Lamar Odom to be moved to different rehab centre

Lamar Odom is reportedly being moved to a rehab facility closer to his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian's home.

The 35-year-old basketball player is said to be making good progress following his near-fatal collapse in Nye County, Nevada two months ago and is now deemed fit enough to be transferred from Cedars-Sinai medical centre to a facility closer to his former flame's house in Calabasas, California.

A source added to UsWeekly magazine: "He actually gets a little better every day. He talks a bit more each day and walks with a walker, but still has trouble processing his thoughts. It's very slow but little by little."

However, Khloé, 31, who put her divorce on hold last month, recently revealed Lamar still has a long way to go but is confident he'll get there with time and the right care.

She said previously: "His kidneys are recovered and all of his organs are pretty much recovered. It's more his brain is still affected and physically he has to learn how to walk again and he is learning how to feed himself again.

"All those normal things we take for granted every day and it's a really long road and it's going to take a long time."

The 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' star - who filed for divorce from her ex-beau last year after four years of marriage - has been dashing back and forth to the hospital to see and care for Lamar, who doctors initially believed only had four hours to live, since he was discovered unconscious at a brothel following a drugs and alcohol binge in October.
