Signs Lamar Odom Is In Serious Trouble

Friends and family of Lamar Odom are allegedly worried the troubled basketball player-turned-reality TV star is spiraling out of control. What's causing these concerns, and is Odom actually in danger? Let's start at the beginning.

He overdosed in Nevada

On October 13, 2015, Odom was found unconscious from an apparent overdose inside his private room at the Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nev. He was rushed to a nearby hospital, where he remained in a coma and on life support for about three days. At the time, reports claimed cocaine and opiates were found in his system. TMZ reported he suffered multiple strokes and organ damage from the overdose. Odom was not released from the hospital until January 2016. After his health scare, sources for People said he promised then-wife, Khloe Kardashian, "not to drink or abuse drugs" again.

He was caught drinking

Odom's alleged promise proved to be short-lived. In the early hours of Easter Sunday morning, TMZ obtained photos of the 36-year-old "boozing at an Irish bar" in Sherman Oaks, Calif. The bar later confirmed to TMZ that Odom purchased three Remy Martin drinks after entering the pub shortly before midnight and stayed until about 1 a.m.

The craziest part: the next morning, he was photographed attending church with Kardashian and her family. "I hate this feeling," Kardashian tweeted Easter morning. "Helpless."

A source for E! News later claimed Odom "has no issues with drinking." The source said, "He was not drunk or out of control after his bar visit. He is well aware of what he is doing and he is not going to f*** it up. Khloe supports him and is still taking care of him. She is really pleased with how well he is recovering."

All of that seemed well and good, until...

He got caught drinking again

Less than two months after he was caught drinking at the pub, Odom was spotted downing drinks again at the Beverly Center shopping mall in Southern California in May 2016. Sources for TMZ claimed Odom went to a nearby bar while his friend shopped for shoes. At the bar, Odom allegedly ordered Cognac, "schmoozed it up with a few women," and left $60.

"People disappoint," Kardashian later tweeted, which many presumed to be about Odom. According to sources for People, Kardashian and her entire family had become worried about Odom's recent behavior. "Khloé and her family have all expressed concerns," a source said. "The family doesn't think Lamar should be drinking, and they are nervous about his behavior...The concerns are that his addictive personality once again is taking over and he won't be able to control the drinking." The source added, "There have been talks about rehab for Lamar. He just doesn't seem to agree with the concerns."

Khloe filed for divorce (again)

In late May 2016, Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom for a second time, reported TMZ. She initially filed for divorce in 2013 amid reports that his drug and alcohol problems were escalating. She called off the divorce just as it was about to be finalized to allow Odom to recover peacefully from his overdose, according to TMZ. Odom's relapse in March 2016 proved to be "the final straw," however, prompting Kardashian to go back to court, sources told TMZ. As she did the first time, Kardashian cited "irreconcilable differences" as the reason for the split. Divorce proceedings at the time were said to be "amicable," according to the report.

Friends allegedly found drug paraphernalia in his home

As Nicki Swift reported in June 2016, friends and family confronted Odom that month out of fear that he was using drugs again. The alleged confrontation, which was done with the hopes of getting Odom to enter rehab, went down at Odom's home in Calabasas, Calif. where his friends reportedly discovered "drug paraphernalia scattered all over the place," including "crack pipes, baggies and roaches," according to TMZ. Odom allegedly "scoffed" at the confrontation and felt he didn't actually need help.

Khloe kicked him out of his house

TMZ reported in July 2016 that Kardashian had kicked Odom out of the $25,000 per-month home she rented for him following his overdose last October. Kardashian reportedly leased the property, located near her own home, so she could be near him during his recovery. However, she decided to give him the boot after word got out that his family had found crack pipes in his home. TMZ reported that Odom was now "going from house to house" and staying with various friends in the Valley.

He was kicked off a plane

As covered by Nicki Swift, Odom was escorted off a Delta airlines flight after allegedly getting drunk in the airport lounge and vomiting on the plane in July 2016. According to TMZ, Odom allegedly boarded the plane "wasted" and proceeded to throw up in the galley and in the bathroom just as the plane was about to pull away from the gate. He was reportedly escorted off the plane, only to return again about 10 minutes later. After returning to his seat, sources for TMZ claim Odom ran back to the bathroom and used "the heads of people in their seats to steady his balance." Odom was then permanently removed from the plane.

Two days later, sources for TMZ spotted Odom at a strip club in New York City.
