Lamar Odom is going though a super emotional and dark time right now, following the sudden death of his good friend Jamie Sangouthai — HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned that Lamar cannot stop crying.
We can’t imagine the pain Lamar Odom, 35, must be feeling right now after his best friend Jamie Sangouthai passed away of a reported drug overdose on June 14. An insider told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the former NBA star is pretty much inconsolable — so sad.
“Lamar is beating himself up over Jamie’s death. They had a big falling out not too long ago and Lamar cut him off completely. Lamar thought it was for the best, as Jamie was really struggling and looking for enablers. Now, Lamar doesn’t know if he made the right decision,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY.
“He really loved Jamie and has reached out to his family to lend his support. Lamar is going to pay for everything. The funeral any flights and hotels that the family needs,” the source added. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Jamie was rushed to the hospital on June 14. He later died of an apparent heroin overdose, TMZ claims. Jamie was heavily featured on Khloe & Lamar.
Khloe Kardashian, 30, is also having a tough time with Jamie’s death — she posted about her pain on social media a day after his death. “Life doesn’t get easier but I promise you that life will make you stronger,” Khloe wrote in her Instagram message on June 15, with a photo of a woman crying accompanying the message.
Our thoughts and prayers remain with Lamar and Jamie’s other friends and family during this difficult time.
