Following their divorce in 2016, Khloe and Lamar remained on speaking terms since the reality star was still deeply concerned about her ex’s substance abuse, which was one of the reasons their marriage collapsed, to begin with.
But when Khloe was getting serious with NBA star Tristan Thompson, their communication fizzled out and the two aren’t said to have spoken since.
In recent interviews, Lamar has made it clear that he has no problems with Khloe or her family, and that while he doesn’t see himself reconciling with his ex-wife, he wishes her nothing but the best.
This correlates with what sources have gushed to Hollywood Life, telling the publication that there was no tension between the former couple.
Lamar and Khloe had both attended Kobe Bryant’s Celebration Of Life memorial, which also included guests Shaquille O’Neal, Magic Johnson, Stephen Curry, just to name a few.
The father-of-two would have shared a closer bond with the former athlete given that they both played for the Lakers together at one point.
But the Kardashians also knew Kobe well since both of their families lived in Calabasas, California.
Sources added that Odom was too busy thinking about Kobe and his family to take much notice of Khloe and her family upon his arrival at the Staples Center, where the event was held.
“Lamar had to put all his emotion and time and concentration to Kobe and Gianna today,” a source gushed.
“He knew Khloe was there but it wasn’t the day to feel apprehensive towards her or anyone or anything. During the service, they were away from each other and if they crossed paths Lamar would never make it about himself or any drama.”
Khloe attended the memorial with her sister, Kim Kardashian, momager, Kris Jenner, and brother-in-law, Kanye West, so there would have been plenty of people Lamar would have had to avoid if there was some sort of issue between them.
But according to the publication, Lamar was perfectly fine running into one of the Kardashians if it happened because he doesn’t have any problems with them.
“He would have said ‘Hello’ and moved on with his day. It was not on his radar at all to interact with anyone in the Kardashian family. Lamar was there for Kobe and Gianna only, that is where he focused all of his attention.”
Since his divorce in 2016, Lamar has since moved on with his new love, socialite Sabrina Parr, and the pair are already engaged to be married. Odom popped the question in November 2019, but no official wedding date has been set just yet.
