Lamar Odom was determined to show his "love and support" for Kanye West.
The 36-year-old basketball player made his first public appearance since his near-fatal collapse last October at the 'All Day' rapper's Yeezy show and 'Life of Pablo' listening party at New York's Madison Square Garden this afternoon (11.02.16), and insiders say the sportsman had insisted on attending because of how much Kanye has helped with his recovery.
According to TMZ, the 38-year-old rapper - who is married to Kim Kardashian West, the sister of Lamar's estranged wife Khloe Kardashian - was a frequent visitor to the former NBA star's hospital bedside, where he would play rough cuts of his new music.
And Lamar began remembering some of the specific lyrics, in one of the first signs his condition was improving.
Kanye personally ushered Lamar to his seat at the show, where he sat with his estranged wife and the rest of the Kardashian/Jenner family.
The 'Kocktails with Khloe' star and her spouse had flown from Los Angeles to New York by private jet.
A source told People magazine: "Khloé and Lamar made the decision together to fly to NYC. It's a fun trip for Lamar. They both seemed excited. Khloé will make sure that he is taken care of
"For Lamar, it's very important that he keeps regaining his old life. This will motivate him so he is able to keep focusing and work hard. Think of it as a reward.
"Flying on private jets across the country was his life before.
"Khloé is nothing but protective of Lamar. She would never jeopardise his health. It's very exciting that Lamar is getting back into his old world. No one deserves it more."
