Lamar Odom is working on strengthening his relationships with his two children, and a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that his ex Khloe Kardashian is very impressed by his actions. Khloe is still talking to Lamar often, and she really appreciates the fact that he is so open with his kids about his drug abuse. More exclusive details below!
Lamar Warns His Children About Drugs
At this point, it is no secret that Lamar had a vicious drug problem that caused his split with his now estranged wife, Khloe.
Now that Lamar has ditched his partying ways, he is focusing on putting his life back together. While that means he is desperately trying to rekindle his relationship with Khloe, it also means he is prioritizing his relationship with his twochildren again, too. A source close to the couple told HollywoodLife.com that Khloe and Lamar speak to each other often, if not every day, and that she is very impressed with how much he talks about his kids these days.
“She especially likes how he talks about his children and how he’s becoming more involved and present in their lives,” a source told HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. “He talks about how he reads to both his children, how he talks to them and encourages them to be great and they even discuss drugs. He made it a point to tell Khloe that he and his daughter talked about drug abuse and how he told his daughter never to try them.”
It’s so great to hear that Khloe and Lamar are still in almost constant contact, and that Lamar is putting his family before his drug addiction.
Khloe Is ‘Proud’ Of Lamar’s Progress
Even though Khloe has already filed for divorce from Lamar, our source says that she feels as if something good came out of it now that he is working on making amends with his kids.
“That makes her happy and proud to hear that. It makes her feel that the divorce wasn’t all that bad, that something good resulted from it being that Lamar is now a 100-percent hands on father,” our source continued. “She feels
really good about that.”
However, Lamar’s new found appreciation of being a father does not mean Khloe is ready to fly back into his arms and make a baby with him.
“They didn’t get that far, unfortunately. It was talked about and planned for a while but a child wasn’t dealt to them,” our source explained. “Looking back, with all the things they went through, Khloe’s glad they didn’t birth a child. That would have been devastating to her, Lamar and their child.”
