Lamar Odom allegedly suffered from a dozen strokes after he slipped into unconsciousness at a Nevada brothel, according to a new report.
The former Lakers star is not thought to have damaged his vital organs, according to a report by TMZ, but the strokes could have caused permanent damage to his ability to talk and walk.
At this time it is unknown what damage may have been caused.
It has been reported that Lamar is battling kidney failure as a result of the near-fatal incident that occurred at the Love Ranch in Nevada after a four-day binge with two prostitutes.
The athlete is described to be making “miraculous” progress as he continues to recover, and was even made to smile by wife Khloé Kardashian’s sisters – Kim and Kendall.
But Khloe remains by his side as she’s still “very concerned” while he stays in intensive care.
It’s possible that Khloe will miss Kim’s upcoming baby shower.
“Khloe had wanted to go to Kim’s shower, but Lamar is not doing that well,” an insider told Us Weekly.
“She still hasn’t left his side and is very concerned. She sleeps in the ICU with him.”
She has also reportedly cancelled her upcoming book tour.
The 31-year-old star, who also missed sister Kim’s birthday earlier this week, is set to release her debut book, Strong Looks Better Naked, in which she shares her secrets for finding strength of body, mind, and heart, on November 3, 2015.
But she’s now axed all of her promotional appearances so she can remain by Lamar Odom’s side in hospital in Los Angeles, according to US reports.
A source close to the Keeping Up with the Kardashians beauty told Entertainment Tonight: “Khloé hates to cancel or reschedule anything when it comes to work, but right now, her number one priority is getting Lamar back to good health.
“She won’t leave his side and knows that is the most important place she needs to be right now. She is cancelling her press commitments for the time being.”
Khloé, who called off her divorce from Lamar earlier this week as he recovers at Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre in West Hollywood after collapsing at a Nevada brothel last week following a drugs and alcohol binge, previously admitted her decision to end their marriage in December 2013 inspired her to adopt a healthier lifestyle and her new book allegedly goes into detail about his cheating and issues with drug abuse.
The former LA Lakers players, 35, underwent two emergency surgeries due to “chest issues” this week.
