OK, so it’s been nearly four months now since we first learned that Khloe Kardashian is pregnant with her first child.
Or one month, if you just want to go from her confirmation of the big news.
Either way, that’s a pretty decent about of time for Lamar Odom to hear about the news and to come to terms with it.
Or at least to come to terms with it enough to be able to give a statement on the subject without coming across as a little bit shady, right?
Lamar makes an appearance in an upcoming episode of Mancave, a talk shot on BET, and he was asked about Khloe’s pregnancy.
“I’m happy for her,” he said. “She took care of me. She’ll be a good mother, for real. She’s a great woman.”
And that part is sweet, right?
It’s also very, very true.
We all remember how, back in 2015, Lamar suffered an overdose that very nearly killed him, and how Khloe stayed by his side, even though they were going through a divorce.
She even called off the divorce so that she’d be able to help make medical decisions for him when he was unable to do so himself.
We heard about how she rarely left his side while he was in the hospital — if she ever did at all — and how she was so intent to stay with him that she didn’t even shower when things were touch and go there for a while.
She said then that she stayed with him because while their marriage obviously didn’t work out, she still had love for him, and she couldn’t just abandon him in such a time.
So she did take care of him, in a very real way.
But this next thing that Lamar said in the interview?
Well, it wasn’t quite so sweet …
“I still got my shawty’s name still on me, her initials still on me,” he said, referring to the matching tattoos he and Khloe got on their hands when they were married.
“But for no reason,” he clarified.
He said that “I understand when it’s over, it’s over. When she was with her second or third NBA ball player, I could see that.”
Damn, Lamar, don’t hold back!
We get that he’s probably just joking around, or trying to make light of a difficult situation, and of course the Kardashians have always appreciated professional athletes for boyfriends.
But this just seems a little too catty, you know?
It’s not like Khloe ran through NBA players after filing for divorce — which she did, by the way, at least in part because Lamar publicly cheated on her.
The only serious relationships she had between Lamar and Tristan Thompson were with French Montana, a rapper, and James Harden.
She was rumored to be dating Rick Fox for a little while in there, too, so Tristan would make her third NBA player after Lamar.
But regardless of the types of men she decides to date, it’s obvious that she’s very happy right now, way happier than she was during much of her marriage to Lamar here.
And really, that’s what counts.
