In his return to Twitter Sunday after some time off, Kanye West gave a shoutout to Lamar Odom:
KANYE WEST @kanyewest
my favorite moment of walking into MSG to play Saint Pablo, I used to go to the hospital and play Lamar the album when he was learning to walk and talk again Then we walked into the arena together https://t.co/ysC5z5wDUA
Odom had been hospitalized due to an overdose and made his first public appearance since at a Kanye West show in Madison Square Garden in 2016.
The 38-year-old spent 14 years in the NBA and was also connected with West through the Kardashian family. Odom was married to Khloe Kardashian, while West is married to Kim Kardashian.
Meanwhile, the Saint Pablo tour two years ago featured plenty of ups and downs and was eventually canceled with 21 dates remaining. It seems Odom’s appearance in New York was at least a highlight of the tour.
