Aww! As Lamar Odom grieves the loss of his best friend Jamie Sangouthai, his spirits have been lifted by Khloe Kardashain’s sweet sentiments — and now he’s receiving moral aid from his former mother-in-law, Kris Jenner, too!
After his BFF Jamie Sangouthai passed away at 37, Lamar Odom, 35, has been reasonably distressed. As he’s anguished over his pal’s untimely death, Lamar (who has since received kind words from ex-wife Khloe Kardashian, 30) has been able to turn to her mom, Kris Jenner, 59, for support as well. A source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY that the KUWTK matriarch has told the basketball vet he’ll always be a part of the Kardashian fam. Read on for all the touching details!
“Khloe has been so worried about Lamar. She hates to see him like this and doesn’t know how to help. Khloe had her mom Kris reach out to Lamar and see if she could do anything,” a source tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY. So precious — Lam-Lam must surely appreciate all the love!
“Despite being a bad husband to Khloe, Kris absolutely loves Lamar and she too hates to see him in so much pain,” our insider explained. “Kris told Lamar he is still part of the Kardashian family and she will do anything he needs to help him get through this.”
Obviously, Mr. Odom can’t thank Kris and Khloe enough for their concern. “Lamar is really touched by the outpouring of love and support from Khloe and Kris,” the source adds.
In fact, Lamar is so taken with Khloe’s warm heart that it’s caused him to fall in love with the reality star all over again! “The one good thing that could come out of this is that Lamar has a newfound appreciation for Khloe,” a second source tells us. “He’s completely crushed right now and she’s there for him. It’s making him love her all over again.”
When Lamar discovered the heartbreaking news that Jamie had died, he was absolutely devastated and couldn’t stop crying his eyes out. The guys had been best bros ever since they were kids, growing up in Queens, NY together. While they had each other’s back for most of their friendship, Lamar and Jamie had a major falling out right before his death.
Feeling extremely guilt-ridden for never patching things up, Lamar was initially inconsolable — until Khloe came along. “She’s been amazing, listening to Lamar’s pain and being a shoulder to cry on,” our source reveals. “She’s been his emotional rock during this heartbreaking tragedy.”
