Lamar Odom Spotted at Strip Club in NYC Following Troubling Airplane Incident
By Desiree Murphy
Lamar Odom has finally made it to New York City -- and apparently, he isn't taking a moment of his getaway for granted.
Just one night after the former NBA pro was allegedly removed from a Delta Air Lines flight for being drunk and vomiting repeatedly, Odom was spotted partying at the CityScapes Gentlemen's Club in Queens on Tuesday.
According to @Darxnyght_, Odom arrived around 3:15 a.m. with "2-3 girls and a couple guys" in a G Wagon. "There was another SUV in their crew," @Darxnyght told ET. "They pulled up and came into the club. They stayed about 45 minutes."
"Lamar was really cool -- happy, jovial and pretty mellow," the gentlemen's club owner added. "He wasn’t drinking any alcohol. He asked for a water and a cranberry juice. He sat at his table in the corner and wasn’t crazy or anything. He was by himself at times, just relaxing. It didn’t look like he was with any of the girls as a date -- no affection or PDA with anyone. He tried to stay under the radar as much as possible. He took pictures with anyone who asked him for one, and was really friendly to anyone who went up to his table."
"We wanted to make sure [Lamar] was taken care [of]," he continued. "The story about the plane is crazy and sad. We're all human. When I knew he was coming, I didn't anticipate any drama. I know he's a normal guy. He's so nice, so I wanted to make sure he was all good."
Earlier in the day, Odom was also spotted grabbing dinner with two other men at a restaurant in Queens. One of his young fans, a boy named Malachi Miller, snagged a photo with Odom around 6 p.m. The 5-year-old's mother later told ET that Odom seemed to be in good spirits during the outing.
"My son ran up to him said, 'What's up, Lamar?'" she recalled. "Lamar smiled and said, 'What's up, lil man?' My son was telling him how he plays basketball like him, and then my son asked him for a picture and he said, 'Come on, let's take one!'"
"Lamar was very humble and gave off such a positive vibe," she continued. "He was a very nice guy. He looked really happy. I didn't know anything happened on the plane until I saw it on the news this morning. He looked fine when we saw him. I pray he bounces back. Kids like mine look up to him."
As ET previously reported, Odom was aboard a red-eye flight traveling from Los Angeles to the Big Apple when the incident occurred in the first-class area of the plane.
Odom's estranged wife, Khloe Kardashian, took to Twitter following the news, simply tweeting a sad face emoji. As many fans of the former pair may recall, the reality star supported Odom throughout his recovery after he was found unresponsive in a room at the Love Ranch brothel in Crystal, Nevada, last October due to a drug overdose.
Now, their relationship has taken a turn. A source close to Kardashian tells ET that the two are no longer speaking consistently, revealing that "Khloe is very concerned" about his struggles with alcohol, "but doesn't know what she can do at this point."
