As he mourns the tragic passing of his former fellow Lakers player, it sounds like Lamar Odom has been leaning on Sabrina Parr. His fiancée has been there for him following the shocking loss of Kobe Bryant and he could not be any more grateful to her.
One insider news report claims to know that the personal trainer is making sure that her fiancé focuses on his health in the aftermath of this tragedy.
After all, Kobe’s death has affected Lamar a lot, just like it has many others!
It’s a difficult time, without a doubt but the basketball player truly appreciates all that Sabrina has been doing for him, helping him get through it somehow.
Lamar and Kobe were good friends so the shocking news that the latter had lost his life in a helicopter crash alongside his second-born daughter, 13-year-old Gianna, and seven others, was devastating.
The two were also teammates from 2004 to 2011 so there is no surprise they had a strong bond.
A source tells HollywoodLife that ‘Sabrina has been an incredible source of strength for Lamar since Kobe’s passing. She knows just how close Lamar and Kobe were and she has been doing everything in her power to really be there for Lamar in any way that she can. Sabrina also realizes that Lamar has to find his way through the grief and it is a process only he can navigate. In the meantime, she has just been working with him to focus on his health, just working out and staying positive.’
Another insider also shared with the same news outlet that even though the loss has ‘gutted’ him, Lamar wants to listen to Kobe’s advice when it comes to how he lives his life from now on.
‘Kobe was always there for him. Now, he knows that he has to approach things with Mamba mentality — Kobe would really want him to move forward that way, and to move towards success. He does not want to let his brother down.’
