Ugh, Lamar Odom news gets sadder and sadder…
After essentially becoming homeless and relapsing/upchucking all over a Delta flight, Lamar Odom’s family staged an intervention in New York City on Friday to see if they could nip this shiz in the bud. But, Lamar was not having any of it. He did what lots of people do when they can’t deal with the reality of what’s happening to them: he bailed.
“Lamar was doing really bad and his family was going to stage an intervention on Friday,” the insider tells Us.
The source confirms that the mediation took place on Friday night with several of Odom’s close family members, including his ex-wife Liza Morales, aunt JaNean Mercer, his children and several of his cousins.
According to Extra, the retired Los Angeles Lakers star “was extremely surprised” by the intervention and “left the location.”

So where’d he go? Not back to Calabasas. Apparently, the 6-foot-10 star has since been spotted at numerous NYC strip clubs which is probably the last place he should be (I mean…at least he wasn’t spotted buying drugs?). This whole thing is so sad, though. I hope Lamar gets the help he needs.

I fear for Lamar Odom.
Dude has been all over the map in terms of recovery, drinking, being helped and not. I do think it’s true when people say he’s lucky to be alive, but I also feel sad for him, because clearly his life is falling apart (again). And the bad news keeps coming, because the dude was taken off a Delta flight Monday night after getting completely wasted in the airport lounge and then vomiting on the plane. Yikes.
Lamar went to the Delta lounge at LAX before boarding a red-eye for NYC, and according to eyewitnesses was pounding down beers and whisky. By the time he got on the flight, we’re told he was wasted.
Two passengers in first class tell TMZ, Lamar went to 4B and sat down, but as the plane was about to pull back he bolted for the front, threw up in the galley and then walked in the bathroom and with the door open threw up again. When he came out of the bathroom, we’re told he had vomit on his clothes.
The passengers tell us the flight attendants “gently” escorted Lamar off the plane, and a cleaning crew came on board to deal with the mess. The flight attendants put Lamar’s carry-on belongings in a plastic bag and removed them from the plane.
Ten minutes later, Lamar suddenly reappeared and walked down the aisle — with vomit still on his sweatpants — and took his seat again. Minutes later, we’re told Lamar got up and went back to the bathroom, using the heads of people in their seats to steady his balance.
One of the passengers told the flight attendant, “Don’t you know his history? I don’t want a dead body at 30,000 feet.” Lamar was again removed from the plane and the flight took off, arriving to NYC 40 minutes late.
This makes me SO. SAD. I really hope the guy gets the help he needs.

Um, this doesn’t sound good. At ALL.
Khloe Kardashian rented a $25k a month home for Lamar Odom just a couple blocks from her own Calabasas home to watch over him after he OD’d in Vegas last year. You know, like a normal ex-wife might? UGH, anyhow, she’s been kinda over that motherly role as of late- not only because she caught him drinking but because some family members found a crack pipe on the property. Yep, seems normal.
Apparently, Khloe threw Lamar out of the 6,400 square foot pad and is adamant about not renewing the lease. Now, Khloe’s also finally dealing with divorce proceedings, which adds insult to injury and shame. As of now, Lamar is apparently couch surfing in the valley which is a sad state of affairs for the once-respected basketball player.
I do feel badly for Lamar- I think he really needs to get some help with his addictions. I also think that Khloe should probably not be so “involved” in his recovery anymore. Sounds like she’s learned her lesson…

Khloe Kardashian went back to court a second time to end her marriage to Lamar Odom.
With the help of everybody’s attorney of the moment Laura Wasser, Khloe did a lil deja vu and filed another divorce for irreconcilable differences. Our sources say there is a prenup and the 2 worked out a property settlement the first time around, so now it’s just a waiting game.
The divorce is amicable, according to TMZ, and Khloe and Lamar are on good terms and he was given a heads-up she was filing. In the docs, Khloe does say she wants to legally drop the Odom name and go back to her maiden…KARDASHIAN. Jealous, Kris Jenner?
Khloe filed for divorce the first time in December 2013, and then the thing just kinda sat there as she tried to salvage her marriage. When Lamar OD’d at a Nevada brothel last October, Khloe dismissed the petition right before it was finalized. Apparently it wasn’t about getting back with Lamar, but she didn’t want to mess him up while he was recovering. But then, the drinking…
Onward and upward, Khloe!
