Lamar Odom was caught drinking again on Sunday. The former basketball player was photographed by paparazzi drinking cognac during the middle of the day at a bar inside the Beverly Center shopping mall in Los Angeles. This is the second time in the past six weeks that Odom has been spotted publicly boozing, following his overdose on cocaine and sexual enhancement pills, which left him in a coma and on life support last fall.

This time around, while a friend of Odom’s shopped, he drank cognac in one of mall’s bars, where he chatted up different women, before paying $60 and leaving. Interestingly, on Sunday’s “Keeping Up With The Kardashians,” Khloe Kardashian tells Odom on the flight home from Kanye West’s “Yeezy Season 3” fashion show in February about how he was in a coma for four days, but even though he miraculously survived, he needs “to be a little more afraid.” She tells her estranged husband, “You’re very rare. Bad things can happen if you go back to that life. This is a second chance.”

It seems, however, that Odom has gone somewhat back to “that life.” As Gossip Cop previously reported, hours before attending church with the Kardashians on Easter Sunday, the former basketball player was photographed drinking cognac at the Sherman Oaks, California bar Johnny O’Brien. Of course, that first incident and this latest with Odom drinking is all the more shocking since he previously put his health in such crisis at a Nevada brothel last October that he was rushed while unresponsive to a Las Vegas hospital, where he suffered multiple strokes. Neither Odom nor his rep have commented about him being caught drinking again.
