Lamar Odom Talks Keeping 'Distance' From Ex Khloe Kardashian, Says He Doesn't Talk to Rob
By Rachel McRady
Lamar Odom is moving forward with his life and that doesn’t include the Kardashian family. The former NBA star, 37, appeared on Wednesday’s episode of The Wendy Williams Show, where he opened up about his life after rehab.
One big change is his relationship with former “brother” Rob Kardashian.
“I mean, we were close,” Odom said of the reality star, who lived with him and Khloe for several years. “He has a child. I haven’t met his child or anything.”
When Williams asked Odom why there was a falling out, he replied, “I guess it’s maybe because I hurt his sister too much. I have no idea. I mean, if she was my sister I would have a problem with me too.”
As for Odom’s ex-wife, the basketball player claims he’s finally done with any thoughts of a romantic reunion.
“I say that with no offense to her. That would be the best for both of us, to keep our distance,” Odom insisted.
Odom has been open in the past about his shortcomings in his marriage to Khloe.
"If there is one thing I regret when I was married, it was having multiple affairs with different women," he told Us Weekly in March. "That wasn’t the stand-up thing to do."
As for the Revenge Body host, she’s moving forward with her new man, Tristan Thompson. The Cleveland Cavaliers star threw Khloe a surprise 33rd birthday party on Sunday night, and the pair are already talking about starting a family together.
"He wants to have kids now," Khloe told her sisters on a recent episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. "He said, 'I want to have kids with you, [and] if you get pregnant, you could make maternity jeans for [your clothing line] Good American."
