Lamar Odom could be set to make a miraculous recovery as sources are claiming he has spoken to ex-wife Khloe Kardashian after coming out of a coma.
The NBA veteran and former reality star, who was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel on Tuesday after a three-day ‘drink and drugs bender’, is believed to be on the mend and is breathing on his own.
A source told E! News he woke up and said “Hey, baby” to Khloe, who has been by his hospital bedside for days, before giving her a thumbs up sign and going back to sleep.
The source added that he is no longer using a breathing tube but could have suffered severe physical and mental impairment.
Khloe, 31, rushed to be by Lamar’s side with a number of other family members who have now left the hospital.
A hospital source also told Entertainment Tonight Lamar was asked if he wanted to see his kids and communicated ‘yes’.
A second source told Radar Online he woke up after his breathing tube was removed, saying: “He opened his eyes around 10:30 a.m. PT and made a sound like a whisper.”
Odom has two children with ex Liza Morales – Destiny, 17, and Lamar Odom Jr, 13 – who have been at the Sunrise Hospital in Las Vegas along with Khloe.
The kids broke their silence for the first time on Thursday, telling ET in a statement: “Thanks for your outpouring of prayers and support for our dad.
“We are here with our family and friends. We appreciate everyone respecting our privacy at this time. We ask for your continued prayers.”
Lamar’s condition is reportedly improving as his heart is on the mend, it has also been claimed. He is also said to have squeezed Kim Kardashian’s hand.
Sources told US gossip website TMZ that tests on Lamar’s heart on Friday morning revealed his heart function is “much better.”
Doctors have allegedly told Lamar’s friends and family that it’s a good sign of improvement.
The sportsman reportedly injected a deadly mixture of cocaine and heroin before he was found unconscious by two prostitutes.
