Khloe Kardashian & Lamar Odom Make Nice Over Rasual Butler Death

Recently, things between Khloe Kardashian and her ex, Lamar Odom, haven’t exactly been ideal. To the point where Lamar threw shade at Khloe that was so unkind that he got slammed by Kim.

But then, an unthinkable tragedy struck them both.

Sometimes, shared grief brings people together to make peace. It’s important to remember what really matters.

Not everyone gets along with their exes. For Khloe and Lamar, things are … more complicated.

Though their divorce was already well underway, when Lamar had his health crisis a few years ago, Khloe dropped everything to be by his side.

That included stalling their divorce process so that Khloe could continue to make decisions for Lamar until he was able to speak for himself.

(Most wives wouldn’t exactly slow down a divorce after their husband visits a brothel, but these were … special circumstances)

Fastforward to 2018, however, and though Lamar himself made a profound recovery, his relationship with Khloe has soured significantly.

As we all know, Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with Tristan Thompson’s baby.

Lamar was asked about it, and though he started off politely enough, he decided to make what sounded like an underhanded jab at his ex.

“I’m happy for her,” he said at the time.

“She took good care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”

However, after acknowledging that he still has Khloe’s initials tattooed on his body (from when they got married), he goes out of his way to clarify that he’s not pining after her. He just hasn’t gotten around to getting the tattoo removed.

“I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”

Naturally, that bit of unpleasantness was what got Kim Kardashian to threaten to ruin Lamar Odom if he comes after Khloe again.

On Wednesday morning, Rasual Butler and his wife, Leah LaBelle, died in a one-car wreck in Studio City.

Rasual was a former NBA player.

Leah was a contestant on American Idol in 2004.

It appears that the car, a Range Rover, somehow spun out of control, resulting in the deadly crash.

Many friends of the pair are in mourning over this devastating loss.

RadarOnline reports that they have learned that Khloe and Lamar buried the hatchet while both mourning the loss of their friend.

Rasual had actually appeared on Khloe & Lamar back in the day, when he was dating Malika Haqq.

A source close to Lamar reported that: “Lamar is crushed about Rasual’s death, and it was shocking for Khloe, too.”

And the tragic situation caused the exes to contact each other.

“Khloe and Lamar talked after they heard about Rasual’s death. “

And the source sheds a little insight over how the two of them are feeling.

“She told him that she was so sad about the accident. And he is numb.”

Different people respond to sudden horrible news in different ways.

Let’s be clear — this story in no way suggests that Khloe and Lamar are rekindling romantic feelings for each other.

But it’s good and healthy for exes like these two to be able to communicate in an honest way. This sadness strikes at them both.


Kim Kardashian: If Lamar Odom Shades Khloe Again, I’ll RUIN Him!!

Recently, Kim Kardashian slammed Lamar Odom on Twitter, going right for the jugular after he shared some unkind words about Khloe.

Kim’s not going to let anyone trash-talk her sister, least of all her sister’s ex. And, according to this report, she’ll go as far as it takes to keep Lamar’s trap shut — even resorting to threats to spill his secrets.

This is Lamar Odom, folks. We’re sure that Kim has plenty of ammunition.

Recently, Lamar Odom threw some shade in the direction of his ex, Khloe Kardashian.

Like all good shade, the insults weren’t direct. In fact, it started with compliments and praise.

“I’m happy for her.”

Referring, of course, to Khloe’s pregnancy with Tristan Thompson’s baby.

“She took care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”

He mentions the matching tattoos that he and Khloe got when they tied the knot.

“I got my shawty’s name still on me, her initials still on me. But for no reason.”

By which he of course means that there’s no particular reason for which he hasn’t yet gotten around to getting his tattoo removed.

Again, he just hasn’t gotten around to it. He’s not still clinging to hope or whatever.

“I understand when it’s over, it’s over.”

And this is when he gets nasty.

“When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”


And Kim Kardashian fired back on Twitter:

“Or second or third brothel,” referring to how Lamar Odom famously had a scary health crisis in a brothel.

RadarOnline reports that Kim Kardashian “is willing to do whatever it takes to keep him away from her sister.”

And apparently, she’s willing to spill Lamar’s secrets if necessary.

“Kim is all about protecting her family — and, of course, protecting her family’s image.”

That’s no surprise. The Kardashian brand is tied to their family’s image.

And just look at what Kim did to Taylor Swift when she felt like Taylor was a threat to Kanye’s image.

“After everything they did for Lamar, she won’t have him trying to make Khloe look bad, particularly when she has moved on with her life.”

RadarOnline‘s sources also claim that Kim has reached out to Lamar, privately, to caution him against speaking out against Khloe any further.

“Kim doesn’t want him anywhere near her family.”

It sounds like she feels like Lamar is toxic.

“She has made it clear that she has a ton of dirt on Lamar, and wouldn’t hesitate to spill all if it comes to that.”

Now, we don’t know that Kim is actually prepared to blackmail Lamar into being nice to his ex.

It is, however, understandable that she’s feeling so protective of Khloe. And, quite frankly, Lamar has zero room to talk.

There’s nothing wrong with hiring sex workers, of course. But there is something wrong with suggesting that Khloe is promiscuous and chases after one type of man when his own predilections are so well-known.

What other secrets does Kim have to spill, we wonder?

If Lamar does the smart thing, we may never find out.


Kim Kardashian SLAMS Lamar Odom: Go Buy a Hooker!

Earlier this week, Kim Kardashian welcomed her third child, but it seems she’s not letting the challenges of caring for an infant interfere with her ability to defend her beloved sisters with top-notch trash talk.

As we reported earlier today, Lamar Odom gave a very candid interview to BET this week, and not surprisingly, the subject of Khloe Kardashian came up.

It was Lamar’s first interview since the world learned that Khloe is pregnant with her first child, and while Lamar offered words of support, he also slipped in some not-so-subtle jabs.

“I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that,” Lamar replied when asked about his breakup with Khloe.

Kim–presumably sleep deprived and obviously pissed-off–decided she was having none of Lamar’s pettiness and she quote-tweeted the article along with a mic drop-worthy diss:

“Or second or third brothel” Kim wrote in reference to Lamar’s love of prostitutes.

(Pro tip: When someone loves hookers, you can pretty much always use that against them.)

Kim Kardashian Lamar Odom Tweet

Now, Kim is being applauded for the savagery of her burn–and rightfully so–but we’re gonna have to be the nit-picking party-poopers for a moment and point out that it doesn’t totally make sense.

The tweet makes it sound as though Khloe was on her second or third brothel, when clearly she meant to say Lamar was the brothel aficionado.

We think.

Hey, maybe she’s throwing heavy shade at Khloe, and this story’s even better than we thought!

We kid.

Most people are obnoxious perfectionists like us, so predictably, Twitter immediately exploded with praise for Kim.

Kim was praised as the “Clapback Queen,” many fans made it weird by calling her Mom (a practice we had hoped would be left in 2017), and GIFs of Kim looking like she’d just ordered the beheading of a peasant were plentiful.

Even Kim’s friend Chrissy Teigen offered praise, tweeting:

“GAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH EM,” before clarifying, “Gaht*. Gaht too excited.”

Lamar has yet to respond to the tweet, which isn’t all that surprising.

After all, we assume he’s currently being treated a nearby burn unit.


Lamar Odom: Throwing Shade at Khloe Kardashian Over Pregnancy News?!

OK, so it’s been nearly four months now since we first learned that Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with her first child.

Or one month, if you just want to go from her confirmation of the big news.

Either way, that’s a pretty decent about of time for Lamar Odom to hear about the news and to come to terms with it.

Or at least to come to terms with it enough to be able to give a statement on the subject without coming across as a little bit shady, right?


Lamar makes an appearance in an upcoming episode of Mancave, a talk shot on BET, and he was asked about Khloe’s pregnancy.

“I’m happy for her,” he said. “She took care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”

And that part is sweet, right?

It’s also very, very true.

We all remember how, back in 2015, Lamar suffered an overdose that very nearly killed him, and how Khloe stayed by his side, even though they were going through a divorce.

She even called off the divorce so that she’d be able to help make medical decisions for him when he was unable to do so himself.

We heard about how she rarely left his side while he was in the hospital — if she ever did at all — and how she was so intent to stay with him that she didn’t even shower when things were touch and go there for a while.

She said then that she stayed with him because while their marriage obviously didn’t work out, she still had love for him, and she couldn’t just abandon him in such a time.

So she did take care of him, in a very real way.

But this next thing that Lamar said in the interview?

Well, it wasn’t quite so sweet …

“I still got my shawty’s name still on me, her initials still on me,” he said, referring to the matching tattoos he and Khloe got on their hands when they were married.

“But for no reason,” he clarified.

He said that “I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”

Damn, Lamar, don’t hold back!

We get that he’s probably just joking around, or trying to make light of a difficult situation, and of course the Kardashians have always appreciated professional athletes for boyfriends.

But this just seems a little too catty, you know?

It’s not like Khloe ran through NBA players after filing for divorce — which she did, by the way, at least in part because Lamar publicly cheated on her.

The only serious relationships she had between Lamar and Tristan Thompson were with French Montana, a rapper, and James Harden.

She was rumored to be dating Rick Fox for a little while in there, too, so Tristan would make her third NBA player after Lamar.

But regardless of the types of men she decides to date, it’s obvious that she’s very happy right now, way happier than she was during much of her marriage to Lamar here.

And really, that’s what counts.


Khloe Kardashian: I’m Happier Than I’ve Ever Been — Sorry, Lamar!

If you’ve seen or heard anything from Khloe Kardashian lately, you’ve probably noticed one thing …

Well, a couple of things. There’s no denying that baby bump these days!

But besides the pregnancy — though we’re sure the pregnancy is a big part of it — she’s really just seemed so happy and peaceful, hasn’t she?

Like after so many ups and downs, she’s finally settled in a place where she wants to be in life.

It’s so nice to see.

And if you weren’t near tears over the beautiful turnaround of Khloe Kardashian’s life already, well, let her break it all down for you in this lengthy but super touching Instagram post she made today!

For her photo, she shared an older photo of herself along with a much more recent one — her “revenge body”:

Khloe Kardashian Before and After

In the caption, she wrote “Sometimes it’s hard for me to post these transformation posts only because I can’t imagine my life being this unhealthy again.”

To clarify, she added that “Never would I ever consider myself fat, but I would consider myself unhealthy mentally/physically and not knowing my true value. Mind, body and soul.”

Aww, KoKo.

“For me,” she wrote, “my transformation started from within. I needed to heal myself from the inside out.”

“Once I started putting myself first, everything started falling into place. My life transformed a few years ago when I made the decision to stop existing and start living.”

A few years ago, of course, is when she split from Lamar Odom and began focusing hard on her fitness.

She’s said many times that she began going to the gym as a way to deal with everything that was going on with Lamar — his downward spiral began while they were still together.

It must have been tough for her to file for divorce and take care of herself when so many people were convinced that they were soulmates, destined to be together forever.

But, as she explained, “I decided when I was ready regardless of what anybody else was saying about me. Regardless of the pressures. I had to do this on my terms or I knew it wouldn’t last.”

“It’s ok to take the control back,” she advised her followers. “Choose your life. Don’t let anybody else decide for you!”

“We are no victims to life but we can become victims and prisoners to the people that we choose to surround ourselves with if we allow them to break us and consume us.”

Anyone else loving this motivational speaker side of Khloe? Because we are kind of living for it.

“Never be afraid to put yourself first!” she preached. “Never choose comfort over your own well-being! Never forget that fate loves the fearless!”

“Today’s wisdom was yesterday’s pain. Tomorrow’s happiness is today’s bravery! I am so proud of myself for being stronger than I’ve ever been — mind body and soul.”

And she should be — we still don’t know all that went on with her marriage to Lamar, but just considering what we do know, it’s amazing that she’s been able to pull herself up like this.

We all saw how deeply she loved him, and we also saw how deeply he betrayed her. She definitely should be proud of her strength.

Khloe also wrote that she’s “even prouder of myself that I’ve been able to maintain a healthy lifestyle for so many years. I broke that cycle and I’m happier than I have ever been!”

“You can do this!! Start from within and nothing can stop you,” she finished. “Elevate yourself — mind body and soul.”

It’s no wonder why so many people refer to her as the best Kardashian, huh?
