Lamar Odom's airport drinking binge was reportedly the result of depression, a source reveals. The recovering former athlete was kicked off a flight from LA to NYC on Monday after vomiting several times in the cabin, raising deep concerns about his sobriety and state of mind.
A source close to the former NBA star tells Us Weekly that Odom “flipped out and got depressed” just moments before taking flight. Before getting to the airport, Odom stopped at a bar in nearby Santa Monica and “got really angry and started getting drunk,” the source adds. “It’s really sad. He was doing so well in his [rehab] program.”
Could his estranged wife Khloé Kardashian's rumored relationship with Trey Songz have something to do with it? Or the fact that she recently kicked him out of the home she had been renting for him after he allegedly failed to stick to his sobriety plan? Only Lamar knows for sure, but hopefully he'll get back on the wagon soon.
