Lamar Odom sober during strip club visit

Lamar Odom sober during strip club visit

Lamar Odom stayed sober during his visit to a strip club on Tuesday (12.07.16).

Although the 36-year-old former basketball star was reportedly removed from a flight for being "wasted" after he downed beers and whisky at Los Angeles International Airport on Monday (11.07.16), he was on his best behaviour while out in New York the following night.

The owner of CityScapes Gentlemen's Club told the New York Post's Page Six: "He just asked for water and cranberry juice. He didn't drink any alcohol at all.

"He came with a group, three females and three guys. It didn't seem like he was on a date with any of the girls or anything, they were just a bunch of his friends from the area. He called about an hour ahead and we got the VIP area ready for him.

"He came around 3:15 am and stayed 'til last call at 3:45; we close at 4. He let people come over to say hi and take pictures while he was there. He was really chill and friendly. He didn't get any dances or anything."

Although Lamar remained sober at the strip club, the star - who suffered a near-fatal overdose in a Las Vegas brothel last October - has allegedly returned to his former ways by binge drinking more than he ever has done.

Speaking to PEOPLE about the estranged husband of Khloé Kardashian, 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."
