Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have appeared to be on the verge of a reconciliation in recent months, but now that Lamar Odom has reportedly returned to his wild ways, that may not be possible.
While Lamar Odom seemed to be on a good path earlier this year, months after his drug overdose, there have since been multiple reports claiming the former NBA star has returned to the party scene in Los Angeles.
On April 27, Perez Hilton claimed Lamar Odom had been spotted at the Local Peasant bar in Woodland Hills, California, on Tuesday night. Although the report didn’t reveal whether Lamar Odom was drinking during his night out, this was not the first time he’s been caught in a bar. In fact, just one month ago, a photo surfaced of Lamar Odom at the Johnny O’Brien pub in Sherman Oaks.
According to a TMZ report at the time, Lamar Odom visited the establishment with two male friends, and while there, sources claimed the athlete ordered 3 Remy Martin drinks, which he paid for by himself. The report also claimed Lamar Odom and his friends arrived just before midnight and stayed until about 1 a.m.

“Khloe is very worried about [Lamar Odom] and his behavior,” a source told People Magazine days after photos of Lamar Odom at the Johnny O’Brien pub surfaced. “But Lamar refuses to listen to her. He actually said to her, ‘Nothing will happen to me. Look how I survived the last time.’ ”
News of Lamar Odom’s night time activities came just months after he nearly died after suffering a drug overdose at a brothel in Nevada. In October, 2015, Lamar Odom was discovered unconscious after partying for days with the women of the venue, and after being transferred to a nearby hospital, he remained in a coma for 3 days.
Although Lamar Odom did survive his overdose, his recovery has been a long one. Not only was he kept in Las Vegas for days after his overdose, he was also kept in a Los Angeles hospital for a whopping 3 months as his doctors attempted to get him back to his pre-overdose self.

In other Lamar Odom news, a source claims his upcoming role on Keeping Up With the Kardashians Season 12 may not have been the best thing for him.
“[Lamar Odom] has been shooting and he is not well,” an insider revealed to Radar Online on April 25. “He’s very slow mentally. The crew can see it’s totally obvious he has some ongoing issues with his recovery because he acts different than before. What’s even worse, Odom is being manipulated into doing things on the show by everyone because he just says ‘Yes.’ ”
“Basically they are asking him to do things on the show that create a crazy storyline,” the insider continued. “At this point, if they asked him to go skydiving, he’d just agree because he’s not in a right state of mind.”
Kris Jenner is “behind it all,” the source added. “She wants the buzz for the show.”
Meanwhile, the majority of the show’s crew, and Lamar Odom’s wife, Khloe Kardashian, 31, are uncomfortable with moving forward.
“Khloe feels uncomfortable about it as do most of the crew,” said the insider, but it “is what it is since Kris is the boss.”
While Kardashian has not yet refiled her divorce documents, she is expected to do so in the coming months.
