Lamar Odom tuned in to Thursday’s premiere of “Kardashians” — and had a “hard time” watching his ex-wife, Khloé Kardashian, struggle on screen.
The former NBA player, 42, told E! News that he wants the reality star, 38, to “find happiness…however she should” in the future.
“She cried during the show and everyone was questioning her and it was,” Odom said of the Hulu show’s season 2 premiere. “That was probably a difficult time for her.
“It will always be hard for me to see someone I love so much so sad,” the retired athlete added.
Odom’s 24-year-old daughter, Destiny, also shared her good wishes for Kardashian on Thursday.
“I just want her to be happy and healthy,” the model told the outlet.
Odom married the Good American co-creator in 2009 and the exes finalized their divorce in 2016.
Since their split, the “Celebrity Big Brother” alum has expressed a desire to “reconnect” with Kardashian amid the infidelity of her on-again, off-again boyfriend Tristan Thompson.
Thompson, 31, began dating the alum ‘Keeping Up With the Kardashians’ in 2016 and made headlines for cheating on her in 2018 and 2019. (The first time Kardashian was pregnant with their now 4-year-old daughter, True. )
Although the former couple got back together during the coronavirus pandemic and fathered a baby boy via a surrogate mother, news broke in December 2021 that Thompson had also fathered a child with fitness model Maralee Nichols.
Odom called Thompson “cheesy” the following month after the Chicago Bulls player confirmed his paternity of Theo, now 9 months, via Instagram Stories.
Odom predicted to TMZ in January that Kardashian would be “all right,” adding, “She’s a strong girl.”
Kardashian found out that Thompson was unfaithful during the June finale of “The Kardashians”, and she sobbed while on the phone with Kim Kardashian.
“I can’t fucking believe this,” the author of “Strong Looks Better Naked” said in tears.
When the show resumed its second season on Thursday, Khloé expressed mixed feelings about her son’s imminent arrival.
However, the “Celebrity Apprentice” alum felt she could “heal” once the little one was in her arms in July. She even allowed Thompson to visit the hospital, despite being “on the fence” to see him.
“Let him come,” Khloé concluded in a confessional. “He’ll never get this moment back.”
Although she and the power-forward have not yet revealed the name of their newborn baby, his face was first shown in the hospital footage.
“He looks just like True!” Kim, 41, gushed about her cousin, while Thompson later said the same.
