The 31-year-old reality star appeared to react to the news on Twitter after photos surfaced early Tuesday of Odom at Johnny O’Brien pub in Los Angeles.
“I hate this feeling…. Helpless,” Kardashian wrote before retweeting Joel Osteen, “When something doesn’t work out your way, it doesn’t mean God has failed you. It means He’s planning something better.”
Sources told TMZ Odom arrived at the bar with two friends just before midnight Saturday and stayed for over an hour. The 36-year-old former NBA star reportedly ordered three glasses of cognac and paid for them himself.
“We all are really, really sad he’s decided to do this,” an insider told the website. Sources said Odom believes he can “casually drink” without consequences, adding Kardashian disagrees with his choice to resume drinking.
Odom was hospitalized in October after being discovered unconscious in a Las Vegas brothel with cocaine in his system. He and Kardashian subsequently called off their divorce, although Kardashian later clarified she and Odom aren’t romantically involved.
“He almost died — if that’s not enough to keep him sober, then what is?” an insider told Entertainment Tonight. “If Lamar makes this a habit, Khloe will walk away for good this time. Khloe is shocked that he was caught drinking again.”
Odom spent Easter Sunday with Kardashian and her family following his night out at the bar. Kardashian recently explained her lasting friendship with her estranged husband, saying, “Just because you break up with someone doesn’t mean you lose that connection.”
