While Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom continue to spend time with each other since the latter's hospitalization despite the pair being separated, it seems the former still has a battle to fight if she wants to make a relationship work between them again because Odom is apparently seriously struggling in his recovery.

They split because of his drug and alcohol abuse, then they reunited (albeit not necessarily romantically) when he became comatose after an overdose at a brothel, and now they face separation again unless Khloe is strong enough to pull the former basketball player through yet another reported fall off the wagon. Odom was allegedly spotted drinking at an Irish bar called Johnny O'Brien in California on Saturday night (March 26th 2016). According to TMZ, bar staff confessed that he left in the early hours of Sunday morning after buying three Remy Martins; a brand of French cognac.

The rumours that he was there were confirmed by some pictures taken by other patrons showing a man of the same height, build and general appearance of Odom wearing gold-rimmed glasses, a gold chain and a grey hooded top with black drawstrings. Later paparazzi shots were unveiled showing Odom wearing those exact items on his way to church on Easter Sunday with Khloe, and Kourtney's two children Mason and Penelope.

On Tuesday morning, Khloe posted a rather cryptic message on Twitter. 'I hate this feeling.... Helpless', she said, though she has not elaborated on the issue and has neither confirmed nor denied that the Tweet was regarding her ex-husband.

Of course, Odom could've been buying the drinks for other people, though it's not known if the bar staff revealed he had ordered any soft drinks. And after all, three Remy Martins isn't so bad - though it may be enough to get Khloe worried, not just because of his history with alcohol abuse, but also because he hasn't long since recovered from his long stay in hospital.
