The pictures and captions on Lamar Odom’s Facebook page of ex-wife Khloé Kardashian were not posted by Odom, according to reports. The former NBA player purportedly hasn’t had access to the account in years and it’s still being controlled by a former manager. Odom engaged in a dispute to regain control of his social media accounts from his former management after severing ties. He has been unable to regain access to Facebook.
Earlier this week a post of the former couple with the caption “Missing my best friend #memories for life” made its way around the internet and fans reacted.
After receiving some backlash a defense of the post went up, and many assumed it was Odom.
“Didn’t know we not allowed to miss someone regardless if mistakes were made. I’m human just like everyone else but I get it I let people down and I will pay for it forever and that’s okay too.”
It is unclear how and why the manager still has control of the Facebook account, especially since Odom is no longer being represented by him/her.
Odom and Kardashian married in 2009. The couple had their own reality show “Khloé & Lamar.” The couple divorced in 2016, due in large part to Odom’s sobriety issues.
At one point it got so bad for Odom he was comatose in a Las Vegas hospital for three days after being found unconscious at a brothel.
In the years since, Odom has released a documentary, “Lamar Odom: Reborn,” detailing his experimentation with psychedelics to treat his depression and drug addiction. He’s been very open and honest about his addictions and the depths to which he sunk and what he hopes people will learn from it.
“I had unleashed a demon,” Odom said. “Coke and sex went together every time after that. They had to intertwine. Maybe sharing my story and the moments I’m not so proud of is one of the reasons for my higher power saving me. Maybe I’m here to help other people.”
Odom has been working on maintaining his sobriety since that low point and still watches his ex-wife on Hulu’s “The Kardashians.” Despite no longer being together, he still has deep feelings for his ex-wife.
“She was crying on the show and everybody was questioning her and s— like that,” Lamar said after watching the first episodes. “That was probably a hard time for her. It’s always going to be hard for me to watch someone I love so much sad like that.”
Odom was selected fourth overall in the 1999 NBA draft by the Los Angeles Clippers. He played 14 seasons in the league, was a two-time champion with the Los Angeles Lakers, and was Sixth Man of the Year in 2011.
He played collegiately at Rhode Island for one year (1998-1999), where he was named Atlantic-10 rookie of the year. This following a distinguished prep career where Odom played for legendary New York City high school Christ The King. He was a two-time Parade All-American and the Parade Player of the year in 1997.
