In October 2015, Odom suffered from a nearly fatal overdose after he was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel. He was airlifted to an emergency room in California, where he remained in a coma for four days. He struggled with sobriety in the following weeks and recently announced that he had entered into a 30-day rehab program. While in rehab, his drawn-out divorce from Khloe Kardashian was finalized.

“[Odom]’s being very adult and mature and just wants to be a great father and brother, a better friend,” a source told PEOPLE. “The goal is for him to be inside during Christmas and New Years. Crazy things happen during those times. There’s been amazing reports from the doctors thus far. He’s doing extraordinary well, he’s in great spirits.”
