Lamar Odom has admitted that things with Tristan Thompson “could have turned ugly” after Tristan threatened him on a racy picture of Khloe Kardashian.
The pair – both now exes of the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star – both left comments on the reality tv star’s social media post.
Lamar, 41, commented “hottie” on ex-wife Khloe’s post and it appears as though the words left on the 37-year-old’s post in the shower riled her most-recent ex Tristan, 30.
Tristan snapped back: “@lamarodom God brought you back the first time. Play if you want, different results.”
The message referred to Lamar’s near-death experience in 2015 after he was found unconscious in a brothel in Las Vegas following the use of drugs.
The star had to be put on life support after he slipped into a coma and the events made headlines worldwide, with Khloe – who had split from the sportsman – staying by his side as he recovered.
But despite Tristan’s vicious reply, Lamar refused to be embroiled into a spat and simply said “he made a mistake”.
He admits that the situation could have got a lot worse but he told The Megan Pormer show that he forgives Tristan because they don’t really know each other, are both Black men and are part of the NBA fraternity.
He went on to admit that he has an “armour” that can protect him from such words and said he wishes Tristan the best.
It had been reported that Lamar – who was married to Khloe between 2009 and 2016 – was looking to rekindle their romance before he left the cheeky comment on her post.
Sources told TMZ: “Lamar wasn’t trying to be disrespectful, he just figured out it was fine to shoot his shot because Khloe and TT are broken up again after new allegations he was cheating.”
On the cheating rumours, Lamar again refused to get into an ugly confrontation with Tristan. He added: “I’m not one to judge on how he tends to treat a woman.
“I wish it didn’t have to be that woman, but I’m a man so I guess I can understand.”
Khloe laughed of the two men’s conflict and was reportedly unbothered by the spat.
A source told E! News : “Kardashian thinks the IG comments from Lamar and Tristan were childish.
“She hates they were publicly acting like that, but also had a laugh.”
