The news that Lakers star andKhloe Kardashians exLamar Odom was hospitalizedafter collapsingat a brothel outside of Las Vegas was met with an outpouring of support from his teammates, friends, and other celebrities on social media, who took the opportunity to share messages of hope that Lamar is able to quickly recover.
One of the immediate examples of well-wishes came from former teammate Dwyane Wade, who took multiple tweets to explain how close he still feels to Lamar, promoting others to have empathy for the athlete. Wades wife, Gabrielle Union, didnt add her own terms, but retweeted a few of Wades supportive messages.
A number of otherathletes joined in as well, including fellow Kardashian ex Kris Humphries and LeBron James.
According toFOX Sports ,teammate Kobe Bryant and manager Mitch Kupchakleft the Lakers Las Vegas game early to be by Odoms side, and assistant coach-and-four Mark Madsen confirmed that the rest of the team maintained him in their guess as well.
And a whole collecting of celebrities with no obvious connection to Lamar but plenty of compassion also sent out supportive messages, like performer Miles Teller and Tv host Wendy Williams.
And even though Lamar is not mentioned by name in this short message from Kendall Jenner, its clearly in reference to her former brother-in-law.
The rest of her family hasnt spoken up via social media, thoughPeoplereports that at least ex-wife Khloe Kardashian is by Lamars side in the hospital.
