(SL) – The irony of the Kardashians being by Lamar Odom’s side is heavy considering Kim seemed to be sickened by the thought of Khloe continuing to care about the former Laker’s well-being. And other family members repeatedly told her she deserved better. Subsequently, to see the TV family rally around the fallen hoops star is questionable to say the least. Will there be an episode in the upcoming season of Kardashians based on Lamar’s overdose? Of course there will. In one way or another it will. The constant references and exploitation were clearly getting to Lamar as he expressed disgust and threatened to expose the family if they didn’t leave him and his likeness off of the show.
The NY Post reports, Odom, 35, and Khloe, 31, filed for divorce in 2013, but he remained an unwilling, off-screen character on the show. He reportedly begged his estranged wife to stop airing his phone calls and to stop using him as a plot point, but she refused.
“She would tell him, ‘You owe me this after you humiliated me by cheating with other women,’” a source told Radar.
It was reported that Odom became extremely upset last Sunday night after an episode aired in which Khloe once again humiliated her husband. Odom’s best friend had died of drug-related causes, and he’d called Khloe for consolation. She then self-servingly told the cameras that “I’m really on high alert for Lamar because anything, I think, will cause him to spiral and that’s really the last thing I want for him.”
Later in that same episode, Khloe said “my heart dropped to my stomach” when she heard that Odom might have shown up at one of her paid nightclub appearances. Her sister Kim told cameras that the idea of Khloe still talking to Odom “makes me sick.”
