Most people know that Lamar Odom has played for the Los Angeles Lakers and the San Antonio Spurs. Even if you’re not a sports fan, you probably know that Odom was married to Khloe Kardashian, and that the two tied the knot after knowing each other for just a few months. Of course, the marriage received a lot of public scrutiny, and the two had a reality show that was a spin-off of Keeping Up With the Kardashians.
Unfortunately, Lamar Odom was recently admitted to the hospital after having an adverse reaction to herbal supplements. It was reported that Odom took too much of a natural form of Viagra while visiting the Love Ranch in Nevada. He was unconscious when he was taken to the hospital, and recent reports reveal that he is now responsive and breathing on his own.

There’s no confirmation that the two are going to completely patch up their marriage, but it’s nice to see that Khloe is serving as his support system during this time.
