One of the hardest things that you may need to deal with in your life is seeing your former love interest move on to bigger and better things. For Lamar Odom, he must find himself with many long nights looking at the ceiling and wondering how it all slipped away. He was in a relationship with one of the most famous people on the entire planet. That's right, Khloe Kardashian was his wife!
Though, to be frank, when you have a rampant addiction to heavy substances and you decide that being faithful to your partner is overrated (as Lamar Odom did) nobody is going to blame Khloe for sending him packing. She stuck by his side for long enough that he came back into the real world, and she filed for divorce.
She filed for the divorce despite (as you'll read) his admittedly impressive cardio skills off the basketball court. And we aren't talking about in the gym either. One thing that may make their divorce all the more difficult on Lamar is the fact that Khloe has come out and stated that part of her healthy turnaround - that led to the unbelievable results which we document below - was due to their relationship ending. She wanted to have what she calls "a revenge body" to show hit what he is missing out on.
If Lamar Odom hasn't already managed to clean up his life, perhaps these unbelievable photos and tremendous words of advice from Khloe will help him turn that corner!
15 Her Divorce Pushed Her To Work Out
There are many benefits to going to the gym that extend beyond the physical changes. And while Khloe has clearly benefitted from the latter, we're sure if you asked her, she would say that the positive impact the gym had on her mind would be the biggest alteration. She has actually stated that "With my divorce, and even during the end of my marriage before it even got publicly bad, how I decided to cope with things was to go on the treadmill for an hour,". One thing that might not make photos like this any easier for Lamar to digest is the knowledge that his actions pushed her to get even better looking! He definitely made a big mistake.
14 Lamar Ruined His Life With His Demons
Khloe Kardashian is incredibly happy with her current relationship. But one of the reasons as to why she may be so happy is because her marriage to Lamar Odom was just that horrific. When writing about his experiences in the marriage to The Player's Tribune, Odom revealed the extent of his addiction: "It will turn you into a different person. It will put you in situations where you say to yourself, ‘How did I get here?'”. He may be asking that same question to himself now that he realizes he lost one of the most beautiful and influential women on the planet to another NBA star! That definitely has to add insult to injury.
13 Looking Amazing At Her Surprise Birthday Party
Lamar Odom may find himself missing Khloe Kardashian, but that feeling definitely isn't one that is mutual; at least in a romantic sense. One thing that may help remind Khloe that she has a winner on her hands is the sweet effort he went to throw her a surprise birthday party back in 2017. While he made sure that all her friends and sisters were there, Khloe also once said, "No party is complete without cocktails! My friends all have different tastes when it comes to their drink of choice, so I like to maintain a well-stocked bar... to keep everyone happy," so you can imagine the drinks were flowing. Especially because the next day Khloe tweeted out asking for tips on dealing with the aftermath.
12 Talking About Her Favorite Fashion Item
There are many different styles of clothing and accessories that a woman can utilize to help accentuate some of their most desirable features. For Khloe Kardashian, the most-need ace in the hole comes from the shoes on her soles. "I love all of my shoes! It is a must to have them colour coordinated and to be able to see each and every one of them", revealed Khloe. Which means if you're one of her sisters and you ever choose to borrow a pair, that you better make sure you return it. While her outfit in the above photo is tremendous, perhaps you agree that the long matching boots might be the best part. Wonder if she was repping that colour for the Lakers that Lamar used to play for.
11 Lamar Was Caught Cheating
When you look at this photo of Khloe Kardashian, you may agree that if Tristan Thompson was a smart man, that he'd make sure he never strays too far from Khloe's side. Let's just hope she doesn't have too many trust issues from her previous marriage to Lamar Odom.
When discussing the lowest point of his life, Odom admitted that Khloe once walked in on him in a motel room with another woman, and that wasn't the worst of it “I’m a millionaire. I’d made it out of Jamaica, Queens, and won two NBA titles. And I’m in a motel, with some random person". He better have kept her number, seeing as Khloe isn't going to be giving him any more second chances.
10 Why She Refuses Plastic Surgery
Khloe Kardashian knows that the world is always going to be staring at every inch of her body and question on whether or not she has had features get artificially enhanced. And while she cannot do much to stop that, one thing she can do, is put out quotes like our next one where she said "I'm proud of myself. I could break and go get all this plastic surgery and get my nose fixed and get lipo or do whatever, but I haven't chosen to do that because I know I'm a great person if you ask me." After looking at the above photo we have on display of her, you may find yourself agreeing with her statement!
9 She Knows She Doesn't Look Like A Typical Model
Khloe Kardashian may look amazing in our next entry, but it definitely took her a while to learn what her own sense of style was and what she needed to do to help herself stand out from the crowd. When talking about one of her bigger missteps in the world of fashion, Khloe revealed "I used to follow trends and try to do exactly what I saw in the magazines, but I'm not a Victoria's Secret model who can wear anything." While she may still feel she is correct in that statement, she has definitely learned how to dress for her body. As a matter of fact, many people might actually say she looks even better than most models. Lamar Odom is definitely kicking himself right now.
8 The Role of Working Out On Her Diet
When you look at photos like this, it becomes abundantly clear that Khloe Kardashian is no stranger to the weight room or eating right. And just like you may have also experienced in your own personal life if you've tried to aspire to improve your fitness goals, those two tasks went hand-in-hand
"It wasn't until I began to work out in earnest that I became aware of what I was eating. When I became more mindful about exercise, I became more mindful about eating," admitted Khloe. Becoming a mother should also increase the amount of awareness Khloe has towards what she eats. Her new outlook on life is something Lamar Odom should adapt.
7 She Knows The Ramifications Of Being a Kardashian
Khloe Kardashian knows that there are ramifications of living her life under a microscope. "We live in the public eye, so if one of us makes a mistake, it affects everyone, which makes me think about what I'm doing in life more," stated Khloe. We're sure that also includes making sure that when she goes out of the house for some time on the town, that she makes sure she doesn't make tabloid headlines for anything awkward of embarrassing like a wardrobe malfunction. Though it's not like a Kardashian showing off some serious skin is anything new! Her divorce definitely made headlines, so we doubt she would want more attention by letting Lamar back into her life. She doesn't seem to miss him too much.
6 She Loves Doing Her Makeup
Khloe Kardashian has many people employed that help make her life run smoother. One of the most important may be a hair stylist, "I love doing my makeup - mostly because I'm pretty good at it. What I can't do is hair," admitted Khloe. Perhaps it helps growing up with sisters who were probably always spending hours trying on various types of makeup. And judging by how amazing her hair looks with our next entry, it's clear that the person that she did pay to help out definitely earned their paycheque! She is probably the most beautiful woman Lamar Odom ever managed to be with, and he let it all slip away.
5 Lamar Did Have Other Skills
Khloe is locked down for the foreseeable future, but there was a time in her life where she was not only entertaining the affections of Lamar Odom but also French Montana. One of Lamar's fondest memories may have been when tabloid reports started surfacing that it was his skills in the sheets that helped Khloe prefer him “Khloe can’t get over it. She’s been secretly still seeing Lamar on the side, which French doesn’t know anything about. If he did, he would be really upset," said a source when talking to HollywoodLife.com. Which means Lamar also probably has plenty of fond memories to make him all the more sad. To think even after all he put her through, she still admires his amazing skills. Unbelievable!
4 The Mental Benefit Of Working Out
You can imagine that Tristan Thompson is incredibly frustrated with how the Cavaliers have performed at parts of the year. Not to mention the decline in his own play. But if he asked Khloe for some advice on how to get that frustration out, he may find himself in better shape on the court
"I genuinely enjoy sweating out my frustrations and living a healthier life. My workouts are not all about vanity. They are about clarity for my mind and soul," stated Khloe in a past interview. Perhaps if Lamar reads this list and gets frustrated then he'll also find himself on the treadmill. It's never too late to get back in shape, especially to impress your old flame.
3 Insecure About Her Face
Our list is going to be full of photos that will make Lamar Odom regret his life choices and leave Khloe feeling pretty amazing about herself. But when she was talking about what her insecurities are in the past, Khloe stated "I have moles and freckles, and they irritate me. They are an insecurity of mine, and I wish I could have clear, beautiful skin." While there is nothing wrong with having areas of your body that you are insecure about, we're sure she would appreciate it if Tristan complimented her on how her freckles compliment the rest of her body. She has a beautiful face, and we're sure Lamar dreams about it wishing he still had the real thing.
2 Showing Her Love Of Leopard Print
When you first glance at the outfit that Khloe is wearing for our next entry, you may first think she is wearing a significant amount of leopard print. And while you'd be right, perhaps you won't hold it against her. Especially because along with looking amazing, Khloe once revealed "Leopard print has been my thing forever! When I was a teenager my entire room was done in leopard print - it's timeless, chic, and always in style. When in doubt... leopard!" Which means you should also be able to expect her future baby to have at least one leopard print onesie! She sure pulls off the look, and she definitely got over Lamar faster than a leopard can pounce on its prey.
1 Her Advice For Aspiring Gym Users
Khloe Kardashian is not just a gorgeous woman, she's also a talented model who has lent her name and face to various different companies advertising campaigns. One of her most lucrative deals came with the health brand, Protein World. The company prides itself on trying to promote a "30 day challenge" to try and motivate people to start working out. Khloe has advice of her own, once taking to social media to say "For those starting training or already aiming for a goal, my biggest piece of advice is to remind ourselves that we all have to start somewhere. I also love that someone once told me you can't get it all in one day. You have to remember to set realistic goals".
