Is Lamar Odom back in the picture? While Khloé Kardashian is still getting over her recent breakup with Tristan Thompson, the KUWTK star's ex-husband appears ready to swoop in and take the NBA star's place.
OK! previously reported that Odom made his crush on his ex-wife known when he commented "Hottie" on Kardashian's sexy Instagram photo of herself rinsing off in an outdoor shower, posted Friday, June 9.
According to sources, Odom wants to reconcile with the mother-of-one and felt an Instagram comment was the perfect opportunity for him to shoot his shot, since Kardashian is no longer with Thompson.
While Thompson may no longer be Kardashian's boyfriend, he certainly didn't seem to appreciate her ex-husband's comment — and he made that very clear. Thompson also took to Kardashian's comment section, leaving a series of hearts and drooling emojis (how romantic!).
Apart from the Boston Celtics player's sweet comment — following rumors that he cheated on Kardashian once again — Thompson took a low blow shot at Odom's 2015 near fatal stroke at a Las Vegas brothel. Under Odom's comment, the 30-year-old replied: "God brought you back the first time. Play if you want different results."
Meanwhile, the insider told TMZ that Odom, who was married to Kardashian from 2009-2016, wasn't trying to disrespect Thompson — he just figured he'd try to get Kardashian's attention since she's single now. The 41-year-old also believes Thompson keeps fumbling when it comes to his relationship with Kardashian, said a source, seemingly referring to the continuous allegations of Thompson being unfaithful.
OK! reported that the exes' social media rivalry comes after Kardashian and Thompson called it quits (again) in June following new cheating rumors. Most recently, the father-of-two was caught going into a "private room" with three women at a celebrity party.
His latest scandal comes after he famously cheated on Kardashian just days before she was due to give birth to their three-year-old daughter, True. One year later, he was seen kissing Kylie Jenner's ex-BFFL Jordyn Woods at a party.
While the kiss with Woods appeared to be the final straw for Kardashian — as the co-parents briefly broke up — the reality star took her baby daddy back last summer. However, it seems the serial cheater just couldn't help himself, with new claims surfacing earlier this year that he hooked up with Instagram model Sydney Chase after the on-again-off-again couple reconciled.
In April, Chase appeared on Adam22's "No Jumper" podcast, claiming she had a sexual relationship with Thompson because he allegedly "told [her] he was not in a relationship anymore." The brunette beauty also insisted she had dirty texts from the NBA star and claimed he told Chase that Kardashian wasn't his type.
Despite the never-ending drama, Thompson's flirty Instagram comment on her Friday post seems to indicate that the former Cleveland Cavaliers player hasn't accepted their split.
As for Kardashian's relationship with Odom, she filed for divorce from the retired NBA pro because she could no longer deal with his substance abuse issues and admitted infidelity.
