Lamar Odom Reveals He Hopes To See Khloé Kardashian 'Soon' After Being Evicted From 'Celebrity Big Brother'
Lamar Odom still had Khloé Kardashian on his mind when he left the Big Brother house.
The former NBA player was evicted from Celebrity Big Brother on the Monday, February 21, episode. Throughout his time on the reality show, he told his fellow housemates he missed his ex-wife and hoped to make amends.
The former couple got hitched in September 2009, only one month after they first met. The Good American cofounder filed for divorce in 2013, but the split was not finalized until 2016. Odom's struggles with addiction, a DUI arrest and cheating allegations were believed to have contributed to why the former flames called it quits.
On the way out of the Big Brother house, host Julie Chen asked the 42-year-old if he had anything to say to Kardashian if she was watching the show. "I miss you and I hope to get to see you soon," Odom replied, according to Daily Mail.
Odom thanked CBS for giving him the opportunity to appear on the show, saying: "It's been a lot, but I take my losses and wins graciously."
Todd Bridges was eliminated along with Odom. Cynthia Bailey, Miesha Tate, and Todrick Hall are still competing.

Odom also spoke to Chen about his friendship with Bridges before his exit. "Todd has been sober for 33 years now, so I asked him to be my sober coach," he explained, per the outlet. "That is why I joined the Celebrity Big Brother cast because sobriety is really important to me at this point in my life."
Odom reportedly revealed he has been sober for seven years after the athlete experienced a near-fatal overdose in 2015.
The 37-year-old has not directly commented on anything her ex-husband has said about her on CBB. In one episode, Bailey suggested he reach out to Kardashian after the show, to which he replied: "I'm going to try my damndest."
As reported by OK!, an insider revealed Kardashian was not worried about what Odom was saying about her on the show. In fact, she thought it was great he joined the reality series because it was a good opportunity for him.
His management also stated his appearance was not a "ploy" to rekindle with his ex, but: "he does regret his behavior while married to her and [whenever he is] given an opportunity to apologize privately or publicly, he does so."
