The reality star recently revealed that she was expecting her second child for her ex Tristan Thompson via surrogacy. Odom and Kardashian were married for a while before allegations of adultery compelled the “Keeping Up with the Kardashians” star to seek a divorce.
Following her breakup with Odom, Kardashian started dating basketball player Thompson, with whom she later had a kid. However, she broke up with Thompson several times due to infidelity issues. Despite the pair being officially apart, the duo are expecting a second child via surrogacy, of which Odom recently reacted to the news with a cheeky diss.
Lamar Odom Says ‘She Could Have Hollered’ At Him
According to reports obtained by Page Six, Odom apparently had issues with Kardashian having another child with Thompson. The professional basketball player reacted to the news of the reality star’s new journey to motherhood with a cheeky comment when he was interviewed around La Belle Vie Med Spa in Woodland Hills, Calif., on Tuesday.
“She could have hollered at me for that,” Odom, 42, said to a reporter who approached him about his view on his ex’s recent news.
Odom and Kardashian met at a party hosted by the Los Angeles Laker star teammate in 2009. The pair quickly struck a strong connection and wasted no time entering a relationship. Barely a month after the two tied the knot.
However, three years together was enough for cracks to come up in their relationship. Ultimately, Kardashian filed for divorce from Odom on December 13, 2013, which was finalized in December 2016. In the same year, she began dating another basketball player Thompson. The pair subsequently gave birth to their first daughter together, True, on April 12, 2018.
Lamar Odom ‘Was Really Happy For Her’
While Odom’s recent diss might have been viewed as the basket player hating on his ex, he was among those who congratulated Kardashian after hearing that she was expecting her first child with Thompson.
Although he and the reality star were unable to have a child together when they were married, he revealed in an interview at the time that he was thrilled that Kardashian would soon be a mother.
“To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person. I was really happy for her. 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, That’s going to be one spoiled a— baby,” Odom said in an interview with Access.
Tristan Thompson Cheated On Khloé Kardashian
Despite Odom’s best wishes, Thompson and Kardashian would not have the best relationship right from when she took in and even past the baby’s delivery. Thompson cheated on the reality star on several occasions, one of which resulted in him fathering a son with model Maralee Nichols.
In February 2019, the couple split after it was revealed that Thompson had allegedly cheated on Kardashian with her half-sister Kylie Jenner’s then-best friend Jordyn Woods. The news dealt a heavy blow to the couple’s relationship, as Kardashian immediately pushed for a split from the basketballer.
However, not long after, Kardashian and Thompson resumed their relationship but broke up again in June 2021. Fans had already written off the pair’s relationship as history until it was announced that they were expecting a baby boy via surrogacy.
‘He’s Just Not The Guy For Me’
The world believed that Kardashian and Thompson had permanently broken their relationship, so the news that she was carrying a child with him was startling. Although the announcement sparked rumors that the couple had resumed their romance, Kardashian revealed in April 2022 that the stories were unfounded.
“I still think he’s a great guy, and he’s a great dad. He’s just not the guy for me,” the “The Kardashians” told Robin Roberts during an interview ahead of the Hulu series release (via UsWeekly.) “I think at the end of the day, all of us aspire to have blissfulness. We want to feel happy. We want to feel safe.”
Although Kardashian seems to know where her relationship with Thompson stands despite them expecting a boy together, it remains to be seen whether her upcoming delivery would change that stance.
