Lamar Odom continues to grieve over his best friend, Jamie Sangouthai’s, death, and he’s been leaning on Khloe Kardashian for comfort. In fact, her immense support has made him fall in love with her all over again, HollywoodLife.com learned EXCLUSIVELY.
Lamar Odom, 35, has been understandably distraught after his BFF Jamie Sangouthai, 37, passed away from an apparent drug overdose. As he copes with his loss, he’s been falling deeply in love again with estranged wife Khloe Kardashian, 30, after seeing how supportive and loving she’s being during this trying time. Find out all the EXCLUSIVE details.
“The one good thing that could come out of this is that Lamar has a newfound appreciation for Khloe. He’s completely crushed right now and she’s there for him. It’s making him love her all over again,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. This has been an awful time for both Khloe and Lamar, and it really is tough times that bring people closer together.
When Lamar learned that lifelong best friend Jamie had passed away, he was heartbroken. The pair had grown up together in Queens, New York and had each other’s backs through thick and thin. However, the friends had a falling out shortly before Jamie’s death, and Lamar felt terribly guilty that they had left things so unresolved. Khloe saw how much pain he’s been in — she loved Jamie too and has been mourning herself — and Lamar has noticed her gestures.
Khloe Kardashian Hopes Jamie Sangouthai’s Death Is A Wake Up Call For Lamar Odom
Lamar’s been crying his eyes out, and Khloe has reached out to him just to see if she can help. Though she doesn’t know what to do, that’s enough to make Lamar happy. “Khloe tracked Lamar down and has been talking to him,” an insider told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. “She’s been amazing, listening to Lamar’s pain and being a shoulder to cry on. She’s been his emotional rock during this heartbreaking tragedy.”
It seems like this terrible event has finally gotten Lamar ready to fight for his wife again, and for good. Though the married couple split in 2013, they have never formally divorced — and there has to be a reason for that. Khloe is hoping that Jamie’s tragic death is the catalyst to help Lamar realize that he needs to get his life together and get help once and for all. He needs to defeat his demons and go get Khloe, healthy and happy.
