Lamar Odom has been living under the radar for several months, as his life entered a downward spiral following his drug issues and split from Khloe Kardashian. But the former NBA star resurfaced in Las Vegas Monday, RadarOnline.com has learned, after the sudden death of his best friend, Jamie Sangouthai, from a reported drug overdose.
Odom was spotted boarding a Delta flight to Los Angeles in the Las Vegas airport on Monday afternoon.
“He told the guy next to him that he's flying home because a friend died,” an eyewitness tells Radar. "He also said Cleveland is going to win the NBA finals."
Despite his personable appearance at the flight gate, another source added, "Lamar is extremely emotional and upset about his friend dying.”
