Tonight, a reportedly "nervous" Lamar Odom made his first public appearance since he was found unconscious last October in a Las Vegas brothel. The event he chose to attend, as you likely pieced together from this earlier article as well as the freakin' headline, was his brother-in-law Kanye West's album premiere. At the event Kanye personally walked him to a seat with the Kardashian/Jenner families where the former NBA champ was greeted by the Madison Square Garden crowd with a chorus of cheers, as well as shouts of his name.

Additionally, TMZ Sports reported that the main reason Odom decided to jet east for the show, from L.A. to NYC, is because West frequently visited him in the hospital where he played him some of his new music (which Odom used to track his improvement, based upon his ability to remember lyrics).
