Lamar Odom has been pictured allegedly drinking alcohol hours before attending a church service with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian.

The basketball player was spotted at an Irish bar in Sherman Oaks, California, where he ordered several drinks, according to website TMZ.

Lamar, 36, has had a well-publicised battle with addiction, and recently spent several months in hospital as he recovered from a drug overdose and a series of strokes after being found unconscious in a brothel near Las Vegas in October.

The towering athlete arrived at the Johnny O'Brien pub just before midnight on Saturday, and stayed until around 1am on Sunday, staff and patrons at the bar confirmed to TMZ.

He was pictured hours later with Khloe, 31, arriving to church for the Easter Sunday service, wearing the same grey sweatshirt as the night before and clutching a Starbucks coffee cup.

Kim Kardashian's sister split from the former US basketball player in December, 2013 and subsequently filed for divorce. However, she put the legal filing on hold after he was found seriously ill in the brothel. She kept a bedside vigil and has helped nurse him back to health.

Their constant appearances together have sparked rumours of a reunion. However, Khloe insists their relationship is strictly platonic.

"We're not back together. We're not at all," Khloe told US chat show The Talk last month. "I love him with every fibre of my being... but we were married and I shared that union with him. I didn't want for our divorce to happen, but it happened for many reasons and that doesn't mean I'll just forget about this person in a time of need."
