When it comes to partying hard, reports indicate that Lamar Odom just can’t get enough.
Most recently, the 36-year-old former basketball player was spotted partying inside Sugardaddy’s Strip Club in Queens, New York, according to RadarOnline. The online gossip source reports that Odom hung out inside the strip club until well past 2 a.m.
The report of Lamar Odom’s strip club visit comes just days after Odom was reportedly videotaped smoking outside of an apartment in Providence, Rhode Island — in “an area known for drugs.”
According to an unnamed source for Radar Online, “Odom was clearly smoking marijuana.”
“I looked out my window and couldn’t believe it, Lamar Odom was standing nearby getting high. Anyone within 50 feet of him could smell the pot, he wasn’t try to hide it at all.”
While speaking to Radar Online, the source added, “He kept going in and out of his cousin’s apartment, getting into a black truck, he would leave for a short time and come back, and he did this several times throughout the day.”

Odom’s alleged descent back into the world of drugs has reportedly been steady but unsurprising. Even Odom’s estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, has said she fears for her former lover’s life. During Sunday’s episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Khloe confronted Odom about his alleged drug use, going so far as to ask Odom if he knew what was at stake.
“You know you could die right now, right?”
Khloe asked Lamar those words during the most recent episode of KUWTK, but if recent reports are to be believed, Odom’s situation has deteriorated during the five months since that episode was filmed. In July, for example, Lamar was removed from an airplane after he reportedly displayed drunken behavior before takeoff. Additionally, numerous articles have reported on Khloe Kardashian’s growing suspicious about Odom’s drug use.

Concern about Odom’s substance and alcohol abuse has peaked since the former Los Angeles Laker was found unconscious in a Las Vegas-area brothel last October. At the time, the 6-foot-10-inch former athlete had spent several days in the brothel before he reportedly overdosed on a dangerous mixture of cocaine and sexual performance-enhancing drugs.
When news of his condition broke, estranged wife Khloe Kardashian rushed to his side at the Las Vegas hospital and helped nurse Odom back to health. When he was released from the hospital, Kardashian reportedly went so far as to let Odom live with her before she rented him a home near hers in Calabasas, California.
Eventually, Kardashian kicked Odom out of the home in Calabasas, which she was renting for $25,000 per month, after she discovered a crack pipe on the property, according to TMZ. That report came in July, and the celebrity news website reports that Odom has been “going from house to house, staying with friends” ever since. If the most recent report from RadarOnline is to be believed, it would seem as if Odom is currently staying with his cousin on the east coast.
With the most recent reports of Lamar Odom’s alleged drug use, it seems as if even the most dedicated Khloe Kardashian-Lamar Odom reconciliation supporters are beginning to lose hope. Back in May, Khloe filed for divorce from Odom for a second time.
Originally, she and Odom had filed for divorce in 2013, but the divorce was never finalized. When Odom was recovering in the hospital, Khloe chose to withdraw her divorce petition so that she could continue to make medical decisions for her husband. After Odom was released, there was some talk of the couple reuniting, but as reports continue to indicate that Odom could be using drugs, those hopes of reconciliation appear to be diminishing.
What do you think about the entire situation? Do you think Lamar Odom’s strip club visits are warranted? Do you think the former Los Angeles Laker has a right to blow off some steam and party at the strip club? Why or why not?
