Rob Kardashian and Lamar Odom used to be SUPER tight. After all, Rob did live with Lamar and his wife, Rob’s sis Khloe Kardashian, for awhile. But while the two USED to do nearly everything together, they’ve been eerily distant lately — HollywoodLife.com has the EXCLUSIVE on why!
Rob Kardashian, 29, and Lamar Odom‘s, 36, intense bromance has significantly cooled off since the good old days when Rob was Lamar and Khloe Kardashian‘s, 31, roomie. But what gives? The duo used to be so close! HollywoodLife.com has EXCLUSIVELY learned the touching reason why the two have kept their distance. And it’s probably not what you think!
“Both Lamar and Rob spent a lot of time battling their demons and were not always the best influences on each other, and that is the reason why they are not spending a lot of time together right now,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “They are both on the road to recovery, and as much as they love and miss each other, they are respecting each other’s space and giving each other room to heal.”
Wow, how mature! Although Rob and Lamar used to be tight, it’s refreshing to see that they both acknowledged their relationship had been detrimental lately. And although this was probably a tough decision for them both, we don’t blame the reality stars for making it!
After all, Rob has been majorly struggling with his weight and hanging around Lamar — who can eat whatever he wants and stay lean — was probably not the best example for Rob and his troublesome eating habits. And Lamar, who nearly died in 2015 due to a drug overdose, has needed an abundance of positive energy around him, which lately Rob probably hasn’t been able to give him.
We’re just glad the two didn’t end their friendship indefinitely and aren’t on bad terms with each other. More drama in the Kardashian klan is the last thing that family needs right now! Between the Kanye West, 38, Twitter rants and the everlasting feud between Kylie Jenner, 18, and Rob’s girlfriend, Blac Chyna, 27, we’re relieved to learn that Rob and Lamar are just doing them right now — no hard feelings involved.
Even better, it seems as if their distance has been paying off! Rob has found love with Blac and the two are even strongly considering marriage — and a baby — while Lamar has made a miraculous recovery and has been repairing his estranged marriage with Khloe. Sometimes welcoming only positive vibes is the healthiest thing you can do and Rob and Lamar are living proof!
