It seems someone has finally gotten through to Lamar Odom — and surprisingly, that someone is Bruce Jenner! Lamar has reportedly been spending time with Bruce at his Malibu home in an attempt to get clean for his wife, Khloe Kardashian.
Lamar Odom has reportedly found an unexpected counselor and confidant in Khloe Kardashian‘s stepfather, Bruce Jenner, 64. Lamar has finally realized that he can’t beat his alleged drug addiction on his own and he’s turning to Bruce, who thinks he’s a “good soul,” for support, a new report says. Read on for more details.

Lamar, 34, has been spending a lot of time at Bruce’s new home in Malibu as he tries to work through his alleged drug issues. Bruce has even been giving Lamar advice on how to stay clean and who to hang out with, according to a new report from TMZ.
Bruce, who has said that he loves Lamar and believes he’s a “good soul,” has been telling friends that his son-in-law is clean and sober.
“Everybody’s got s**t in their life and they need to learn how to deal with it,” Bruce reportedly tells one friend. “Lamar didn’t deal with his very well.”
Bruce believes that he can help Lamar turn his life around — and it sounds like he’s already having a positive impact on the former basketball star. Lamar has been working out constantly and he is still hoping to rebuild his NBA career, sources close to him and Bruce tell TMZ.
We think it’s a great sign that Lamar is seeking guidance from Bruce and staying connected to Khloe’s family. Hopefully his efforts will get her attention because Khloe, 29, seems to be losing hope for her and Lamar’s marriage.
Khloe Kardashian Tells Her Family About Lamar Odom’s Issues
On the season eight finale of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, Khloe admitted to her family that she had been hiding her and Lamar’s problems from them for years.
In the episode, Khloe recalled her wedding with Lamar and reminisced about the intimate moments he shared with her and her family — but she also confessed that she saw signs of trouble a long time ago. Sadly, Khloe seems to have come to the conclusion that she can’t save Lamar.
“If someone, God forbid, gets their legs cut off or gets breast cancer, do you just leave someone because they’re like slowing down your life?” Khloe said. “I’m trying to help and save, but there’s nothing more I can do.”
We understand why Khloe feels so frustrated. Hopefully Bruce will have better luck helping Lamar get back on the right path.
