Lamar Odom's Hooters visit

Lamar Odom visited Hooters in New York twice this week.

The 36-year-old basketball star - who almost died last year after collapsing at a Nevada brothel following an alcohol and drugs binge - was spotted at a Queens branch of the restaurant chain, which is famous for its busty waitresses.

A witness told the New York Post's Page Six that Lamar visited the establishment with a group of male friends.

Meanwhile, it was recently claimed that Lamar walked out of an attempted intervention by his family, after they tried to convince him to enter rehab at the Darryl Strawberry Recovery Center in St. Cloud, Florida.

The facility has a number of drug and alcohol rehab and detox programs and treats individuals and athletes with alcohol, drug and prescription addictions.

Lamar's aunt JaNean Mercer, cousin Alvina Alston, ex-wife Liza Morales and children were all involved in the intervention and former Major League Baseball player Darryl joined in via Skype.

However, Lamar would not take their concerns seriously and walked out.

Last month it was reported that Lamar was removed from a flight for being "wasted" after he downed beers and whisky at Los Angeles International Airport.

He has reportedly returned to his former ways by binge drinking more than he ever has done, leaving his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian, who nursed him back to health last year, devastated.

A source said: "[Lamar] is back to treating his body worse than ever.

"Lamar's near death experience affected a lot of people. Especially Khloé. She put her life on hold for weeks to be by Lamar's side at the hospital 24/7. It was awful for Khloé to get the phone call that Lamar had overdosed.

"For days, she didn't know if he was going to make it. It infuriates her that Lamar is back to his old ways. Khloé was really hoping that the awful hospital experience would have a positive effect on Lamar, but it's really been the opposite."
