Lamar Odom better not be looking to have cocktails with Khloe — because Ms. Kardashian reportedly wants her estranged hubby to go to rehab, not a pub.

Makes sense: Odom did overdose on a number of intoxicants just five months ago, putting, ahem, a serious dent in his life and hers, so it can't have gone over well when he was spotted ordering drinks at an Irish bar the night before Easter. On Easter, Lamar attended Sunday Mass with the Kardashian clan.

Substance abuse apparently hasn't been part of Lamar's recovery after his near-fatal OD, and now, according to TMZ, Khloe wants him to put down the Remy Martin and address his alleged issues with drugs, which trashed their marriage. Sources told the outlet that the former NBA player is having none of it, from her or members of his own family. Not even outpatient rehab.

Kardashian posted a few oblique thoughts Tuesday and Wednesday on Twitter, including a plaintive nod to her current feelings of helplessness.

But on Wednesday she was back playing defense — and perhaps alluding to Odom's inner struggle.

Years ago, Lamar talked about the heroin addiction of his father, Joe, in a 2011 episode of "Keeping Up With the Kardashians." "I witnessed things that a 10-year-old definitely wasn't supposed to see," he said. "It's hard for me to speak up on it and get it through to Khloe because she grew up so different."
