We’ve known for a long time that the chances of Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian mending their relationship was unlikely, but according to a new report, the duo will likely never be friends again. A source told Us Weekly that the famous exes are no longer talking and it’s all because of Lamar’s continued drug use.
“Khloé and Lamar have no communication,” an insider said. “She’s aware that he’s off the wagon and she has known it for a long time, so it’s not a surprise to her. She wishes for the best for him.” Considering KoKo is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson, it’s no wonder the 33-year-old is trying to avoid drama at all costs.
While Lamar’s overdose at a Nevada brothel back in 2015 marked his most public health battle, just this month, the former NBA star collapsed at an LA nightclub. But according to reps for the star, it was unrelated to drugs. “He was dehydrated and had been in an intense workout earlier in the day,” a rep told E! News in the hours following the incident. “It was also very hot in the club.”
Though the 38-year-old is claiming he’s still sober, shortly after the collapse, sources confirmed to People magazine that was far from the truth. “Lamar is spiraling again. He’s out of control,” the source said. “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.”
The basketballer has been open about his past drug use, and even detailed his struggles in an article for The Players’ Tribune. He opened up about how deep his addiction had gotten and that he “was doing coke every day. Pretty much every second of free time that I had, I was doing coke. I couldn’t control it. I didn’t want to control it.” While Lam hasn’t said much since his collapse, we hope he gets the help he needs.
