Three months after a near life ending medical emergency, Lamar Odom is continuing his long road to recovery at a new location.

The former Lakers player, who had been getting treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center following an apparent drug overdose, has officially moved to a specialized Los Angeles rehabilitation clinic, this according to several reports.

It’s unclear what the 36-year-old’s current medical status is, however, the star, who suffered severe brain damage, was reportedly well enough to have moved from one facility to another.

Back in October, Odom was found unresponsive inside a Nevada brothel after a reported three-day binge, which included taking sex enhancement supplements and cocaine.

Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, has been making medical decisions for the New York native and opened up about the former Clippers player’s journey during the 2016 Television Critics Association Press Tour.

“I’m just there to support and care for him,” Khloe told the crowd. “But he’s doing amazing and I’m so proud of the strength that he has to fight this battle that’s his battle, and I’m so grateful for everybody’s love and concern because I do think it’s coming from a good place.”

Exclusive: The Bullet Scars That Will Forever Haunt Sheryl Lee Ralph’s Son, Etienne Maurice



Sheryl Lee Ralph shared a graphic photo on Instagram earlier this week of her son, Etienne Maurice, laying in a hospital bed bandaged up from bullet wounds. The purpose of the image was to be yet another voice calling to end gun violence.

On Wednesday, students across the country walked out of class to protest against gun violence, something that hit home for Ralph four years ago. “This mother wants #gunreform now! #guncontrol now,” she wrote.

It was during a night out in West Philadelphia that Ralph’s then 22-year-old child was robbed at gunpoint and shot three times; twice in the leg and one which grazed his forehead.

So as Ralph joined Wednesday’s national conversation about gun laws, HipHollywood talked exclusively with Etienne who shared exactly what went down the night a gun could have taken his life for good.

“I was shot four years ago, November 9 … I was black out drunk. The next thing I know I remember I woke up in the hospital, doctor said I had two bullet holes in my leg and a grazed bullet hole above my eyebrow.”

Maurice, who was robbed for his iPhone and his wallet, went on to tell us that this is something that he is reminded of constantly. “Having been shot is something that I carry with me every day. I still have numbness at the bottom of my leg from the nerve damage.”

And while he will always remember how he felt knowing his life almost ended, Etienne had a hard time fathoming how his famous mother felt. “We had the conversation about it last week and she said she peed on herself,” he told us.

For Maurice, he’s proud to see young children use their voices to make change. “There’s so many angles where we can talk about gun violence and how it’s effecting different communities,” he said. “Gun reform needs to take place now.”

Since that night, he hasn’t picked up a drink and has been now sober for four years. As for the suspects, a father-son duo, they are behind bars for attempted man slaughter.
