A week after former Basketball star Lamar Odom was released from a Las Vegas hospital and transferred to a LA area hospital, doctors say the Lamar Odom recovery will be a long and complicated process. The athlete is now out of a coma caused from damage to his brain and body after being found unconscious in a legal Nevada brothel after binging on sex and drugs, including herbal Viagra and cocaine. He was in a coma for four days after being admitted on October 12.

Lamar could even face charges due to the cocaine in his system since the drug is illegal, says the Nye County Sheriff's Department.

She has been extremely supportive and has told reporters that she is willing to help the Lamar Odom recovery in any way possible, since she has all the needed resources to do so.
