The reality TV star is also rumored to be dating Tristan Thompson. The rumored couple have been spotted at nightclubs and have were photographed on holiday together.
Since Lamar Odom’s near death incident over a year ago, numerous reports suggest that the 36-year old is struggling with sobriety.
About two months ago a TMZ report stated that Lamar was drunk and puking on board a Delta airline plane.
“Lamar went to 4B and sat down, but as the plane was about to pull back he bolted for the front, threw up in the galley and then walked in the bathroom and with the door open threw up again. When he came out of the bathroom, we’re told he had vomit on his clothes.”

Lamar was later reported to have been seen at a strip club and spotted drinking at various locations.
Just last month, Lamar Odom was reportedly back at the strip club surrounded by drinks.
Khloe Kardashian stated that she wants to continue to help him during his recovery despite their divorce. She previously stated that she delayed the divorce proceedings so that she can legally help make decision regarding his health.
The 32-year-old also revealed that she will continue this arrangement after they dissolve their marriage, which suggest that the official split is amicably.
Lamar Odom has been battling addiction since his miraculous recovery from a drug overdose. A personal trainer for the NBA star admitted that he had a momentary lapse and was working out three hours a day before the brothel incident, according to the Daily Mail.

Therefore, when Khloe expressed her concerns about Lamar getting back into basketball during a Keeping Up with The Kardashians episode, it is a pattern she has seen many times before.
In the episode Khloe Kardashian stated the following.
“Basketball is obviously Lamar’s passion and love, and anything that’s positive and uplifting I’m all for, but Lamar hasn’t followed through recently with so many things. I need to see some consistency and a little effort on Lamar’s part. Going to a basketball camp is a big step, and I don’t want to set him up for failure.”
Khloe has been linked to Trey Songz, James Harden and French Montana since her unofficial split from Lamar.
The KUWTK star is currently rumored to be dating Tristan Thomas. However, she is yet to enter a committed relationship since marrying Lamar Odom.

Many fans doubt that Khloe will go through with the divorce and some hope that she gets back with Lamar Odom.
There have been reports over the past year of the former lovebirds discussing reconciliation. However, Lamar Odom’s unpredictable behavior have prevented the married couple from getting back together.
There have not been any reports on Lamar Odom’s current state since it has been rumored that Khloe is dating Tristan Thompson.
It is unclear whether the former NBA star is back to doing drugs or is resuming his training so that he can play basketball professionally.

According to Hollywood Life, just last month Khloe was concerned that Lamar could die due to his behavior.
“You can’t do anything if the person is not willing to take control of their life and get help. It was like five steps backwards. I don’t even know what to do and I told him, ‘You know you could die right now.'” We’re really hoping Lamar is able to get his life, and recovery, back on track soon.”
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian are yet to be officially divorced.
