Rob Kardashian Has Reconnected With Lamar Odom
Phuket, April 4 -- Rob Kardashian has reportedly reached out to his sister Khloé Kardashian's estranged husband Lamar Odom to rekindle their bromance.Rob Kardashian is getting advice from Lamar Odom.
The reality star has distanced himself from his family in recent months and was noticeably absent from their holiday to Phuket, Thailand, but has reportedly decided to reach out to his former confidante, his sister Khloé Kardashian's estranged husband Lamar, in his time of need instead.
An insider told RadarOnline.com: "He has completely retreated from the family, and from his friends. But within the last few weeks, Rob has reconnected with Lamar.
"It was extremely hard for Rob when Lamar and Khloe split because first and foremost, he hated what it did to Khloé. The split also essentially had ended Rob and Lamar's relationship... they called each other brother, and meant it. There was a lot of love there."
Lamar is said to have asked Khloé's permission to rekindle his friendship with her brother and she refused to stand in their way.
The source added: "Lamar asked her if it was OK if he reached out to Rob, and of course, she said yes. No matter what happens with them in the future as a couple, Khloé wants her brother and Lamar to maintain their friendship."
The NBA star is determined to get his pal back on track as he is said to have been suffering from depression following his ugly split from Rita Ora in 2012 and has gained 50 pounds.
However, it seems camera-shy Rob has no interest in flying out to see Lamar in New York City.
The insider said: "Rob just isn't receptive to that. It has come to the point that he just hates going out because of the constant cameras always around. Lamar is planning to come to LA in the next month, and they will definitely hang out then."
