Khloe Kardashian is worried that her estranged husband, Lamar Odom, will face a drug-related relapse, having recently reunited with some of his old friends.
The NBA player, who has made an astonishing recovery ever since he suffered from an overdose six months ago, has even surprised his doctors with the improvements. His health seems to be in such great condition, he’s even doing his own grocery shopping again.

While Khloe Kardashian is extremely happy about the news that Odom is making strong progress, she is said to have learned about Lamar’s recent visit to see some of his friends again.
The reality star fears that hanging around with the wrong people will eventually lead the former Clippers star to face another downfall, subsequently dragging him back into his old habits, which is the last thing Khloe would want.
“Lamar’s been seeing some of his day ones and it’s freaking Khloe out,” a source explained to Hollywood Life. “Some of his old home boys have been to the house to check on him. You know, bring him food, share some old stories and shower him with love now that he’s out of the hospital.”

According to insiders, Khloe Kardashian has dedicated too much of her time to have her husband fall off the wagon again — she wants to make sure that the people Lamar is surrounding himself with are people who truly care for him. Because if that was the case, Khloe wonders why his friends allowed Lamar to get into such a bad space to begin with.
One source added, “It’s worrying Khloe because some of the dudes have shady pasts and she doesn’t want Lamar to slip back into his old ways.” Khloe Kardashian is certain that Lamar has definitely got a few people in his circle that are not his true friends — she considers them to be vultures, who only hope to get something out of Odom.
The TV personality doesn’t need any evidence to know that her husband isn’t surrounding himself with the right kind of people, having seen how his friendship with Jamie Sangouthai turned out. Jamie tragically died of an overdose last year, just weeks before Lamar’s other close pal, Bobby Heyward, passed away from the exact same cause.
Khloe is well aware that Lamar would appreciate some private time to feel like his old self again, but if that means he’s wanting to surround himself with the same friends who allowed him to overdose in the first place, she’ll do her best in preventing that from happening.

Kardashian has already called off her divorce from the ageing athlete, showing clear signs that she may want to give her marriage another shot, but for obvious reasons, those plans are going to be scratched if Khloe was to find out Lamar Odom was hanging out with people she considers a bad influence on his life.
Recent reports have suggested that if the 36-year-old can get his act together, continue making a substantial progress, and prove that he’s still capable of playing basketball, Lamar could quite possibly make the biggest comeback the NBA has ever seen. But that’ll only happen if he stays focused and listens to Khloe Kardashian.
