Lamar Odom Faces Rumors Of Drug Use As Khloe Kardashian Moves On
Lamar Odom is reportedly spiraling out of control as he nears the one-year anniversary of his drug overdose in Nevada. According to recent reports, Lamar Odom has been caught on camera using drugs and shows no signs of halting his wild partying as he continues to frequent strip clubs around New York City.
Last month, during a visit to Rhode Island to see his cousin, Lamar Odom was reportedly photographed smoking weed. In photos obtained by Radar Online, the former professional basketball player was seen walking around a black SUV with a suspicious cigarette in his hand.

“I looked out my window and couldn’t believe it, Lamar Odom was standing nearby getting high,” an onlooker revealed to the outlet. “Anyone within 50 feet of him could smell the pot, he wasn’t try to hide it at all.”
A short time later, a second Radar Online report claimed Lamar Odom appeared to be “off the wagon” as he indulged in a late-night outing to Sugardaddy’s strip club in Queens, New York. The outlet also noted an August flight in which Lamar Odom was reportedly intoxicated and vomiting all over himself on the way to New York City from Los Angeles.
For the earlier part of this year, Lamar Odom was living in Los Angeles close to his soon-to-be-ex-wife, Khloe Kardashian. However, after she discovered he was drinking again, she removed her financial support and he opted to return to New York City, where his children, Destiny and Lamar Jr., reside with their mother, Liza Morales.

“I was holding out to help [Lamar Odom] but Lamar’s not helping himself so I have to do what’s best for me and I have to move on and just be done,” Kardashian said during an episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians last month, according to a report by E! News. “There’s no reason to hold on to this, it will always be love and I will always like love Lamar and be his friend but it’s time for me to start the next chapter of my life.”
Khloe Kardashian filed for divorce in 2013 but withdrew her request to end her marriage years later after Lamar Odom suffered an overdose. At the time, Kardashian felt it was in Odom’s best interest to remain married to her so that she could call the shots in his ongoing care and cover him under her insurance.
Although Kardashian and her husband appeared to be ready to reconcile in the early months of this year, they ultimately parted ways and in May, Kardashian refiled documents to divorce Lamar Odom.
As her divorce proceedings continue, Khloe Kardashian has refocused her life and on the upcoming episode of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, she will be seen chatting with her younger brother, Rob, about his relationship with Blac Chyna. As Perez Hilton revealed on September 1, Kardashian speaks to her brother about the ups and downs of relationships and while she and Lamar Odom didn’t work out, she appears to have a positive outlook on love.
While Lamar Odom was seen on a number of episodes during the early part of the 12th season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, he hasn’t been spotted on the show since his falling out and although he may remain a hot topic for discussion, fans shouldn’t expect to see much more of him on the series.
