Lamar Odom

Lamar Odom is reportedly awake and responsive following a coma as the result of a drug overdose at a brothel in Nevada earlier this week. 

Entertainment Tonight reports that a spokesperson for Lamar's aunt, JaNean Mercer, says that the basketball star "was able to open his mouth and speak." Lamar also reportedly responded to his doctor when asked how he was doing with a "thumbs up" and "Good morning."

E! News reports that Lamar opened his eyes, and when he saw Khloe Kardashian, who has not left his bedside, said, "Hey Baby," before going back to sleep, according to one of their sources. The source also mentioned that he is not using a breathing any longer.

Lamar was found unconscious at the brothel and hospitalized on Tuesday, where he was put on a ventilator, and in critical condition.
