Lamar Odom says he and Khloe Kardashian are ‘just meant’ to be friends

Lamar Odom has heaped praise on his ex-wife Khloe Kardashian and admitted they were “just meant” to be friends.

The 39-year-old basketball player – who was married to the reality TV star from 2009 until 2016 – has nothing but kind words to say about his former spouse and said she would have taken naturally to be being a mom to her 17-month-old daughter, True Thompson, because she took “care” of him through the ups and downs of their four-year relationship.

Speaking to PEOPLETV’s “Reality Check”, he said: “Well, I think we’ve both matured over time. I wish her all the best.

“She’s a mother now, and she took care of me for four years, so I know she won’t have any problems taking care of a child.

“But I wish her all the best. It’s just meant for us to be friends.”
