- The season three debut of rapper/designer Kanye West's fashion line, Yeezy, brought out some of the biggest stars in entertainment and sports including former LA Laker Lamar Odom.

The Queens native made his first public appearance Thursday at Madison Square Garden after reportedly overdosing at a Las Vegas brothel last year.

Odom walked in with West before the Yeezy collection show and the album release for West's latest album, "The Life of Pablo."

In the stands waiting for the former NBA star was estranged wife and reality TV star Khloe Kardashian Odom and her famous family: Kris Jenner, Caitlyn Jenner, Kylie Jenner, Kim Kardashian, Kendall Jenner, North West and Kourtney Kardashian. 

 

 

In October 2015, Odom was hospitalized after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel.

Odom, who won two NBA championships with the Lakers in 2009 and 2010, last played in the NBA in 2013, and saw recent reality TV fame through his marriage to Kardashian.

Kardashian Odom filed for divorce in 2013, citing irreconcilable differences, but withdrew the request after Odom was hospitalized. She has been reportedly by his side throughout his recovery from the near fatal overdose.
