Lamar Odom is making waves for appearing to be drunk at the popular club Beacher’s Madhouse on Wednesday, Oct. 30 — despite recently claiming that he’s been clean for weeks.
Lamar Odom’s high-profile marriage to Khloe Kardashian, 29, has been a tabloid staple since Aug. 2013 due to reports of drug use and infidelity. So it definitely doesn’t help that Lamar, 33, was spotted “very drunk” with a group of friends at Beacher’s Madhouse in Hollywood on Wednesday, according to TMZ. Eyewitnesses claimed that the embattled basketball star was downing Patron and champagne all night, which seems to be a major setback for Lamar’s supposed recovery.
Lamar Odom Out All Night: Was He Drunk?
Lamar has come under fire for his devastating alleged drug addiction, so obviously drinking copious amounts — scratch that, any amount — of alcohol is bad news for an addict. An eyewitness claimed that Lamar was “hammered” on Oct. 30, but not on drugs — alcohol was clearly the culprit, due to Lamar’s troubling behavior at the club.
After closing time at 2 AM, Lamar was spotted searching for the after party in the valet area; a clear sign that he wasn’t planning to go home anytime soon. This is all very bad news for Khloe and Lamar, who have supposedly been trying their best to reconcile over the past few weeks, but only on the condition that he stay clean.
Hopefully there’s an explanation for this, because for the first time in months it seemed that Lamar was headed towards recovery, so we’d hate to see him slip back into substance abuse.
Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom: Unbreakable?
The wild night out comes as a surprise, as he spoke about the solid status of his marriage mere hours before at an LA comedy club. “We’re wonderful,” Lamar told US Weekly. “We’re unbreakable. That’s why I wear my wedding ring. It is a beautiful ring. From a beautiful wife.”
Of course we wish Khloe and Lamar nothing but the best as they navigate stormy waters during this difficult time, even as reports surface that Khloe may be planning to file for divorce.
