Lamar Odom has opened his eyes and has been able to communicate.According to Alvina Alston, a spokesperson for Odom’s aunt, JaNean Mercer, the 35-year-old athlete was able to open his mouth and speak on Friday.

When his doctor asked how he was doing, Lamar gave a thumbs up and responded, “Good morning.” Odom has been in the hospital for three days, after being found unconscious on Tuesday at the Love Ranch, a legal brothel in Crystal, Nevada, where he allegedly spent $75,000 during a four-day stay and allegedly used cocaine.

His estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, has remained by his side since Tuesday night, with many of her family members — including her mom, Kris Jenner, and sisters, Kim Kardashian, Kourtney Kardashian and Kylie Jenner — joining her at the hospital, though they have since left Vegas.
