While he was in a coma, Odom claims he suffered 12 strokes and six heart attacks, and when he finally walked out of the Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center in Las Vegas, his doctors told him itwas a miraclehe was still alive.
Lamar at the time was in the middle of a divorce form his now ex-wife Khloe Karadashian but she ran to his side when he was hospitalized and even stopped the divorce proceeding and stood by her husband during his crisis.
Nearly four years later, however, Odom shares a different story. The formerNBA star's memoir, Darkness To Light,hit shelves on Tuesday, and in these last few weeks, he's been dropping excerpts to let the public know what they can expect. According to Odom wrote about his time in the hospital as he was recovering, and how his ex-wife and then mother in law Kris Jenner, were beyond rude to his family members.
“I had cousins and childhood friends waiting for hours who got bumped out ofline by my famous sisters-in-law," he wrote. "Obviously, I had no idea what was going on. This was Khloe’s call, and she had never even met most of my family.” Odom also noted one incident that occurred with Kris when his Aunt JaNean was finally given access to visit him with his children, Lamar Jr. and Destiny.
