZ. It stated that as Odom’s friends where checking out some shoes in the area, he went to check on the Cognac inside a bar and was billed for $60 and then left the area in a flash.
It was also reported because of this stint by Odom that Khloe has given up hope that he would change for the better. She even expressed her thoughts with a very emotional post on her social media account. The return to drinking escapades of Odom had her thought of bringing back the divorce on the discussion table as well. For his part, Odom has stated that he does not want to accept any help from friends and even from Khloe herself.
