Lamar Odom is making own decisions

30 October 2015, 10:08

Los Angeles - Lamar Odom is making his own decisions in hospital.

The basketball star is recovering in hospital after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel following a four-day drink and drug binge but is reportedly making such good progress, he is able to communicate with his doctors and fully participate in decisions about his treatment, according to TMZ.

The news means it is likely the 35-year-old former NBA star is the one who prevented his father Joe Odom from visiting him at Los Angeles' Cedar-Senai Medical Center, not his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian as his dad had claimed.

Joe told TMZ: "I'm mad, I'm upset because this is the second time I came to see my son and they won't let me see my son.

"It's a lot of sabotage going on. Like why can't I see my son? I brought him in the world."

Asked why he was unable to visit his son, Joe blamed Khloe and said: "They say I'm not on the visiting list".

An insider recently revealed Lamar is "getting stronger every day".

The source said: "Lamar is getting better every day. He is more coherent and can talk more. [He is] walking with help now. He is getting stronger every day.

"And has a great team of therapists and specialists working with him. He's 6' 11" and weighs a lot, so getting him to walk a little has been really hard."
