The future continues to look bleak for Lamar Odom – amid fears that he is now in need of a kidney transplant.

Just when you may have thought the former NBA has enough bad shit on his plate, it has also been claimed that he may be at risk of prosecution after blood tests apparently confirmed early reports that he had taken cocaine.

It’s just over two weeks since Khloe Kardashian‘s estranged husband was found slumped unconscious in a Nevada brothel after a four day drugs binge.

Lamar, pictured above during happier times with Khloe,  has shown signs of making a recovery from the damage inflicted on his body, but latest reports suggest he still has a mountain to climb.

According to Us Weekly, the 35-year-old star may require surgery. The magazine said: “A source close to the situation tells Us that the former NBA player, 35, is ‘definitely’ in need of a kidney transplant.

“He can say a few words (reveals the source) … He’s doing a tiny bit better, but he has a very long road back to full recovery – if that.”

Meanwhile, Lamar could face criminal charges, according to Mail Online and others. A law-enforcement source has apparently told TMZ that it’s ‘distinctly possible’ the star could face legal action.

If that’s the case, surely it’s time to cut the poor bastard some slack – we know the law has to be enforced but until he makes a recovery it’s a little early to be talking about hauling his butt into court?
