An intoxicated Lamar Odom was reportedly removed from an airplane in Los Angeles on Monday, TMZ reports.
Odom, a reality show star and former NBA champion, was seen drinking beers and whiskey at a Los Angeles International Airport prior to boarding his flight to New York. After Odom boarded his flight, he reportedly vomited in the plane’s galley before moving to the bathroom.
Passengers reported seeing vomit on Odom’s clothes.
After being escorted off the plane, Odom returned 10 minutes later and again went to the bathroom to throw up. He was again asked to leave the plane.
The incident forced the flight to be delayed for 40 minutes.
Odom has had problems with substance abuse in the past. In October, he was airlifted from a Nevada brothel after he was discovered passed out following a days-long bender in which he mixed alcohol and “herbal viagra.”
Odom played 14 seasons in the NBA, winning two titles with the Los Angeles Lakers and the 1999-00 Rookie of the Year Award. He is married reality show star Khloe Kardashian, and has appeared on numerous episodes of “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” throughout the years. Odom and Kardashian are currently in the process of a divorce.
