The state of Lamar Odom’s health is reportedly regressing after his collapse at his VIP booth at a Los Angeles nightclub in the wee hours of Sunday (Nov. 5) morning.

TMZ managed to catch clear cut footage of Odom’s collapse which occurred at Bootsy Bellows located on the Sunset Strip of L.A.. Around 2 am, Odom was seen falling to the ground by club workers and reportedly had several drinks prior to the episode.

According to Odom’s rep, the former NBA star was involved in an intense workout and was not equip with a sufficient amount of fluids in his system, which caused him to collapse from dehydration, later on at the club. “Lamar is doing well. He was dehydrated and had been in an intense workout earlier in the day. It was also very hot in the club.”

There are individuals who tend to think and believe, otherwise about the collapse. A source that is reportedly close to Odom told PEOPLE, “Lamar is spiraling again. He’s out of control.” The source proceeds to add, “He was better this spring but things got worse over the summer and everyone is worried things are going to get even worse and they’re scared for him.”

Ever since his near-death experience in 2015 for going into a coma after being discovered at a brothel in Crystal, Nevada, despite a well progressive recovery, spotting Odom in the club setting became rather, worrisome.

Last year, Odom’s 18-year-old daughter Destiny made it known to PEOPLE, “I basically gave him the ultimatum that it was rehab or me not speaking to him anymore. I think it hit him hard.” She continued on, “He’s just a lot clear and in the moment and he’s more apologetic. He’s able to see more the pain that he’s caused when he’s clean.”
