Iggy Azalea, 25, just came back from Spain to the United States. The Australian rapper was not with her NBA star fiancé, Nick Young, 30, and she just learned about the recovery of former NBA star Lamar Odom, 35.

Demi Lovato’s “Kingdom Come” collaborator was back in Los Angeles from Madrid, Spain, where she headlined the 2015 Coca Cola Music Experience. She was spotted makeup-free and wearing dark shades and black and white bomber jacket at LAX airport on Saturday, Oct. 17.

“Oh, that’s great news,” Azalea said upon learning that Odom’s condition was improving, according to X17. While Azalea and Odom do not personally know each other, the former’s fiancé, who currently plays for Los Angeles Lakers, and the latter have mutual friends.

Odom played for the Los Angeles Lakers in 2004 to 2011. Young started his NBA career in 2007, but he was never teammates with Odom as the latter only joined the Los Angeles Lakers in 2013 after leaving the Philadelphia 76ers.

Both Odom and Young also played for the Los Angeles Clippers in different periods. The former started his NBA career with the team in 1999 and moved to Miami Heat, while the latter played for the team in 2012.

Recently, Odom was said to have regained consciousness and is already breathing on his own. Khloe Kardashian accompanied her estranged husband as he was transported by a medical helicopter to a Los Angeles hospital from Las Vegas on Oct. 19, Monday, sources told ESPN.

“Lamar has always been blessed with a tenacious, fighting spirit, overcoming insurmountable obstacles to achieve the impossible,” Odom's maternal aunt and godmother JaNean Mercer said in a statement obtained by the publication. She added that the former NBA star is “defying the odds in his toughest battle to date.”

In 2009, Odom and Kardashian got married after dating for a month. Kardashian filed for divorce in 2014, and the ex-couple's divorce is reportedly not yet finalised.
