Lamar Odom breathing on his own

Lamar Odom is breathing on his own.

The 35-year-old former basketball star regained consciousness on Friday (16.10.15) after being found unconscious in a Nevada brothel earlier this week and TMZ reports that he is now "breathing completely on his own".

He is still using an oxygen mask but a source told the website: "This is the best 24 hours he has had so far."

It has also been reported that Lamar has been able to respond to doctors physically and verbally.

A 911 call made from the brothel confirmed Lamar took cocaine last Saturday (10.10.15) and owner Dennis Hof revealed he was taking herbal Viagra and drinking cognac.

The combination of herbal Viagra and cocaine can be deadly.

A source told E! News: "Drugs were found in his system. [He] had been partying since Friday. He was doing crack cocaine all weekend. They're now having to fix all the damage it has done.

"Virtually every drug imaginable was found in his system."

His estranged wife Khloe Kardashian has been by his side since he was admitted to hospital earlier this week.
