Lamar Odom is reportedly struggling to remember his own name.

The 36-year-old basketball star has been recovering in hospital in Los Angeles after collapsing in a Nevada brothel following a reported alcohol and drugs binge in October but sources close to him have claimed that his progress is extremely slow.

“He’s not doing great. His speech is still slurred and he can barely walk on his own yet. He forgets a lot of people’s names – sometimes even his own. He definitely has some memory loss,” an insider told Entertainment Tonight.

Lamar is being supported by his estranged wife Khloe – who put their divorce on hold in order to continue making medical decisions for him – and her family.

The source added: “They all pop in to see him in hospital, including Khloe.”

Meanwhile, there was some good news for Lamar recently when it was revealed that he is set to move to a rehab facility closer to his 31-year-old Khloe’s home.

A source told Us Weekly magazine: “He actually gets a little better every day. He talks a bit more each day and walks with a walker, but still has trouble processing his thoughts. It’s very slow but little by little.”

However, Khloe has insisted that Lamar still has a long way to go but is confident he’ll get there with time and the right care.

She said previously: “His kidneys are recovered and all of his organs are pretty much recovered. It’s more his brain is still affected and physically he has to learn how to walk again and he is learning how to feed himself again.
