Khloe Kardashian is feeling distraught over the report that her ex-husband Lamar Odom is struggling with alcohol again.
There have already been numerous reports suggesting that Odom may have fallen off the wagon again, and TMZ‘s report that the former NBA player had been recently removed from a plane drunk and vomiting just confirmed it. Odom was reportedly taken off a Delta flight bound for New York city on Monday night.
According to two passengers, Lamar threw up in the galley just when the plane was about to pull back. He then walked in the bathroom and threw up again while the door was still open. The passengers added that there was vomit all over Odom’s clothes when he came out of the bathroom.
The passengers told TMZ that the flight attendants “gently” escorted Lamar off the plane before putting his belongings in a plastic bag and removing them from the plane.
Before long, Lamar – with vomit on his sweatpants – reappeared and returned to his seat. After a few minutes, Odom got up again and returned to the bathroom, leaning over some passengers’ heads to steady himself as he did so.
Kardashian, while very concerned about the state of Lamar’s help, is taking a “hands off” approach this time. According to ET, Khloe and Odom haven’t been communicating with each other recently.
“Khloe is very concerned but doesn’t know what else she can do at this point,” the source says. “She’s tried everything she can to help him. The man was on his deathbed and she helped him get a second chance at life. If that didn’t wake him up, what will?”
Some netizens took to Twitter to communicate to Khloe their support.
“Can’t save every soul,” one Twitter user wrote to Khloe, who responded with, “but we like to try.”
“You gave him your hand, he didn’t take it. Stay strong, you are our role model,” another Twitter user wrote. “Thank you sweetheart. I love you,” Kardashian wrote back.
Not everyone threw their support for Khloe in her time of emotional struggle over her ex’s return to alcoholism, as one particular user criticized her for her reported hookup with singer Trey Songz earlier this month.
“Instead of running the streets with Mr.!steal your girl you need to be helping your HUSBAND,” she wrote. Khloe didn’t take this lying down as she wrote back with, “Stay in your f*****g lane little girl. You know nothing about anything. You’re a sheep herded by society.”
ET contacted Delta Air Lines, but they refused to divulge any information about the incident, citing customer privacy.
Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce from Lamar a second time on May 26, months after she put a stop to the divorce proceedings in response to her ex-husband’s hospitalization back in October. Odom responded on Friday with a filing of his own, citing irreconcilable differences. In his filing document, Lamar made it clear that he is not requesting spousal support, and that he requests to terminate Kardashian’s right to ask for alimony.
It was only last October when Lamar Odom was found unconscious at a Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada due to drug overdose. Khloe flew to his bedside so he can support him throughout his recovery.
In March, ET reported that Khloe was shocked when she found out that Lamar was spotted at a Sherman Oaks bar ordering alcohol.
“He almost died — if that’s not enough to keep him sober, then what is?” the source told ET at the time. “If Lamar makes this a habit, Khloe will walk away for good this time. Khloe is shocked that he was caught drinking again.”
It became clear that Odom has started his downward spiral into alcohol dependency again when he was photographed sipping liquor at the Beverly Center mall in Los Angeles on Mother’s Day.
“Hummmmmm… People disappoint,” Kardashian posted on Twitter soon after the pictures went their rounds on the internet.
