Fans were shocked when they heard that Bruce was dating Kris Jenner’s ex-bestie Ronda, but Lamar knew about their love affair all along, a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. Here’s why Lamar kept Bruce’s secret from ex Khloe Kardashian.
Bruce Jenner, 64, may have hidden his new relationship with Ronda Kamihira from his family but his friend Lamar Odom, 34, knew all about it! So is Khloe Kardashian, 30, mad at Lamar for keeping such an important piece of information from her? Here’s what we know.
Lamar Odom On Bruce Jenner’s Romance With Ronda Kamihira: Why He Kept Secret
Kris Jenner, 58, feels completely “humiliated” and “duped” by Ronda and Bruce. And we can’t help but wonder whether some of her suffering could have been avoided had Lamar given Khloe a heads up about Bruce’s new romance.
So why didn’t Lamar tell Khloe, or anyone else for that matter?
“Bruce was one of the only people who stood by Lamar and supported him when he was at his worst,” our source explains. “Bruce was like a father and a mentor to him during that time and even now.”

Of course, Bruce’s shocking relationship with Kris’ ex-BFF affects the whole family, even Khloe, and she feels conflicted about Lamar’s tight-lipped policy when it comes to her stepdad Bruce.
“On one hand, Khloe’s pissed at Lamar for not giving her the heads up about this so she could then confront Bruce about the situation and calm things down before it got in the press,” our source says.
On the other hand, Khloe is “all for” Lamar “keeping his mouth shut and being loyal to Bruce. She knows it’s hard for people to be honest and loyal in their family circle, as we now know. So in the end, she’s not mad at Lamar. Khloe respects Lamar’s loyalty to Bruce. His decision earned him major cool points with Khloe.”
