It’s been seven months since Lamar Odom‘s nearly fatal overdose at a Las Vegas brothel, and while it seems like the athlete is back in good health, sources tell RadarOnline he may be back to his old ways.
According to the site, Lamar’s friends are encouraging him to get help before he hits rock bottom again.
He’s reportedly started drinking again, and sources close to the situation say his loved ones are even pushing for him to enroll in a rehab program, but they haven’t made any leeway yet.
“Lamar is drinking in public and at home too,” a source said. “Since the Vegas overdose, Lamar’s mental faculties have been really messed up. It seems like he doesn’t even understand that he can’t drink or do drugs again. It’s like he forgot how close he was to death, and just thinks everything is fine again. But it isn’t, and everyone is really scared about him.”
The insider also claims that the former NBA all-star is mentally suffering and isn’t even aware of his actions: “Lamar is mentally unstable,” the source said. “He doesn’t know what he is doing. Lamar’s guys stay with him at all times to make sure that he doesn’t go overboard. But he just doesn’t listen.”
His loved ones are reportedly extremely concerned his habits will cause him to reach his demise this time, but he’s just not willing to hear it. “Everyone is worried about him,” the source said. “They’re afraid he will do drugs or drink too much and that will really kill him. But he just won’t listen right now.”

Prepare to be amazed. Just four months after he nearly died of a drug overdose in Las Vegas, Lamar Odom is fully on the mend…and we have the first video of him walking with Khloe Kardashian right here! Watch the pair arrive in NYC Feb. 11 and see him sweetly open the door for her right now!
Lamar Odom, 36, is the definition of a walking miracle. No, literally…he’s back on his feet and looking almost back to normal four months after he was rushed to the hospital in a coma. He’s even back to doing sweet and romantic things for Khloe Kardashian, 31, and one adorable gesture was caught on video Feb. 11!
Seriously, we cannot get over how great Lamar looks in this video. The still-married couple took a red eye from California to New York City on Feb. 10, and arrived at the Waldorf Astoria in the early morning of Feb. 11. Photogs caught the two entering the hotel, and even though LamLam was moving slowly, he’s walking totally on his own — can you believe in October doctors weren’t even sure he was going to LIVE!?
But, wait, it gets better. As if it’s not enough energy and effort for him to simply walk on his own, he still makes sure to accommodate Khloe, and holds the door open for her so she can walk inside first. What a gentleman! Clearly he hasn’t forgotten any of his manners after months in the hospital and recovery!
Lamar Odom and Khloe Kardashian have decided to call off their divorce, and while that’s good news for their marriage, it’s also apparently good fodder for comedians like Chris Rock.
Rock raised eyebrows on Thursday night when he tweeted out a joke about the state of Odom and Kardashian’s relationship, saying, “Here’s to Lamar Odom on being the first guy in history to have coke and hookers save his marriage.” He also tweeted out his support for Odom, who is still hospitalized, adding, “Stay strong Lamar.”
The response to the joke has been mixed, with some saying that it is “too soon” to be making jokes, as it was only last week that Odom was discovered unconscious in a Nevada brothel. But others seem to like the joke, even if they are a bit uncomfortable.
“@chrisrock Not sure if I should consider this inappropriate or hail you as a goddamn genius,” said one Twitter user.
“We laughed, We favorited but we won’t retweet…sooo messed up LOL,” said another.

Lamar Odom is currently fighting for his life after being found unconscious at Dennis Hof’s Love Ranch South in Pahrump, Nevada, TMZ is reporting.
The 35-year-old athlete was reportedly found with “mucus-type liquid coming out of his nose and mouth” after days of partying with various women and allegedly taking a herbal substitute for Viagra.
Khloé Kardashian’s ex, who has struggled with substance issues in the past, was initially intubated by doctors, and then airlifted to a nearby hospital in Las Vegas. Sources tell TMZ it’s “not good.”
