After recent reports that Lamar Odom is trying to save his marriage with Khloe Kardashian by agreeing to random drug tests and pledging to stay sober, new claims are being raised that Odom has once again fallen off the wagon. However, there is a possibility that these claims could be nothing more than vicious rumors.
New claims are emerging after witness say they saw Odom drinking heavily at Beacher's Madhouse, a popular eatery in Hollywood, Calif., and not leaving until the restaurant closed around 2:30 a.m.
The new allegations come just a days after news surfaced that Lamar volunteered to undergo random drug tests and to stop hanging out with those considered to be bad influences.
"Lamar has also stopped hanging out with his shady drug friends, and has cut off all contact with them. There was a time when Khloe would call Lamar and he wouldn't call her back for hours, or even days, as he would disappear on drug binges," a source close to the couple told Radar Online.
However, considering that Lamar Odom is a professional athlete, drug and drinking allegations seem contradictory.
There were however other positive signs that the two are closer to reconciliation after the two were seen in public together at Kanye West's concert at Staples Center is Los Angeles.
"Now, whenever Khloe calls him, Lamar almost always answers the phone, and if he doesn't, he calls her back right away," the source said. "Lamar is doing everything possible to try and get his marriage back on track."
Sources close to the family reveal Jenner has been "acting as the de facto marriage counselor and mediator between Lamar and Khloe," to RadarOnline.com.
While the celebrity couple has had a difficult past couple of months, Kris is supporting Khloe while advising her to fight for her marriage.
"She is encouraging Khloe not to give up on her marriage and not file for divorce … Khloe hasn't been able to forgive him yet, but a divorce likely won't happen," the insider added.
