Lamar Odom is in trouble once again, but this time, the trouble relates to his spending habits and his crazy behavior. Odom’s career with the NBA is over, but he continues to spend his fortune lavishly. According to Hollywood Life, Lamar Odom’s friends believe that he is at risk of going broke if he continues to spend money the way he currently does.
Though he may be finished with the NBA, Odom spends his fortune as if he is still earning millions. The former LA Clippers star has gone through a lot recently, including his now-ex-wife Khloe Kardashian recently filing for a divorce. Reports have also surfaced that his socialite ex-girlfriend kicked him out of a mansion that she rented for him after family members reportedly found a crack pipe in the mansion.
A confidante of Lamar Odom’s spoke on his recent spending habits and his depression.
“He’s spending bandz on bandz like he has an endless bank account. At the rate he’s going he’s going to be broke.”

The informant went on to say that Lamar Odom is “kicking it” by “surrounding himself with all of his day ones,” and that he feels he is invincible. But on the other hand, Odom reportedly feels depressed because of the breakdown in his relationship with Khloe and that he is no longer in the NBA.
Lamar Odom’s friends are reportedly warning him that he is heading into dangerous territory once again, and everyone is hoping that the former basketball star will pay attention before it’s too late.
“Everyone tells him he’s going down the same road that left him unconscious in Vegas.”
Lamar Odom reportedly had some trouble with alcohol on a flight recently, acting drunk in the airport and eventually threw up on an airplane. According to the New York Daily News, Lamar Odom was removed from his flight out of Los Angeles as he was reportedly drunk in the airport and aboard the aircraft.
Lamar Odom was seen drinking beer and whiskey at the Delta lounge at the airport before he boarded the late night flight back to Manhattan.

Before the plane took off, Odom left his seat and vomited in the kitchen area of the airplane. He was also reported to have thrown up in the bathroom of the airplane with the door open. Odom was escorted back to his seat by flight attendants, only to reappear in the bathroom ten minutes later.
This time, Lamar Odom reportedly placed his hands on the head of a fellow passenger as he had a hard time balancing himself. One of the passengers eventually complained and urged a flight attendant to take further action. The passenger brought up the history of Lamar Odom and saw him as a liability for the flight. Lamar was then taken out of the plane for good, causing the plane to arrive at New York 40 minutes behind schedule.

Lamar Odom has had substance abuse issues in the past as he was rushed to a hospital in Nevada last October after he had been discovered unresponsive after a drug binge at a brothel. In that instance he had emerged from his coma four days later but remained in the hospital for three months, to be released in in January this year. He showed impressive signs of recovery in the weeks of his release and he moved into a rental home in Calabasas, California. The $25,000 per month home was paid for by his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian. However, his progress was short-lived, as friends close to Odom felt worried after he was reported ordering a cognac and three mixed drinks at an Irish pub in late March.
To make matters worse, rumors of Lamar Odom being homeless have also been circulating. However, E! News reports that the rumors can be officially dispelled as Lamar Odom is staying focused and determined on fixing his health and being with his children.
Lamar Odom is reportedly spending time with his children and is focused on participating in an outpatient program that includes counseling and professional support. Fans of the former NBA star can only hope that he stays the course this time and prioritizes his recovery.
