How Khloe Kardashian Really Feels About Lamar Odom’s Surprise Engagement
Seeing your ex move on is never easy, even if you were the one who ended the relationship. Khloe Kardashian may have been the one to file for divorce from former NBA star Lamar Odom, but that doesn’t mean she is necessarily thrilled about his recent engagement.
After dealing with her own romantic turmoil and having the father of her child cheat on her very publicly, Kardashian hasn’t been in the best space when it comes to love.
Has Kardashian been holding a torch for Odom and hoping that they would one day get back together, or is she happy that her former beau has found love once again?
Khloe Kardashian and Lamar Odom’s relationship
For Odom and Kardashian, it was love at first sight. The two were married in September of 2009 after just one month of knowing one another. The pair scored their own show, Khloe & Lamar, a spin-off of Keeping Up with the Kardashians, the next year. For all intents and purposes, it seemed like the couple had a very happy relationship.
But in 2014, cracks started to show and Kardashian admitted on KUWTK that Odom had been unfaithful.
“Let me tell you something — last year on my birthday, I lied to everyone, because I had to lie and say I was with my husband, when in fact my husband was missing with another girl, OK?” she yelled. “And I lied, and I gave up my Beyonce tickets to Kendall, that’s how badly I was hiding. And I didn’t have a birthday, I was alone, and lied to everyone.”
In October of 2015, Odom was hospitalized for a drug overdose after visiting a brothel in Las Vegas. Kardashian stood by Odom’s side and helped nurse him back to health but the damage had already been done and there was no going back to the happier days of their relationship. Their divorce was finalized the next year.
Lamar Odom’s recent engagement
On Nov. 11, after just three months of being with his new girlfriend, Odom proposed to health and life coach, Sabrina Parr.
“Introducing my new fiancée!!” he wrote under a photo of the two together. “Soon to be Mrs. Parr-Odom. She the ONE!!!!! @getuptoparr.”
Parr also announced the engagement on her own Instagram.
How does Khloe Kardashian feel about Lamar Odom’s engagement?
Everyone was shocked by Odom’s sudden proposal, even his son, Lamar Odom Jr., who reportedly found out about the engagement over social media. Though it was a surprise, Kardashian wishes Odom well.
“Khloe had no idea Lamar had plans on proposing to Sabrina, but honestly she couldn’t be happier for him,” a source told HollywoodLife. “Khloe sees that Lamar is in a great place right now and if Sabrina makes him happy, then she’s happy for him.”
“Khloe wishes Lamar all the happiness in the world, she’s very happy he’s found love and hopes he will have a long and happy marriage,” another source told the outlet. “It’s unlikely she’ll reach out to congratulate him on his engagement but she wishes him nothing but the best in this next chapter.”
