Lamar Odom's family and friends 'fear he's back on drugs'

Lamar Odom's family and friends reportedly fear he's back on hard drugs.

The retired basketball star - who is still married to his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian - nearly died in 2015 after he overdosed on drugs at a Nevada brothel.

But friends of the 36-year-old star fear he has already gone back to his drug-using ways after they found crack pipes in his home, according to the gossip website TMZ.

Lamar is also reported to have been acting very strangely over the last few weeks, furthering his friends' suspicions that he has started using drugs once more.

Earlier this year, Khloe admitted she didn't shower for a week in the midst of Lamar's drug-related health crisis.

The reality TV beauty, who is currently trying to finalise her divorce from the former sportsman, rushed to be by his hospital bedside after he collapsed inside a brothel.

She shared: "Mentally, it took its toll. But it wasn't about me. I realised how much it was about [Lamar] so I didn't think twice about it."

She admitted, too, that her stress levels rose to such an extent that she also struggled to sleep because of her concern for her former lover.

Khloe shared: "Normally, when I'm going through stuff, I have my release of energy or stress at the gym.

"But I literally didn't leave the room for a month. I wasn't sleeping as well. I went a week without showering."

Khloe and Lamar have been married since 2009, but split in 2013. Since then, the 31-year-old star has dated rapper French Montana and basketball player James Harden.
