Kim Kardashian West doesn't think Lamar Odom will "ever be the same again".
The 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star admits she fears for her brother-in-law because he has a lot of "communication therapy" to do in order to recover after he was found unconscious at a brothel following a drink and drug binge.
She said: "He's here and he's alive, but to say it's not a long road and to say he's fully better is not the truth either.
"He has a lot of work to do and a lot of communication therapy and having to learn to walk again and to talk again. You never know if he'll ever be the same again."
And despite her sister Khloe previously filing for divorce from the basketball star - something which she has since revoked - Kim insists Lamar will "always be family" to her and her sisters.
Speaking to On Air With Ryan Seacrest, she said: "Lamar is family and he'll always be family, we'll always do what we can to help take care of him, and protect him, and be there for him.
"It's a really unfortunate, sad situation all the way around the board, and I just encourage people to keep on praying because the road is nowhere near over."
