Lamar Odom is said to want Khloe Kardashian back and believes Tristan Thompson does not deserve her.
Tristan Thompson ‘doesn’t like’ Lamar Odom, but he’s ‘sure’ he can be the man his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian ‘always wanted him to be.’
Lamar Odom, 42, is rumored to be considering a reconciliation with Khloe Kardashian, 37, six years after their divorce. The former Los Angeles Lakers star is aware of his ex-problems wife’s with her on-again, off-again lover Tristan Thompson, 30, including his latest paternity controversy, and he appears to want to be there for her again.
«Lamar is desperate for another opportunity with Khloe. He despises Tristan and believes he is unworthy of Khloe,» a source told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY. «Lamar has made a complete 180 in his life. He gives God credit for everything.
He was able to save him. He’s been concentrating on keeping his circle tiny lately. He never wants to be around terrible people again. He believes he can be the man Khloe has always wished for.»
Lamar, who married Khloe in 2009, has come a long way since his near-fatal overdose in 2015, and he appreciates his ex-wife, who was by his side during that terrifying and unpredictable period. «After everything he’s been through, Lamar’s a genuinely nice person who can smell BS from a mile away, which will help him stay on track,» the source stated.
«He’s in it for the long haul, and he’s not going to do it again.» He is unmarried and avoids toxic relationships because that is where his tendencies began. He believes that all basketball players struggle with celibacy. They’ll never be able to commit to just one woman. Lamar had had enough of it. He had lost the most important thing in his life: time with his children. He’s now a man of God with a team behind him.»
«He will always adore Khloe,» the source added before acknowledging, «I think Khloe should have helped him more.» Because he’s the father, she gives Tristan more opportunities.»
Although Khloe and Lamar had their own troubles as a couple in the past, another insider EXCLUSIVELY revealed that he «will always have a soft spot in his heart» for her and «knows he messed up with her» and «would do everything to go back in time and make things right.»
«But he’s aware that they’ve both gone their separate ways in life at this point,» the source continued. But that doesn’t rule out the possibility of a rekindled romance with Khloe. Even though he doubts it would ever happen, he remains hopeful and would like to rekindle his friendship with her. Lamar will always put Khloe on a pedestal, and he loves her unconditionally.»
It’s unclear whether Khloe and Lamar will renew their romance in the future, but there’s a chance, according to a previous source who told People that the Keeping Up with the Kardashians star has vowed to never return to Tristan.
The source told the magazine, «She has a terrific support system.» «They’re assisting her in moving on.» Tristan’s relationship with her has come to an end. She declares that she will never accept him back.»
