Again! Lamar Odom Collapses at Los Angeles Club (Video)
Lamar Odom collapsed in a Los Angeles nightclub on Sunday morning, and the video is currently making rounds on social media.
According to TMZ which obtained the video, the former NBA player is seen slumped over in the VIP section of the club as security guards tended to him. After helping him get seated on a nearby sofa, one of the guards can be heard asking, “Are you alright, man?”
But Odom was visibly too dazed to respond.
TMZ adds that the former husband of Khloe Kardashian was seen drinking for ‘several hours’ at the club before the incident which reportedly occurred at about 2 a. m. And this sad event comes months after he spoke about his drug and alcohol addiction.
“I wasn’t in a good place mentally, especially mentally before that incident [at the brothel] happened,” he told The Doctors in January, and in July, he told Wendy Williams about his struggle for sobriety after the 2015 Nevada incident that almost cost him his life. He said:
“At that point in my life, I was doing coke every day. Pretty much every second of free time that I had, I was doing coke. I couldn’t control it. I didn’t want to control it. When I woke up in the hospital room in Nevada, I couldn’t move. I couldn’t talk. I was trapped inside my own body. My throat hurt like hell. I looked down and I had all these tubes coming out of my mouth.
So I panicked. I started trying to pull them out, but I couldn’t because my hands were so weak. The nurses came running in to stop me. You ever had a really bad dream, where you’re trying to run away from a monster or some shit, and you just can’t run? Your legs don’t work like they should, and the monster is coming right behind you, and it’s like you’re in slow motion. That’s what it felt like.”
It is sad that the former successful NBA star is slipping again. Will he find a lasting solution to his dangerous addiction? We hope so.
