Khloe Kardashian seems stuck in the middle of a beef between her exes Lamar Odom and Tristan Thompson. The former's comment on her latest Instagram post apparently did not sit well with Tristan. He ended up taking a dig at the ex-basketball player by mocking his "near-death" experience.
The online drama comes days after Khloe Kardashian officially called it quits with Tristan Thompson amid new cheating scandals.
Khloe and Tristan have always made news for their on and off relationship. The Boston Celtics player has been allegedly involved in several infidelity scandals during their relationship.
Following Tristan Thompson’s infamous cheating controversy with Jordyn Woods, his relationship with Khloe Kardashian suffered a major setback. However, the reality TV star eventually admitted to forgiving Tristan. She gave the relationship another chance, especially for their daughter True.
Unfortunately, Tristan found himself in the middle of another scandal after allegedly getting caught cheating on Khloe once again at a recent party in Los Angeles. The latest controversy was the final nail in the coffin, prompting the Keeping Up with the Kardashians (KUWTK) star to part ways with him.
Before beginning the highly publicized whirlwind romance with Tristan Thompson, Khloe Kardashian was married to Lamar Odom. The model met the basketball player at a party in 2009. They decided to tie the knot after a month of dating and married on September 27th, 2009.
Khloe also adopted her now-former husband’s surname in the same year. However, she filed for divorce in 2013 and appealed to remove her last name legally. Although the couple officially agreed to legal separation, the divorce was on hold due to Lamar’s hospitalization.
The divorce was officially confirmed in December 2016. Khloe met Tristan and reportedly started dating him the same year.
Lamar Odom x Tristan Thompson beef over Khloe Kardashian’s recent IG post explained
Khloe Kardashian recently took to Instagram to share a snap from an outdoor shower while soaking in the sun. The post apparently garnered attention from both her exes Tristan Thompson and Lamar Odom, leading to an online brawl between the two.
Tristan reportedly came across Lamar’s comment that addressed Khloe as a “hottie.” The former then ended up throwing shade at his fellow pro athlete for his statement, saying:
“God brought you back the first time. Play if you want different results.”
Tristan’s pointed statement refers to Lamar’s drug overdose case that gave him a near-death experience. In October 2015, the former LA Lakers player was hospitalized after being found in a brothel in Nevada, Las Vegas.
Lamar Odom suffered from a coma and critical organ failure as a result of the overdose. He also ended up on life support and was admitted to Los Angeles hospital for nearly three months.
The incident also led to Khloe Kardashian withdrawing the divorce petition for a brief while to undertake medical decisions for the then 36-year-old.
During an appearance on Kevin Hart’s “Cold as Balls,” Lamar Odom opened up about the fatal effects of the overdose:
“My heart stopped twice. I had twelve seizures and six strokes. My lungs collapsed, and my kidneys ruptured. I was on life support. Everyone I’d ever loved was looking at me through bleary eyes.”
Despite the odds, the 41-year-old had a miraculous recovery. Odom also admitted that he had to bid goodbye to his basketball career earlier than usual due to addiction issues.
