Lamar Odom's alleged relapse takes a frightening turn
Everyone thought he hit rock bottom — but Lamar Odom has reportedly relapsed hard, and now he's taking his anger out on Khloé Kardashian.
While many hoped he was scared straight by the overdose that nearly killed him last fall, Odom started drinking again before Easter and, even more heartbreaking, a group of friends say they found drug paraphernalia scattered around his apartment when they attempted to stage an intervention.
Kardashian had been by his side for most of it, but there is only so much a girl can take, and as she has started pulling away, Odom has started freaking out on her.
"He's totally lost it, calling her every name under the sun and yelling at her for breaking promises she made to him on his death bed," an insider told Radar Online.
"It's pretty vicious," continued the insider, adding that Odom "has been bombarding her with bitter texts and drunken rambling messages that are starting to scare her.
"She's now considering a restraining order against him because he's been threatening all kinds of crazy things, from spilling all her secrets to hoping she drops dead.
"He's broke and desperate and she's his last remaining source of cash — he's so out of control he's capable of anything."
It's a very sad situation, considering how hopeful his future looked when he appeared happy and healthy at Kanye West's New York Fashion Week show.
Since Kardashian's new tough love approach has garnered such a dramatically bad reaction, Odom's east coast family is trying the opposite tactic. According to TMZ, his aunt, cousin and other family members spent Friday showering him with love in an attempt to talk him into voluntarily checking into a rehab program. So far, no dice.
