Lamar Odom visits bar

Lamar Odom splashed out $60 on Cognac on Sunday (08.05.16) afternoon.

The troubled sportsman almost died last October after collapsing in a Nevada brothel following a drugs and alcohol binge and promised estranged wife Khloe Kardashian he would get sober, and following a relapse in March, it seems he still isn't keeping his word as new pictures have surfaced of him drinking.

According to TMZ, the 36-year-old basketball player visited the Beverly Center with a friend, but while his pal shopped for shoes, Lamar went to a bar within the mall and ordered the same type of booze he had been drinking when he collapsed, spoke with a few women and, after racking up a $60 bill, left.

Later on Sunday, Lamar was seen telling Khloe's family he had seen Heaven after his collapse in the 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians'.

He told Kourtney Kardashian he had had "real in-depth dreams with people who passed on".

Khloe added: "I think he went to Heaven from the conversations he has with me."

And the 31-year-old beauty admitted she hoped Lamar would look after himself more following his brush with death.

She said: "I kinda want him to be a little more afraid.

"Bad things can happen if you go back to that life. This is, like, a second chance."

The 'Kocktails With Khloe' host - who split from Lamar in 2013 but never completed their divorce - was very supportive of the sportsman after his collapse, but appeared to distance herself when he was spotted downing drinks with two friends at the Johnny O'Brien pub in Sherman Oaks, California, in the early hours of Easter Sunday morning (27.03.16), shortly before he attended church with her and her famous family.

At the time, she tweeted: "I hate this feeling.... Helpless."

It was recently claimed Khloe is keen to press on with her divorce from Lamar, having put proceedings on hold while he was hospitalised, now that he has started drinking again.

However, she is concerned at how finally ending their marriage would affect him and she is experiencing a "tremendous amount of guilt".

Despite his past problems, Lamar is said to be adamant he doesn't need rehab, and visiting bars is just him trying to live a normal life, but his estranged wife and her family are certain that isn't the case, having experienced the same situation with him multiple times in the past.
