Lamar Odom has received his Christmas wish early this year, walking unaided for the first time since his drug overdose back in October.

The 36-year-old’s future has been uncertain since he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel, with estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian revealing it could take him years to recover.

‘They think, like, within a year and a half to two years that, mentally, he might be fully recovered. But they don’t know,’ she says.

After dramatic improvements this week, Lamar’s future is looking more hopeful, and Khloé insists that with time and the right care, he will be able to make a full recovery.
