Lamar Odom’s tough upbringing has been well-documented on his former show “Khloe & Lamar,” as he’s spoken many times about his mother passing away when he was young and his father hardly ever being around.
But now it seems Odom has a new father figure in Bruce Jenner, despite the divorce between him and Khloe Kardashian. According to reports, the two have bonded over their recent divorces, as Jenner is in the process of ending his 22-year marriage to the Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner.
According to Wetpaint Entertainment, Jenner has been counseling Odom and continues to feel empathy for him, since he knows what it’s like to be part of the Kardashian media circus.
“Bruce knows the ins and outs of how the Kardashian women are and how they operate,” said a Wetpaint source. “He knows all the manipulation and how they sell everything about their lives for money. Both Lamar and Bruce aren’t those people, and they despise all of that bulls–t.”
Jenner even has a celebration in the works when both divorces are final.
“Bruce already hit him up and said ‘Don’t worry about a thing. You’ll be fine, son. Once it’s all over, let’s have a bottle of champagne,’ ” said the insider. But despite Jenner and his ex-wife being on the outs, Kris Jenner says they’ve actually been getting along much better.
“We don’t bicker as much,” said Kris in an interview with RadarOnline.com. “We were starting to sound like an old sitcom from the 50s. I listened to myself and didn’t like me. Everyone is happier.”
And although Bruce is schooling Odom on how to properly get divorced and teaching him how to recover from being married to a Kardashian, Bruce himself can’t seem to stay away.
“Bruce came over last night because he just had to see the tree again,” said Kris. “It’s really fun. I get so excited during the holidays. I get excited when he’s coming over. We enjoy seeing each other more now.”
