Following a contentious Facebook post about his ex-girlfriend Khloe Kardashian, Lamar Odom sets the record straight.
The relationship between reality star Khloe Kardashian and former NBA player Lamar Odom dates back to 2009. After only three weeks of dating, the couple married. The wedding of Lamar and Khloe was even featured in an episode of the Kardashians’ original reality show, “Keeping Up With The Kardashians.”
However, the former couple’s whirlwind romance ended when Khloe caught Lamar cheating on her while he was addicted to drugs. In 2016, their divorce was finalized.
An official Facebook account named Lamar Odom posted a throwback photo of the pair in a clingy pose, captioned “Missing my best friend #memories for life” in a recently deleted post.
The official account raised eyebrows among netizens because the user responded defensively to the post’s criticism, writing:
“Didn’t know we not allowed to miss someone regardless if mistakes were made. I’m human just like everyone else but I get it I let people down and I will pay for it forever and that’s okay too.”
According to TMZ, Lamar Odom claims he did not make the post because he has not had access to the account for years. According to Lamar’s current representative, Gina Rodriguez, any post on the official Facebook page was the work of an old manager. The former basketball player said he has “fought like hell to regain access to his socials” since parting ways with his former management.
Despite the cheating and drug-abuse scandal that ended Lamar and Khloe’s relationship, the former NBA star has voiced his concern and love for his ex-wife.
Lamar Odom recently admitted that one of his guilty pleasures is watching “The Kardashians” with his daughter, Destiny Lamar. Lamar weighed in during the release of one of “The Kardashians” previews, where Khloe appeared to cry amidst her parenting battle with Tristan Thompson, revealing that his biggest wish for the reality star was to find happiness.
“She was crying on the show and everybody was questioning her and s–t like that. That was probably a hard time for her. I just want her to be happy. That’s it.”
