Lamar Odom is back to his old ways and his two children — Destiny Odom and Lamar Odom Jr. — are worried. The former Los Angeles Lakers player is said to have been kicked out of the rental home he was living in, thanks to estranged wife Khloé Kardashian. He has since returned to his native New York City, which his kids fear may not be the best option for him.
According to a report from Us Weekly, Odom feels he does not need to return to Los Angeles. He believes he can start over in New York City, where he grew up, but not everyone believes him. Sources claim he’s been frequenting strip clubs, smoking marijuana and drinking in excess.
“He wants to rebuild his life in New York — but that’s not really happening,” an insider said.
Odom’s time in New York has been marred by controversy. On July 11, while flying out of Los Angeles, he was removed from a flight after he vomited. Sources told TMZ he had been at a bar in Santa Monica, California, before heading to the airport and was “really angry.” He eventually made it to New York, but was not seen or heard from for several days and source claimed it was due to his partying.
After the incident, fans flocked to Khloé’s Twitter page where they sent her a barrage of messages. Some wished her and Odom, 36, well. Others suggested that Kardashian should focus on getting Odom help, rather than “running the streets.” The “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star lashed out at her critics, telling one fan to “Stay in your f---ing lane.” Kardashian went on to say that the online hater knew “nothing about anything,” calling her “a sheep herded by society.”
Her estranged husband, who was hospitalized less than one year ago after a near-fatal overdose in a Nevada brothel, was removed from the home she rented for him on the same day. TMZ reported that Kardashian kicked Odom out of the house after she and other members of the Kardashian family allegedly discovered a crack pipe and other drug paraphernalia inside the home. Sources told the publication the lease on the home had come to an end and Kardashian did not renew. Odom had been living in the house, which is close to his estranged wife’s, since being released from the hospital.
