Season 12 of Keeping Up with the Kardashians has only just begun, but the family is seriously bringing the drama. We knew before it even started that we would be seeing more men this season, as a trailer for Season 12 teased that both Rob and Lamar would be returning. Although still estranged, Scott has also been around and trying to get attention from Kourtney, who really seems to have put the nail in the coffin of their relationship. Despite his attempts to clean up his act by decorating his new house with the help of Kris and his ex, he still let his old habits creep in by partying with Tyga, Kylie's boyfriend, which of course sent Kourtney into a rage. In the latest episode, the whole family flew to New York for Kanye's fashion show and Lamar made his first public appearance since his near overdose last year. In case you haven't seen the episode, you can catch up with our recap of Episode 2 of KUWTK Season 12 here. Lamar seemed somber throughout the episode, while Khloé was clearly agitated and nervous about what him making such a pubic comeback might do to his recovery.

It appears that despite Lamar's near-death experience last year, he may not have learned the lesson that the Kardashians, Khloé in particular, hoped he would. This past weekend, he was spotted drinking at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. Onlookers said he was seen ordering and sipping Cognac at a bar within the mall, while the friend he went with was shopping nearby. It seems like a major setback for the former NBA player, especially as the news comes on the heels of this past Sunday's episode in which Lamar was seen acknowledging that he has been given a second chance at life.

Khloé even said that if he were to continue on the right track, there would be hope of them reconciling their relationship in the future. Unfortunately, Lamar's recent downturn likely caused her to rethink that statement, since he is still in recovery and should not be consuming any alcohol given the damage his body sustained. Hopefully Lamar will continue down the right path, rather than fall back into his old ways. For more Keeping Up with the Kardashians updates click the green subscribe button below!
