Lamar Odom is again trying to score with his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian.
Now that the "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" star is single, having recently split (again!) from Tristan Thompson, Lamar is hoping to reconcile with her, according to TMZ.
The former NBA player hoped to get Khloe's attention last weekend when he posted a flattering comment on her Instagram. "Hottie," he said about a picture of Khloe that showed her showering outdoors.
Tristan, the father of Khloe's daughter, True, didn't take too kindly to Lamar's comment and posted a not-so-veiled threat. "@lamarodom God brought you back the first time. Play if you want, different results," Tristan wrote, referring to Lamar's near-fatal overdose in 2015.
The new report said Lamar wasn't trying to disrespect Tristan with the Instagram comment, but he wanted to see if his flirtation would lead to anything with Khloe. Lamar also felt that it was well within the boundaries to post the comment since Khloe and Tristan are broken up.
Thus far, TMZ says, Khloe and Lamar have not had any dialogue.
Tristan, by the way, also posted a flirtatious comment about the picture, something he has done again and again after his and Khloe's multiple splits.
A quick view of Khloe's Instagram feed shows that fans are clearly siding with Lamar, who Khloe was married to from 2009 to 2016. "Team Lamar" and "Khlomar" were written all over Khloe's comments section. A slew of others told Lamar to "get your wife back."
While many have ripped Tristan over the years for his multiple public cheating scandals, Lamar was no saint to Khloe either. She once spoke about spending her 28th birthday alone while Lamar "was missing with another girl." In his 2019 memoir, "Darkness to Light," Lamar admitted he was unfaithful to his then-wife and wrote, "That haunts me every day."
Lamar, who married Khloe after just a month of dating, also recalled a drug-fueled night in which he threatened the reality TV star.
"I'm pretty sure she had to be scared at that point in time. I'm thinking about it now, like, I couldn't believe how I was treating that queen like that. '[I owe] her and her family an apology. Big time," he said on Good Morning America when asked about the incident.
