Khloé Kardashian 'Frustrated' As Lamar Odom Is Spotted Spending Time In NYC Strip Club — Full Timeline Following His Airplane Drama HERE!
Lamar Odom has had a newsworthy past few days.
As we told you yesterday, the troubled athlete was removed (twice) from a Delta flight after getting drunk in the airport lounge and vomiting in the cabin before take-off. His estranged wife Khloé Kardashian responded by lashing out at a fan who questioned her and L.O.'s tumultuous relationship.
As more information comes to light, we learn not only was the 36-year-old seen leaving an El Lay strip club just before heading to LAX on Monday… but he also eventually did make his way to NYC despite the vomiting incident, only to be spotted at another gentleman's club in the early hours of Wednesday morning.
Certainly you understand this is all very concerning considering Lamar is fresh off recovery from that nearly fatal overdose back in October.
So here's what we know:
E! News reports the former Lakers player spent roughly 90 minutes at 4Play Gentleman's Club in Los Angeles — where he spent $2,000 on drinks and lap dances — just hours before the plane incident on Monday night.
Later, despite being removed from the cross-country flight, Odom popped up in NYC on Tuesday where he was seen at Sports in Effect Inc. in Queens reportedly "well-managed and put together."
Turns out, according to Us Weekly, the father-of-three was headed to the Big Apple to surprise his son Lamar Jr. for his birthday:
"Lamar left his apartment [on Monday] after buying a plane ticket to NYC to go see his son and surprise his son for his birthday [on Tuesday]. Because the plane didn't leave until that evening, Lamar drove to a bar in Santa Monica and started drinking there … It's really sad. He was doing so well in his [rehab] program."
Odom is reportedly staying at his aunt's house during the visit, where his kids L.J. and Destiny came to visit on Tuesday to try to "talk some sense into him" as reports of the airplane incident surfaced.

While that's all wonderful, TMZ reports it wasn't until around 3:15 a.m. later that night Lamar was seen hanging out in VIP at CityScapes Gentlemen's Club in Queens. The silver lining here is that he wasn't seen drinking.

A source told the outlet:
"It's really sad for Khloé to see Lamar in an unhealthy place. She cares so much about him but she can only do so much."
Another insider added:
"She's not doing well. She is frustrated because she knows there is nothing she can do."
Oof. This is all just a lot to take in.
What do U think of Odom's behavior, Perezcious readers?? SOUND OFF in the comments!
