Lamar Odom says that he’s really happy for Khloé Kardashian.
Odom’s ex-wife is expecting her first child with her NBA boyfriend, Tristan Thompson, and her ex was reportedly nothing but supportive in a recent interview with Access airing on Monday, February 26.
“To tell you the truth, it couldn’t happen to a better person. I was really happy for her,” Lamar Odom said during the interview. “I know if she could take care of a grown man for four years the way she took care of me, I know she could take care of a baby.”
“That’s gonna be one spoiled ass baby, too,” he added.
Lamar Odom went on to say that some of his fondest memories were from the time he spent married to Kardashian and trying to get pregnant, according to Us Magazine.
But when he was asked about Kardashian’s claims on Keeping Up With the Kardashians that she only “fake tried” to get pregnant with Odom, he admitted that her claims were “hurtful.”
“But I was going through some things at the time, so I didn’t really take it too personal,” he added.
She stood by him after he nearly died
Odom also spoke about that infamous incident when he was found unconscious and unresponsive in a brothel in 2015. Kardashian came to see him while he was recovering, and it made all the difference to him.
“I remember how good it felt. Actually, I didn’t really remember what happened. When I first woke up, I couldn’t talk or walk, so I was really scared,” he recalled. “But I was happy to see her. I tried to talk, but I couldn’t. I tried to tell her how much I loved her.”
Now, Odom says he is in a much better place, especially after the loss of his friend Rasual Butler in a car accident made him reexamine his perspective on life.
“This is the rebirth. I am here to stay. I am healthy. I am a fighter,” he said.
Only nice things to say
The last time Lamar Odom spoke publicly about his former wife his remarks incurred the wrath of his former sister-in-law Kim Kardashian.
“I knew my marriage to Khloe was over ‘when she was on her second or third NBA player,’” he revealed on Mancave’s debut.
Kim was clearly not amused by Odom’s dig, replying “Or second or third brothel.” Ouch…
