Former National Basketball Association (NBA) star Lamar Odom made his first public appearance on Kanye Wests’s Yeezy Season 3 fashion show at the Madison Square Garden in New York on Thursday.
The event was also a release party for West’s “The Life of Pablo” album. Lamar Odom has made a miraculous recovery since being found unconscious with alleged cocaine overdose at a Nevada brother last October.
The 36-year-old Lamar Odom was “nervous” before returning to public eye. However, the former Los Angeles Lakers forward thought it was important to visit the event, both for his own health and for Kanye West who had a big contribution towards his recovery, as reported by E! Online.
“Kanye invited him to come, and it’s a big deal for him to be able to come. For him to have this, you know, this is a milestone for him to be able to travel. So, baby steps. But this is a big one.” Kris Jener said to Entertainment Tonight.
Apparently, it was the music on “The Life of Pablo” which played a major role in the recovery of Lamar Odom. There was a time not so long ago when Lamar was completely bedridden. To recover in a manner as Lamar has and then board a private jet to West’s party can be considered a miracle.
Lamar Odom still has a long way to go before he can consider himself completely cured. But, the fact that he was able to walk into Madison Square Garden on his own feet and spend a quality time with his family shows his determination and will power over the last few months.
Hopefully everything goes well for Lamar Odom and he can get back to the limelight where he once featured in his life.
