Khloe Kardashian reportedly canceled a taping of Kocktails With Khloe last Thursday due to the stress from Lamar Odom’s recent drinking.
According to a report on April 2, Khloe Kardashian has been fighting with Odom as she attempts to convince him to go to treatment, even an outpatient program, and apparently, she’s so concerned about his health that she’s become an emotional wreck.
“[Khloe Kardashian] told production she was too sick to shoot Thursday, but it’s not because of the flu. Sources close to production tell us she’s stressed out worrying about Lamar Odom’s drinking,” TMZ revealed to readers.

Khloe Kardashian’s husband, Odom, suffered a tragic relapse in October of last year, which nearly took his life. However, despite the terrifying ordeal, he has reportedly returned to drinking, and Khloe Kardashian fears that his addiction could ultimately take his life. As TMZ reported on April 4, Khloe Kardashian wants to make their divorce final, but due to Odom’s ongoing struggles, she feels that if she pulls the plug on their relationship, it could push Odom over the edge.
Khloe Kardashian has actually been separated from Odom since mid-2013, when rumors claimed he was using drugs and cheating on her with multiple women, but due to the couple dragging their feet on the paperwork, their divorce was never finalized.

“[Khloe Kardashian] is very worried, but Lamar refuses to listen to her,” an insider told Us Weekly at the end of last month. “He actually said, ‘Nothing will happen to me. Look at how I survived this last one.'”
For days after his October 2015 overdose, Odom was in a coma, and after awaking, he spent an additional three months hospitalized before leaving the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles in January of this year. Since then, he had been receiving outpatient care, and many believed he was completely sober of all drugs and alcohol, but now, there are conflicting reports.
On Saturday, March 26, Odom was seen at Johnny O’Brien’s pub in Sherman Oaks, California, and according to an eyewitness, he ordered drinks. However, a second source told Us Weekly that Odom had actually ordered the drinks for others, and didn’t consume any booze himself.
“He went out with [Khloe Kardashian’s] security to meet some friends and get out of the house. He bought them the drinks, but didn’t drink himself,” the insider claims. “Khloe’s security guard was with him, which is just like having Khloe with you. He just wanted to get out into the real world for a second and feel normal.”
If Odom is, in fact, drinking alcohol it will reportedly shut down any possible chance of a reunion with Khloe Kardashian.
“Lamar has [always] thought that he would be able to get [Khloe Kardashian] back,” a source told Hollywood Life on April 4. “And after she got mad at him over his drinking, he is now realizing that he is probably losing any chance to get her back and he is currently OK with it.”
Khloe Kardashian and Odom remain in touch, despite his alleged drinking, and while a reunion may not be in the works, their relationship is likely far from over due to her dedication to getting him healthy.
