Basketball star Lamar Odom has pulled through his medical crisis, emerging from a coma on Friday after being found unresponsive in a Nevada brothel days earlier.
TMZ.com reports that his doctors say Odom, who is still legally married to Khloe Kardashian, faces a long, difficult rehabilitation process — and they believe his body has suffered an undetermined amount of permanent damage.
Odom and Kardashian signed final divorce papers some time ago, but a judge has yet to declare the divorce final. The report notes that it may not become official for two to four months.
But TMZ notes that Kardashian, who has not publicly discussed her plans regarding Odom, is expected to be with him during the rehab process — which is expected to take months.
“We’re told Lamar will have physical, speech, and other therapists working with him for the foreseeable future,” TMZ reports. “As for Khloe, our sources say she has vowed to stay with him through the entire ordeal … and that includes all therapy.”
The report notes that Kardashian has been dating James Harden. The Houston Rockets star has expressed support for Kardashian’s vigil with Odom.
TMZ adds: “One thing we do know … Khloe dragged her feet for more than a year after filing for divorce, because she still loved Lamar and wanted to save him.”
