Lamar Odom suffered 12 strokes and the results could be permanent, says a new report.

According to TMZ, doctors have performed a series of brain scans on the former NBA star and discovered evidence of the strokes.

Although the strokes reportedly didn't affect Lamar's vital organs, the website is told they did have an impact on his motor skills - basically his ability to walk and talk.

It's unclear at this point whether the damage will be permanent.

Lamar is currently in an LA hospital recuperating from his scary medical emergency. He was found unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel and was in a coma for three days.

With his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian no doubt by his side throughout, Lamar is now set to undergo months of physical therapy.

Reports say the most immediate concern is Lamar's kidneys, which have failed. He'll continue on dialysis and may need a transplant.

In fact, some of Lamar's devoted fans have even offered their kidneys for transplant.

However, Lamar is said to be making a 'miraculous recovery' from his collapse, which could have been fatal.

On Friday, it was reported that Lamar has undergone two emergency surgeries as he continues to suffer the effects of his alleged drug overdose.

Khloe has been by Lamar's side since he was found in a critical condition.

They have since called off their divorce.

She broke her silence earlier this week, saying: "The past week has been so difficult.

"I am so thankful to family, friends and fans, who have sent nothing but prayers and well wishes to Lamar."
