Khloé Kardashian has revealed that Lamar Odom is "doing really well" following his shock hospitalisation in October. The former NBA player was discovered in a critical condition following a drug overdose, but has finally been released from hospital after a "miracle" recovery.

Speaking to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday, Khloé discussed her ex-husband's condition, explaining: "He's walking and talking. I'm not laughing because it's funny. I'm laughing because it's literally a miracle. This person was in a coma. I was told he had four hours to live. He wasn't talking."

Khloe described Lamar's recovery as a "miracle"

She added: "He literally could not speak or walk up until three weeks ago. All of a sudden he's walking. Doctors are astonished by how quickly he's advancing. But it's because of his athleticism and he's been a great basketball player his whole life. I'm thinking that has a major thing to do with it, but he's doing great."

Khloé concluded by saying that she hopes the overdose helps Lamar to finally overcome his addiction issues once and for all.

"He's fighting for his life, and I really pray this is a wake up call for him, and he changes his life, and wants to do better," she said. "Everyone loves a good comeback story."

Khloe made the revelations on US talk show Watch What Happens Live

Lamar was taken to hospital in Las Vegas on 13 October after being discovered unconscious in a legal brothel. Khloé has supported her former husband throughout the ordeal, and called off her divorce to the athlete so he could continue to focus on his recovery.

While the decision caused some fans to speculate that she had reunited with her husband of four years, Khloé has since revealed that she is still dating basketball player James Harden and is going out of her way to make their relationship work while he is on the road during the NBA season.

"I'm a really good multi-tasker and I just know how to balance out," Khloé told Entertainment Tonight. "Even if it's just a 48-hour trip. As long as you get that time in then it works."
