Somewhere, Khloé Kardashian is shaking her head. The Keeping Up With the Kardashians star, 31, tweeted about disappointment on Sunday, May 8, after her ex Lamar Odom was allegedly spotted drinking again.
“SMH,” Kardashian, who helped Odom recover following his October overdose, tweeted on Sunday after photos of the athlete appearing to drink an alcoholic beverage at the Beverly Center in West Hollywood appeared online. “Hummmmmm ... People disappoint,” she added a little over an hour later.
Although Kardashian didn’t directly reference the former baller, the timing of her tweet is more than a little coincidental.
And this isn’t the first time that Odom has been around alcohol since he almost died. This past Easter, the athlete accompanied friends to an Irish pub in Sherman Oaks, California. Although Odom purchased drinks for his friends, sources told Us at the time that he didn’t drink.
“He went out with Khloé’s security to meet some friends and get out of the house. He bought them the drinks, but didn’t drink himself,” an insider previously told Us. “Khloé’s security guard was with him, which is just like having Khloé with you. He just wanted to get out into the real world for a second and feel normal.”
As previously reported by Us Weekly, and as documented on season 12 of Keeping Up With the Kardashians, Odom almost died after overdosing at a brothel in Nevada last October. After weeks in a coma, the former Lakers player woke up to the help of the Strong Looks Better Naked author and her famous family. The slimmed-down E! star has since helped Odom purchase a home near her own Calabasas, California, pad to help him rehabilitate.
Despite his progress, Kardashian is still concerned about Odom relapsing. “She is very worried, but Lamar refuses to listen to her,” an insider previously told Us. “He actually said, ‘Nothing will happen to me. Look at how I survived this last one.’”
