Lamar Odom Conscious, Breathing on His Own said ‘Good Morning’

LAS VEGAS — Lamar Odom has opened his eyes and said something, sources told Eyewitness News.


Odom, a former NBA player who grew up in Queens, is in a Las Vegas hospital after being found unconscious Tuesday in a Nevada brothel.

According to ABC7 Odom said “good morning,” gave the doctors a thumb’s up and he is breathing on his own.

Odom, 35, was found at the Love Ranch in Crystal, where he had paid $75,000 for a four-day stay.

The Love Ranch said Odom told at least one of the women when he arrived on Saturday that he had used cocaine earlier in the day. And he bought 10 sexual stimulants, or “herbal Viagra,” during his stay, according to a brothel spokesman.

Publicist Alvina Alston issued a statement Friday on behalf of JaNean Mercer, Odom’s maternal aunt and godmother.

The statement said in part: “No words can express the overwhelming gratitude we feel for the outpouring of support from around the world.”

Alston said Mercer is the sister of Odom’s late mother who helped raise him in New York, where she still lives. Mercer and other family members, including estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, are now in Las Vegas.

The statement says, “His complete healing is paramount and our primary focus.”
