Lamar Odom Will Not Face Drug Charges In Regards To October Brothel Incident

Back in October, former basketball star Lamar Odom was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. The health scare left Odom hospitalized, and he's still on the road to recovery today. According to TMZ, blood test results from October showed that the athlete had cocaine in his system. Ever since, fans have wondered: Will Odom face drug charges? After months of uncertainty, the answer is no. A spokesperson for the Nye County District Attorney told E! News,

That's a long-winded way of saying that there isn't sufficient evidence to criminally charge Odom for drug possession or use. Now that that's settled, it's certainly one less thing for the 36-year-old to worry about as he works on recovering. According to various reports, he has made strides in getting better, including beginning to walk on his own and raise his arm above his head. Plus, last week Odom reportedly left the hospital and moved to a private rehab facility, which is another major step forward.

As he focuses on an expectedly long recovery, his ex Khloé Kardashian continues being a solid source of support along the way. In November, the reality star told Ellen DeGeneres that Odom does not know how he wound up in the hospital, and she believes that's for the best. Kardashian said,

Going forward, hopefully there continues to only be good news about Odom's recovery and his condition improves everyday.
