Lamar Odom can't seem to get a grip on his vices and it's beginning to worry many closest to him.

The former NBA star was spotted drinking at a bar over the weekend, just hours before going to Easter service with his estranged wife Khloe Kardashian. For many people, this may not be an issue, but for Lamar, it could lead him down a dark path again.

The boozing is creating tension between him and Khloe, TMZ is reporting.

On March 29, Khloe suspiciously tweeted, "I hate this feeling.... Helpless," without further explanation, but many believe it refers to Lamar.

Khloe has been by his side ever since he nearly died when he was found unconscious in a Nevada brothel. The situation at the time looked incredibly dire. Khloe, though, vowed to stay with him while nursing him back to health, but she's unhappy with his choice to drink.

"We all are really, really sad he's decided to do this," a source told the celebrity website.

Lamar is apparently under the impression that he can "casually drink" and be totally fine. In fact, TMZ claims that he got up on Easter Sunday just to prove that he could function after a night at a Sherman Oaks, Calif., bar called Johnny O'Brien.

During his night out at the Irish pub, Lamar reportedly drank three Remy Martins, the same liquor he drank in the Nevada brothel during that fateful October evening.

According to multiple witnesses, Lamar got to the bar with 2 unidentified male friends just before midnight on Saturday—and stayed until around 1 AM on Sunday.

Sources at the bar say Lamar was wearing the same clothes he eventually wore to church on Easter morning.

Up until this incident, Lamar seems to be doing incredibly well and focused entirely on his health, a good thing considering his past, which has been rumored to be filled with alcohol and drug abuse.

Aside from her tweet about being "helpless," Khloe also retweeted posts from preacher and TV personality Joel Osteen. "When something doesn't work out your way, it doesn't mean God has failed you. It means He's planning something better," he wrote on Monday, but she retweeted on Tuesday.

She also retweeted his words, "When you have faith despite how the situation looks, God will move heaven and earth to do what He promised."
