Lamar Odom and Tristan Thompson share many similarities. Which is why it makes sense for Khloe Kardashian’s ex-husband to offer insight on why Tristan cheated in his relationship with the KUWK star.
In his memoir Darkness to Light, Lamar explained what the pressure and exposure of being close to the famous clan did to him. From taking his already massive ego as a basketball player to reaching a level of superstardom by appearing on his own E! reality show with Khloe — it was the beginning of the end of their seemingly perfect love story.
Khloe and Lamar eventually divorced which lead her to date and conceive a child with yet another professional basketball player, Tristan Thompson. Tristan turned out to be just another Lamar — minus the drugs and marriage.
Odom spoke to US Weekly where he speculated on why Thompson couldn’t be the man Khloe deserved.
‘I don’t know where [Tristan’s] from, but that’s a hard lane to step in if you’re not really prepared for that. I’m not sure if anybody can really prepare for that if they’re not sat down and told how it’s going to be, like all eyes on you. You can’t even understand. As for being an athlete, it made me thrive, but he caught up.’
He went on to express how bad he felt for his ex.
‘It’s too bad, he had to hurt my lady like that, that woman like that, it’s too bad.’
Meanwhile, Tristan has been living the life of a bachelor while the Kardashian has sworn off dating for now.
Lamar has already openly admitted that he would love to have another chance with the mother of one. Unfortunately for Lamar, Khloe doesn’t seem like she would give it another go.
However, the two are definitely cordial. In fact, Khloe recently contacted him about a story she read in his tell-all book.
