There are no hard feelings between Lamar Odom and Khloé Kardashian. The former NBA star finally opened up about his ex-wife’s pregnancy and he only had good things to say about the expecting KUWTK star — for the most part.
“To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person. I was really happy for her,” he told Access Hollywood in an interview airing Monday, Feb. 26. “I know if she could take care of a grown man for four years the way she took care of me, I know she could take care of a baby.”
He playfully added, “That’s gonna be one spoiled a– baby, too.” Khloé is expecting her first child with boyfriend Tristan Thompson and finalized her divorce from Odom in 2016 after five years of marriage.
Previously, Lamar shaded the brunette beauty for her taste in men. I still got [her] name still on me — I mean, her initials still on me. For no reason. I understand when it’s over, it’s over,” he said on the new BET show Mancave last month. “When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”
However, Khloé’s sister Kim Kardashian quickly came to her defense, tweeting, “Or second or third brothel.” Last year, Tristan called out Lamar after he appeared on an episode of The Doctors and confessed to still being in love with Khloé.
“He called up Lamar and told him he acted foolishly, and he warned him to stay away from Khloé or else,” a source told Life & Style. “Tristan doesn’t want any drama in his life. Khloé is his woman, and there’s no way he’s going to allow anyone to get in the way of his relationship.” As for Khloe, she has moved on as well. “I want Lamar to be happy with Lamar again,” she said following their divorce. “I want Lamar to fall in love with his life one more time.”
