Lamar Odom Publicly Admitted He’s Dreamt About Khloé Kardashian And Misses Her “So Much” Weeks After Saying It’d “Be A Blessing” To Reconnect With Her In The Wake Of Tristan Thompson’s Paternity Scandal
Lamar’s latest comments come weeks after he called Tristan Thompson “corny” for cheating on Khloé once again and publicly apologizing to her for “heartbreak and humiliation.”
As you might be aware, Celebrity Big Brother is returning to screens on Feb. 2 after much anticipation.
Among the range of familiar faces starring in this year’s series — which includes Travis Barker’s ex-wife Shanna Moakler and The Real Housewives of Atlanta’s Cynthia Bailey, to name but a few — is Khloé Kardashian’s ex-husband, Lamar Odom.
Fans of the Kardashians' will likely know that Lamar — who married Khloé in 2009 after less than a month of dating — has spent recent months expressing his regret at the breakdown of their relationship.
The pair’s divorce process was paused after Lamar almost died from a drug overdose in 2015. At this time, Khloé supported the former NBA player throughout his recovery and repeatedly hinted at her hopes to rekindle things between them.
Not long after recovering, however, Lamar was spotted out at a bar drinking alcohol — prompting Khloé to restart the divorce filings once again.
Their split was ultimately finalized in 2016. Last year, Khloé revealed during the Keeping Up With the Kardashiansreunion that while she wishes Lamar the best, she no longer speaks to him.
But in spite of Khloé’s past remarks, it looks like Lamar is continuing to publicly share his feelings in the upcoming series of CBB — at least according to the sneak peeks we’ve had so far.
In a clip shared ahead of Wednesday’s season premiere, Lamar is seen telling fellow houseguest Todrick Hall: “I dreamt [about] my ex-wife last night.”
When Todrick asks who he's referring to, Lamar questions “You don't know her?” before mentioning that he’s had “just the one” ex-wife, aka Khloé.
Todrick asks if the two still talk, to which Lamar says, “No, I miss her so much. I wish I could take that time back.”
Lamar’s latest comments come just weeks after he admitted he’d love to reconcile with Khloé in the wake of a paternity scandal involving her other ex Tristan Thompson — whom she dated on and off from 2016 until 2021.
It’s unlikely that you missed it, but Tristan and Khloé have faced widespread attention in recent months, after he publicly confessed to fathering a child with another woman during their relationship.
Back in December, personal trainer Maralee Nichols said Tristan was the father of her son born that month, and she filed lawsuits against him for child support and pregnancy-related expenses.
According to the court filings, Tristan firstly confessed to sleeping with Maralee on his 30th birthday last March — the same month that he and Khloé went public with their rekindled relationship.
And though he initially refuted Maralee’s claim that he was the father, Tristan went on to concede after taking a paternity test.
Making a confession to Instagram on Jan. 3, Tristan wrote: “Today, paternity test results reveal that I fathered a child with Maralee Nichols.”
“Khloé, you don’t deserve this,” he went on. “You don’t deserve the heartache and humiliation I have caused you. You don’t deserve the way I have treated you over the years.”
“My actions certainly have not lined up with the way I view you,” he continued. “I have the utmost respect and love for you. Regardless of what you may think. Again, I am so incredibly sorry.”
Shortly after Tristan’s confession surfaced, Lamar weighed in on the entire ordeal.
According to E!, Lamar publicly commented on a Facebook post about the news. He wrote, “I truly wish nothing but the best for Khloé and I'm hoping we can reconnect and talk one day as friends,” adding that she’s “a good person” who “deserves the world.”
Days later, Lamar publicly called Tristan “corny” in a video shared by TMZ.
“It’s too bad, but she's gonna be all right,” he said of Khloé. “She’s a strong girl.”
“I would give her a hug, I haven’t seen her in a long time,” he said, describing what he’d do if he were to see her. He added that he’d advise Khloé to “be strong for her daughter,” referring to 3-year-old True, whom she shares with Tristan.
And when asked what he thinks of Tristan’s actions, Lamar said, “dude is corny for that.”
This isn’t the first time Tristan and Lamar have publicly come to blows over Khloé. Just last year, in fact, things got awkward between the three after both of the reality star’s exes found themselves feuding under one of her Instagram posts.
After Khloé posted a picture of herself showering outdoors in a bikini, both Lamar and Tristan jumped online to comment on the post.
“Hottie,” wrote Lamar alongside a series of lustful emojis, while Tristan also commented several hearts and drooling faces.
Soon after, Tristan directly tagged Lamar in another comment, writing, “God brought you back the first time. Play if you want, different results.”
Many fans interpreted Tristan’s comment as a reference to Lamar’s near-fatal drug overdose and expressed their outrage at the insensitive remark.
But despite all the drama, Khloé remained silent on the exchange between her exes and went on to continue posting to her page days later.
