TMZ – Lamar Odom went to the Delta lounge at LAX before boarding a red-eye for NYC, and according to eyewitnesses was pounding down beers and whisky. By the time he got on the flight, we’re told he was wasted.
[After Odom threw up on himself and the galley,] passengers tell us the flight attendants “gently” escorted Lamar off the plane, and a cleaning crew came on board to deal with the mess. The flight attendants put Lamar’s carry-on belongings in a plastic bag and removed them from the plane.
Ten minutes later, Lamar suddenly reappeared and walked down the aisle — with vomit still on his sweatpants — and took his seat again. Minutes later, we’re told Lamar got up and went back to the bathroom, using the heads of people in their seats to steady his balance.
One of the passengers told the flight attendant, “Don’t you know his history? I don’t want a dead body at 30,000 feet.” Lamar was again removed from the plane and the flight took off, arriving to NYC 40 minutes late.
Oh look at this passenger with that judgmental “don’t you know his history?” Yes, we know his recent history; allegedly crack and dick pills and all night benders and fucking Khloe Kardashian back when she was built like one of those bean bag chair sofas. And you know what? Seems like things are on the up and up for Lamar. The people allowing him to rub his pukey hands on their hands to stand up were kind but maybe we should encourage him even more and tenderly dab the chunks of SkyLounge Cheez Its and pretzels from his cheeks, get him a watered down Jack, and let him keep improving his life. You’ve come a long way since overdosing in a brothel, Lamar. You’ve come an even longer way since being a first round draft pick and multimillionaire athlete but, hey, let’s not live in the past and focus on the vomit-covered now.
That said, all of these passengers deserve a refund or some serious Skymiles. There is NOTHING worse than being in close quarters with vomit. I was in an Uber with someone throwing up not too long ago (trust me I know, this clip seems relevant) and even though it was mostly just blueberry skins, lettuce, and white sangria, it was fucking horrific and nauseating to be in the vicinity of it as it happened. Vomit just has that effect. Lamar pounding whiskey and beer and probably eating junk food, you just know his puke was about as vile as can be. If we’re grading vomits you don’t want next to you on a cross-country flight, Lamar’s has to be high on the list and worthy of a complaining King’s ransom from Delta.
PS despite the vomit in the Uber the driver was still 100x nicer than that dude from earlier. Five stars.
