Lamar Odom collapses at a nightclub

Lamar Odom collapses at a nightclub

Just when it seemed as if Lamar Odom was getting back on track, he seemed to have had a setback when he fainted in a nightclub over the weekend.

Odom was in the VIP booth at Bootsy Bellows when he fell to the ground about 2 a.m. Sunday, TMZ Sports reported. "It was also very hot in the club", the rep said.

"Lamar is doing well", a rep for Odom told E! He nearly died from a drug overdose at a brothel in 2015.

Odom, who spent 14 years in the National Basketball Association and won two titles, said he was "sober" earlier this year after a rehab stint, but has sparked rumors of substance abuse in recent months with appearances at clubs and bars.

Apart from his athletic career, Odom is most well-known for marrying reality star Khloe Kardashian.

"I was screaming", said Kardashian, 33.

Khloe went ahead with finalizing their divorce and a year ago she started dating Cleveland Cavaliers player Tristan Thompson.

So scary to see something like this, especially with a person like Lamar Odom who has always been battling addiction. Back in 2001, Odom admitted to two violations of the NBA's drug policies.

One of his latest sit-down interviews was with none other than Wendy Williams in which he detailed his addictions and how he has recovered.
