Sixteen months ago, Lamar Odom was kicked off of a plane for drunken barfing, and just when it seemed like he may have gotten his life back on track (or at least a rehab facility in close vicinity to the tracks), he had a setback. TMZ says that Lamar collapsed in his VIP booth at Bootsy Bellows in Hollywood on Saturday morning.
Several club patrons noticed that Lamar was slumped over in his booth around 2am. One clubgoer claims they saw Lamar drinking for several hours before he collapsed. TMZ posted a video of Lamar passed out, and it ends with him sitting upright and looking around. That’s good, I think? With Lamar’s history, that video could have easily ended with his ass on a stretcher inside an ambulance bound for Cedars-Sinai.
This wasn’t Lamar’s first trip back to the club after his stint in rehab late last year. TMZ says that Lamar was seen at a strip club last month, where he partied until 2am.
Lamar’s rep spoke to TMZ about what happened, and they claim that his collapse has everything to do with dehydration. Apparently Lamar had a pretty intense workout earlier in the day and wasn’t properly hydrated. His rep claims it was also very hot inside the club. He’s currently “doing great.”
To be honest, I feel like we’re playing pretty fast and loose with the definition of the word “great” here. After all, this is a man that has personally lived through the Kardashian family. So who even knows what visions of plastic surgeon-created horror were mentally projected after he blacked out? Let’s hope his brain did him a favor and just played a clip show featuring some of his best jump shots.
