Lamar Odom escapes being charged with drugs possession

In a follow – up story with Entertainment SA about the Basketball star Lamar Odom- who was found lights out at a Nevada brothel – reportedly tested positive for overdose on cocaine when admitted to hospital in Las Vegas.

Several entertainment publications had ominous news about him facing criminal charges for his Nevada Brothel incident, but E-SA has learned that this is now a remote possibility.

This comes after Nye County District Attorney Angela Bello said in a statement: ‘’The Nye county Sheriff’s Office has asked the Nye County District Attorney’s Office to review a request for prosecution against Lamar Odom for use of, or under the influence of, a Controlled Substance.

‘’ The D.A.’s office will take the time needed to appropriately review that request, along with all evidence that might support that request, in order to reach a just conclusion regarding whether to advance charges.

In the meantime, the 36-year old legendary sportsman is said to be doing much better but his devastated wife Khloe Kardashian, 31, seems a bit precautious about his recovery. She said: ‘’his kidneys are recovered and all of his organs are pretty much recovered. It’s more his brain is still affected and physically he has to learn how to walk again and he is learning how to feed himself again.

‘’All those normal things we take for granted every day and it’s a really long road and it’s going to take a long time. People hear he’s off machines and they’re like, ‘Oh great, he’s going to be running out of there.’ That’s not the case but I’m so blessed on the progress of where he is and I know he’ll get there, it’s just going to take {time}.’’
