Lamar Odom has allegedly been spotted smoking what could be an illegal substance just hours after estranged wife Khloe Kardashian admitted that she was worried her former husband could “die right now” from his unhealthy lifestyle.
According to a new report by Radar Online, as Kardashian spoke candidly about Lamar’s struggles during the August 21 episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Lamar was spotted smoking miles away from his estranged wife in Rhode Island.
The site published a video of Lamar smoking while outside an apartment thought to be owned by his cousin in Providence this week, which was provided by an eyewitness who alleged that the substance in Odom’s possession appeared to be marijuana.
“I looked out my window and couldn’t believe it, Lamar Odom was standing nearby getting high,” the eyewitness who shot the video told Radar Online, claiming that Odom “wasn’t trying to hide it all.”
“Anyone within 50 feet of him could smell the pot,” the onlooker alleged.
Lamar has not spoken out about Radar Online‘s video and has not confirmed if the substance was marijuana, though this isn’t the first time Odom has been accused of a relapse after suffering a serious medical crisis following a drug overdose last year.
TMZ reported just last month that Khloe had kicked Lamar out of the Calabasas, California, home she rented for him after Kardashian allegedly finding a “crack pipe” in Odom’s possession.
Neither Khloe Kardashian nor Lamar Odom has confirmed the reports, though Us Weekly also reported last month that Lamar was in fact “using again” after Khloe filed for divorce for a second time.
As a source close to the Kardashian family alleged to the site that Lamar had suffered a drug relapse and claimed that Khloe had no choice but to “put her foot down” and be firm with her estranged husband, which is why Kardashian supposedly kicked him out of the Calabasas property.
Khloe got seriously candid about Lamar and his apparent relapse during a candid moment on the most recent episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, where Kardashian admitted she believed there was a good chance Lamar could die if he doesn’t clean up his act.
“I’ve been so worried about Lamar. I just want to keep him around positive people,” Khloe confessed on the family’s reality show according to a transcript of Kardashian’s candid conversation with a friend provided by People.
“I am so conflicted. I want the best for Lamar, but with everything going on lately there’s not a lot of trust there,” Khloe continued, referring to the swirling reports claiming that Odom may have suffered a drug relapse.
Kardashian then admitted that she knows Lamar has been “hanging out with bad guys again” before Khloe confessed that she doesn’t believe that Odom will ever get his act together after the scary medical emergency that the Daily Mail claimed left Lamar only a “50/50 chance of survival” and in hospital for months last year.
“Nothing is going to wake him up, that’s just the way it is,” Khloe said on the popular E! reality show, seemingly discussing Odom’s drug relapse. “This is Lamar,” Kardashian said.
According to E! News, Kardashian also told her sisters in the episode that she believed Lamar could die at any minute, seemingly confirming that Odom, who shot to fame as a basketball star, suffered a relapse in his sobriety.
Telling sisters Kim and Kourtney that she believes Odom had taken “five steps backwards” when it comes to getting healthy and staying away from drugs, Khloe then recalled telling Lamar, “‘You know you could die right now right?'”
