Lamar Odom claims he wants to rebuild his life in New York City, but that doesn’t seem to be happening. Sources report seeing him drinking heavily, smoking pot and visiting strip clubs.
And Daily Mail reports that Odom’s two children, 17-year-old Destiny and 15-year-old Lamar Jr., actually planned an intervention for their dad, but he skipped it to go partying.
“They are so upset,” a source said about the kids. “The kids really wanted the intervention to happen. Everyone wants Lamar to get help.”
This comes just a week after Odom’s family — including his ex-wife Liza Morales, aunt JaNean Mercer and addiction specialist Ron Dock — reportedly staged an intervention for him. The family reportedly Skyped in Darryl Strawberry, a former pro athlete and drug addiction survivor, to help convince Odom to go to Florida to Strawberry’s recovery center. According to Daily Mail, a friend tipped off Odom about the plan, and he left the gathering early to head to another strip club.
Odom’s erratic behavior should be worrying his family. Nine months after he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel after overdosing on drugs, he’s back to his partying ways. Earlier this month, he was kicked off a Delta Airlines flight from Los Angeles to New York because he vomited on the plane. He had reportedly been pounding drinks in a passenger lounge before boarding the flight.
Though Odom’s estranged wife, Khloé Kardashian, was by his side through much of his overdose scare last year, she seems to have parted ways with him again since then, and the two have restarted their divorce proceedings.
