Nearly three years after his near-fatal overdose, Lamar Odom is opening up about the terrifying moment he woke up in a hospital room after four days in a coma only to find himself face-to-face with estranged wife Khloé Kardashian.
“That was big,” Odom says of waking up to Kardashian by his side during an interview with Kevin Hart for his viral sports-themed interview series, Cold as Balls.
Odom was rushed to the hospital on Oct. 13, 2015, after his years-long battle with drug addiction came to a head and he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. Looking back, the former Los Angeles Lakers star realizes just how lucky he is to be alive.
“All my doctors that see me say I’m a walking miracle. I had 12 strokes and six heart attacks when I was in a coma,” he says. “Every day, I’m alive. It’s much better than the alternative”
