Lamar Odom Spotted Out in L.A. After Making First Public Appearance at Kanye West's Fashion Show
Lamar Odom was seen grabbing food Sunday night in Los Angeles
As his health continues to improve, Lamar Odom appears to be re-entering public life.
Days after making his first appearance at Kanye West‘s fashion show since his near-fatal overdose in October, the former NBA star was spotted out and about in Los Angeles getting food to-go from Asian restaurant Pickup Stix on Sunday night.
Odom, 36, had an assistant with him and was dressed casually in basketball shorts, sneakers and a green hoodie.
“Lamar was in very, very bad shape. Both physically and cognitively. There is only that much help that someone can receive. In Lamar’s case, it’s very much his own physical strength and all of his hard work in therapy that has paid off,” the source said. “He also has the mind set of a professional athlete. He never once gave up.”
Odom flew from L.A. to New York City on a private plane with his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian on Wednesday night to attend West’s Yeezy Season 3 show on Thursday with the rest of the Kardashian-Jenner family.
A source told PEOPLE that Kardashian, 31, and Odom “made the decision together” and both seemed “excited.”
“For Lamar, it’s very important that he keeps regaining his old life. This will motivate him so he is able to keep focusing and work hard. Think of it as a reward. Flying on private jets across the country was his life before,” the source explained. “Khloé is nothing but protective of Lamar. She would never jeopardize his health. It’s very exciting that Lamar is getting back into his old world. No one deserves it more.”
Late Thursday night, Kardashian took to Twitter to shut down speculation about a reconciliation between her and Odom.
“God forbid exes are cordial right?!?!” she tweeted. “Wtf is wrong with people?!?! People should praise kindness. Not question it.”
The next evening, Odom and Kardashian flew back to L.A. together.
