Lamar Odom walked into Kanye West’s fashion show at Madison Square Garden in New York City Thursday night, seemingly in great shape. The former NBA forward has come a long way since being found unconscious at a Las Vegas brothel in October because of an overdose and reportedly suffering several strokes and kidney failure.

According to reports from family and friends, Odom had to relearn how to walk, talk and regain his memory.

People in attendance shared photos of him on social media, since this appearance was Odom’s first official public outing since the October incident. 

He sat with the Kardashian clan—specifically, right next to his estranged wife, Khloe. 

It’s nice to see Odom back on his feet and enjoying life. Cheers to his heath and rehabilitation.
