Lamar Odom’s short-lived relationship with the Dallas Mavericks have come to an end! Khloe Kardashian’s hubby, whose struggles with the Mavs this season have been documented on their reality show “Khloe and Lamar”, and the team have agreed to part ways. The Mavericks aren’t formally releasing him, but Odom will be listed as inactive for the rest of the regular season and playoffs and won’t be with the team.
Lamar released the following statement:
“The Mavericks and I have mutually agreed that it’s in the best interest of both parties for me to step away from the team,” Odom tells ESPN.com. “I’m sorry that things didn’t work out better for both of us, but I wish the Mavs’ organization, my teammates and Dallas fans nothing but continued success in the defense of their championship.”
Looks like Khloe will be the breadwinner until Lam Lam gets picked up by another team.
Lamar has been going through it since he was was a kid. He lost his mom when he was 12 years old, then he had to deal with the death of the grandmother who raised him and suffered through the horrifying loss of his seven-month-old son to sudden infant death syndrome two years later. When the Lakers traded him, he took that to heart and was never the same.
Lamar will bounce back with his ride or die Khloe by his side. People thought these two wouldn’t last, but that relationship is solid and the foundation that they’ve built will get them through this rough patch.
