Lamar Odom Suffers 'Memory Loss,' Sometimes Forgets His Own Name

Update Date: Dec 16, 2015 09:51 AM EST

Currently, the former NBA star Lamar Odom is on everyone's mind and memory. However, he is forgotten by the person who is vital to him. Himself.

He is struggling with memory loss as he was found unresponsive at a Las Vegas brothel when he was in a "suspected drug overdose" in October, 2015.

Although Khloè Kardashian said last month in a "Today" show interview that he might be able to completely heal fully within a year-and-a-half, the 36-year-old has still not healed fully, according to HNGN.

"He's not doing great," said a source, according to Entertainment Tonight. "His speech is still slurred and he can barely walk on his own yet. He forgets a lot of people's names - sometimes even his own. He definitely has some memory loss."

Odom is luckily supported fully by the Kardashian family. "They all pop in to see him [at Ceders-Sinai Medical Center], including Khloè," the source said.

Khloè reported in "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" last month that he is "learning how to walk again and feed himself again and put sentences together." She added that he "is off of all machines that help his organs" but still has "a long, long road ahead."

Recently, it was revealed that he would be moving into a rehab centre nearby.
