Looks like Lamar Odom is in desperate need of a reality check! After surviving a crazy brush with death in 2015, the former basketball star seems to think he’s totally indestructible — so much so that he’s reportedly refused to stop his partying ways. Scary right?
Can someone please knock some sense into Lamar Odom, 36? The former NBA player reportedly thinks he is untouchable — and he’s not afraid to test that theory! Lamar even bragged to his estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, 31, that “nothing will happen” to him. Yikes!
“She is very worried, but Lamar refuses to listen to her,” an insider revealed to Us magazine of the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star. “He actually said, ‘Nothing will happen to me. Look at how I survived this last one.’” Uhh, that’s definitely not how life works, Lamar! If anything, the athlete should be thanking his lucky stars that he made it out of his near-death experience alive. Why he’d reportedly want to mess with his life again is beyond us!

It’s no secret that Lamar has had major issues with alcohol and substance abuse. After all, he was THIS close to death after he was found unconscious at a Nevada brothel in October 2015. But it appears that Lamar STILL hasn’t learned his lesson when it comes to staying sober. The former basketball player even hit up Johnny O’Brien’s pub in LA on March 26 and ordered multiple drinks, according to TMZ.
“Between rehab and being at home, Lamar feels like a caged animal,” a source revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com. “The man’s feeling better, he’s got his wings back and wants to celebrate being alive.” And while we totally understand why Lamar should be celebrating, is it REALLy the smartest idea to celebrate by doing what got you into trouble in the first place? Our inside source even claimed that Lamar is now begging Scott Disick, 32, to take him to Vegas!
Needless to say, the Kardashian klan is freaking out! “Khloe’s in disbelief and at the same time she’s numb from the pain that Lamar continues to bring her,” another insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Poor Khloe! She’s been nothing but supportive of Lamar since his overdose, even having him move in with her so she could take care of him. But as of now, it seems like Khloe is ready to put Lamar — and his bad habits — in the past. “For Khloe’s own sanity and mental strength, she has to disengage from Lamar completely,” our source explained. “She’s yet to ever really do that. But when she does, that’s going to be single-handedly the most rewarding decision she’s made in her life.”
What do you think about Lamar’s partying ways, HollywoodLifers? Is he in need of a reality check?
